Mandy says that when she comes home to begin brewing here in her lab, "every perfume I make has a challenge in it. I could go sit with each bottle and say, 'So that’s what it was with this one." In the case of her newest, Honey Blossom, the challenge was how to keep the linden blossom note from fading. "When I made this, my mind was on wanting to hold on to the linden blossom and showcase it," she says. "So then I chose my ingredients based on that design challenge."
