Pacific Perfumes' Postcard Series: Wellington’s Love-Child

A collaboration about Perfume and Art and Music; Perfume and Words; Perfume meeting Diversity; Perfume and Belonging- between us and three emerging artistes.

Inspired by three talented young Wellingtonians who have come to our studio and explored their 5th sense through our perfumes: we thought a snapshot of their inclinations and opinions would be something to share with you, so with every Internet order we'll pop in a postcard!

Fashion, food, our lazy moments, national identity, heroines and heroes, the streets we walk, what binds us, makes us laugh, makes us open our eyes wide, tempts us to smell, tempts us to discover…

What do you do?

I write. A song or on my blog, in a journal or an email to a loved one. Writing is a big part of who I am. Being able to compose my insides on the outside is integral to me managing and documenting my growth.

Heroine, historical or contemporary…

A tie between - Quincy Jones, Spike Lee, Oprah Winfrey & Grace Coddington. They are pure visionaries who think/dream up something and will stop at nothing to make it come to life.

If you travel (country or planet) the Pacific Perfumes fragrance you’ll take?

Not a matter of if but when I travel to New York I'll take Love the Mango. It reminds me of a summer in Samoa: simplistic and sweet. As well, Forest of Ferns, which is basically the smell of everything remotely refreshingly, dope.

You love Wellington because?

I feel totally absorbed into the culture of the city. From one street to another you go on journey. Wellington has defintely put itself on the map with its individuality, people, culture, architecture, food, and fashion.

What do you do?

I am a passionate dancer who loves to be a sponge in all areas of life. I believe in setting yourself up from the beginning in order to reach your goals.

Fav mammal, amphibian or insect?

Meerkat - little, fast and cheeky like me.
