sweet meets spicy

One chilly night a couple of months ago, the gorgeous Padma Lakshmi came by our studio to get a crash course in perfume making. Tazo is debuting a new chai tea latte and who better to be their spokeswoman than Padma, who grew up drinking her grandmother's chai every day. We smelled everything from Japanese yuzu citrus to fresh jasmine together, talking about how flavors and scents meld to concoct fragrant recipes. Take a peek at our video above!

a cup of jo, hatch, and baby news

Last Saturday my friend Joanna invited me to Madison Square Park to drink milkshakes (yum!) at Shake Shack and model Hatch's new Spring/Summer line of maternity clothing. Her friend Anna came along too, and we dished on what life with two kids will be like. I'm due June 15th - so soon! 

You can see the full post with more photos here. I ended up taking this trench home with me. I'm hoping it will be good for post baby too!

happy valentine's day

“For my husband’s first fragrance, I bought him Terre d’Hermès — a really earthy, woody fragrance — from a small shop in Grasse, France, where I was studying at the time. Later I ended up making a beard oil inspired by him with the working title ‘Dude,’ which is what our friend’s kids call him. Eventually I named it Dude No. 1. The scent has a life of its own now — friends started asking for it and I incorporated it into my line — but when I’m close to him and smell it on his skin, that’s where it belongs. That’s always been his secret scent.”
Thank you New York Times for sharing our story!

The New York Times

I was so incredibly honored to be included in The New York Times' Food Section last week for their column, Close At Hand. Each week, writer Ligaya Mishan seeks out a New Yorker and photographs him or her in their home with a precious kitchen object. I chose my mom's lacquer trays. Growing up, my mom would always serve me an after school snack on a tray. I didn't know it at the time but the trays are all antiques, hand-carved about a hundred years ago. They're a symbol of her care for me, and remind me to be a kind and gentle mother with my own son.

caitlin

Caitlin is the designer behind MOCIUN, a jewelry line based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Her custom diamond cluster rings are coveted by brides-to-be everywhere. Her creativity knows no bounds from clothing, to store design, and she has a great curatorial eye for small items like ceramics and knives, which she also carries in her flagship store. We've collaborated on two fragrances so far, and the process of unraveling what another designer has in their olfactive imagination has been rewarding for me too.

Name: Caitlin Mociun

Occupation: Designer

Hometown: Nevada City, California

Where do you currently reside: Brooklyn, NY

Favorite MCMC fragrance: MCMC x MOCIUN collaborations #1 + #2

When did you start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: I started when I was young but the first one I really started wearing the repeat bought was an Issey Miyake perfume called Le Feu D'Issey.

If you were a plant, what would you be?: A bitter orange tree.

What's in your refrigerator right now?: Not much, I'm on a trip to Italy.

Three words that describe you: Passionate, intense, silly
