Lyn Ayre has been hosting wonderful Perfume Challenges. I was delighted to be able to participate in the Autumn Chypre Challenge and thrilled that my Perfume “De Hoop” was the winner.
You can read all about it on Lyn’s Site Coeur d’Esprit.
It is such fun participating in a Challenge, but challenging at the same time. Will I be able to do it in time? How will I interpret the theme? I used the opportunity to show case some African ingredients, including Omumbiri, Muhuhu, Cape May, as well my enfleurage extracts from Ginger lily and Buddelja salviifolia and many of my other African favourites.
There are so few Challenges open for independent perfumers, so I am particularly grateful to Lyn. Lyn will be hosting more Challenges next year,
Keep a look out for announcements, or let Lyn know that you are interested.
