Linda Landenberg: Telling A Story Through Smell
What does it look like when you discover a love of scents, but you lose part of your sense of smell?
This is what happened to Linda Landenberg. Linda, who has alopecia, lost not only her hair but, in fact, part of her ability to smell. While her hair has not grown back, her sense of smell returned. Because she enjoyed scents since childhood, she decided to continue developing her senses. After years of experience working in the cosmetics industry, studying chemistry in Sweden and the perfume trade in Grasse, France, Linda created her own brand of perfumes – and also decided to throw away her wig.
According to Linda, fragrance is more than a perfume that you apply before you leave the house. For Linda, from an early age, she felt a certain harmony when surrounded by the smells found in nature. It’s thanks to her determination and passion that Linda's niche, natural perfumes were born.
A playful, light combination of peach and suede tones, with blue freesia, white peach, and sandalwood. The result is a floral and fruity scent grounded by a milky base of sandalwood. The emphasis on the soft skin of the fruit is underlined by light, gray suede.
This perfume won the prestigious Daisy Beauty Award in 2018. It has a slightly autumnal mood, which is enhanced by French lavender in combination with black pepper, chocolate, patchouli, milky tones, balsamic fir, cardamom, sage, cedar, and cumin. In short, an all-encompassing perfume.
The most classic of Linda's perfumes is made from a love for the queen of flowers: the rose. The perfume uses three kinds of roses, black currant, carnation, and sandalwood. There are hundreds of roses and it's so hard to choose one, so Linda created a fragrant cloud of roses so she wouldn’t have to choose.
Is it at all possible to resist the smell named for the French word for kisses? This seductive mixture of lemon, ginger, jasmine, beeswax, and amber is made special by an almost invisible pinch of chocolate. This one is for floral fragrance lovers.
It seems that not only in France are remarkable scents created from the hands of artisans. Like a shining, rising star in the world of perfumes, Linda Landenberg tells a story through smells, with many unique fragrances to choose from.
