After some time as musician and teacher she realised her long-held dream of a special shop venue offering fragrances combined with music and concerts (classic, latin, chanson, tango, jazz etc.) in this shop as well as in other locations. For a few years Silvia Denk developed this concept in her hometown of Passau in her shop called „ La Vie en Rose“ - the rose as a symbol of love, fragrance, beauty, harmony and pleasure...
She then closed her shop, in order to devote all of her time to music...
