Truly Blessed

Greetings-

Ok, so I’m going to be completely honest. This blog was not my idea.


Everyone I know said, “Neil you have to have a blog.” What I have realized as I continue to meet so many wonderful people on other blogs and community pages is that by having my own blog, I will have a central place for me, and at times my business partner and friend David, to communicate with everyone.

I have to start by saying how grateful we are to EVERYONE who has helped us get to this point. I am truly blessed with a wonderful family, a lifelong group of friends, and an incredibly supportive group of perfume aficionado friends. I know it can be dangerous to single people out, I mean no slight to anyone else, but I do have to thank Karen Dubin and Karen Adams from Sniffapalooza for EVERYTHING they have done for us and for the entire perfume industry, for that matter! Karen Adams is the queen of organization as the operations side of Sniffapalooza’s site and events. Karen Dubin is a master at networking. She not only knows the entire world, she is incredibly generous at introducing people that she knows “have to meet.” Thank you both so very much, you know how much you mean to David and me.

As far as the online community of perfume lovers, I am, and continue to be, blown away by how wonderful everyone has been and the beautiful reviews and comments you have written about my fragrances. For me, the sense of smell is all about connection. I don’t think of myself as creating “perfumes” as much as weaving stories through scent. The fragrances that I create are based on personal memories or musings and nothing makes me happier than to introduce people to my world through the fragrances I create. The fact that so many people have taken the time to write to me or leave a post on a blog about connecting with my fragrances and relating to the stories has been overwhelming. I thank each and every one of you for your love and support.

I’m planning on writing on this blog about once a month for now. So until next month I wish you,

Fragrant Dreams,

Neil

"For me, the sense of smell is all about connection. I don’t think of myself as creating “perfumes” as much as weaving stories through scent"
And that is one of the reasons we all love them. That dash of romance.

As a recent convert to the world of Neil Morris I am happy that we will be hearing from him on a monthly basis. I hope he finds blogging to be a little extra whipped creme on the sundae of his life. :)

*poke* Why didn't anyone tell me you started this? I had to find out all on my own :) I am linking you right away darling. I hope you will forgive the familiarity of this message.. But after living with your scents for a while now, I feel so close to you.

Muah!

Neil:
Best of Luck ---
You are the PROUST of perfumery, creating les madeleines de notre memoires pour tout votre amies. Now finally to a global audience.

I have learned so much about myself, my instincts and emotions from your fragrances.
