I specialize in scent development for perfume, candles, skin care, and incense. With sensitivity, flexibility, and experience I approach each project individually from the foundation on up. While supporting my clients vision to create a scent that is distinct to their identity, I offer an array of compositions and variations as well as my expertise on botanical essences and incense.
