Handmade fragrances from Brooklyn, NY.

Chau is a full-time school high school teacher, and one of the owners and a buyer at Myth + Symbol in Houston, TX. We met last year when she came to the Dobbin Mews studio to scout products for her new shop. She’s unbelievably sweet and after I once complimented a beaded necklace, she made me one! Complete with complicated beaded triangles and all. Now when she comes to NYC for buying trips we carve out a little time for non-business – like brunch at Diner. 

Name: Chau Nguyen

Occupation: Art Teacher and Buyer/Partner at Myth + Symbol

Where do you currently reside?: Houston, TX

Favorite MCMC fragrance: LOVE, GARDEN, and HUNTER. And sometimes I’ll throw BJ’s Dude No. 1 Beard Oil into the mix.

When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: I would rub on the samples from the magazine ads when I was younger. Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflower was probably on my Christmas wishlist, but the first one I bought was in college – Micheal by Micheal Kors.

What’s in your refrigerator right now?: Peaches, ice cream, tofu, apples, film…

Three words that describe you: Curious, nostalgic, hypochondriac
