The process of Creativity.

Do you dream in color?  Have you ever dreamed with fragrance?  Sometimes I do…

This fragrance has haunted me since the first time I smelled it in a dream…this is the closest perfume reproduction I can make.  It is not exact, but very close. I love this one so much I felt she deserved her own blog entry…

I wanted to share a little bit of my insane process of creating with you in hopes that you will love, or at least better understand the end result.

I keep little blotter papers near me so I can scratch out ideas and inspirations as they strike-I have been known to pull over when driving to record ideas, jolt upright out of sleep to scratch them down,  and sometimes they just quietly sneak up and tap me on the shoulder.  Either way I hope this helps you understand the crazy that creates my fragrances….

Bella Notte Fragrance note scribbles

A few weeks ago during a rainstorm I woke up at 2 am in the middle of a haunting dream about a girl with a velvet dress (I think I am going to write a book about her someday) reading an old leather book, cemeteries, angels, roses, mist, leather,  and I could literally smell her perfume.

I decided to re-create her Perfume and I have decided to call it Bella Notte (Italian for Beautiful Night)

Bella Notte Perfume: Rich Dark & Warm, Intense, Sensual and Feminine…it begins like a dream with wistful  Rose Absolute & Grey Amber, mid notes of Smokey Cedar  grounded with Dark Sweet Benzoin & Vanilla, hints of Wild Lavender, ancient Woods and Earth, infused with burnt Caramel Bitters.

Inspired by old roses on a lovers grave, tattered time worn velvet, lost love, longing and heartbreak, misty full moons, wild gardens and herbs growing irreverently, remembrance of things past…

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think….❥

Love, Laughter & Candlelight!
