A Way with Words

pia long

I am an avid reader.  In any given summer, I could read twenty books, mostly non-fiction like Malcolm Gladwell, but with a sprinkling of fiction from Stephen King and Paul Coelho.

About six  months ago,  around the time I started building Perfumer Supply House, I discovered Pia Long’s blog VOLATILE FICTION and I must say…she blew me away.  Pia has a way of writing that ranks right up there with the greats.  Her latest post from August 25 entitled:

Why is the fragrance industry so secretive?

is insightful and fair, a lot like a teacher making sure her students understand the topic.  She provides information in a clear and understandable way, and leaves us all with a call to action that is hard to resist.

Pia will be featured in the October episode of my new podcast WONDAROMA so please subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, which should be available on soon.

Paul Kiler - PK Perfumes small

“19 Awards in the first 12 Months”

Paul Kiler appreciates beauty, art and nature both in his photography and in his perfumery.  His desire to achieve “complex, enigmatic and luxurious” scents prompted him to begin a journey into the world of perfumery, one which would take him years to develop.

Paul now makes his fragrances available to everyone, and only uses the finest materials sourced all over the world.  These creations are extraordinary, one-of-a-kind MASTERPIECES, but don’t take my word for it.

In the first ten months of business, PK Perfumes has now won 19 awards,  10 of which were from a National Judges Panel.  Five Awards came from the  San Francisco from the March 2013 Artisan Fragrance Salon event, and received four awards at the September 2012 Los Angeles Artisan Fragrance Salon event.  The Gold Award for “Best Aroma”, a Silver Award for “Best in Salon”, and two Bronze awards for “Most Unique”, and “Most Seductive Scent”.

UPDATE: PAUL is featured on our first episode of WONDAROMA, a new flavor & fragrance podcast.
