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.

WINNER OF LUNA ROSSA EXTREME, AN ADDED GIVEAWAY, AND GIVEAWAY PARAMETERS
The drawing, such as it was, has taken place and the winner has emerged.
The winner is JAMES WEAVER. To claim your prize, please provide your mailing address by sending an e-mail to olympicorchids at gmail dot com or leave a PM on Facebook.
Just to clarify the parameters of our giveaway system, any drawing with less than two entrants will be extended so that that prize is offered along with the next one. Any unclaimed prizes will be accumulated so that each giveaway's winner will receive whatever the total accumulation is. It works sort of like the real lottery where the pot keeps getting bigger if no one claims it.
Don't forget there's a great drawing for two different Harajuku Lovers perfumes this week, including a 100 ml bottle of Wicked Baby! All you have to do is leave a comment.
Because the cost of international shipping has now become truly outrageous, some drawings will be US only. Any shipping limitations will be made explicit in each post.
