Play • 1 hr 9 min
A Writer's Passion. On this podcast we're talking to publishing + media + professional, Bee Shapiro, longtime beauty columnist for the New York Times, author, and fragrance brand founder. Beauty Expert? An understatement! Bee’s been testing and trying products, and tracking the evolution of beauty for over 10 years. An under-represented category in beauty, she founded clean and sustainable fragrance line Ellis Brooklyn 5 years ago when she was looking for a safer option for luxury scents while pregnant with her daughter Ellis and living in… Brooklyn. Bee studied and practiced law and was a blogger in a former life. We discuss her path to columnist, author, and perfume-maker, the obstacles she's encountered as an entrepreneur, her views on fragrance, her favorites from her line, the great story behind its logo, her book Skin Deep--a fascinating compilation of her greatest columns over the years, her own beauty style, her writing process, sources of inspiration, and tastemaker picks that you can shop here:1.
