March is Women's History month and March 8th is International Women’s Day.
Quarry has proposed “diversity” month on the female fragrance forum and I’m interested in trying to wear only scents from Houses headed by women – or developed by female “noses”.
So that meant doing some research. With the directory down – I had to turn to Perfume Intelligence The Encyclopaedia of Perfume looking at their list of perfumers (noses). I was surprised how many women I found.
