Here’s a break in my pandemic-themed posting for late March!
The Perfumed Plume just announced the finalists in their 2020 Awards for Fragrance Journalism and I’m happy to be represented in two categories…
Upcoming event: I’ll be participating in a panel discussion and workshop on fragrance writing, organized by The Perfumed Plume. It will take place in New York on November 7, 2018.
You can view the official invitation and a link to purchase tickets on the Perfumed Plume website. Many thanks to Lyn and Mary Ellen for inviting me to join this event!
Last fall, I was all but housebound with a broken ankle for many weeks. I was able to do a bit of office work remotely every morning, but other than that, I was feeling tired and uncomfortable and I just wasn’t up for anything that took extended concentration, including most TV and most reading. One notable exception: I spent some time working on an article idea that I’d had over the summer and I pitched it to Atlas Obscura. They liked my proposal, and I spent the rest of November and early December—between physical therapy appointments—doing the research and writing for my article titled “Ann Haviland, Forgotten Mastermind of the Signature Scent.”
