Ally Dean, Fashion & Beauty Editor, Hello! Canada Magazine
As we gear up for the 2016 Canadian Fragrance Awards, get to know our panel of expert judges.
What’s your all-time favourite fragrance? Years ago I was given a bottle of Creed Royal Water and have been hoarding it ever since. It’s classic and elegant, with a hint of spice—like a Louboutin pointy-toe pump. I only wear it when I need a little something extra special.
What’s your best new find? My current favourite is Byredo Gypsy Water. It’s a light, woody scent but isn’t overpowering. It’s also available in a hair mist, which is perfect for those days when I’m 80 percent dry shampoo, 20 percent human.
How many bottles are in your fragrance collection? I have at least a dozen bottles. Most are unisex fragrances that blend woody and spicy notes with a hint of citrus. My man and I even share some, including Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille and Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb.
What’s your signature spritz style? I shroud myself in an offensive cloud and then add one more spritz.
