My perfume “pourquoi story”
Like many perfumistas, I’ve always worn and liked perfume, but wasn’t very picky and usually owned only one bottle at a time. In other areas of life, if I liked something very much, eventually I would feel the compulsion to find out exactly how it was made, and this happened with perfume one day—rather suddenly and unexpectedly.
I suppose it all started subconsciously with ego, by way of the thought that I should start being a bit more discerning and maybe look for a perfume that could help me better express myself. Where to begin this exploration?
December 2018, on my first visit to Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, I came across the shop Things Finer in the historic La Fonda Hotel and had my first encounter with niche perfumery. Not satisfied with becoming just a next-level consumer by discovering the what, I also found a new passion to create by learning the how.
