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.

Apparently Blogger is just having a bad day. As soon as I started this post I got the warning that there was an error in saving/publishing, so it's not the photos. I have to work around the general flakiness that's going on, hit "save" periodically, and work with the saved drafts. Sort of makes me want to switch to Wordpress.

Anyway, here goes with some more photos.

This one is of Sarah Horowitz (left) and Miriam Vareldzis (40 Notes Perfumes). Again, this was taken at the Saturday breakfast, where things were more leisurely.

Here are Nikki Sherritt of Rebel and Mercury (left) and Loreto Remsing of L'Aromatica, again at the breakfast.

And here are Danielle Sergent (left), Christi Meshell of House of Matriarch (center) and Laurie Stern of Velvet and Sweet Pea. Interestingly, it was in San Francisco that I learned that Nikki Sherritt and Christi Meshell are both in the Seattle area, and that Christi is practically my neighbor. I'm sure we will be getting together soon.

And to finish, here I am with Shelley Waddington at her booth, where she had an orchid on the table and some colorful abstract art in the background.
