I love the smell of the beach because I used to spend a lot of time on the beach with my parents. I'm a city girl. I live in the middle of the city. I can't escape it so I need that city energy. Coffee. Obsessed with coffee smell. I'm very loyal. I'm very picky with smell but when I fall in love with one, I'm loyal to it for years. If there's a museum of old paintings I can definitely smell something musky, something romantic. So I just spray it in the air and I walk through it. A bit of grass, rainbow, unicorns…everything. But since it's a dream I'm sure it will turn out beautiful. I'm Cologne Royal.
