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 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.

Following the success of our first run of MOCIUN #1 perfume oil, we decided to rerelease it in it's own unique packaging. Same great fragrance, brand new case. With notes of neroli flower, petitgrain, and layers of amber and white musk. Available here.
On a recent trip to Denver, I stopped into the new Sub Rosa Mercantile in the Sunnyside section of town. I hit it off with the owner of this small shop and now MCMC Fragrances is available in Denver! In fact, this is our first Colorado stockist so for all you out there, please visit this wonderful shop.
