A scented Ball- Cap D’ Antibes, Cote D’Azur France 2019

Hotel Belles Rives celebrates it’s 90th anniversary and the second edition of the Ball Meilland®

written by: Alina Neacsa | 23-10-2019

What better way to celebrate the 90th spring season than at a grand ball.

The meaning of the ball

Create a unique flower (the Belles Rives® rose by Meilland), choose a flagship destination (Cap d’Antibes), promote a certain know-how (the botanic and perfume industry of the Côte d’Azur), to participate in a significant cause *.
For this second edition, the Bal Meilland® has affirmed its ambition to highlight the French Riviera’s industry by bringing together the economic actors and leaders of the local industry and, this year particularly, the perfume industry.

The profit of the evening was fully donated to the association LES FLEURS D’EXCEPTION DU PAYS DE GRASSE. Created in 2008, the association was further put forward during the recent inscription of Grasse in the Cultural and Intangible Heritage of Humanity for «The know-how related to Perfume in Grasse» by UNESCO.

Me at Bal Meilland


I was truly honored to be invited at this exquisite event by Matthias Meilland, 6th generation of the dynasty of famous rose gardeners. Meilland garden roses are my signature flowers and I became their Ambassador in Romania.
What better way to promote and understand Meilland family mission than to be a part of it? Imagine a room with 8,000 scented garden roses, different colors and shapes, all shipped from all over the world for this amazing event. Everything was so perfectly displayed: the flowers, the tables, the guests cards.
