You get to the perfumery begin tests everything you see on the shelves, you put various perfumes on the wrists, neck and arms until you do not have a single piece of free skin; so that you have the smell so saturated that you cannot distinguish any perfume.

Later, when you leave the store, at best, you feel discouraged and without perfume, in the worst case you have bought a perfume for the smell of the first ten minutes; for in some cases check, that once past that time, the perfume evolves in a way that you do not like.

Mi nombre es Maite Barroso del Cerro. El perfume es mi pasión, y guiada por ella, me he dedicado a estudiar sobre la elaboración del perfume antes de la irrupción de las sustancias odorantes químicas. He recopilado conocimientos significativos sobre dicha elaboración, sobre las notas naturales, y métodos de elaboración de manera autodidacta, aunque también he realizado cursos, por ejemplo el realizado en el Centro de Capacitación profesional Corazón Verde "Elaboración de colonias, perfumes, y destilación de plantas aromáticas". Lo primero que una percibe cuando comienza a estudiar este tema, es que hay una gran cantidad de información, imposible de discriminar la relevante de la que no lo es. Te sientes Teseo en el Laberinto, intentando encontrar un hilo conductor que te permita escapar al Minotauro con vida, o lo que es lo mismo, aprender algo antes de morir... Afortunadamente!, encontré el hilo y ahora quiero divulgar parte de ese conocimiento, volcándolo regularmente en este cuaderno de perfumes. Mi actividad profesional se ha desarrollado siempre en el Marketing, estoy actualizando mis conocimientos en Marketing con un grado, lo que me permite cruzar ambos conocimientos y experiencia, y hablar también sobre Marketing olfativo. Espero que lo disfrutéis como yo, nos leemos. Maite Barroso del Cerro
