What & Where:
Los Angeles-based celebrity makeup artist originally from Puerto Rico.
I’ve been using Orange Blossom for most of my adult life. It reminds me of being outdoors, walking on the beach, catching fresh air, looking at the view of the infinite ocean, the bright blue sky, feeling grounded, centered, and serene. It also brings memories of freedom, laughter, dancing, and joy.
Perfumery as Medicine:
Perfumery as medicine means scents that create a soothing, healing reaction through the olfactory sense in the body and mind.
