Summer of Patchouli Love 2011 (Perfume Pharmer)
This summer, I will be particpating in Perfume Pharmer's (Monica Skye Miller) Summer of Patchouli Love project as a Patch Test Bunny. This is the kind of project a perfume writer dreams about. Fifteen perfumers will be submitting 100% natural patchouli perfumes to Monica, she will repackage them, label them by numbers only and will send them to her Patch Test Bunnies. At that point, we will pick our three favorites, and write about them on our blogs, or in print, whatever media we utilize. The Celebrity Patch Test Bunnies include Jodie Foster (!) and Mary J. Blige (!).
I'm awfully excited that the perfumers include Liz Zorn and Dawn Spencer Hurwitz, and I'm very eager to see if I can pick out their patchouli perfumes since I know their work so well. If I can't guess correctly on Liz' perfume at least, I'll consider myself defeated!
Monica will start sending out the perfumes to the Patch Test Bunnies in mid-June, so I won't have much longer to wait. What's also great is that all of the perfumes will be available for sale by each perfumer in August, so if any lemmings are created from this project, they will have a chance to be fully realized and satiated.
Thank you, Monica, for giving me the honor of participating in this seriously fun project!
