Perfume is such a personal signature. I love how I can pass a stranger on the street and they smell like my first boyfriend, or when someone is wearing my college perfume and all of a sudden I’m taken back to that time in my life and I can remember things so vividly. My wedding day perfume, which I wore throughout our honeymoon, instantly takes me back to that day whenever I put it on now for romantic occasions. I love that: being able to remember a feeling, a moment, a time in my life just through the delicacy of scent.
By now you know my affection and long-term creative relationship with DKNY. I was looking at the Be Delicious bottle at the studio and I thought it could be fun to show visually the beauty of perfume… the way the glossy liquid swirls and how the light dances. If you know DKNY’s Be Delicious you know its main note is apple, fittingly so since DKNY is all about the BIG APPLE (see all the references now?). I love the opportunity Cinemagraphs give us to make things come to life and celebrate beauty even in small ways.
What is your favorite perfume? Do you change what you wear depending on the weather, your mood, your style that day, or where you are traveling to? Should you have one scent forever or should it change as we change in the course of life?
