Sourcing natural fragrances is serious business, and Mandy has never spent less than $3,000 a pound on a perfume's ingredients. (For comparison, many fragrances cost about $20 a pound.) She also says that for every ingredient, "I spend hours and hours every week looking. I like to find just the right rose, just the right ginger; I feel like I’m on my very own modern-day spice route." Recently, she's sourced ingredients from as far afield as organic farms in Bulgaria.
