The fruit of the California live oak, the acorn, matures between August and October. From there, if conditions are right, a little sprout will eventually emerge. That little sprout, inch by inch, over many years will develop into a gorgeous tree.
Like the California live oak, my perfume company continues to grow, inch by inch. I owe much gratitude to those who have supported me with patronage and the writers who have helped get the word out. One such writer is Beth Schreibman Gehring, who has written a piece for the Examiner about the botanical perfume “Q”, devoted to the California live oak, Quercus agrifolia.
