‘My earliest scent memory is the smell of hospitals and disinfectant; I had to be rushed to hospital for my appendicitis when I was 4 and this is my earliest memory. Surprisingly as I considered it a pleasant one, since then I find the smell of hospitals oddly satisfying. My childhood was also spent close to the sea so the smell of salt, sea and suntan lotion is embedded in my DNA and any fragrance inspired by these scents makes me happy. When I first arrived in London, it was a rainy December day and I was really impressed by how the air smelled different after it stopped. I love the smell of open green spaces and how all gardens bloom in spring. I learned to love roses very much in the last 8 years!’
