Name: Stephanie

Store: Covent Garden & Mayfair

Job: Sales Assistant

Age: ....I'm in my twenties!

Fragrance: I change my mind all the time depending on my mood, but at the moment I'm loving Fumée Arabie for it's sensual warmth and depth.

Retail Therapy: Browsing for vintage homeware and furniture at places like Lassco in Vauxhall and The Old Cinema in Chiswick.  

Favourite food: Whatever the locals are eating....whilst in Morocco recently I didn't set foot in a restaurant the whole time. If you see a crowd huddled round a street food stall you know it's going to be good.          

Favourite Haunt: Angels & Gypsies restaurant in Camberwell - the best tapas in London.

Londoner knowledge: The terraces of The National Theatre - when the Southbank below is heaving in the summer they're often virtually empty and it's a great place to sunbathe and people watch.      

Strongest scent memory: Washing powder - it reminds me of sitting on the bed sorting out socks with my Mum.

Top Tip: Spray your fragrance in the air and step into the mist - it leaves a lovely delicate scent on your hair and clothes.

I ♥: Sunshine! Come on spring....
