    Default Perfume Game: Summer's night near the coastline / beach

    Sign up here by May 23.

    Shipping deadline is July 15 2020.

    Here are the rules:

    I purposely left the theme very open for interpretation.

    Explanations and Rules:

    1. Gender is not mentioned, so submissions can be made as you feel inspired to direct your fragrance.
    2. Location is up to you. Freshwater or oceanic.
    3. Application is up to you: fine fragrance or atmospheric scenting.
    4. Emotional content is your choice, experience and flora at the location is up to you.

    This is a story you need to tell in a scent. The storyline is up to you to choose.

    The theme is a fragrance for / about a Summer's night near the coastline / beach.

    Each Entry will need an Artist's statement about their submission.
    Statement can be brief, or as long as one page.
    Fragrance should be named. Since this is story telling, the name tells a part of the story, and is what would first attract a buyer. (other than packaging)
    Fragrances will certainly be judged on strip, possibly also skin if appropriate.

    This following is NOT meant to limit your choices...
    If a scent has a load of jasmine materials other than Hedione, I may have to decline judging that perfume, as strong Jasmine/Hyacinth scents tend to give me headaches.
    (I can't have any of these live flowers near me where I live or work...)
    I *can* judge the perfumes, for 5 minutes at a time, then they must go outside, until the next judging point in time. (In other words, I just can't let the odor reach a blood saturation level that produces a headache...) - - - - Just informing you of my own limitations ahead of time, and these I cannot wear on skin.

    And in complete transparency, this theme is in fact a project I've been working on myself for more than the past year, so, Please do not feel that if/when I release a perfume like this, that I have stolen from your submission. Born in Los Angeles, I've lived near the ocean here all of my life, until we bought our first home and moved inland a few years ago, so these scent memories have been ingrained for 50+ years. For me, summer nights in Corona del Mar, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Laguna Beach, as a student/college/adult have many wonderful memories. I could always smell the ocean where we lived, from the age of 9 - 45; and my Aunt and Uncle lived in Hawaii, which we visited many times as a boy.

    Please do not let any of these mentions influence your decision making, this is just background for myself, You should tell YOUR OWN story...


    Jolieo is free to pick other judges at her discretion.

    I will also participate. I'll try to make some typical Polish lake smell. Crowds of primitive people smoking cigarettes, drinking beer and grilling sausages and throwing away a lot of rubbish, destroying beautiful nature, and the smell of "after rain" come to mind. We'll see what comes out of it.

    I've been to Gdansk in Poland by the sea. Is that the same thing? Sorry I’m screw-ing up the sign in. I’ll shut up.

    Interesting Paul...it will take 2 distinct capabilities: fragrance and "writing/marketing" (for presentation/story)....I apologize for my weak reader in english : in the end there will be your opinion?

    Yes, Mine, and maybe some other people's opinions, if Jolieo can get more judges...

    Though I'm not prepared to participate (I only have about 25 raw materials so far...and none of which would fit into this theme), I can't wait to see the results of this!

    With only a small amount of experience I suspect I'm gonna fall flat on my face here, but what the hell! A failure just helps guide the way to the next success. I'm in.

    Yes putting the country puts the flag. Setting location puts the city etc under your name.
    We also have another judge from the main site. Welcome IsoESuperman !

    I'm considering signing up as well. The thing is, I'm new to perfumery, and I'd be surprised if I can even create something to fit the theme. It would be a great challenge, though.

    So judges, would you consider it a waste of your time? It's not like I need to do this in order to learn. I have plenty to learn on my own, so perhaps it would be better to wait until I have some experience.

    Wow, you've captured Lake Balaton in Hungary perfectly. Now I've got to come up with something else...

    I'd like to participate if this goes forward.

    The only thing that you have holding you back, is your fear of failure.
    Perfumery is utterly filled with failure. Embrace the failure to learn... :-)

    For anyone on the fence , please look through the previous games:

    http://www.basenotes.net/search.php?searchid=39254137
    The judges don’t pull any punches, and you have to be a little thick skinned! BUT! People are smelling and evaluating your creation, and writing a critique.
    I run after people pushing the smell under their nose, and they say :”that’s nice”
    I have a dear friend , I wanted to make her a perfume, so I wanted to see what to work with. She either couldn’t smell the material at all or said it smelled like woods.
    I find it frustrating to have a hobby that is hard to get feedback on. I am absolutely thrilled about the game.

    I will start rounding up entrants tomorrow. Come on and have some summer fun!
