Happy 1 Year MAIR || Anniversary Interview

Happy 1 year anniversary to my glamorous sponsor, MAIR Fragrance!  In honor of this celebratory occasion, enjoy this interview with Mair herself, all about the journey of this luxurious eau de parfum brand:

Q: Have you always had a passion for fragrances?
A: Oh yes! I was the one that would spend a good 2 hours at perfume counters sniffing everything. If you would have told me then that I would have my own brand of fine fragrances I definitely would have laughed at the thought. Fragrances were something I just enjoyed to smell and wear. So looking at where I am now, I am living a dream.

Q: Tell us how the MAIR brand began?
A: My brand's beginning is a wild one in that it began with my signature. I was a receptionist a few years ago and happened to be signing a document when a VP by the name of Van Wilson walked in, saw it and said, "Mair, I can see this on a perfume bottle." I couldn't shake it after he said that for the next three years.  Every time I would hear my name I would hear perfume instead. So I just dove into the art of perfume making and never looked back.

Q: What separates MAIR from mainstream fragrance brands?
A: There are two main differences. The craftsmanship of 'Remember When' was made according to the French tradition of perfume making.  The second, we distilled directly from raw ingredients from our gardens in Morocco, Italy, France and Egypt, which is why people that are normally sensitive to mainstream perfumes can easily enjoy Remember When.

Q: As a go-getter entrepreneur, what have you learned since starting your own business, and what advice would you give to others thinking of doing the same?
A: Oh gosh, I'm still learning, but I've learned that you cannot do it by yourself. Who you choose to be apart of your core team is incredibly important. It may be my name up there, but there is a crowd of people you don't see pushing and working equally as hard, making sure all stays well. 

My advice to other entrepreneurs is simple, stay true to your vision. You're going to get a lot of advice and opinions on how you should run your business, or improve your service or product from other people. But the best guide is your instinct. Follow it, listen to it, and you'll be fine.

Q: What is your vision for MAIR for the future?
A: My vision for MAIR is for it be a fashion hub of fragrances and apparel for men and women

Q: We at the Chicago Chic team are beyond honored to partner with a brand who values quality, luxury, and timeless glamour.  In what ways does MAIR embody the "glambassador" mindset?
A: MAIR is definitely a luxury brand, it's all about happily letting loose and indulging in the finer things of life. Everything is so casual these days, yet we adopt the glambassador mindset by visually showing you our interpretation of the glam lifestyle - from what she wears, to what she eats, down to even where she sleeps.

Thank you so much Mair!  One year is only the beginning, and we're excited to watch all of exciting  future plans come into fruition!
