The Perfumed Plume’s first special evening dedicated to fragrance journalism welcomed industry notables and fragrance fans to Joya, a fragrance design studio founded by Frederick Bouchardy in Brooklyn on 2/13/2017.
Noted fragrance journalist and author Sarah Colton read excerpts from her new book ‘Bad Girls Perfume Tips & Tales”. In entertaining and dramatic style that captivated the audience, Sarah’s book references the world’s most sensational and sensual scents and how they may have influenced men and women throughout history. With great wit and wisdom, Sarah shared with the fascinated attendees her take on why and how perfume can be so very empowering.
“We were so honored that Sarah flew in especially from Paris for this first in a series of Perfumed Plume events dedicated to creative fragrance writing,’ explains Mary Ellen Lapsansky, Co-Founder. ‘Sarah’s talent writing about such an ephemeral, mysterious topic is an inspiration to any aspiring journalist. What a fun night!”
“Such a thrill to be asked to read from my book “Bad Girls Perfume” at the very first Perfumed Plume Awards evening dedicated to fragrance journalism,” enthused Sarah. “A great audience, a fantastic location at Joya fragrance studio set the scene for this tale of scent, seduction, passion and power.”
Lyn Leigh, Co-Founder agrees “The idea for a book-reading went right to the heart of our mission to recognize and celebrate writers of a broad range of entertaining and informative scent stories that appeal to the consumer and that’s what the evening was all about thanks to Sarah’s excellent book”.
“We had a blast working with the Perfumed Plume Awards and hosting Sarah’s book reading. The crowd was passionate about two things that are always on our minds at the studio: fragrance and words,” added Frederick Bouchardy, Founder & Owner of innovative Joya, a fragrance studio in Brooklyn.
