“Scent is medicinal! Without a doubt! My mood is altered by scent.”
What & Where:
NYC and LA-based Makeup Artist
When I was a kid, I had a beautiful perfume bottle of orange blossom that I proudly displayed on my dresser. It smelled so much like the orange blossom honey my mom kept in the kitchen, and I would sit in my room and sniff it an awful lot. It was my first scent addiction! Years later when I was looking for a house in LA, I walked into my current home with all of the windows open and I could smell the fragrant orange blossoms from the two old orange trees in the backyard. I immediately said I’d like to take the house based solely on that. It’s heaven when they bloom!
Perfumery as Medicine:
I love this sentence. Scent is medicinal! Without a doubt! My mood is altered by scent. I feel it to my core, particularly when the scent is artistically formulated with purpose, whether to relax, invigorate, or entice.
