The Natural Perfumers Guild Winner of the Steffen Arctander CD is Ilaine Upton of Virginia, USA

Congratulations to new member Ilaine Upton of Virginia - her name was chosen randomly from among the new members of the Guild who joined in May, 2009. The drawing was to coincide with the 3rd Anniversary of the launch of the Guild on June 1, 2006. As we enter our fourth year, we are delighted that we can offer such treasured items as the Steffen Arctander CD of his three-volume set Perfume and Flavor Materials of Natural Origin and Perfume and Flavor Chemicals Thanks to Guild Supplier Allured Business Media for donating this wonderful CD, valued at $900.

Ilaine joined as a Friend of the Guild and stated on her application: "First it was a rose garden. Then rose otto, absolute and concrete. Then the search for something that would blend with it. Well, there was the 1877 volume of Perfumery and Kindred Spirits, purchased decades ago, sitting quietly... (then the application form cut her off! LOL)

Well, Ilaine, you should find this searchable CD a great addition to your studies, and we in the Guild wish to congratulate you on your win.
