Welcome and thanks for stopping by. I live and work in Barbados and this blog explores perfume-making, plants and gardens, and anything beautiful or inspiring from the simple to the serene. Part of the mission of this blog is to identify, promote and bring awareness to the raw materials and ingredients that can be grown in Barbados and the Caribbean for the ethical and responsible manufacturing of perfume and skin care products.

My work both on and outside of this blog is divided into three categories:

  • Researching and writing about perfume and skin care ingredients, tea and chocolate.
  • Making artisan perfumes and a line of soaps and skincare from Barbados sugar cane juice. My products can be found at one of the island’s premier natural attractions – Andromeda Botanic Gardens in St. Joseph.
  • Facilitating aromatic soirees and classes for special events, bridal showers, small travel groups to the island. Focus areas include perfume-making basics and the culture, history, and heritage of spices and essential oils.
  • For questions, product, or work inquiries please e-mail me at amandajonesbb@gmail.com
