About Liz Zorn Perfumes: All of these fragrances in the “Good Luck Series” play heavily into the influences of perfumer Liz Zorn, who has a keen interest in Eastern Philosophy, Tea and the art of conceptualization.
A painter by trade for many years, Liz has been able to translate her sensibilities for color and composition in to the fine art of perfumery. After a two year building phase, Liz launched her first line of ready to wear fragrances (The Signature Collection of natural perfumes) online in the summer of 2006. Followed up with a small boutique ZZs Petals Parfume Moderne, in the fall. Interest and popularity of the line as been growing ever since. Particularly the natural perfumes, which are quite popular at the moment. And the first love of the artist, who began her study of perfumery with the blending of natural essential oils and floral extracts.
The Good Luck Series is a slight departure. Using a mixed palette of both natural and modern perfumery elements.
Artists Statement: “I feel that to create a quality perfume with a high level of natural materials as I do requires a unique sensibility, as well as a disciplined study of scent structure as a whole. Particularly if that perfume is to be reflective of perfumery in general. Natural perfumes and perfumes created from a mostly natural palette, are different in many ways from their mainstream counterparts, yet should be held to no less scrutiny in the marketplace. Being an independent perfumer, I have the luxury to work with many rare and exotic materials. When I am cultivating an idea for something new. My only interest is in the beauty creation and expansion of my art. I have little interest in what has already been done. Perfumery is so vast, where the possibilities are endless. I love that. Even though there are so called “Masters” this is an art that can never be mastered. If it were, I would have become bored years ago and moved onto something else.”
Where To Buy: The Good Luck Series, will be available beginning November 1st. through the Liz Zorn Perfumes web site at www.lizzorn.com, and through Zz’s Petals Boutique in Morrow (Cincinnati) Ohio.

Where people can stop in have a cup of tea, sample and talk perfume at their leisure. Chado, Oolong and Yin Hao, will be on the menu (tea and perfume)."
From our correspondence with Liz Zorn,
"Chrysalis: a new scent in the Signature Nature Collection was launched back in the spring along with Underworld and Waterflower. We now have an EDP version of the Chrysalis available. that was added to the online store this week.
It can get a bit confusing sometimes, because I do not always offer online the same things that we sell in the boutique. If something is selling well in the boutique I will add it to the online store. If something doesn't sell well online, I will usually remove it.
Right now our best sellers online are Chrysalis, Grand Canyon and Citrine Rose.
Citrine Rose is the best seller overall. Online and Boutique.
The new Good Luck Series: Will be a permanent fixture. A series that will be added to over time in collections of three like minded scents. In my long career as a painter I always worked in series. So crafting three perfumes at a time, on the same theme, is not such a stretch for me. My aim is to get folks to experience perfume in the same way as they do other art forms. Not just as a consumer good, but something with artistic merit. Conceived from a particular aesthetic point of view, rather than a bottom line."
