The Dry Down is a newsletter and salon series about perfume (and also not about perfume at all in that it is also about memory and history and a thousand other things) that I curate + write with my friend and business-partner-in-crime Helena Fitzgerald. We run perfume salons in New York featuring talks with perfumers, scent writers, poets, designers, journalists and experts on fragrance history. The Dry Down has been featured in Racked, Nylon, Cosmopolitan, Autostraddle, and elsewhere. To read the newsletter and learn about future events, please subscribe here.
