Love trying raw ingredients in the Academy course. Raw Patchouli brought back memories of childhood walks in the forest.
An explosion of spices (cardamon, cloves, cinnamon) in the curries that were on the stove when I walked through the front door after school.
Fresh air, grass, blossoms – summers in Germany visiting family!
I remember going to my grand-parents’ bathroom, showering myself with my Grandpa’s L’Habit Rouge de Guerlain, and showing off to the whole family.
The scent of walking into my late father’s art studio. The scent was a powerful: woody incense and sweet oil. I have launched a candle brand with my fragrance memory as the candle scent.
I am still in search for the jasmine that my friend who was 8 years old brought to Bulgaria from her aunt in Paris 1992.
Springtime African smells. We had beautiful Frangipani trees in our front garden and I had a jasmine growing outside my bedroom window and remember waking up to the heady scent everyday.
My best fragrant memory is of Jasmine. The small white flowers making a canopy over my deckchair on a greek island, where I am sipping ouzo: the combined effect is positively intoxicating!
