1- Tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a nature-loving woman that likes honest people and products. I like the world to be treated well and want people to be kind.
2- How did you get into Aromatherapy & Essences?
It all started when my boyfriend brought me a manuscript about aromatherapy and some essential oils. He was opening a new club and wanted me to use the oils to create scents for the parties. This was the early 90s and this was a completely new experience, mixing scents and sounds and video, but it was a great success. During my time there, I started working with an “Aromatherapy” company to learn more about aromatherapy. The club became my testing ground to try out new scents and perfect the craft.
3 — What is the story behind Aromalogic?
After making every product made to measure in the Scent Agency House of Hulsman I thought it is time to create a skincare cosmetic line for girls and boys, men and women from the age of 15 to 100 years. Just a real, nature-friendly, ecological, plant power cosmetic line. No plastics or anything else but pure plants with essential oils.
4 — What is your favorite Aromalogic product?
Stay Young, Die Pretty is my favorite but I love every product and use them all.
5 — Do you have a favorite spot in Amsterdam?
I love sitting at the Indian House to have a drink or sitting at L’Europe by the water to have a drink and some bitterballen. My favorite spot is The Orangery in the Botanical Garden.
6 — What does shopping local mean to you?
I like to support entrepreneurs, if you make something good and want to do something nice, I am a supporter.
7 — What is the best book you’ve read?
I have three books that I always recommend:
- Quantum Healing by Deepak Chopra
- The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parenting by Deepak Chopra
- The Witches of Karres by James Schmitz
8 — What was the most embarrassing fashion trend that you were part of?
Roots sneakers. I had a pair of all-white Roots sneakers, these were so popular back in the days but looking back I think to myself “how did I like this shoe!”
