This blog is a constantly evolving forum for thoughts on perfume, perfume-making, plants (especially orchids and flora of the Pacific Northwest) and life in general. It started out chronicling the adventures of Olympic Orchids Perfumes, established in July 2010, and has expanded in other directions. A big part of the blog is thinking about the ongoing process of learning and experimentation that leads to new perfumes, the exploration of perfumery materials, the theory and practice of perfume making, the challenges of marketing perfumes and other fragrance products, and random observations on philosophy and society. Spam comments will be marked as such and deleted; any comments that go beyond the boundaries of civil discourse will also be deleted. I am grateful to all of you, the readers, who contribute to the blog by commenting and making this a truly interactive perfume project.

BLOGGER IS SCREWING UP!
I've never had problems posting before, but today Blogger is screwing up at every stage. There's always an "error in saving" or "error in publishing". I wondered at first if it was because of my photos. Are they too large? If so, please tell me, Blogger, and I'll make them smaller. Why did my posts fail to save and fail to publish at every turn? What's wrong with a little feedback?
After finally managing to construct and publish the above two posts, I concluded that it wasn't the photos, it's just the general bugginess inherent in Blogger, possibly combined with flakiness due to the solar flare that failed to produce any northern lights last night, despite the prediction that it might.
I'll give Blogger the benefit of the doubt this time and assume that the problems are due to solar flare weirdness. The next time I may not be so understanding. Three strikes, and Blogger is likely to be out.
