Growing flowers and vegetables and fruits became my passion after the death of my husband in 2013. Reinventing myself through creating oils, perfumes and mists using my flowers and plants has been a way of dealing with the grief of losing my husband.
I love to help people who are sensitive to strong perfumes or who are looking for milder and more natural and organic fragrances.
I gain purpose and meaning from creating fragrances from my own garden.
I have been creating my own fragrances since September 2016. This grew out of my search to find new uses for the flowers and plants that I am growing in my garden. I needed to explore new practices and find a new creative outlet for me (new to me, but an ancient industry going back thousands of years).
I am happy to be sharing my love of plants and fragrances with all my clients.
I am always creating new fragrances by experimenting with different scents. You can read about the manufacturing process for perfumes here.
In the year 2022, I came across The Perfume Foundation (IPF) - International and became interested in their Vision and Mission. I found it very exciting to be able to be part of The Perfume Foundation (IPF) - International which is working on regulating Natural Perfumery and providing great Education to current and future perfumers. The career paths for a perfumer have expanded in a very interesting way and there is so much to learn and apply. It is exciting!!
