Summer travel is around the corner, which means it’s time to stock up on a new fragrance for your next trip. But rather than just pack a travel-sized version of your go-to scent, allow Hollywood’s resident perfumer, Lisa Hoffman, to match your fragrance to your specific destination. Hoffman first started mixing her own perfumes at the age of six, thanks to a gift from her uncle, and worked off of her grandmother’s Chanel No. 5 as a model. Fast forward to 2017, her eponymous fragrance-jewelry line is as understated as it is transportive, which makes her our ultimate fragrance guru, especially when it comes to preparing for far-off locations. Whether you’re jetting Copenhagen, or sailing to Meads Bay, Anguilla, trying a new scent for the adventure will take you back again with a single spray. Here, Hoffman rounds up a few of her favorites, the unexpected and new beauty favorite, dirt, included.
