At the Bench

Approaching the bench today, I am ready to pull down the bottles I’ve chosen and begin to dip test strips for a first evaluation.

This new perfume features some recently acquired naturals – French Hydrocarbonresine (a cistus fraction), organic Vanilla and Ylang VOP from Madagascar - gorgeous materials to exalt and to set off like the precious jewels they are.

So begins the bench phase of the third and final perfume of my new trilogy. (One is masculine, one is unisex, and this last one is decidedly feminine. They are all connected thematically, the story will soon be released!)

Concept, perfume family, and notes, the constructs that I pondered for days, were followed by a mental review of raw materials and a penciled outline.  Today is a most lucky day - my imagined fragrance is readily translating into physical reality.

P.S. The drawing for a bespoke natural perfume of intention remains open until January 31. You still have a great chance of winning! 
Just send your full name and email address to .
No obligation to purchase. Winner will be announced on this blog.
