Exploring W Beauty Director Jane Larkworthy’s office is like getting a glimpse into the future: It’s filled with the new products that everyone will be talking about months from now. And to find it, a visitor only need follow her nose. Right about now the mixture of candles, room sprays and her signature sent of Le Labo Santal 33 is wafting through the W hallways. “I would compare the aroma to a pasta puttanesca—which basically translates to ‘whore’s style pasta,’” she says of the heady mix. “It is a little bit of everything, and the fun part is, it changes every day.”
Five Questions for Jane:
