Q: Which scent takes you back to childhood?

My mother’s scent, “Gardenia Passion” by Anique Goutal.

Q: What kind of posters did you have in your room as a teenager?

I was obsessed with Kurt Cobain.

Q: Did you have any childhood heroes?

I loved Jimmy Saville. He did a great show called “Jim’ll fix it,” where kids would go on the show and he would make their dreams come true. It was like real live magic!

Q: What were your “fetishes” while being a teen?

I was very into the psy-trance rave scene, so I wore a lot of really ugly fluo clothes!

Q: Please describe your first kiss.

It was like being thrown into a washing machine!

Q: Which was the first album you bought?

Michael Jackson’s greatest hits.

Q: Do you have any regrets looking back?


Q: Which was your first book?

The “Velveteen Rabbit” by Margery Williams with illustrations by William Nicholson.

Q: What irritated you the most when you were a teenager?

Not being at home. I went to boarding school and it was very frustrating. We were only let out every three weeks, which I hated.

Q: How do you describe your style back then?

Grungy. I wore a lot of floor-length jersey skirts and Nirvana t-shirts.

Q: What kind of memories do you have from your summer holidays?

Long, lazy days in beautiful Europe. I remember walking through markets with my mum in Provence and fishing in Ibiza with my dad. Perfection.

Q: How did you see the world?

As a beautiful place waiting to be explored.

Q: What were your favorite songs from your teenage years?

“Jump for my love” by the Pointer Sisters.

Q: How did you imagine yourself as an adult?

As a mother.

Q: What did you perceive as impossible?

Nothing! Our parents instilled a really strong work ethic in both of us and taught us that anything is possible if you work hard enough.
