...ScentFan:(...) sourced from indigenous harvesters of rare plants around the world, thereby preserving both people and plants.(...)At this point I can say that exploring NadiaZ perfumes is a worthwhile challenge, especially since some of her ingredients may never be available again.I hope you wouldn't mind me 'cropping' your post, ScentFan, if you do, I apologise! It seems to be an interesting experience indeed, and I was glad to read your thoughts both on these fragrances as well as the concept and the actual process of ordering these, also because detailed feedback seem difficult to be found.One thing that made me wonder, however, is the point I have quoted from you; as far as I could understand, part of the concept is to provide an almost 'mystical' olfactory experience to each human, but I could not fathom in what way harvesting and using rare ingredients should lead to preserving them at the same time, especially if they are of extinct nature, except for raising the demand for those via commercialising and keeping these 'cultivated' by larger sponsors. At any rate, thank you a lot for sharing your valuable experience! :-)
...Since I had deleted ('edited out') my initial post, a re-post:Yes, the sad experience with a fragrance I fell in love with, only to discover after perhaps 2 years that it was already discontinued ("Aqua Allegoria Ylang & Vanille"), together with my inclination to be rather inflexible in my taste, made me think of securing another bottle if it can be found at a reasonable price. It's been the same with other consumables - take food, or cosmetics and skin care products as another significant group (where the search can be long and literally painful if one has atopic skin); every product I finally found to be just the one and perfect for me got discontinued.Also, I feel reluctant to consume the only bottle of a fragrance if it's discontinued and it's only sold for a three-digit-price on auctions. I care less if I'll ever 'finish' a bottle or everything I have, I can't imagine perfumers wishing us to feel under pressure for their creation to be 'used up'.
