A life long love affair with the power of fragrance has caused VictoriaCator to create her sensual and personal collection of luxury handpoured candles and home fragrances. She has lived all over the worldand worked in Hong King and New York in jobs from fashion and retailto government work.
In London in the 1990s she studied at Christies and developed herown successful interior decorating business, which she runs fromChelsea. A true home maker on every level, she has also written acookery book, 'Flavour of the Month' published in 2008 and warmly received. Everything she loves is brought together in her work and herlove of an evocative world of scents.
Victoria Says; 'I have always had a passion for fragrance. My childhood was peripatetic because of my father's career in the army, but the continuity of smell that was created where ever we lived gave me the security of being 'home'. The scents that greeted me when I walked through the door, my mother's sandalwood burning incense along with the smell of tobacco, the waft of her signature scent, 'Caleche' by Hermes, freshly ground coffee, sweet peas, (her favourite flowers that she grew where ever we lived) and the Trumper's of Jermyn Street hair oil my father wore - all reminded me I was home."
Victoria learned the secret of an individual scent, and has never been interested in associating herself with brands, always seeking a fragrance that didn't exist, always wanting to create something of her own. Her work as an interior decorator and a writer of a successful cookery book has contributed to a constant refining of her interest increating fragrance. A purist to the last, she wears little manufactured scent, just a dash of pepper/sweet raw vanilla and no other fragrance. Her personal favourite smells include, 'baking, marker pens, new shoes in a box, Pepto Bismol, woodsmoke, rain on a garden, white flowers and my memories'.
The interior scents are £45 each and 100ml.
