    Default UPDATE for SF Sniff and Artisan Fragrance Salon

    I have an update for July 7thís SF Sniff. We will be starting at about noon.

    Meetup place for NOON on Saturday July 7th is Alexander Book Company on 2nd between Mission and Market. Unusual venue for perfume, you say? Not so! We will be kicking off with Alyssa Harad, author of the wonderful book "Coming to my Senses". She will have some interesting things to smell, a giveaway or two, and read a little bit from her book. She is a charming, lovely woman and fabulous writer.

    If you can, get there between 11:45 and noon so I can get you checked in, give you a name tag, map, itinerary, etc. I will also have a SWAG BAG!!! Some perfumers who cannot attend the salon, and a few who are, have sent me samples to hand out.

    After Alexander Books we will proceed to Union Square, which is a couple of blocks or one BART/Metro stop away. The best stop to get out on for the bookstore is Montgomery, and for Union Square is Powell.

    If you plan to come later please message me and I will give you my cell number to contact me.

    If you havenít gotten your tickets for the Artisan Fragrance Salon, remember that there will not be tickets sold at the door! http://www.artisanfragrancesalon.com/

    Hope to see you there!

    I forgot to mention that we will close the day with a casual dinner and swapfest, so bring your unwanted samples, decants, bottles, etc. to throw on the table.

    I'm flagrantly (fragrantly??) bumping this thread because this is coming up this weekend!

    If you've ever made it to one of our San Francisco Basenotes Meet-Ups, Saturday's SF Sniff is basically the same thing, but including a book discussion (with sniffing, of course), an afternoon shopping, and our now-legendary sample trade dinner.

    If anyone is interested, just show up. It's free. Or if you're going to be late or only want to meet for late afternoon or dinner, PM me and I'll give you my number so you can call and find out where we are so you can catch up with us.

    Then, in even bigger news, Sunday is the SF Artisan Fragrance Salon, organized by, among others, Yosh Han. She's put together an epic collection of artisan perfumers, some big and some very independent, some of whom are making one-of-a-kind specials for this event.

    For more info: http://www.artisanfragrancesalon.com/ and http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mary-o...b_1623030.html


    Attending perfumers:

    Yosh
    Sonoma Scent Studio
    Sarah Horowitz
    Ineke
    Parfums Delrae
    Smell Bent
    Artemisia Natural Perfume
    EnVoyage Perfumes
    Ayala Moriel
    Olympic Orchids Artisan Perfumes
    Velvet & Sweet Pea's Purrfumery
    Roxana Illuminated Perfume
    40notes Perfume
    Persephenie
    Cognoscenti
    Divine Life Perfume
    Leila Castle Botanical Fragrance
    Rebel & Mercury Pure Botanical Perfumes
    Smells & Bells Organics
    L'Aromatica Perfume

    Oh, and there are wineries participating, who will be pairing wines with perfumes!

    The Saturday sniff is free, the Sunday Salon is $25.

    This has been getting a lot of love on the blogs, but very little talk here on BN, but I'm sure we're all hoping the bay area Basenoters will be attending!

    HI rogalal & Tama
    I have a ticket for Sunday but- I have some issues on the homefront that came up and probably won't shlep all the way up there this time- as much fun as the whole weekend sounds.
    If I don't make it, I feel good I bought a ticket at least, to support the Salon on Sunday.
