Grant Osborne is the founder and editor of Basenotes. Grant has two children, and a dependence on tea, haribo and bacon.
- What was your first fragrance?
I don't know. A relative gave me a half-full bottle of after shave when I was 13. I can't remember what is was. All I remember was that the liquid was yellow, it stank, and I kept it in my sock drawer
- Desert Island fragrance?
Pretty much anything that Annick Menardo has had anything to do with.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
If I had to pick one, it'd probably be 'It's a Wonderful Life'. Even though I generally dislike Christmas.
All the major food groups: Haribo, Tea, Bacon and Marmite
Favourite place in the world?
London will always have my heart, but I will secretly have affairs with Paris, New York and Florence
Favourite music/Desert Island Disc?
Too hard to choose one thing.
What hobbies/interests do you have apart from fragrance?
Food: eating it and making it. I love reading, though I try and avoid fiction unless I'm on holiday as I can't put books down to the detriment of everyday life. My project for 2014 is to attempt to make a muppet style-puppet.
