When Lush shared the photo of my perfumes, two events occurred:
- My fragrances were introduced to a larger (and music-loving) audience.
- Some of my fragrances were introduced to their inspirations.
It wasn’t long until after Lush’s post that Warren Defever of His Name Is Alive began tweeting:
finally included on a list of influences for a vegan perfume https://t.co/T4dOHU632b— xoxo war (@hisnameisalive) May 19, 2016
I contacted Warren and offered to send him both the eau de parfum and huile de parfum versions of Livonia, inspired by the eponymous album he released in 1990. I wasted no time in shipping a bottle of each to Warren, along with my deepest gratitude for his inspiring music.
Fast-forward to today: My sincerest gratitude to Warren for sharing this photo. I am a fan of him and his music, and this acknowledgement of my efforts is most rewarding.
