This week we’re spending 60 seconds with Ruth’s daughter, Claire.
What is your role in the company?
I basically take care of everything behind the scenes to get our perfumes into our customer’s hands. Whether its logistics, finance, sales, or even the dreaded accounting, it means no day is the same!
Where is the best place you’ve travelled to and why?
Thailand, because of the incredible food, sights and people.
What 3 traits describe you?
Loyal, thoughtful, stubborn.
What is your favourite thing about being a perfumer/working in perfume?
I love that we get to express so many different feelings, emotions and creative ideas through scent. And I really like working with my mum and brother!
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
My husband, Pim. He is the most positive person I know, so if I’m ever wavering about something, I try to approach it like he would.
If you could visit anywhere in the world where would it be?
I don’t know if I can pick one place because there is still so much I want to see! I’d love to go to Vietnam, for the history, culture and some nice weather.
What would you be if you weren’t working in perfume?
Something to do with houses… either designing them, building them, or working in interiors. My Pinterest is full of perfume inspo and houses.
