1. Can you tell us briefly about yourself?
My name is Serdar, also known as Perfume and Pizza! I am perfume and Pizza enthusiast as my Instagram account would suggest! In real life I am a medical doctor and work in the field of ophthalmology. My love for perfumes was always there but it became a passion since five years. Two years ago, I really started exploring niche perfume and haven't regretted it since!
2. What is your daily beauty/scent routine?
My daily scent routine is spraying on my perfume in the morning after showering. Mostly six to ten sprays. Behind the ears. On my neck, chest, inner side of my elbow, wrist and on the top of my hand. Spraying on the hand is selfish since this isn’t a place on the body where the blood flows close to surface (important for perfume projection). But I just love to sniff it on my hand. After when I get back from work, I spray my perfume for the evening and usually also spraying perfume on my hand and wrist before going to bed.
3. What are your beauty tips?
My beauty tip is... Choose your perfume based on the weather and your clothes. It is even better when both complement each other. Synergy is important!
4. What is your ultimate addiction?
Perfumes are my ultimate addiction!
5. What is a fashion faux pas that you assume?
Spraying overly sweet fragrances when you are in crowded places.
6. Are you a workaholic or a chill out person?
Workaholic or chill out... Hmm I always say that the greatest disappointment in life is that I always thought that waking up in the morning would become easier with time and age... WRONG! But at work İ like to do my job at my best and get the most out of it! I don’t mind going the extra mile and the more complex the problem the more I enjoy solving it!
7. What is your stress relief?
My stress relief... I know I am past 30 but... My PlayStation!
8. Are you a breakfast, lunch or dinner person? What is your ideal meal?
I enjoy breakfast the most! But it’s also the meal I skip the most since I have troubles waking up... But during weekends I always love to have a large breakfast. The perfect breakfast is the Turkish breakfast. Cracked eggs with garlic sausage... Fresh bread, olives, goat cheese, tomato, and more eggs... I love eggs... PS I know that this answer is probably disappointing since my IG account is named perfume and PIZZA!
9. What is your signature scent ingredient?
My signature scent note is a note group actually... Boozy notes! Whiskey, Malt, Brandy etc.
10. What made you fall in love with perfumes?
The thing that made me fall in love with perfumes is the creativity that perfumes have.
11. If you can create your ideal scented product, what would it be?
My ideal perfume would be a boozy scent of course. I would fresh though... A fresh boozy scent! Haven't encountered that yet!
