Questionnaire

  1. 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

  2. Desert Island fragrance?

    Pretty much anything that Annick Menardo has had anything to do with.

  3. Favourite book?

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar

  4. Favourite film?

    If I had to pick one, it'd probably be 'It's a Wonderful Life'. Even though I generally dislike Christmas.

  5. Favourite food?

    All the major food groups: Haribo, Tea, Bacon and Marmite

  6. Favourite place in the world?

    London will always have my heart, but I will secretly have affairs with Paris, New York and Florence

  7. Favourite music/Desert Island Disc?

    Too hard to choose one thing.

  8. 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.
