My camera has never smelt as divine as it did after a day with Karen Gilbert. The sharp scientific mind that waxes poetic about the smell of golden fields, rain wet cement and can bring sensual lightness to any moment. It is this sharp and brilliant contrast that makes Karen Gilbert is an expert perfumier. Having cut her teeth as an entrepreneur in the tatoo and piercing industry, Karen Gilbert is more rock and roll than pastels and lace and is taking modernizing how it is we relate to fragrance and perfume. It is her incredible genius of being equally curious about the science of fragrance, her classic English warmth and her keen design sensibility that is that is allowing women of today to realize their dream of having their own signature perfume and to build a brand around it. Karen, your boldness and tenacity is wildly inspiring and each time I now find myself lost in vetiver and sandlewood, I think of you and wish for your voice describing the beautiful miracle of this sensual world.
