The perfume of consciousness

“HOOD RIVER was the first perfume I made in a Chypre class. Finally, it ended up as a fantasy oral… Maybe I was lucky as the first attempt at Natural Perfuming to create HOOD RIVER, as it has been one of the most popular scents in the Flying Colors Collection. However, Ayala Moriel commented that my perfumes were very androgynous in design and could be worn by either gender very well. HOOD RIVER has been popular with both men and women equally.”

In the PERFUME Special Edition 2022 of Aromatika you will also learn about the composition of this perfume and several others. Anita Kalnay’s article ‘The perfume of consciousness’ brings exciting moments of her 30+ years of passion and thoughts about natural perfumery and essential oils. Anita works with over 500 essential oils and lives in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. This is how her journey started in natural perfumery:

"Happy 50th Birthday!... oh by the way... you're only operating at 1% of your potential!" said Dr Berkowsky my Aromatherapy teacher… WOW! 1%, I was shocked, to say the least, as I had worked so hard developing my career over the last 15 years already. But no... if I was only at 1%, then now what? So... Fifteen years ago, on my 50th birthday, I decided that it was time to enter the world of Natural Perfumery.
