    Mike, it is an honour and a privilege that you will dedicate your time and efforts to making this concept work. I am BESIDE MYSELF right now. :cheesy:

    Congrats to Ruggles and Quarry too - I am in the most remarkable of company. Many thanks also to those who commented on my brief... I am seriously gobsmacked! :laugh:

    How exciting. Three wonderful briefs, three talented perfumers and an incredibly revved up and supportive community. This is too much fun.

    Dear Beverley, I’m excited beyond reason. Hope you have lots of fun virtually sticking your head in purses.

    Grant, thank you for giving us — oh, heck — ME(!) a milestone opportunity to be part of the creative process. Seriously, a high point in my existence.

    Wow, holding back the tears of joy! I feel quite honored having my brief turned into a reality by David Ruskin. I am also honored to be in the esteemed company of Quarry and Dimitri.
    I can't wait for the sniffing to begin.
    Thank you Grant for giving us this incredible opportunity.
    YAY!!!!!!!

    Congratulations to the winning briefs and their authors! All remarkable!
    I was wondering if Basenotes considers to establish a kind of institution with this fragrance project? A fragrance project every 2 to 5 years? What do you think? Woudln't that be creative fun?

    You've been working with natural botanicals like myself, you know how difficult a note absinthe, or wormwood, is to work with, so in the hands of an expert nose (there's an interesting mental picture) I think we're going to have something seriously interesting on our hands. :)

    Way to go, guys. Your briefs certainly deserve smelling. Let me rephrase that. ;)

    WOW! How FANTASTIC! Congratulations to all the winners - Dimitri, Ruggles and Quarry. But I need to say a special SO FABULOUS to Dimitri - I know how very much this would mean to you. So excellent! :kiss:

    Huge congratulations and very best wishes to the winners. This is such a great move by Basenotes and a wonderful privilege for those who submitted the winning briefs.

    Mosses, leathers, musky woods, revisiting and updating old fragrance styles... all totally up my straße! I think the winners were very well chosen. Is there still time to sign up to the Sampling Programme?!

    Naturally, I'm gutted that my brief wasn't selected - and almost more disappointed for some of the other Basenoters that really entered into to the spirit of the project with such enthusiasm and creativity - but didn't make it. My best wishes to them too.

    Congratulations to the winners, Dimitri, Ruggles, and Quarry! I'm so very excited for you.

    Congratulations to everyone that entered. I was blown away by the talent and the wonderful briefs. There were some very orginal ideas presented and I'm sure the decision was a tough one.

    Congratulations to all of us at Basenotes! We are going to be exposed to some awesome new frags soon!

    Fantastic!

    Congratulations!

    I really have enjoyed following this entire process. But, my goodness, how difficult to choose just three. (In my mind, I had conjured each and every one into fabulous scents.) I very much appreciate everyone who spent the time & effort to submit their briefs.

    Can't wait to try these, they sound absolutely wonderful.
