What’s your all-time favourite fragrance? There isn’t one scent I’m completely loyal to or return to time after time. I love changing my scents with the season. My go-to for fall is something along the lines of Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir. In the summer, I prefer perfumes with a citrus note. 

What’s your best new find? I was in the south of France last summer and was lucky enough to take a day trip to Grasse, which is home to French perfumery house Fragonard. I discovered so many wonderful, subtle, feminine scents for summer.

How many bottles are in your fragrance collection? More than I’d like to admit. Perfumes have a shelf life, and I’m sure a couple of them are past the best-before date.

What’s your signature spritz style? A few healthy sprays to the neck and dabs on the wrist.
