“Fragrance helps me stay grounded and mindful and can make me feel more put together.”

What & Where:
New York City-based digital creator and co-founder of The Chain.
I grew up Catholic, attended Catholic school until I was 22, and lived in Rome for a bit, where I frequented Saint Peter's for mass. So the fragrance of incense and an old church feels familiar and grounding for me. The idea that I can be anywhere in the world, walk into a Catholic church, and feel at home because of its heady scent makes me feel warm and deeply connected.
Perfumery as Medicine:
Fragrance helps me stay grounded and mindful and can make me feel more put together. It's a small ritual in which I find joy every day—whether it's in the form of a candle, fresh flowers, strong coffee, or my favorite perfume.
