When a party is kick-started by Gil Ofarim riding into the courtyard of Austria's Stanglwirt hotel on a white stallion accompanied by mystical sounds, you know it's going to be an evening to remember.
The very first Baldessarini fragrance was launched in Kitzbühel in 2002. Eight great fragrances later, the great and the good of the perfume world were once again invited to convene at the foot of the snow-covered Kaiser Mountains. In front of an audience of around a hundred prominent guests and friends, Werner Baldessarini presented his latest creation for the perfume house Mäurer & Wirtz – Cool Force.
Hardy Krüger Jr.
In the beautifully decorated surrounds of the resort hotel, the celebrities thoroughly enjoyed the olfactory treat on offer.
Vladimir Klitschko was one of the first to sample the new fragrance. Uschi Glas was enthusiastic about its icy-fresh kick, while heart throb Hardy Krüger Jr. and Nestor Haddaway, currently very much back in vogue, testified to the "maximum sex appeal" of the fragrance.
And what do fun-loving celebrities do once the official part of the evening is over? They dance and party all night long to live music, and keep raising their glasses to the man who brought them all together –
Baldessarini, possibly the last great party host of the German fashion and beauty scene.
