Helen is the co-founder and Creative Director of Fuzzco, the Charleston-based design agency behind many an awesome branding project (think Mailchimp, Bonobos, and Etsy). You'd never guess how hard this lady works being as that she's so nice, humble and chill! We met on vacation in upstate New York and reunited when she asked us to make a pair of signature fragrances: E.d'E. Black and E.d'E. Blue.

When did you start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: I remember sneaking into my parent's bathroom as a kid and getting into my mom's Chanel No. 5. It is the only scent she's ever worn and whenever I smell it I think of her. When I was 16 Iwent to an older friend's house and she had Fendi Theorema which I fell in LOVE with. I bought my own bottle once I'd saved up enough money. I still have it and love it.
If you were a plant, would you be?: I'd be a Socratea exorrhiza or Walking Palm because I need to live in warm climates and I can't sit still.
What's in your refrigerator right now?: A lot of pickles that my husband made and a bunch of wine.
Three words that describe you: Independent, energetic, compassionate
