First Party: Mission Accomplished

Sound the bells, for my first "Under Construction" perfume party is now complete! It was a super fun afternoon of sitting around drinking wine, eating fruit, chatting, and making perfume with a group of amazing women. Except unlike a typical party, I left with money and product orders! But like a typical party, I also spent the entire morning (and a good chunk of the night before) preparing.

The cat stood guard.

This first party (more like a focus group really) was great for pinpointing some of the kinks that are still in the setup. Like, the need to bring coffee beans to clear out the nose between sniffs. And how I really should have figured out shipping costs before embarking on this journey.

We also had a lot of fun coming up with so-horrible-they're-genius ideas for artisan perfume lines. But that information is above your classification level, and this evil mastermind does not make the mistake of revealing her plot, only to be thwarted at the last minute.
