The year is almost complete and I have missed being here sharing with you the roller coaster ride that is life, perfumery, business, and creative drive these days. I still long to have more time to be in my studio painting, drawing and designing but I 2013 wasn’t without it’s creative moments and discoveries. There were some strides forward in terms of taking on a couple more private students with plans to start doing monthly workshops (and maybe even a couple more students) in 2014. The biggest thing that we have ramped up to start jumping back into for 2014 is work on the ArtScent Museum. Sadly, very little work managed to get done on this fabulous project in 2013 but we’ve managed to set things up to be able to dive right in and continue cataloging and mounting some new shows starting in Spring of 2014.
I feel very grateful and fortunate to share that some really superlative designs came out of the Essense Studio this year and DSH has been recognized on a few of the blogs we most cherish as having created some of the best fragrances of the year. Here’s what CaFleureBon, Perfume Shrine and The GoodSmellas had to say about Iridum and / or Passport a` Paris. Thank you Mark and Michelyn at CFB, Elena at PS and Carlos at TGS for this honor! It’s very exciting indeed and it spurs me on to attempt even greater creative endeavors!
I am hoping to spend much more time here and sharing all that’s going on in my creative world in 2014. Let’s all hope for greater freedom, peace, health and love for us all in the New Year~
With Love~~~ xoxo
