Stylist, author, collector of vintage and eclectic wares, and owner of The Society Inc Favourite bloom: damask rose ( Rosa damescena) “This many-petalled rose is rich and earthy in scent. The oil from the petals provides the essence of attar of roses, as used in perfume.

Hence my enduring love of the flower and the inspiration for my new candle from The Society Inc.
