If you have been following my blog for over a year, you will know that last summer I started interviewing Perfume Designer/Makers from the United States and Canada. I personally LOVE perfume, I love my sense of smell and I am intrigued by perfume designers! Over the past year I have also spent mass amounts of money on rare essential oils with my business partner Sheena Nordman to start making amazing smelling concoctions that once in bottles, are called perfumes. My interest in perfume has been around since I was a teenager, so it has been a pleasure to have the opportunity to shine light on the Natural Perfume Industry now that that is the only kind of perfume I will wear.
I found Kathleen Currie from SMOKE Perfume on Instagram when I was looking for inspiration in my Solar Infused Beauty business. Upon finding SMOKE Perfume, I was in love…the packaging…direct connection to my heart…wooden hand made perfume bottles…flowers…products going out in the mail…perfume made around the cycles of the moon…this was magic for sure. I’ve spent the past 6 months following SMOKE Perfume on Instagram, and being continuously inspired and amazed. I caught up with Kathleen over the internet to learn more about her inspiration and practices as a holistic perfume designer.
