Child Perfume

Back in January at the Bendel’s Beauty Breakfast in New York, we met Susan, the creator of Child Perfume.

Before we had a chance to sniff her fragrance, we were mesmerized by the handwritten detail in her logbooks. She had brought the books along to show attendees the personalized care that goes into each vial of Child Perfume—the delicate mix of ingredients, the careful rotation and fermentation (does perfume ferment?!) of each batch. We were awestruck.

The scent itself is a heavy Hawaiian jasmine (Pikake) with a bit of musk. It’s a strong floral that could be too much for some noses, but, like many celebrities and beauty editors alike, we’re in love. The scent is uncomplicated in that it doesn’t change much after the dry down—and it stays on forever.

  • I love Child and will always have a bottle on my dresser. The Body Creme has been getting lots of use.

  • The word she has used in explaining a few details and questions about the perfume, Child—was maturation,
    not fermentation, they do sound somewhat alike.
    No,perfume does not ferment. It does mature.
