About Me: My name is Jessica. I live and work in the New York City metro area. I’m an art historian by day and a blogger by night; I’ve been writing weekly fragrance reviews for Now Smell This for the past five years, as well as occasional guest posts at Blogdorf Goodman.
About Tinsel Creation: I’m envisioning this blog as a space to gather all my internet musings beyond perfume reviews, especially my thoughts on the interesting points where beauty and fragrance intersect with art, literature, and culture. It is very much a work in progress.
About the name: “tinsel creation” comes from from a poem by Florine Stettheimer, one of my favorite artists. I like this phrase because it combines something frivolous with something serious. You can read the entire poem here.
Product review policies: I only review products that I’ve personally tried. I do not accept any payment for mentioning or reviewing a product, nor do I participate in affiliate programs. For every product review, I will note the source of the product (e.g., purchase, gift with purchase, store sample, press sample).
Comments: In order to post a comment, you will be required to enter a user-name and an e-mail address. Your first comment will be held for approval. I will not share your information with anyone else.
