Women in Perfumery & A Story of My First Indie/Niche Perfumes

Recently Allure published an article in their July 2017 Diversity/”American Beauty” Issue, “The American Perfumers Modern Approach to Fragrance” by Liana Schaffner that briefly covers the rebellious spirit of American niche perfumery. I’m always delighted to see my interest introduced to a broader audience; however, there was something so curious about this article. Out of all the brands and perfumers interviewed¹, none were female. There was a total erasure of women in perfumery. Which is so unfortunate because I feel like there would have been no niche or indie perfumery in the US if it weren’t for women!… Continue reading | 19 Comments

What I Learned from a Week of Wearing Drugstore Perfumes

Revlon Charlie ad

 

Last week, I revisited/reviewed five cheap perfumes available in most American drugstores. I didn’t try the “vintage”. I tried what you can go and buy now. I wanted this to be a feature on easy accessibility.  I did this because many of us know these perfumes but most Perfume People ignore these perfumes. And I understand why we do.
