A passion for fragrances
When I was around 7 or 8 years old, I had a passion for fragrances. I used to make my own ‘perfume’ and loved the idea of being creative.
Many of my friends were creative too and we would find ourselves picking flowers from the neighbours garden to make our creations and completely deny to the neighbour that it was actually us that had picked all of their Magnolia, Amaryllis and Chrysanthemums!
Having picked such beautiful flowers form the neighbours garden, we’d find a suitable bowl from my mums kitchen, pop them in the bowl and crush them up with our fingers into tiny little pieces.
It was a very messy job. Our fingers would be a mixture of green and brown and boy did the flowers stain!
A great recipe- a passion for fragrances
Once we had our crushed petals, we’d add a little water. The colours would start to drain from the petals and we ended up a with a bowl of mush, pretty much.
The best ingredients-perfume
The best ingredient that we could add was actual perfume. Now, where can we find a nice bottle of perfume to add to our mushed petals…
A quick sneak into my mums bedroom to ‘borrow’ her very expensive YSL Black Opium fragrance…..

She won’t notice her favourite perfume was missing. She won’t miss a little drop for her expensive bottle.
After all, she hardly wore it anyway because it was expensive and adults only wore expensive perfume when they went out somewhere posh and worthy of wearing it.

The complete creation of perfume
Well, after mixing mums favourite perfume into the bowl with our mushed up petals and possibly a little soil from the neighbours garden too, our complete creation smelt absolutely lovely… I could have become a millionaire!!
As for the bottle of my mums perfume…. empty !! I was a very fast runner as a child ……
