“Scent is transcendent.”
– Sophie Haig
What & Where:
Los Angeles-based makeup artist and green beauty enthusiast.
I have such fond memories of long, lazy afternoons I spent at the beach as a teenager in Northern Sydney, Australia. At about 4:30 pm everyday, I’d get off the bus from high school with my best friend and we would walk down the back laneways to our local beach. Every spring, the fresh salty air would begin to mingle with the scent of newly blossoming jasmine. Jasmine was the scent that signified the end of the school year and the beginning of summer, the scent of hot days spent in the cool ocean, bonfire nights with friends, and messy teen romances. To this day, jasmine has this bittersweet quality to me. It represents the nostalgia of my childhood and the beginning of something new.
Perfumery as Medicine:
Scent has the ability to gently (and not so subtly sometimes) interrupt your senses. It can stop you in your tracks and thoughts. Scent is transcendent; it can transport your thoughts to a different time or moment, whether you need comfort, a mood boost, or an energetic shift. Scent can do just that and it can be very healing.
