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.

This blogger-perfumer
Started a rumor
That there would be gifts to win
She fumbled about
And two names came out
She said, “let the shipping begin!”

The winners are: Colin I and Carla M

There were 24 entries, an all-time high for one of these drawings, so I decided to choose a runner-up who will receive one 5-ml spray, their choice of the three included in the gift box.

The runner-up is Jessie V

Please contact me with your shipping information. If you are in the US, you will receive the big box. If you are international, you will receive the small box with 3 x 5-ml sprays. If you are the runner-up, please contact me with your shipping info and choice of fragrance. If you click on the Doc Elly link at the right, you will find my e-mail address.
