MUNICH: There are days when I cannot wait for that moment to close my eyes, put some perfume on my skin and take a deep breath. Whether you use your scents only in the morning or at night or every now and then during the day to inhale some good vibes, a favorite scent can make all the difference.
We selected the warmest fragrances for the season, which give us the illusion of sunlight, cosiness and the smell of herbs and spices for a warm, content feeling.

I use a couple of different perfumes during the day, also to match my mood and the situation I am in. A perfume can actually make you feel better at whatever you do. All these perfumes smell of natural ingredients like almond, musk or roses and some of the flowers can actually calm your spirit or energize your soul.

I place them in different locations. For example MARRAKECH INTENSE by Aesop is aways on my desk at work, because it just feels right to use it when I am illustrating or on the phone; it is not too flowery, but smells of wood and a little bit oriental which relaxes my mind. MUSK by KIEHL’S is in the room with my yoga mat and I sometimes even put a few drops on the mat as I like the pure smell of musk while I am excercising .

JASMIN ROUGE by TOM FORD is perfect for going out at night, or for a long lunch with friends. It symbolizes a certain luxury of endless time for me, jasmine is the dominant note and makes a very hedonistic blend. CARNAL FLOWER by Dominique Ropin is part of the FREDERIC MALLE EDITIONS OF PARFUMS and it is perfect in the morning, especially when the sun is shining, it’s full of tuberose and it reminds me of freshly delivered flowers which I love to get in the morning.

INFUSION D’AMANDE PARFUM by PRADA is only one scent of a limited edition of six which has been created with Daniela Roche Andrier and Miuccia Prada. It can be worn by men and women and is a truly pure scent of almond, heliotrope, tonka beans, musk and an essence of anise.

DONNA VALENTINO is a walk through a blossoming flower garden in Italy, with Bulgarian rose,iris, patchouli, bergamot and vanilla. I use this scent only on my clothes, not on my skin where it smells a bit rougher.

IRMAS TIPS:
Use your perfume directly on clothes, shoes and accessories. Do not spray it directly onto these items but rather from a distance and through a silk paper. I spray the perfume also on sheets of paper or clothes which I place in between my lingerie, laundry and into my shoe cupboard.

You can also create your own body talcum powder by using the Dr. Hauschka Silk Body Powder and spraying some splashes directly onto the powder. Use it straight away.
