Handmade fragrances from Brooklyn, NY.

whitneybickers10-1Whitney opened the boutique Myrtle in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles in 2011 and has been an avid supporter of MCMC ever since. With a focuses on female designers, the shop carries brands like Ermie, Mary Meyer and Samantha Pleet. I’m hoping 2013 is the year I get to visit LA and if so, Myrtle is on my list!

Name: Whitney Bickers

Occupation: Shop Owner, Myrtle

Hometown: Westerville, OH

Where do you currently reside?: Los Angeles, CA

Favorite MCMC fragrance: On myself I like HUNTER, but in the air, I love LOVE! I frequently add a drop or two to the water when I’m steaming clothes here at the shop.

When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: The first fragrance I remember having was a wax perfume that came in a plastic locket with a Barbie doll; I loved it and always wanted something like it. I finally tracked down a grown-up version in Narciso Rodriguez’s For Her, which really makes me laugh. The first perfume I ever bought for myself was Red Jeans at the Versace store in Venice, Italy. I was in high school and I felt SO sophisticated!

If you were a plant, what would you be?: I am one of three girls and when I was a kid, we had three trees in the front yard. The Bradford Pear was “mine” and that’s probably fitting because the fruit is tiny.

What’s in your refrigerator right now?: Butter and eggs (I love to bake) and leftover pizza (bf’s fave)

Three words that describe you: Night-owl, clothes-horse, worry-wart
