Something I always want to be asked in questionnaires like this is… what is my measure of success?
It might sound kind of strange, but to me the greatest worldly success would be to have a private driver. On a more spiritual note, success is to me is to have made an impact on the art form. I strive to create great perfumes; to truly make works of art. If in the end my work has spoken to others (impacted the audience) and to have even expanded the art form, I will feel as though I have succeeded.
I can totally relate to Dawns answers, comfort, chocolate and baby boys – those things dominate my life too.
The line is huge and diverse: so have you explored it yet? What is your favorite?
