Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms! My Mom is spending the day with her grandchildren. I’ve said before how my Mom didn’t wear fragrance when I was growing up, though my grandmother did. My Mom still influenced my appreciation of scents though — she encouraged us to enjoy the scent of flowers in her garden, bread baking, Christmas trees that we’d cut fresh at the tree farm, the wonderful air camping in the mountains, the woodsy smells when taking a walk in the redwoods in the park near our home, and so many other natural scents that were part of day to day experience. Scent was always an important part of my life even before I became interested in perfume, and I think that’s probably true for many people.
I made a tiny batch of the summer scent in a more concentrated form and am testing today to see if I need to tweak the formula before scaling up to make the first testers. I already have a name in mind but will wait a bit longer to post it.
Hope you’re having a great Mother’s Day weekend!
