In my dream beauty world, everyone would approach making a fragrance like perfumer Neil Morris. Scents are personal; they should be special and evoke fond memories. Scents from Morris’s signature collection are all inspired by his personal experiences. One hot and hazy August day, Morris was touched by a cool breeze that kissed his neck. He interpreted the sensation into one of my favorite fragrances called Zephyr. It’s a divine mix of Tangerine, Papaya, Honeysuckle, and Casablanca Lily that is so heavenly, you’re instantly transported to that summer day and can almost feel Morris’s enthusiasm when creating it. It’s everything a fragrance should be. Too bad more brands aren’t as serious, passionate, and creative about scents as Morris.
