When I was thinking of writing about the price which goes into creation of botanical perfumes I first thought to name the post: Why Natural Perfumes Are Expensive. But I quickly changed it since I was never going to prove my point of view but to simply state the fact and support other artisan perfumers in their beautiful creations.
