I went to India on a trip of a lifetime. Stumbled upon a perfume shop in Rajasthan. Drawn to crystal glass bottles of which on a whim, purchased. Told of their unlikely arrival by India Post, promised to follow my dream if they arrived safely home.
Founding the Perfume Playground sat alongside an immersion into the natural world which included certification in flower essences, aromatherapy, medical herbalism, plant shamanism & Rongoa Maori Medicine.
Followed my nose to the USA to become a Certified Natural Perfumer under world renowned alchemist Mandy Aftel.
Within the first year of business taught over 700 people, in five global locations, to make Natural perfume. Not a day goes by where I don't experiment with perfume notes, designing and sharing shimmering layers of fine fragrance.
