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.

CLEANING UP AND REGROUPING
I just finished cleaning up all of the recent spam comments that seem to collect on the blog like rotting hurricane debris when I don't post regularly. Over the past quarter I've been too overwhelmed to want to look at the blog, so have just let it slide into oblivion.
I won't make any promises, but hope I can start back to posting after we get back from our short winter vacation in Victoria, BC on the 22nd of December. No promises, no resolutions, we'll just see how it goes.
