April Aromatics - San Francisco Rose Fundraiser for Tama Blough

April Aromatics founder Tanja Bochnig has teamed up with Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief of CaFleureBon, to create a limited edition fundraising perfume for perfume blogger Tama Blough. Tama has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and the proceeds of the perfume will go into a fund that will help Tama with her medical expenses and the living expenses of her and her cat Buster. Tanja created 200 bottles of a perfume named San Francisco Rose, as roses are Tama's favorite flower.

Being new to the perfume scene, I haven't had the opportunity to read many of Tama's contributions to the perfume world that I am growing to love. Even so, I can tell that she has made a large and memorable impact. 

I am very moved by this gesture and wish the best for Tama on her journey forward. I have purchased a bottle (actually my *first* full bottle purchase since seriously venturing into perfume) and hope that all of the bottles will find loving homes.  

The perfume sounds lovely, with listed notes including Rose Otto, Rose Absolute, Orris Root, Hibiscus Seed, Tonka Bean, Sandalwood, Patchouli and Oud.

If you're interesting in purchasing a bottle, they are available at the April Aromatics website:

There is also a Give Forward page for Tama.
