Code of Ethics

The Plum Girl Blog pledges to the Perfumery Code Of Ethics, as developed by Christophe Laudamiel. 

The Perfumery Code of Ethics is currently based on an honor system. There is no commitment besides what is duly expressed in the Code. Perfumers, formula owners, and critics/reviewers are committing personally, and brands may also commit as such.

Perfumery Code of Ethics logo 2024

The Green Celadon Seal is a symbol of good approval, creative fragrances, and solid foundations. Scale (balance) is a symbol of perfumery and justice, and the bell stands for freedom – and whistleblowing.

If you would like to commit, feel free to send an application letter


Please be mindful that I’m most interested in niche/artisan/indie perfumes and products.

  • Sending samples or full bottles does not guarantee a review. No review is paid for, and it shall never be.
  • All reviews shall be based upon my personal opinion and published when I find it fit.
  • Samples/perfume received shall not be resold!
  • Any link appearing in the text to an outside site is for informational purposes only, it’s not paid for.
  • Perfume reviews are informative, not a call to action. Test it before you buy it.
