    What kind of perfumes do you typically go for?
    More earthy, woody scents for everyday; more feminine and fresh for special occasions.
    What’s your earliest memory of perfume?
    The women in my family aren’t heavy perfume wearers, so I don’t have many early memories. But, my earliest and strongest scent memories are of Old Spice, my dad’s aftershave, and honeysuckle, which my sister and I would pick with our grandmother.
    What perfume did you wear at age 13?
    It was either Clinique Happy or all of the Bath & Body Works scents, together, at once.

    What did your home growing up smell like?
    Herbs, grass, woody/smoky aromas… my mom is an acupuncturist and when I think of our home growing up, I think of scents associated with her practice like sage and fire.
