Hello Fellow Fumies,
Every Saturday we have a Question, an idea purloined from Olfactoria’s Travels. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it is a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them.
Over 100 responses I will draw a Scent Sample Pack (from my collection)
Women Perfumers Selection
- Aftelier Sepia
- Strange Invisible Perfumes Epic Gardenia

Saturday Question: Which Scents That You Have Were Made By Women?
On Thursday 8 March the world celebrated International Womens Day. That sent me running to my collection to see what I had that was made by or with women perfumers. First I’d like to acknowledge Annick Goutal, Parfums de Nicolai, Strange Invisible Perfumes, Aftelier, Olympic Orchids, Vero Profumo, Soivohle, Mona di Orio and the many other brands created, owned and perfumed by women.
We still have so far to go for gender parity in our world.
Above are a selection of a few of the fragrances I have bottles of that were created by or with women perfumers. A fair cross section of blockbusters, boundary pushers, innovators and Indie perfumes there.
My Saturday Question to you is:
