Le Jardin Retrouve has published many interviews with perfumers, perfume lovers, writers, and bloggers in a series named Fragrance Lovers. I’m proud that The Plum Girl blog was featured on their site and grateful to Clara Feder and the whole Le Jardin Retrouve team for the first live Salon I took part in, and the transcript published in LJR Fragrance Lovers posts.
Impermanence by Christèle Jacquemin, a perfumer, photographer, and traveler is an Art&Olfaction Awards 2020 (Artisan Category) Finalist. This is a new niche perfume brand that launched in 2019 with three fragrances in brand’s portfolio: Underworld, Meandering Soul, and Impermanence – reviewed here, plus a short interview with Christèle!
I talked with Victor about the past, present, future of his brand, new releases, and asked him if he were to wake up as an animal – what would he be.
Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief of CaFleureBon asked me to write about my fragrant awakening, and I accepted the challenge.
It’s funny how things in life sometimes take unexpected turns. Last summer, while I was staying in Grasse and frenetically driving around Cote d’Azur, I got a DM on Instagram. “Are you in Cannes now?” – “Not today, I was there yesterday…” I replied to Anastasia from Suleko Perfumes.
It turned out that Anastasia was there, at the Croisette, and she wanted to meet in person. Unfortunately, every second of my stay was planned in advance and we didn’t manage to meet in France.
„According to the legend, Venus lost her necklace during a sea bath and the pearls scattered in the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It created a beautiful string of islands with Elba as the most beautiful of its jewels.” – Acqua dell’Elba
