Happy New Year!


Wishing everyone a wonderful 2017! I’m very grateful to be part of the fragrance community and hope 2017 treats us well!



I took the photo above from my deck a few days before Christmas. The oak trees are bare now and look sculptural against the blue sky and puffy clouds.

I’m looking forward to finishing the two new scents that I’ve been working on this past year — the cozy chocolate gourmand and the floral with mimosa, orange blossom, and jasmine.  The gourmand should be ready very soon in the new year.

Many thanks for your support of small artisan businesses, and Happy New Year!

  1. Any idea yet on when the new chocolate gourmand will be ready? Since reading about it, can’t wait to try it!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! Glad it sounds interesting! Yes, I think the formula is about done, and then I need to scale it up. I want to release it as soon as I can, but it always takes a few weeks to scale it. I’m sorry that it has taken longer than I had hoped! The web page should be done before long (the page is ready but I’m still deciding on the theme pictures), and I’ll post that link with more details when the release is near. The notes are Sichuan pepper, bergamot, apricot, plum, mandarin, chocolate, caramel, violet, jasmine, tobacco, cedar, oakwood, labdanum, patchouli, sandalwood, benzoin, heliotrope, amber, and musk.
