What Was The First Fragrance You Bought Yourself And Why Did You Buy It?
The first time I wore a fragrance was in Grade 3. At lunch I decided to spritz on some Miss Dior, then returned to class and was soooo embarrassed when everyone noticed and asked why I was wearing perfume (which, I of course vehemently denied…..). The first fragrance I bought was Perry Ellis. Why? Because I loved his designs (we sewed from his patterns); I was obsessed with his signature, and the fragrance was fresh and distinct (and not too grown up for a teenager). If only I could still get it today.

Unfortunately the most noticeable fragrances aren’t always the best. I am drawn to fragrances that are subtle and natural-smelling instead of seeming overpowering and manufactured.
How Do You Scent Your Own Home?
I spray perfume in our room every time I make the bed and keep fresh flowers in the house whenever possible, and I like to have a scented candle or diffuser in the front hall and in the powder room.
What Does Your House Smell Like?
Royalty by Tom Dixon and peonies or lilies whenever possible.
