Tabac Review on Parfumieren, and Update

You can find a fun and fascinating review of Tabac Aurea on Parfumieren today. I’m honored that Olenska thinks Tabac Aurea would please the goddess Oshun! ๐Ÿ™‚ I always learn something interesting about literature, history, and other cultures when visiting her blog. Thanks, Olenska!

Today a summary of the July 8th Fragrance Salon appeared in the Style section of the San Francisco Chronicle. My table (mainly my sign) was one of the three photos accompanying the text. That was fun to see!

I spent all day Saturday cleaning up my work room, which had gotten out of hand. I still need to do a bit more organizing, but it’s much improved. Nothing like a clean work space. I’ve needed to do that for months.

I’m working on the musky unisex sandalwood rose but should get back to finishing the Vintage Rose reformulation. I’m trying to catch some of the Olympics too. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Wow! I love New Caledonia absolute (so far my favorite along side mysore) and I do like ambrette seed as a natural alternative to musk. Can’t wait to sample this one ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks! I didn’t use flash (don’t know how and have heard it loads slow), so I used some javascript for the slideshow. I thought it’d be fun to work the SSS poster into the home page. I think that’s what you mean? Glad you like it!
