My husband and I were married lakeside at this beautiful woman’s beautiful property.

She had a handful of freshly blooming gardenia bushes that she pruned the morning of and placed vases of all over for us. Since then, I have gravitated to gardenia fragrances

PINROSE:
What is your signature scent and share how it has become that for you...

SAM:
The smell of gardenia! My husband and I were married lakeside at this beautiful woman’s beautiful property. She had a handful of freshly blooming gardenia bushes that she pruned the morning of and placed vases of all over for us. Since then, I have gravitated to gardenia fragrances

PINROSE:
How important are fragrances in your life?

SAM:
CANNOT live without (Are you kidding?)

PINROSE:
Could you share a memory of a travel destination or a place (like home or elsewhere)...and what that memory SMELLS like?

SAM:
My mother was adopted from Costa Rica when she was 13 and left behind 4 siblings. We were able to travel there in May. The smells of freshly brewed coffee, warm pan (bread), and sweet organic fruits like mango and papaya remind me of our cathartic and special trip.

PINROSE:
As we all walk into 2022 together, WHO is The BOLD SOUL in your life?

SAM:
My mother. She is the strongest, most resilient, and smartest person I know. She has grown through all the turbulence life has dumped on her and has always come out stronger, pulling her children and loved ones with her.
