Sydney Botanic Gardens: Sydney Perfume Lovers Perfume Walk 2013

Hi there APJ Crew,

There is something very internal about being a perfumista, a collector of fragrance and bottles, stalking the internet and spritzing selfishly and often for you alone. The only way to make perfume more fun is to get involved with the rest of the perfumistas in your area, some deep dark perfumistas and some still skirting the edges of the woremhole. It’s amazing how much fun, laughter and interest there is in sharing the experiences of discovery and knowledge.

Catherine will also explain the fragrance wheel and the role of synthetic scents. This is a perfect way to simply and easily expand your fragrant vocabulary and knowledge. It will give you a clearer picture of fragrance styles you may like and also open up new doors into personal scenting you may never have traveled through.

    *sob* oh, I wish I could take part of this. Sadly, it’d take me a visa and more. For me, perfume’s one of those hobbies I don’t like to do alone.

  2. Azar says:

    Hi Portia and SPLs,
    What a wonderful outing! What a great idea! I think it would be so much fun to do something like that as a group here in WA state, USA (or OR or BC).

    This would be so much fun to attend! And I would love to visit Sidney. Unfortunately, that’s way out of my budget so please go and enjoy it for all of us that can’t. Have a great time!

  4. Undina says:

    I’m envious: those are two of my loves – perfumes and botanic gardens! I hope you’ll have a blast.

    ARG. I hate that I live so far away!! This sounds like a fabulous event!!! I always visit the Botanical Gardens wherever I go. The fragrance wheel looks like such a cool concept!!!

      Hey there Tora,
      I like the fragrance wheel idea very much though I rarely use it because it’s not been explained to me properly. I think I will learn a lot at this meet up.
