True to our mission of encouraging and supporting creative fragrance writing, the Perfumed Plume’s unique and special event last night at The Society of Illustrators called on an expert panel of fragrance journalists to talk about what inspires them to create the award-winning scent stories they write. With wit, humor and exceptional skill they each displayed, to an enthusiastic audience, their highly developed talent for writing about such an ephemeral subject. Panelists and the audience participated in a fascinating blind-smelling and word association writing session that resulted in many truly evocative, provocative, spontaneous scent stories read out loud.
“What a fun and informative evening” said Miranda Gordon, Vice President, Fine Fragrance Marketing & Evaluation, MANE “I hope the Perfumed Plume does more hands-on events like this. The panelists were just exceptional and showed us all that writing about fragrance is a very special skill.”
