About me !

Greetings all you Poppy Plum Viewers! I would like to welcome you to this site! 🙂

I have decided to create this website to cater for all those beauty and perfume lovers who share the same passion that I do. I have worked in this field for over 13 years and still currently do and must say that I love every single thing about it. My experience varies from working on the shop floor at two very renowned worldwide cosmetic stores for 8 years then moving to a salon which I nowadays manage. I feel that I have learned way too much to leave it go to waste and that is exactly why I decided to start out this website! I would love to create a Poppy Plum community where we can all share our love, passion, and ideas for the same products!

Many people ask me why I’ve been the industry for so long and if I ever intend on changing. I cannot imagine working in a different industry. I will never forget the feeling I got when selling my first perfume. The fragrance store I worked for was launching the Calvin Klein Euphoria for ladies exactly just in time for Valentines Day! The fragrance store I worked for offered an intense 3-month training course therefore this was my first time ready to shine and prove myself! This very attractive young man came to buy his girlfriend a present and asked me for my recommendation. After a quick 5 minute consultation, I understood that he was after a fragrance that totally described his lover-he wanted to match a fragrance with her character, style, and lifestyle. A couple of days after this kind gentlemen came back to our outlet to thank me and explained to me that we choose the right fragrance and couldn’t have gone for a better choice. I am sure everyone in the industry can understand that choosing a fragrance is exactly like a game, the trick is to examine a fragrance and all it’s components while characterizing it in your head. I like associating the components of a fragrance to people I know or create. You can sometimes fall in love with one single ingredient within the composition of the fragrance (which has happened to me a countless amount of times) or else the generic fragrance itself. The most extraordinary feeling about perfume is that it can find it’s way to our heart or our brain and thus has the capability of triggering emotions both physically and emotionally after one single sniff. I find that effect completely fascinating and magical!

After 13 years working in this industry – I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and – the best bit, I can also share discounts on all of these fragrances and many more.
