Update: AIX Scent Fair, and YouTube Review

samplesets_sm

The photo above shows sample sets in progress for the AIX Scent Fair. I will be sharing a table with Ellen Covey of Olympic Orchids Perfumes. Ellen has kindly offered to work the table for us both; I won’t be there in person, but I am grateful for this opportunity to take part in the show. I will send testers of the whole line to the show, including a sneak peek tester of my upcoming new scent. Ellen and I will also exhibit four ingredients for fair visitors to sniff, along with examples of how we each use those ingredients in scents to achieve very different visions.

An amazing YouTube review of Winter Woods and Tabac Aurea was just posted yesterday. Thanks so much to Nicholas!

I’m working on scaling up the formula for the new hay/leather scent and will post more about it soon.  🙂

2016 Perfumed Plume Awards

logo_PerfumedPlumeThe Perfumed Plume Awards for fragrance journalism were just announced, and the Perfume In Progress post Ten Tips For Exploring The World Of Perfume was named one of the top submissions. I’m honored to be included in such good company!

Mark Behnke of Colognoisseur, Jasia Julia Nielson with Michelyn Camen of Cafleurebon, and Dana El Masri with Michelyn Camen of Cafleurebon received first prizes for the blog categories. This awards program is the first in the US that is dedicated to fragrance writing, similar to the Jasmine Awards in the UK and Prix Jasmine in France. There are several awards for fragrance writing that are given as part of the annual US Fragrance Foundation Awards, but this is the first fragrance awards program in the US that is dedicated solely to writing. Congrats to all, and best wishes to the Perfumed Plume program!
