1. How did the custom Perfume Playground™ (PP) experience level you up?

The PP experience gave me insight into how I tick. I began to realise internal beliefs that aren't just present in my professional life (what I initially went in expecting to discuss), but my personal life, too - and how these beliefs hold me back. It made me realise I want to challenge myself to try to break the habits that cause these false, limiting habitual thoughts to persist.

2. Tell us about your lifestyle, how you sleep, work, eat and play and and what your wellbeing rituals typically are?

Generally, I have quite an unstable lifestyle! As a freelancer, sometimes I work really hard, sometimes I don't have much on the horizon, sometimes I burn myself out. I have never been a good sleeper and have finally started to meditate to try to help with that. I am a pretty healthy eater and can't function without exercise, so I find my sanity in those areas.


3. What is the number 1 thing you liked about being part of the custom experience?

The best part about the custom experience was it wasn't at all rushed! It was all a space to deeply reflection on the things I wanted to improve, and it was empowering to have someone else working with you to find solutions in a safe,  judgemental-free environment.

4. Other comments or recommendations about the custom Perfume Playground experience?

The PP experience was simply divine. It made me feel like my experiences and feelings were normal, but also understood and important. It's like you leave with this little bottle to keep in your handbag which you can use as ammunition to help you through life! Learning about the different scents was pretty darn cool, and gave me insight into a world that I didn't realize I could be influenced by, and I tell ya what - I've never smelt or felt better!

5. What's something you approached differently recently because of what you learned during your custom Perfume Playground experience?

I think as well as loving the whole experience, the PP experience has given me the opportunity to step back and reflect over and over again. Every time I apply the perfume, it gives me a moment to get centered and feel comfortable with my feelings knowing that I have the power, the mindset and the tools to deal with whatever life throws at me.

I worked with Samantha from Perfume Playground at a time when I was feeling notably lost and devoid of inspiration. She created an environment where I felt safe and comfortable talking about these things, and provided a space for positive growth and change throughout the entire-perfume-process (which was, in itself,… Read more

‘The scent consultation was a totally unique and new experience, being blindfolded heightened my senses & made my sense of smell come alive. I have never ‘smelt’ in such an intense way – I think we all take smell for granted sometimes. The different scents all connect to memories, ideas,… Read more
