What inspired you to call your new perfume 'Mad Love’?
Mad Love is an extension of the mad hatter/mad magician theme we came up with two years ago. I always put my fragrance ideas together in pairs like Purr and Meow, and Killer Queen and Royal Revolution. I wanted to go from the strength of Mad Potion to the sweetness of Mad Love.

How do you feel when you wear it?
Mad Love is a very sweet, edible fragrance. It feels bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to flirt!

What’s your favourite fragrance note for fancy occasions and why?
I love vanillas. They’re classic, and powerfully feminine.

The new beauty trend you’re keen to test-drive?
Since I’ve been through every colour of the rainbow, I wanted to figure out something different to do with my hair so I tried these things called Rust Locks. Back in the day, your hair was meant to be very powerful. These hair wraps bring back that idea. They’re extensions made with intention. Check them out HERE.

What are three beauty products you use every single day?
Proactiv cleanser, Hempz lotion and Malin Goetz deodorant.

Your go-to lipstick shade?
‘Kitty Purry’ from my new lipstick line with CoverGirl. It can be a day or a night look.

What does your evening skincare routine look like?
One of my biggest skincare secrets is to never go to sleep with make-up on. I remove it with Shu Uemura oil and a warm washcloth. It leaves a moisturising residue, which is perfect for overnight.

What is your favourite pampering activity to do on a night in?
My favourite pampering activity is a deep-tissue massage followed by a Himalayan salt bath. None of that “petting like” massage. I want those knots excavated!

Your best piece of beauty advice for teens today?
Mental health is as important as keeping your physical health in shape.
