I grew up in a small town in Northern France where there are many forests, and the smell of woods always brings me back to this which is a very special scent memory for me.
A rather clever friend of mine gave me a ‘Scent Library’ from Penhaligons when I was a young teenager.
That single product completely transformed my perception of scent and has informed the rest of my career.
My first scent memory is of my Dad.
He used to wake me up for school and would have always just shaved beforehand.
Ever since, I’ve loved the scent of shaving soap and often gravitate towards fragrances that smell soapy and clean, like my Dad.
