Who: Flora Macdonald-Johnstone, beauty assistant at British Vogue. We got an instant girl-crush on Flora when we met her at a press event recently, she looked so fabulous. For those of you wondering, Flora’s shoes are from Lost Inc and her gorgeous gingham dress is from Sister Jane.
Today I’m wearing Escentric 03 by Escentric Molecules. I love the atmosphere it creates, it lifts my mood and makes me feel very confident. When I wear it, I instantly feel so much better about myself. It also generates a lot of reaction from friends and I really enjoy the dialogue it creates.
Fragrance creates a wonderful sense of intimacy. The moment you find a fragrance that you love and share it with your friends, you instantly create this wonderful atmosphere.
I’m a bit of a perfume addict, I apply it two or three times a day. I apply it after I’ve put my clothes on and it’s the last thing I do before I go through the door. I always dab some onto my wrists, then a little bit behind the pulse points on my neck, and sometimes on my clothes as well, depending on what I’m wearing. I also have a separate hair perfume!
Smell is like a base-tone of life, I really enjoy that. Your sense of smell is a very beautiful sense which, although you use it all the time, many people don’t appreciate.
