Meet our sensorial nose, perfumer - Terees Western, FragranTed's Founder, a savory blend of sweet meets spice!
Terees Western is a fragrance and flavor educator, passionate perfumer and vintage fragrance collector with a noble nose.
Since childhood, Terees has had an ACUTE sense of smell and taste. Encounters with flavors, fragrances, spices and herbs delighted her mind and mood. These super sensory traits grew into a lifelong fascination, pursuit and study of perfumery and culinary pleasures. As creator of the title and the first Scent Docent(TM) worldwide, Terees gives talks, provides sensory experiences and creates thoughtfully crafted fine fragrances using botanicals from around the world.
Certified by the Fragrance Foundation with an honors level professional fragrance specialist qualification, as well as earning an MBA degree from Pennsylvania State University and a BA degree from the University of Michigan, Terees has a wealth of knowledge on scent history, the fragrance industry, perfumery ingredients, fragrance consumers, scent culture, international business and strategy. Prior to pursuing her passion for perfume, Terees was an accomplished Global Corporate Communications and Human Resources Executive in the automotive and luxury goods industries.
Deeply inspired by the sentiment of scent cultivated from her Alabama family heritage and Detroit childhood, Terees now infuses her love of nature, the arts and global culture together with her flair for communications to help others understand the splendor of scent.
Terees often says “A Fragrant Life is a Peaceful Life”. Scents, aromas and flavors are simple ways to discover simple delights. One spritz, dab, drop or taste can radically uplift your mood and mind.
Through FragranTed, Terees hopes to inspire a more pleasant world through scent. Drop by drop, she brings beauty to your soul and bliss to your senses.
