Sandy Silva, Canadian Fashion and Beauty Industry Analyst, The NPD Group
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? Chanel Chance. I discovered it by chance—pardon the pun. A friend had the twist-and-spray in her purse. I was intrigued by the handy size and sold once I tested it. I love that it’s feminine yet fun.
What’s your best new find? Relatively recent was Guerlain’s La Petite Robe Noire Eau de Parfum Couture. It’s distinctly different from any other fragrance I’ve tried lately.
How many bottles are in your fragrance collection? Three, probably not too many compared to most. I try to keep it simple—one for work, one for going out, and one for after the gym.
What’s your signature spritz style? Pulse points, for sure. Back in the day when you could smoke in nightclubs, I would spray my hair constantly to avoid smelling like an ashtray.
