My passion for fragrance comes from when I was a little girl, my grandmother would make me take a nap.  We didn’t have air conditioning so the windows were open.  My bed was next to the window that had her garden below it.  As I would lay there, with every breeze that came in, I would smell the beautiful fragrance of her lilacs and jasmine, among other flowers.  Needless to say, I didn’t mind my naps! And it gave me an early introduction to to understanding the different notes in a fragrance.
