The use and enjoyment of scent on ourselves and in our homes dates back millennia. It adds quality to our lives. Here are some personal takes on the matter from a few famous folks who know what they’re talking about.

Diane Ackerman
“Because we can’t escape our ancient hunger to live close to nature, we encircle the house with lawns and gardens, install picture windows, adopt pets, grow Boston ferns and make sure to scent everything that touches our lives.”



Carolina Herrera
“I always remember my childhood house with happy memories. There was a beautiful garden, and outside my bedroom window was a jasmine vine that would open in the evenings, giving off a divine scent.”



Mark Ronson
“My late grandmother always wore Tuberose perfume. Then I dated a girl who wore it too and I could only think of my deceased grandmother. Sometimes a signature scent can be good and sometimes it can be bad.”
