The Pro: Lisa Hoffman, founder of Lisa Hoffman Beauty
The Product: “For me, perfume is an incredibly evocative experience. The scent of Chanel No. 5 always brings back memories of my grandmother. It smells like her, and I loved her so much. Every time I went to her house, I would play with the bottle—petrified that I would break it!—and spray it all over. Of course, I thought I was in a secret scent world, where I was the only one who could smell it, but everyone knew. (I suppose I overdid it a bit.) Even now, I think playing with that bottle, and its iconic silhouette, was hugely influential on my decision to start my own fragrance line. Both my grandmother and my mother were effortlessly stylish, and it was their attention to detail that pulled their look together. I think, unconsciously, that one of the inspirations for my line came from the fact that they never left the house without perfume and a touch of jewelry.”
