- 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.
