Music is a common thread, a universal expression that connects us all. It reaches us with shared experiences and emotions, something we all understand, and it blooms through camaraderie with fellow listeners. Every nation celebrates something unique about its character through music, and within each region and state there are identifiable subcultures and personalities. New Orleans has jazz, Nashville is country, Memphis has the blues, the Pacific Northwest was home to grunge rock, and so on. The music represents the area and the people.
“Well-behaved women seldom make history” -- Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
Inspiration for a new fragrance can come from anywhere, and it’s always fun to delve into the rabbit hole once I’ve come up with a source for a new collection. Our new Miss Behave Collection feels particularly apropos, and reading about the bold and brave women of history is a brilliant reminder that we, too, can fight battles against injustice. Whether it was through a deceptively simple act like challenging social mores, or through - oh, you know -- an actual battle involving swords and samurai, some mighty women have gone before us. We can follow in their footsteps. And we’re going to smell amazing while we do.
