Thank you so much Portia! My apologies for my late response. I love your beautiful words on Desert Flower and that you found some of your native Australian desert in the perfume blend. It was such fun to answer your questions, thank you for including me in your fabulous perfumer interviews and thank you American Perfumer for the opportunity! xo

I couldn't agree more Portia. "Desert Flower," I think, represents Maria's value system for the modern chypre; through her choice of these materials, deployed at parfum strength, Desert Flower somehow feels both intimate and big-sky wide-open. Satisfying, and flat-out beautiful. - Dave, AMERICAN PERFUMER

Geisha Noir is one of my favorites. Great interview!

Another great piece Portia. Thank you for it. Maria is such a lovely and thoughtful person. Desert Flower is truly imbued with its maker. Very proud of it around here. Best, Dave - AMERICAN PERFUMER

Geisha Vanilla sounds lush

Another interesting insight into a perfumer's world, I love these! I have sampled Aroma M Geisha Vanilla Hinkoki in the past and really want to sample Amber Rouge. I was not familiar with House of Cherry Bomb. Love the thought of vintage and rare oils and ingredients!

Another fascinating interview, thank you Portia! Geisha Noir is my favorite from this house, so deep and gorgeous. I enjoy my samples of the vanilla scents from a couple years ago, too, and now I want to try Desert Flower.

I love that you are doing these,Portia! If I am being honest I will tell you that I never tried anything from this house. I had emailed her a while back with a question and she never responded to my email so I kind of dismissed this house. Desert Flower sounds good though :)
