I am a wine lover, unabashedly passionate about wine. That I’m also a perfumer lover should come as no surprise, because I find them so similar in the way that perfumes have a top, middle and base note, and how wine has a bouquet, mid palate and finish, with both perfume and wine changing in similar ways over time.
So I was excited to learn that on July 8, 2012 a scentsational event will be taking place in San Francisco. The first annual Artisan Fragrance Salon celebrates independent perfume brands from across the country and Canada.
“The growth of the artisan chocolate market has really taken off in the last few years,” says A.K. Crump. He’s been producing events across the country called Chocolate Salons since 2007. “I think that we are poised to start seeing a similar growth in artisan fragrances.”
