I'm am repeatedly amazed by the talent that exists within the Natural Botanical Perfume community. And it almost seems as if some of the smallest, quietest voices in the community are the ones who carry the biggest, most spiked with wonders scent strips. So my New Year's request/wish or what-have-you is this ~ no matter what your vocation, whether you (that's YOU the reader of this obscure blog) are an artisan Natural Botanical Perfumer, or you're simply a lover of scent, or someone who got lost and fell down a rabbit hole and ended up here a la YOU ARE HERE status, and X marks the spot, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, search out, find and sample the wares of every Natural Botanical Perfumer who appeals to you, even in the tinest way. Because you never know what you'll find or learn or covet until you do.
Happy New Year.
