A reporter for the SF Chronicle visited me for an interview a few months ago, and she’s written a lovely article about Sonoma Scent Studio that is in this weekend’s Home and Garden section. The freelance reporter, Sophia Markoulakis, is a great writer and a real people person; she did a wonderful job tying together the personal and perfume sides of the story with the home/garden aspects. A photographer visited two weeks ago to take pictures for the article. You can see that it looks like fall here now with the trees dropping their leaves and the garden at season’s end (Sophia came earlier when it was much warmer, hence my quote about loving the late summer sun).
I want to mention something about myself that is in the article but that I’ve not brought up on the blog before. Years ago I had a spinal injury in a riding accident, and although I was not paralyzed, I currently use a wheelchair. My Dad is a retired architect and designed my cottage to be wheelchair friendly when we built it in 2005; it works great for me and is a perfect spot for me to live.
The article ends with a quote about how much I enjoy the scent memories that many customers share with me via email after they receive their orders. I really do treasure the emails I receive and love the chance to connect with people all over the world from my little corner here in Sonoma!
I’m still working on the new scents. I added pages for the first two all-natural blends so that people can see what is coming, but it will be a bit longer before they are released.
