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.

ANOTHER WEBSITE-RELATED QUESTION
While we're on the topic of website design, I'd like to pose a question to all of you about the design of this website. When I first started the blog, I chose the white text on black background just because I like the way it looks, but recently I've read comments by several people (not here) saying that they find it hard to read white text on a dark background.
So, dear readers, would you prefer to have black text on a white background? If a majority prefer black on white, I'll switch over at some point.
So please vote: White on black or black on white?
If you vote, you'll be entered into the website design random drawing for a 5 ml spray bottle of an Olympic Orchids perfume. The drawing will take place on Thursday, August 16.
