Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Bazaar Fragrance Awards 2016 -

The fash­ion mogul of­ten cel­e­brates her love for flo­rals with fra­grances and gar­den par­ties. Along with the re­lease of Tory Burch’s Jolie Fleur col­lec­tion, BAZAAR speaks scents with her. Tell us about your gar­den ... I worked with land­scape artist Perry Guil­lot on the lay­out, which was in­spired by the gar­den’s orig­i­nal lawn dat­ing back to 1929. We ac­tu­ally pulled archival pho­tos and recre­ated the planted bed ar­eas. In­tro­duc­ing Jolie Fleur fra­grances ... Rose is a clas­sic fragrance that epit­o­mises fem­i­nin­ity; Verte is cen­tred on lily of the val­ley—it has an easy­go­ing, tomboy qual­ity that I love; and with Bleue, we tem­pered the tuberose, a heady scent on its own, with grape­fruit and ve­tiver for an un­der­stated and el­e­gant mix. Gar­den­ing mem­o­ries ... I get my pas­sion for flow­ers from my mother, Reva. She loves fresh blooms and is al­ways so creative with them. Sig­na­ture flower ar­rang­ing tips ... Al­ways cut the stem di­ag­o­nally with a sharp knife; each ar­range­ment is like art— dif­fer­ent heights are im­por­tant; and at a din­ner table, never have the cen­tre­piece too high.
