I was 12 years old and my mother came back home with a present for me, it was my first perfume, L’eau d’Hadrien by Annick Goutal. I still remember the first time I put it on my skin. Really fresh citrus notes but really comforting at the same time. That’s when my passion for perfumes started. Since that I love discovering new scents and new stories.

The smell of oranges reminds me of my Dad, he often boils them to get rid of the smell of curry as he is a chef!

Every time I smell Angel by Thierry Mugler I am 16 again and fell feminine for the very first time!

My scent memory has to be the smell of my new born daughter, Aurelia. I suppose it must be something biological but she smelt of honey, sugared almonds, freshly baked bread, sunshine, honeysuckle and everything that is golden, delicious and addictive. I could not stop smelling her. I will never forget it and I still half expect to smell it when I lean over and smell the top of her head now, a year and a half later. Sadly that scent has gone but it shall stay forever etched on my memory.

Every time I smell J’adore Dior it makes me think of my auntie. It’s her scent… and it always makes me smile no matter what day I have.
