“Even if I’m going to sit at home all day working alone or going to bed alone, spraying perfume feels like the finishing touch and it has me saying to myself, ‘Okay, we can now start the day.’”

What & Where:
Founder of Claude Home, based in New York City and Los Angeles.
Sandalwood. It’s my absolute favorite scent. I won’t wear a perfume unless it has a Sandalwood base.
Fragrance gives me the feeling of being free and loving myself. Scents bring back so many memories and there are so many fragrances I love. For some reason, Sandalwood gives me the feeling of strength, acceptance, and loving me.
Perfumery as Medicine:
This means a few things to me. But one is self-care and love. My mom was mostly single growing up and she would spray her perfume before going to bed. I asked her, “Why do you spray perfume if you’re going to bed alone?” She responded, “Sleeping pretty isn’t just for your spouse; it’s also for you”. That always stuck with me. Even if I’m going to sit at home all day working alone or going to bed alone, spraying perfume feels like the finishing touch and it has me saying to myself, “Okay, we can now start the day.”
