What is the Perfume Project?

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.

The winner of the fall contest, determined by random drawing, is ANKICA. Please send me a PM with your current mailing address and your choice of fragrance.

There was only one entrant in the contest to guess the all-time top 5 posts, so by default, the winner of that contest is BELLE. Please send me your mailing address and choice of fragrance.

Belle actually had two correct guesses, although the rank wasn't right. Here are the five posts with the most views:

1. Abdul Samad Al Qurashi Reviews
2. Ambrette Seeds, Okra, and Botanical Musk
3. Topiary Tree Torture
4. The Making of a Summer Fragrance: Dendrobium moniliforme
5. Sweet Alyssum: The Perfume Note

This reminds me that I need to finish up Alyssum, but first, I'll get the packages sent out to the fall contest winners.
