A bespoke fine fragrance
by Pell Wall
If you make perfumes yourself and are looking for supplies you'll find some useful links on the Perfumery page.
Whether you are looking for ingredients, bottles, regulatory information or almost anything else, the search facilities on the Perfumer's Search Page are sure to be useful.
Eight fragrances from Pell Wall are now available in London:
The Taj Khazana at the St James' Court Hotel on Buckingham Gate - just around the corner from the Palace - and a short walk from St James's Park and Victoria stations.
The Pell Wall range is on offer at two Shropshire bricks-and-mortar locations:
Newport Central Pop-up Shop in Newport where we share the space with a terrific range of other local crafts and small businesses. The shop has recently moved to more central premises on the High Street and is open at The Guildhall from Monday to Friday.
BiG Red's House an art gallery and craft workshop in Whitchurch that is also a Community Interest Company working to help reduce suicides among young men.
I'm proud to be a member of the British Society of PerfumersThe society supports the art and science of perfumery and holds a series of events each year many of which are open to non-members too.
Technical Links and acknowledgements
I've used ideas from Stu Nicholls' CSS Play site, which I heartily recommend, including the design of both the main and product menus. I added gradient images made with from Dynamic Drive.
Speaking of footers, you'll have noticed the validation logos in the footer on every page of the website: I've found the validation services from W3C to be a great help in ensuring that the site meets xhtml standards and the code behaves as expected. If you are developing a site I recommend using these compliance tools: despite throwing up a lot of errors in what appears to be a perfectly functional web-page they will save you time and effort in the long run.
The storage and file-sharing tool Dropbox is handy for providing a secure storage place for website back-ups and perfume formulae that I can access from multiple machines or directly over the net. (and you can get 2Gb of storage free as well).
Throughout the development of the site I have had help, advice and testing from several sources. Special thanks is however due to Duncan Tincello for much technical support and help.
