perfumer * collector * designer * crafter
Growing up in a family of fine artists, gourmet cooks, supreme crafters and seamstresses gave Tausha Lell a foundation in the arts. Through her childhood she had a special interest in drawing, writing and cartooning. In her early 20's she changed her focus to the healing arts and found a special comfort in aromatherapy. After taking some courses and studying the culture of aroma she settled into a career as an artisan perfumer. Beginning in 1996 she became co-owner of Euphoria, a gift shop located in Lafayette, LA specializing in locally crafted artwork, jewelry, aromatherapy products and unique vintage collectibles. It was here that she truly began blooming as crafter and artist. With the ability to house a large collection of essential and fragrance oils, she began developing her own signature line entitled "Euphoric Blends". Customizing both therapeutic and fragrance blends for her clientele gave her a comfortable knowledge base regarding her favorite medium, oils. Though she considers herself a perfumer first and foremost, she is also a talented artist. Creating works from recycled materials that are unique and functional. Currently, Tausha is in relocation to Portland, OR where she will open her new re- retail store "ReBelle's" in the spring of 2012. Here she will host Louisiana artists, a complete perfumery bar, local crafts, original furnishings, collectibles and of course artwork with an emphasis on recycling. She looks forward to promoting her line of fragrances in the northwest and joining her southern flare with the great arts and crafts community of Portland.
