Shalini began her career as an architect, before her innate longing for texture, mood and colour lead her in to the world of fragrance.

As a child she was surrounded by scents and these memories have been part of her first perfume launched in 2004.

From an early age her mom introduced her to all the flowers in her garden, the way they grew from bud to full bloom and how their scent changed during this progress.

Her favourite is Tuberose. As a small child she sneaked into the garden to inhale them in the night.
