Happy New Year!


Wishing everyone the best for 2016! Hope the new year brings you much happiness.

Many thanks to Cafleurebon for including the new Pacific Forest in their Best Of 2015 fragrance list! What a wonderful way to celebrate the launch!

I can’t wait to start working on some new formulas. I have several interesting new ingredients that are calling out to be used.

Happy New Year!!

Happy Holidays!

Snoopy_xmas_hug_3Wishing all of you a very happy holiday with friends and family, however you celebrate. I’ll spend Christmas eve with my parents and will see my brother and his family for New Year’s weekend. In between, I’ll release the new Pacific Forest. 🙂

I appreciate all of you more than I can say. May the new year bring you lots of good things, and may the holiday spirit of peace, joy, and gratitude be with you throughout the coming year!

Pacific Forest, launch, review, drawing

Redwoods_LookingUp_smThe new Sonoma Scent Studio natural forest scent, Pacific Forest, is launching with samples available by the end of this week and bottles next week. It has just been beautifully reviewed by Tammy at Cafleurebon and Julie at The Redolent Mermaid. You can enter a drawing for 3 ml samples at Cafleurebon if you leave a comment there before the draw closes.

This scent is 99% natural, taking the woods notes from Forest Walk (hemlock spruce, pine, fir, oakwood, sandalwood, cedar, oakmoss) and blending them with a natural amber base. Lasting power is good for me, though sillage is low (it stays close to the body since it is natural). The drydown is a cozy woodsy amber that I hope you’ll enjoy!
