Olfactoria (aka Birgit) is a thirtysomething perfume afficionado living in Vienna, Austria, who stumbled into the world of fragrance and got stuck.
I was awed by thoughtful, intelligent and engaging blogs I found pertaining to scent. I read many of them and found kindred souls who inspire not only my perfume choices, but also provide food for thought. Here I want to offer my own perspective. I review old and new perfumes, write about the ins and outs of my perfume infatuation and maybe I can even help in finding the right fragrance for you. I welcome comments or questions through email anytime!
I view fragrance as art, perfumers as artists. Appreciating art is as much a matter of taste as it is of knowledge. I strive to develop the first and broaden the latter, without forgetting the most important part – having fun along the way!
Olfactoria’s Travels lead me through the world of fragrance, I would love for you to join me…
