A Forgotten Perfumer: Ann Haviland on Atlas Obscura


I’m a longtime fan of Atlas Obscura, so I was thrilled when its editors were interested in my idea for an article about the perfumer Ann Haviland. I came across Haviland’s name by chance, and the more I read about her work, the more fascinated I was by her innovative approach to perfumery in the 1910s and 1920s. She was a woman ahead of her time.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading the article, which you can find here. Please feel free to share with any friends who might also be interested!

Note: This beautiful illustration was created for the article by artist Whooli Chen. I think it’s perfect for this story. Thank you, Whooli!
