The next person to tell us about her life in fragrance is the beautiful face of Wonderbra SA, Natasha Barnard.
I met Tash when we went to Zambia together a few years ago to shoot Rooi Rose’s summer supplement. I’ve been following her career with pride ever since. And sorry, ladies, I know you want to find fault with somebody so gorgeous, but she’s a sweet heart, and a real girls’ girl.
Self-confessed fragrance addict, 24 year old Tash has been modeling for 5 and a half years. Originally from Witbank, but based in New York at the moment, she is the current face of Wonderbra South Africa and also shot the South African Sports Illustrated Swimwear 2012 Issue.

Tommy Girl by Tommy Hilfiger
What is your favourite everyday fragrance? Why?
I love Amor Amor by Cacharel. It’s fresh and it has a sweet smell that I adore.
What is your special occasion fragrance? Why?
Lady Million by Paco Rabanne. The smell is absolutely irresistible and it makes me feel like a million dollars.
Have you found your signature scent? What makes it so special to you?
The One by Dolce & Gabbana. When I wear the perfume it makes me feel very sexy- it’s like it was made for my skin.
What is your best fragrance memory?
I remember as a teenager I used to go out with my friends and I would wear Intense by Hugo Boss. I always got compliments from the boys about the smell.
Is there a fragrance that you love the smell of, but it just smells horrid on your skin?
Red Door by Elizabeth Arden. It smells amazing on my mother, but the scent is a bit too strong on me.
