PS: The artwork on the packaging is really beautiful; how did you select the pieces for the scents?
Pinrose: The artwork on each of the bottles is actually fractal geometry, which has a lot of self-similarity. We love fractals because they represent the intersection of art and science — just like our fragrances. We wanted to highlight unique colors and textures for each fragrance, as well. Our company name, Pinrose, is actually the combination of our two favorite fractals: Penrose tilings and the Pinwheel fractal. Look 'em up . . . they're both beautiful.
PS: Of all the Pinrose scents, which are your personal favorites?
CL: Oh man . . . It's hard to choose just one! I actually love to layer Treehouse Royal ($50) and Sugar Bandit ($50). It gives me a special sexy, confident swagger when I'm going into a big meeting and have no room for mistakes or self-doubt.
ES: I switch them up often based on my mood, the weather, and what I have happening that day. Moonlight Gypsy ($50) has been my Winter go-to. Whenever I need a little energy pick-me-up, I rely on Merry Maker ($50). It is an incredible scent in warm weather because it's both playful and confident, and I get compliments on it every time I wear it.
