I have not met a perfumer that was solely inspired by walks in botanical gardens, or long hours spent mixing scents in a lab. Our fragrances are inspired by our own experiences, our travels and the people in our lives. I may be the new kid on the block when it comes to perfumery, but I am no different when it comes to this aspect.
My fragrance, Remember When was inspired by my first trip to Miami, Florida. To me, the city has a unique, airy scent. It was the same scent in every store I walked into, and outside by the beach and in the city. It was soft and fresh, yet dry at the same time kind of scent. I tried describing the scent to a friend who was with me and after many failed attempts of me trying to get her to smell it too I gave up and thought it was just a me thing, until I got home and had a "remember when" moment.
I was walking in the mall and passed a beach themed store and the smell instantly took me back to my time in Miami. It was that moment that inspired the name and theme of memories for my fragrance Remember When.
I really believe it's the little things in life that bring out the greatness in us. Let's get a conversation going, share your experiences with me in the comment section below.
