Perfumery is a traditional old-world craft using art and science, inspiration and magic. With over 31 years of experience in this trade, as well as a Master's degree in Behavioral Science, I consider myself both an alchemist of scents and a translator of memory and emotion. I love my vocation as a perfumer because it allows me to work with people in a connected interpersonal way, while guiding them on a mini-tour of creative self-discovery, via the sensory aspect of scent and smell.
Because of the intense connection between the sense of smell and memory, making perfume can be intensely emotional and uniquely personal. I love hearing the memories and stories that my customers are willing to share, as well as creating perfumes and therefore new memories for them.
I had a personal fragrance created by Essense almost 29 years ago, and I still use it! Not only has it become my signature scent and an element of my identity, but the oils last so long that its makes an economical choice for fragrance. Tamsan is the sweetest and so enthusiastic about what she does, she's made re-ordering my oils easy and effortless. She will help create a blend uniquely for you, or you can choose from Essense's delicious custom blends. Perfection!
