Tama Blough: A Party for Tama


Tama Blough Oct 18, 1954 – January 9, 2015

Hiya Perfume Posse,

Tama Blough, who started SF Sniff –  the San Francisco group who’d come together and sniff fragrances (obviously, sorry) and Managing Editor for CaFleurBon is in trouble. We have a fragrant friend in need, diagnosed with incurable cancer and a desire to stay at home with her cat for as long as possible. Tama is not a wealthy person and needs our help to make this small wish come true.

Already the fragrant community has rallied behind this cause: April Aromatics released a Limited Edition fragrance that sold out in minutes, Nina Zolotow set up a GiveForward campaign to raise the $25,000 needed to pay for health care and living expenses (who will BTW give $25 for every blog written about it to a max of $1000, very freaking cool)

Paul Kiler of PK Perfumes has now created TNT (Tama N Tuberose) and is donating 90 percent of all proceeds to Tama’s fundraiser.
60ml/$150  90 percent ($135)  going directly to a fund managed by Tama’s family.

A Party for Tama

Coming up on the 17th of January are a couple of amazing events in San Fransisco. If you are nearby then you should definitely think about attending.

Private Lunch and Auction: $35 includes Lunch and Auction (more details about Auction nearer the date)

Shopping event & Cocktails: A percentage of all sales will go to Tama from the Tigerlily event.

And Tama, if you get to read this. Best of luck, cuddle the kitty from us at the Perfume Posse darling.

Tama Party

    Portia, thank you so much for posting this! I can’t tell you how moving it has been to see the perfumista community rallying around Tama. The generosity of this community is literally making it possible for us to provide Tama with full-time care-giving now that she needs it. She’s at home now, where she wanted to be, surrounded by her perfume collection and with her cat Buster coming and going.

  • Holly says:

    Thanks, Portia, I’m very happy to see this. I will pass the word on! xo

  • Ann says:

    Excellent, Portia! Thanks so much for helping get the word out about fund-raising for Tama. She is such a great lady; sure wish I had gotten out to SF for one of her events and met her in person.
