What’s your all-time favourite fragrance? Prada Infusion d’Iris. I tried a sample in a gift bag and was hooked. I’m on my fifth bottle, and I also love the moisturizer in the scent. I have a few other nostalgic favourites—I don’t necessarily still wear them—but love that they remind me of a great memory. I wore Versace Red Jeans travelling around Europe when I was 20—there were four of us and we all wore it! Watch out, Barcelona. For my entire Grade 9 year, I also wore The Body Shop Fuzzy Peach. 

What’s your best new find? Valentina Poudre. First of all, they had me at that matte bottle—absolutely stunning. It’s a pretty scent without being too sweet.

How many bottles are in your fragrance collection? I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to scent. I only have two to three bottles and truly wear Prada most days.

What’s your signature spritz style? I walk through a multi-spritz mist.
