Even though I’ve been fascinated by perfume since I was a teenager, I still studied first law and then journalism. I started writing professionally, and then about three years ago I thought of doing a blog about perfume.

My First Fragrance

I fell head over heels for Habanita, by Molinard, at first sniff on a visit to Grasse when I was 13. I still wear it.

My Favorite Fragrance

Even though I do like to try new scents, my favorite perfume is still L’Heure Bleue, a floral-oriental with multiple facets. It’s as sensual as it is elegant, mysterious and poetical.

The Fragrance that Makes My Heart Beat Faster

I think Bois d’argent is super sexy on a man, and Musc Ravageur is just plain sizzling on a woman!
