The Sarah Bernhardt Peony
I am so grateful to inspiring femme Wendy (The Smell of Everything) for introducing me to this site Surrender to Chance! You can get rare, vintage, and unique fragrances in a variety of trial sizes. I have been venturing out from my standards (Quelques Fleurs, Tom Ford) and really enjoying it! I love violet and jasmine as well as powdery scents that aren’t too sweet. These tiny tinctures would make good femme Christmas gifts since committing to buying a lady a full bottle of a scent can be scary in case it turns out not to suit her.

“Consider the 3 S’s: source, significance (or sacredness), and similarity. Has the source community either tacitly or directly invited you to share this particular bit of its culture, and does the community as a whole have a history of harmful exploitation? What’s the cultural significance of the item — is it just an everyday object or image, or is it a religious artifact that requires greater respect? And how similar is the appropriated element to the original — a literal knockoff, or just a nod to a color scheme or silhouette?”
