A Great Perfumer Passes Away
British perfumer, Alec Lawless founder of Essentially Me and author of several books died in a crash.
Essentially Me was honored last year (2011) with a UK FIFI AWARD nomination and finalist for the highly successful and beautiful natural perfume, EMPRESS OF INDIA.
I got to know Mr. Lawless last year through email discussions and recognizing his passion for natural perfumes. He was such a wonderful and nice man and this news deeply saddens me.
EMPRESS OF INDIA perfume showcased a spirit of freedom and historical culture aspects that makes it a true masterpiece that truly embraced me with the first sniff from the bottle.
I will always remember Mr. Lawless's numerous classes focusing on the making of natural perfumes and how much he gave of himself.
Fragrance Belles Lettres Magazine salutes a great perfumer with a purpose that goes beyond the fragrance.
