New podcast out: Oud with Strangelove NYC

Season 2, Episode 20: Interview with Elizabeth Gaynes from Strangelove Perfumes

Elizabeth Gaynes, founder of Strangelove NYC, works with Helena Christensen (the creative director) and perfumer, Christophe Laudamiel to bring to life oud-centric fragrances. These scents are big, bold and not for the faint hearted, but they manage to demonstrate a breadth and depth to the oud universe.

Before starting the brand, Elizabeth learned about sustainable farming practices, and brought this knowledge to bear when creating and developing her own line in which potent ouds are married with other, luxurious ingredients like oris butter, for example. We hear the story of how Elizabeth built the brand, how she met supermodel Helena Christensen and superstar perfumer Christophe Laudamiel, and how the trio brought the vision to life.
