What’s New

Update 9/22/17

I’m working on two new scents (a floral and a gourmand). More info on those to come. The webpage for the new floral is almost done, and I’ll post a link when I am close to release. I want to release the floral before the end of the year.

I’m currently on a Fall break with the shopping cart temporarily closed. We’ve been open without a break since November 2016, and I need to dedicate time to this next release. You’ll notice that there are no “Add To Cart” buttons on the purchasing pages, but those buttons will return after the break, likely end of Oct.

Please send me an email if you need something for a gift, or if you have a gift certificate that you want to use, or if you are an international customer and want to time a package to arrive while you or your friends are visiting the USA. I will take care of those orders – I can send you a PayPal invoice if you tell me what you’d like. Meantime, I will update here, and I will post updates on my blog. I’ll still be here, so you can always reach me at ☺

Subscribe to Our Blog Updates:

You can stop by our blog if you're interested in more information about the perfume-making process or want to follow the progress on the new scents. The blog and the newsletter are different; the newsletter goes out just a few times a year to announce new scents and important product alerts, while the blog is usually updated at least weekly and contains a mix of content (updates on my work on new scents, information about perfumery ingredients, interviews with people in the fragrance world, links to articles of interest elsewhere on the net etc.). If you'd like, you can sign up to receive email alerts from Feedburner when we add a new post to our blog (you'll get maximum one email per day, just on days new posts are added so you don't have to remember to check back):
