Founder of SOPHIA MAE
Choosing my favorite product is truly an impossible task: it's like choosing between your children. I'm equally proud of all our products and launches because they are all products that I personally felt were missing in the industry and we developed them in that way. However, having created my own perfume, Aura eau de parfum, is something that makes me extra proud and has evoked an unparalleled feeling in me. Normally, I experience this kind of feeling during the launch of a new product, but what's fun about Aura eau de parfum is that in everyday life, I come across people wearing the scent, and every time that happens, I experience that same exciting feeling again. Apart from what it does to me as the founder to see people wearing and loving the fragrance, the scent itself also has a significant impact on me every day. I absolutely adore Aura eau de parfum and wear it daily. Sometimes just Aura eau de parfum by itself, but the scent also blends well with other perfumes, and being a true addict, I've tried almost all combinations with my personal perfume collection. Now that the dream of releasing my own perfume has come true, I can't wait to continue the dream of a complete perfume line with SOPHIA MAE!
Co-founder & Managing Director
Since Aura eau de parfum was released on December 1st last year, it has become my most used perfume. I really appreciate beautiful perfumes and have built up quite a collection over the years, but Aura eau de parfum remains my favorite. Sometimes I wear Aura eau de parfum on its own, but oftentimes I layer it with another perfume to switch up the scent and keep it special. During the summertime I love to layer Aura eau de parfum with our new Golden Mirage eau de parfum for a light and fresh scent, in autumn and winter I like to layer Aura eau de parfum with a warmer scent.
I love every product from SOPHIA MAE, but the product that is a must-have in my Beauty Case is definitely Aura eau de parfum. I'm in love with this scent and I can confidently say that I can't live without it anymore. I'm a big fan of various fragrances, both well-known and lesser-known ones, but I've never had a fragrance that I want to wear as often as Aura eau de parfum. When Aura eau de parfum was launched, I immediately bought it, and people around me kept asking: "What are you wearing? You smell amazing!" Aura eau de parfum is a fresh scent, and throughout the day, there is a soft lingering fragrance on the skin that is released whenever you pass by someone. I think it's clear that I can't live without Aura eau de parfum anymore. If you're thinking about ordering one for yourself, I recommend getting the 100ml size right away because the 50ml is not enough: been there, done that!
Product Development Manager
My favorite summer product is the Rosa Scented Candle. I'm crazy about scents in the house. When you walk down the hallway of my apartment building, the scent from my home greets you right away. I use scented candles all year round, even on hot summer days. I always switch up winter and summer fragrances for my perfumes, but I've also incorporated this concept into my home by using different scented candles throughout the seasons. I highly recommend doing this to everyone I meet. Rosa is by far my favorite summer candle. Not only because the scent of flowers reminds me of spring and summer but also because it adds a touch of sultriness similar to warm summer nights.
Product Development Coordinator
Choosing among all SOPHIA MAE products is really difficult, but my current favorite product is Eos Laundry Perfume. For me, there's nothing better than getting into bed at night with sheets that are freshly washed. This laundry perfume allows me to experience this feeling every day without having to wash my sheets daily, as the scent lingers on all of your fabrics for days. I enjoy the scent so much that I've already used Eos Laundry Perfume on all my clothes, pillows, and blankets. Because of this, the whole house smells amazing.
My favorite product for summer is Eos Laundry Perfume because it gives my clothes and bedding a delightful scent that lingers for a long time. It adds that extra touch of luxury when I get into bed, especially with my bedding. This is a scent I never knew I needed until I tried it, and now I absolutely can not live without it.
My favorite product for summer is the Two-Sided Pillowcase. The Tencel side of the pillowcase provides a refreshing sensation during warm summer nights, while sleeping on the silk side of the pillowcase makes my hair softer and reduces split ends. An absolute summer must-have if you ask me.
My favorite product is the Goddess Glow. It gives you an all-year vacay glow by day and a dewy highlighted look by night. It's literally made to make you shine throughout the year, what more could you want? The scent is also absolutely delightful, and a little goes a long way!
My favorite product is something I use every day: the Eternal Balm. The scent is delightful, it provides perfect care for my lips during these warm and dry summer days, gives a subtle shine, and is super convenient to carry everywhere. Also, here's a tip for anyone suffering from hay fever: I lightly apply the Eternal Balm around my nose to keep the pollen away.
As a true beauty and skincare addict, I have to go with the SOPHIA MAE Beauty Case. After much consideration, it's my favorite at the moment because, honestly, I can't choose just one. This beautiful Beauty Case is spacious and sturdy enough to hold all my SOPHIA MAE favorites, so I can take them with me on all my trips. Additionally, the Beauty Case is a showstopper in my bathroom and adds a touch of luxury to any hotel room. I can't live without it!
The Majestic Mist is without a doubt my favorite summer product. Thanks to the Majestic Mist, I've finally stopped washing my hair every day because I can promise you that this is the solution you've been looking for. In addition to being a dry shampoo, it also gives my hair a tremendous volume boost. Since I use it on workdays and for nights out, the Majestic Mist Mini has become an essential in my bag. I would recommend this to absolutely everyone.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am the biggest beauty freak. Because of that, I'm a big fan of the Flawless Glow Bundle. With the incredible glow that the Goddess Glow gives me, I'm ready to shine at all the events I attend this summer. And thanks to one of our newest additions, the Kabuki Brush, my hands stay clean so I can confidently enjoy my radiant skin. This combination is truly what dreams are made of and my ultimate summer favorite!
I can hardly choose, but I have to go with the Aphrodite Scented Candle. This candle gives me a certain nostalgic feeling since it was one of the first products SOPHIA MAE started with. I love its fragrance in all seasons, and the design of the packaging, with my weakness for animal prints and lions, remains one of my favorites!
Management Assistant & PA
The Artemis and Aphrodite Roomsprays are essential for me. They are an easy way to ensure that your home or car always smells amazing. As soon as I come home, I spray them throughout the house, and it instantly makes me feel happy and refreshed. This product can be used all year round, and anyone who visits your home will immediately notice the extra touch of having one of these delightful scents enveloping your space.
