A couple of years ago my beautiful friend Jenny Gordy moved to Iowa, making all of us here in Brooklyn who knew her so sad. She's quirky and witty, as well as talented and kind. Today she shares her beauty routine and tips on Cup of Jo and it makes me smile to think of her far away but wearing NOBLE on dates, and borrowing her husband's sweaters for the hint of Dude No.1 Beard Oil.
See her full Beauty Uniform here.

Cara is one of the few friends I have who is a New York City native - a Queens girl to be exact. We met through mutual friends and became close two summers ago when we decided that we would spend one day every single weekend of the summer on the beach at Fort Tilden. A dancer by training, I always look forward to her performances (yes, I might secretly want to be a dancer).
Name: Cara Liguori

Favorite MCMC fragrance: I heart PHOENIX!
When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: When I was young, I used to pull all of the perfume sample pages out of fashion magazines, smell them one by one and pick my favorite just for fun. I started wearing perfume when I got a Christmas present of four perfumes in one carrying case: vanilla, lemon, jasmine and I can't remember the fourth one but its cap was blue. The first I ever bought myself as a teen was Sunflower by Elizabeth Arden.
If you were a plant, what would you be?: A morning glory.
What’s in your refrigerator right now?: A lot. Leafy greens, sprouts, dark chocolate, butter, mushrooms, corn, miso , and hummus to name a few.
Three words that describe you: Discerning, compassionate, enthusiastic
Our lovely friend Kyra traveled to the Greek island of Hydra and took along her collection of MCMC perfume oils. They're the perfect travel companion!
Thanks to Cydney Wixon for the photos.
I met Ilana several years ago as she was first starting her eponymous clothing line. She's a talented textile designer and tailor, matching her custom prints on simple, wearable silhouettes. We've often traded clothing for perfume and every time she comes to the Dobbin Mews for a visit, she asks what new scents there are and enthusiastically sprays some on. There's nothing more gratifying to a perfume maker than a perfume lover!

Here's to the man who wakes up and makes me coffee every morning, walks the aisles calming our baby on long plane rides, is teaching our son how to play basketball, and still brings me flowers just because. Happy Father's Day!
