My first fragrance was?

Clinique Calyx, It was very sweet and very fruity.

It reminds me of

I got it when I was 15 and it reminds me of being on the cusp of womanhood and the excitement of becoming a grown-up.

My current fragrance is?

I wear all three of the Hugo Boss fragrances. I like to mix them up.

I love it because

I love Ma Vie because it’s so personal and immediate; it smells different on everyone. When I wear it, it gives me a feeling and I just like that feeling.

My most nostalgic scent was

Freshly cut grass in New England reminds me of my childhood and onions sautéing reminds me of cooking for my family.

Fragrance hobbies and skills

I have candles burning all over the house, in almost every room. One of my favourites is Le Labo Santal 26.

I also like to layer different fragrances.

Personal statement

I’m drawn to an eclectic mix of scents. I wear different ones depending on my mood that day. I wear men’s cologne, really feminine florals, citrusy things and really musky woodsy ones too.
