Was it destiny?

Looking back at my life; I was destined to make perfumes. My childhood was spent on the orchard; the scent of dark fermented manure, melon blossoms and oncoming thunderstorms. In college I studied culinary arts; I arranged spices, herbs and wines. When I moved to Tokyo I lived next door to incense filled, Buddhist temple gardens. My travels and life experience is well documented in the perfumes I make.
