THE SPLENDORS OF CÔTE-NORD

In French, with Alain Benoit
WEDNESDAY, October 12 - 7 p.m.

BEYOND STEREOTYPES, MEN’S PERFUMERY

In French, with Nadia Bédard
TUESDAY, November 15 – 7 p.m.

This conference invites you to an evening where perfumery is presented as a playground. Beyond the ambitious, strong and virile man, perfume has the power to make you feel a little more yourself and to make sense of your history. Overstepping the diktats, we will even go as far as to question the idea that there is a perfumery for men and for women. The talks will be illustrated by a beautiful selection of perfumes that you will be able to smell during the conference.

In English, with Monica Sourour, Money & Budget Coach
TUESDAY, December 6 – 7 p.m.

I have worked with hundreds of families, coaching and guiding them to budgeting bliss! Living on a budget actually gives you so much more freedom than you think!!!
