Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. — Henry David Thoreau.
Each of the four divisions of the year (autumn, winter, spring and summer) are marked by particular weather patterns and daylight hours, resulting from the earth's changing position with regard to the sun. Perfume Playground hosts four intimate workshops where you create a signature scent for the seasons.
