Editor, DJ and model Emily Oberg tells Make it last about the signature scent of her adult self.
21-year old Emily Oberg is originally from Vancouver, but she moved to New York in 2014 to work as an editorial producer at Complex Magazine, and to DJ and model. Her sporty and minimalistic style, with lots of 90s influences, has attracted a big following on Instagram. Her love of classic kicks and low-key style has resulted into a full-fledged brand, Sporty & Rich, which is a way of describing her own aesthetic. Make it last asks Emily to share her Eternal Flame – something she’ll treasure forever.
“I found this perfume in a small shop in my neighborhood of Williamsburg, its called Bois de Balincourt by Maison Louis Marie. I had always loved the smell of Le Labo’s Santal 33, I swear it’s what every well-dressed guy in New York wears. This one has such a similar scent, but it’s unisex so it’s softer and more feminine. Before this, I hadn’t changed my perfume since I was 16-years-old. I wore Miss Dior Cherie forever! I still love it but but this feels more grown-up and womanly. It’s a a blend of Sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver, nutmeg, cinnamon and amber wood. I also love that it’s a perfume oil, I find that oils last longer throughout the day, so I don’t need to reapply.
This is special to me because it is the signature scent of my adult self. Everyone always compliments me on it and asks where it’s from. It’s also such a unique smell for a girl, I love that. It’s a little bit manly, which fits my personal style perfectly.”
