My im­pres­sion rarely changes but some re-en­coun­ters bring up how they’re still rel­e­vant af­ter so many years, such as Issey Miyake’s clas­sic L’Eau d’Issey. What makes a great fragrance? Like great works of art, it should in­voke emo­tion. It is sub­jec­tive to each per­son, but it should speak to you at that mo­ment in your life be­cause, af­ter all, a good fragrance should be a re­flec­tion of it. Why do you think noir scents are mak­ing a ma­jor come­back now? Per­haps they never re­ally went out of style. Also, sen­su­al­ity is cel­e­brated more than ever now, and the def­i­ni­tion of noir scents is broader than be­fore. What is your most mem­o­rable mo­ment with a par­tic­u­lar scent? Sun­screen mixed with sea wa­ter. I used to go to the beach with my fam­ily very of­ten as a kid, and that scent, es­pe­cially when locked into my hair af­ter a long day out, re­minds me of sun­sets and sa­tays that we would usu­ally get af­ter.
