What Perfume means to me?
“I absolutely love and I am passionate about scents that invoke a feeling of mystery and sexiness. Over the years my scent has changed along with finding scents for every season. I love dark amber notes along with rose. Lavender in the spring and summer reminds me of the calmness that nature brings with warm weather. Though wearing something like Tom Ford Lavender is best worn in winter months that has bold, invigorating sense of calmness.
Coming from an Egyptian Family I grew up with smelling oils and scents every summer when I went back home to visit family in Cairo. Scents have been an always integral part of my life. Not only as a young child but also as an adult, fragrances have been playing a big role in my daily ritual of getting ready, from day to night. As business owner it plays a big role in conversations with owners and developers of hospitality spaces.
As a hospitality designer, scents are essential to discuss the brand foot print in choosing fragrances for hotels and restaurants, and even retail spaces.”
