First Sniff of The Basenotes fragrances

by Grant Osborne, 15th March, 2010

Today I had a meeting with Angela Stavrevska, who is Marketing & Trends Manager at CPL Aromas. During the meeting we worked out the next stages in The Basenotes Fragrance Project, and I got the chance to have the first sniff of the three initial fragrances that will be sent out to those members who have signed up to the sampling programme. (It's not too late to join if you want to help shape these fragrances).

I'm very excited by what the perfumers have done with the briefs, and can't wait for everyone to be able to try them. We'll be chatting again with the perfumers to find out what they think of the project so far.

For the next stage of the project we will be sending these three first fragrances to those of you signed up to the sample programme so that we can get your feedback. Your feedback will go to the perfumers who will then create the next round of fragrances based on your feedback.

      It is awesome to see Dimitri, Ruggles and Quarry's Her Purse - three great Basenoters - on the bottles of the perfumes ! :)

      Hate to be repetitive, but any news?

    • Grant (article author) | 9th December 2010 10:56

      I'm currently collating feedback for the CPL perfumers for round 2

    • Firemave | 11th December 2010 07:38

      Is their anyway we can still sign up for the Sampling program? Or has that ship long sailed?
