Olfactory Nostalgia with Bonita Kye
At In Fiore, we believe the skin is a sense organ and scent initiates healing. Olfactory Nostalgia is a look at medicinal triggers, scented memories, and the feelings that ensue when taking in a distinct ingredient.
Meet Bonita Kye, the founder of Los Angeles-based KYE Intimates, a line of everyday undergarments made consciously and sustainably. Each piece is considered and handmade in LA with carefully selected deadstock or renewable materials to minimize their impact on the environment.
“Growing up in a devout Buddhist family, we would wake and sleep to the scent of incense.”

What & Where:
Founder at KYE Intimates based in Santa Monica, CA
Growing up in a devout Buddhist family, we would wake and sleep to the scent of incense. I didn't appreciate it much when I was younger, but now the scent of Hinoki brings such a sense of peace and clarity to my everyday and reminds me of home.
Perfumery as Medicine:
It is the scents that are deeply personal—the ones that help ground, uplift and reset.
