Handmade fragrances from Brooklyn, NY.

Helen has a studio across the hall from me at the Dobbin Mews in Greenpoint. A textile designer, I often wander into her space to witness her splashing paint onto canvases, creating amazing florals and animal prints out of thin air. Or, she’ll come over and ask Jennifer and I which color combo is best – the infinite possibilities boggles the mind. My favorite thing about Helen though, is how she pronounces “taco” with her British accent – “tacko.”

Name: Helen Dealtry

OccupationPrinted textile designer

Hometown: London, England

Where do you currently reside?: Brooklyn, NY

Favorite MCMC fragrance: AMARA

When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: At around age 7 I discovered my grandmothers ‘Lily of the Valley’ by Yardley, in her bathroom cabinet. I still love it, but mix it with something earthier.

If you were a plant, what would you be?: Crocus

What’s in your refrigerator right now?: Habanero peppers, Mo’s crickets and smoked trout

Three words that describe you: British, creative, nostagic
