About

The Plum Girl

My aim is to explore the olfactory world of skillfully made perfumes & scented products and give you my sincere insight.

Reviews are written after thorough research. I invest time in wearing and carefully analyzing fragrances I choose to write about.

I am passionate about perfumes, life quality improvement based on expanding of the olfactory palate and developing a sense of smell for beautiful.

This is a life-long learning process and I am enjoying every step of it!

The concept I support is art and creativity of perfumery, innovation, and finest ingredients. Authenticity.

Why “The Plum Girl”?

The Plum Girl is a character from the book “Perfume“, written by Patrick Suskind. She is the initial girl that started Grenouille’s desire to create “the perfume of the perfumes”. She started his obsession, she made him realize what his life purpose is and she is the one he thinks of in his last moments.

I write my own texts and respect copyright laws. Please show respect for all the effort I put into “The Plum Girl” blog.

My name is Elena

I love perfumes, people, Summer, deserts, seas and red wine. Deserts, as I see them, are the spots which ultimately connect me with Nature. Traveled to many, some yet to meet, some always to return to. Sea is where I anchor.
Faculty of Economics is my alma mater, Marketing in my veins. My career grew up in the corporate world and when the time was right for me, I became an entrepreneur.
You might know me as a business and life coach, soft skills trainer or HR specialist. I am also an olfactory geek, keen and always in the process of learning.
I feel scents as silent poetry, invisible soul-deep impressions.

I am at your service as niche perfumes writer, marketing specialist, brand manager, olfactory advisor, perfume storyteller, and consultant. A very curious nose with a holistic approach.

My favorite quote:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
