I feel like I should be writing a 2017 summary, seems a whole year has flown by since my last post. It’s true that life goes by much faster the older one gets, and amazingly, in a few days, it will be 10 years since I graduated from perfumery school. The whole reason I came to Grasse, and began this blog, has reached a 10 year anniversary. It’s impressive how fast it has gone by, but also how full the time has been. So many experiences, both good and difficult, but overall consistent to the chosen path.
For today, just a quick update with quite big news. All my friends and connections on social media will already know, but a few weeks ago, 1000 Flowers (aka me), opened our first ‘bricks and mortar’ shop on the main square in Grasse. It’s really an atelier/boutique, and I will continue to work at fragrance creation, production, bottling, processing orders, etc on site. But now there is an actual place where you can visit me, and see behind the scenes of the project. So, on that note, I must get to work! See you all very soon!

“I had always wanted a shop and for it to be here in the Burlington Arcade,” he says. “Perfume is an intimate thing and this is the antithesis of a perfume hall in a department store. Here we can spend time getting to know the clients and there’s a room upstairs where we can serve tea or champagne.”
Thank you for this quote… I love it! But where is it from?
