Thoughts on perfumes

Angela Turovksaya

“There isn’t a particular formula, but it needs to be a really well-composed fragrance with as much as many authentic ingredients and one that reflects charisma and uniqueness in some way.  I personally lean more towards oriental fragrances these days after being exposed to the Middle Eastern fragrance culture after living for more than a decade in Dubai. However, those fragrances still have a very classy nature.”
