How much slep do you get?

I don’t have much of rou­tine since I travel a lot and have two chil­dren but ide­ally I try to get six to seven hours’ sleep each night.

How do you sta rt your day ?

I al­ways drink a glass of warm wa­ter with a slice of lemon. The morn­ing is all about my kids, get­ting them ready for the day. With what­ever time I have left I have a very speedy beauty rou­tine. I start with the Jo Malone Gera­nium & Wal­nut Ex­fo­li­at­ing Shower Gel – the scent of crisp gera­nium is per­fect for the morn­ing. I fol­low with a sim­ple clean­ing and mois­tur­is­ing rou­tine and ap­ply light, nat­u­ral makeup. I don’t ap­ply any other scented prod­ucts as I need to keep my skin clean and neu­tral to test fra­grance sub­mis­sions through­out the day. My goal this year is also to in­clude a power meditation each morn­ing.

Favourite room in your house?

The liv­ing room which is filled with the chil­dren’s toys; it’s the heart of the home.

Your per­fect meal?

Any seafood with fresh sea­sonal vegeta­bles and a good glass of wine. I also love my lo­cal Ja­panese restau­rant.

Where do you like to hang out in Lon­don?

I al­ways en­joy a walk along the canal in Vic­to­ria Park. The gal­leries in the East End are amaz­ing; they are small, in­de­pen­dent and cel­e­brate lo­cal artists.

Dream hol­i­day des­ti­nati on?

I love go­ing to my par­ents’ house in the south of France. For a week­end get­away, it has to be the English coast.

If you could only use one Jo Malone Lon­don scent for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Wood Sage & Sea Salt; it’s so fresh and ver­sa­tile.

What ’s the best piece of ca­reer ad­vice you’ve been given?

“Good is not good enough” – I once heard this from Leonard Lauder. When I started in prod­uct de­vel­op­ment I felt this was es­pe­cially true and rel­e­vant to my job.

Do you have a work uni­form?

I tend to wear what takes my fancy that morn­ing and gen­er­ally try to be colour­ful.

What about on week­ends?

My son Felix likes it when I wear dresses so I tend to wear these on the week­end to make him happy.

Can women have it al?

Yes, I be­lieve they can. The key to this is hav­ing the right en­ergy; if you can do that then you can have it all.
