I've recently revamped my organ, creating a new inventory and labeling everything more clearly. In the process I researched and looked at photos of many organs for inspiration. Considering the limited space of a New York apartment I'm very happy with mine but desperately wish for a larger and more expansive version.
I've had the great privilege of taking courses with the fabulously talented Mandy Aftel and creating perfumes from her fantastic scent organ. Where I might have a mere 1/8 of an ounce of a rare and precious oil, Mandy has a large ground glass stoppered bottle full! It's really something to aspire to.
I also fell in love with a few other images of perfume organs that I found online. Some are more extensive with room for lots of perfume ingredients. Others are more up my alley, making do with a small space - and having to be creative in how the space is used. I love the images and long for room to grow and create. In the meantime I'm happy with my collection, it's where I create new formulas and do consultations with clients, enabling them to create their own custom perfume. It's my happy place.
