If like Michelyn and me, you are a fan of all things Steampunk, (and even if you’re not) you’ll love Aether Arts latest perfume by Amber Jobin, (she's the 2014 Winner of Art and Olfaction Awards for John Frum, 2016 Finalist for Love for Three Oranges, and 2017 for Saffron) tribute to the Industrial Age both real and imagined, called appropriately Pince-Nez pronounced Ponce NAY(The Scent Of Future Past). Named for the antique pince-nez (“pinch-nose”) glasses that rest on the bridge above the nostrils, Ambers’ new offering is a delightful and joyful spin on a classic lavender fougere, enhanced with traditional Steampunk- inspired notes of metal, oil, glass, and all things mechanical.
Thanks to Aether Arts Perfume, we have a 5.5 ml bottle of Pince-Nez for one registered reader worldwide, so be sure to register if you have not done so. The random winner is Dawn Crawford.

This is a deadline and no exceptions if you are late. Please use your email from your comment so we know it is you. A thank you to Amber Jobin for her generosity in your email is much appreciated.
