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.

A CONTEST WHILE I'M OUT OF TOWN
I don't plan to post anything until I'm back from my San Francisco trip on the 11th, and it may be a few days before I get around to it even then, with catch-up to do after leaving the orchids in the care of a house-sitter.
To provide a little fun and games to brighten up your summer, I'd like to set up a contest. It goes like this:
In the two years that this blog has been in existence, what are the 5 posts that have received the most page views? Frankly, I was surprised when I checked. The person who comes closest to guessing will get a BIG gift package full of fragrant surprises. The second place person will get a medium box of fragrant surprises, and third place will get a little box of the same. If no one guesses any of them, I'll start giving clues to aid in the treasure hunt, and it will be over when it's over, i.e., when there are three people who correctly guess at least one to three of the most "popular" posts.
