As some of you know, I decided to take a little time off this winter due to stress and generally feeling overwhelmed with life and business. It was nice being able to step away and get myself together, and to be able to meditate on what this brand and my work means to me. I felt that I was getting into a place of trying to do what would be popular rather than what was true to me. I always wanted to create perfume that was an expression of myself and my interests, but I kept finding myself on projects that were the typical mainstream perfume trope of "like [x], but with [note]". Some time out of the studio, reading, and just enjoying the things I enjoy helped me to get back on track with making perfumes with integrity.
That said, I'm excited for what I have in store for the future, and can't wait to share it with everyone.
