  • Perfume, Power, and God

    My first connection to smell was the smell of holy water and sacrament, the second was the smell of my mother’s Buddhist temple.

    Kendall Jenner and Taylor Swift have been pushing the plush fabric in a major way this summer — and I, for one, am here for it. When I first moved to New York City 11 years ago, it wasn’t the promise of endless West Village brunches, Magnolia Bakery cupcakes, or nights out in the Meatpacking…
