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.

My good intention is to resuscitate this blog, which I have to do from time to time after its recurring dormant phases. 

First things first. I’ll announce the winner of the last drawing, which was many weeks ago, then go on to explain and complain in another post about a few of the factors that make me feel like not writing blog posts. 

The drawing has been done, and the winner is:   TRINITI. 

Please e-mail me at olympicorchids at gmail dot com or leave a PM on the Olympic Orchids Facebook page (if you still use Facebook after all the recent scandals). 

If you do not respond before the next drawing is announced (at least a week from now), your winnings will go into the jackpot for the next drawing.
