If you’ve ever felt the need to remind yourself that fashion is a way of life, or that you are part of something bigger than yourself, then you’ve undoubtedly encountered the French designer and art historian Véionique Donnella.
Donnella is perhaps best known for her work in the realm of perfumes, a discipline that combines the arts and sciences.
Her signature work is the Vérières d’Occasion perfume, which is currently being worn by actress Nicole Kidman in her film, Nicole Kidmen.
Her work also includes the perfume du temps, which has become an iconic scent for women in France.
Like many of the world’s leading perfume experts, Donnellan has spent the last several years researching and studying her work, which she has called the “French Renaissance.”
While some of her work has received praise, she has also been attacked for using “black-market” ingredients that may be detrimental to health.
In a recent article for La Vie en Rose, the Paris-based French magazine, Donnela was asked about her work and how it has changed over the years.
The question of perfumery and the black market permeated the discussion between the two of us.
In this interview, we discuss some of the things we learned, and how we both became better perfumers and better people in general.
Véionix, what do you make of perfuming in today’s world?
When I first started, I used to get a lot of compliments, I got lots of compliments from my friends, even my family, I was like, “Wow, this is amazing!
This is so beautiful.”
And I always used to say to them, “Don’t worry, I am just doing this because I love it.”
It’s very important that people respect that.
I do think that, in today we have so many people who have different opinions about perfumes.
And there are different opinions in this field, so I think it’s important that everyone has a fair voice.
In the end, the best way to do that is to be respectful.
What I think is important is to do something that is very personal and very unique, so people can be inspired by it.
When I was younger, I always thought that if I was a good woman, I would want to have a beautiful perfume.
I was never really sure, but when I was young, I didn’t have a lot to choose from.
And so I was always asking myself, “Am I good enough?”
So I thought that I should get a perfume, I should make a perfume.
And I think that my own work, as a woman, in particular, I’ve always felt that I can do that, that I’m good enough to be able to make perfume.
What really changed my mind was when I started to make my own perfume.
Because my friends were saying, “You should be making perfume.
You should be a perfume artist.”
I felt that this was something that I had to do, because I thought I was good enough.
But then I started making perfumes and I started getting so many compliments, and it really opened my eyes to other things.
Because now, when I look at what people are saying, I realize that I’ve done something very important, and I’m a better person for it.
You have to be the best, you have to make it beautiful.
So, it’s not only perfumes that have changed, but also, perfumes are a way for people to express themselves.
Why is this important?
In the past, I felt a lot that I could not be as good as everyone else, because there were some people that I knew that could make me really good, but I was not.
And now, the problem is that there are people who can make you better.
And then it’s so important that we express ourselves in a way that people feel that we are worthy of.
It’s not about what people want to hear, it is about our ability to express ourselves.
When people say that you can’t make perfumes because it’s black market, I think this is a huge misunderstanding.
I have made my own perfumes many times, and people always say, “But it’s just a perfume.”
They think, “Oh, you just made your own.”
But no, you didn’t.
You just made the same perfume that someone else made, because it was a little bit different.
So, I make my perfumes for myself, because they are my personal experiences, because you have the right to express yourself, but not the right for others to do it for you.VÉIONIX: What do you think of the term “Black Market”?
It’s very funny because I think there is this misconception about the word black market.
It has a very negative con
