via Portia’s Best Of 2018
I don’t feel qualified to list the “best of 2018”, as I haven’t tried that many of the new launches, so I plan to share the lists of bloggers I follow and enjoy! And then maybe I will post a very idiosyncratic list of the scents I’ve enjoyed this year, without any claim to being expert or comprehensive.
So here is Portia’s “Best of 2018” from the blog Australian Perfume Junkies — if you haven’t read the blog before, check it out! It’s a very friendly fragrance community. Happy New Year!

These bottles have […]
via Some Final Bottles Available — Perfume in Progress
If you always wanted some fragrances from Sonoma Scent Studio, this is your last chance! Award-winning perfumer Laurie Erickson is retiring from the perfume business and may have a buyer for Sonoma Scent Studio. She has a small number of bottles of her fragrance creations still available for purchase. I’m sad to see such a gifted artisan perfumer leave the scene but I am confident Laurie will flourish in her next phase.
