“My mom used to mix perfumes when I was growing up. Her scent was a combination of floral and citrus tones—very light and crisp.” — Kat Tanita, With Love from Kat
“My mom is incredibly elegant. Her signature uniform is a cashmere sweater, pearl earrings, cropped trousers, and ballet flats—very French and very effortless.” — Kat Tanita, With Love from Kat
“What I loved most was to sit at my mom’s vanity, which was draped in French toile. I’d watch in amazement as she pinched the tassel atomizer. I relive these moments each time I pick up a fragrance that exudes a velvety elegance, like Roses de Chloé.” — Jenny Bernheim, Margo & Me
“When thinking of what to gift someone on any occasion, especially Mother's Day, the most special thing you can do is to give it a personal touch.” — Jenny Bernheim, Margo & Me
“My mum lives in Germany and I live in Los Angeles, so we have to Skype on Mother’s Day. I’ll be sitting in bed with a small breakfast at my computer, all ready to chat with my mom.” — Mija Flatau, Mija
