About me

I am Cathryn Bailey, a mid-career professor of gender and women’s studies at a university in Michigan. After years of keeping my “serious” intellectual pursuits separate from my passion for perfume, I now follow my philosopher’s nose on a romp through fragrance to explore the playful and serious sides of both perfume and philosophy.  I’m also a photo enthusiast, so the pictures on this site are all mine unless it is flat out obvious that they’re not, or is otherwise noted.
