Kaia Gerber applies her perfume by spraying it on a mirror & using her finger

Kaia Gerber has a cute little interview in British Vogue. It’s pretty superficial, but I love those kinds of mundane interviews about what people do before they go to bed, what kind of conditioner they use and how they apply perfume. That last one should be asked of every woman, because I bet the answers would vary WIDELY. Back in the day, I used to spray or apply perfume directly to my pulse points (wrists and neck). I went through a phase where I would spray perfume on my hair. Nowadays, I do the walking through the cloud of perfume thing – I spray into the air and walk through it. Kaia has a perfume-application method I’ve never even heard of though. Note: the main purpose of this interview is for Kaia to chat about becoming the fact of Marc Jacobs’ fragrance Daisy. That’s why there’s so much perfume-talk. Some highlights from this Vogue interview:

How she starts her day: “I feel like quarantine has made my morning routine a lot longer – I take a lot of time for myself and I don’t rush. I like to write in the mornings and usually write a few pages. I like to meditate and say a prayer. I think mindful moments like that have really become a huge part of my morning routine.

The last thing she does before bed: “Drink water, which is probably a terrible idea thinking about it because I always wake up in the middle of the night… now I understand why! I always forget to drink water in the day, so I find myself chugging more at night.

Her wellness secrets: “I am very into wellness and have gotten much more into it over the last year – it’s something that I will now carry with me into everyday life. I’m very into crystals – I have like a million of them all over my bedroom – and I ‘charge’ them out in the moonlight, especially during a full moon. I’m a weirdo like that. I’m also very into breathing – I do 4-7-8 breathing [breathe in for four counts, hold for seven and then breathe out for eight], which I think is incredible, and really calms me down. And then guided meditations. I think anything that works for you is incredible – I’m someone who likes to try everything.

On Marc Jacobs’s Daisy fragrance: “I love it so much! I’ve been working with [the brand] so long, and I feel like we’ve created this wonderful family. I don’t know if this is a thing that a lot of people do, but I like to spray the fragrance onto a mirror first and that way I can use my finger to control where it goes and how much I want to apply – I place it in different areas [depending on my mood]. What I like about the new Daisy Eau So Intense is that it stays put all day. You don’t need a lot.

Pandemic haircare: “It’s funny because it’s only been in the last six months that I decided to mess with my hair so much. Finally, we’re back to – sort of – normal. My favourite was pink, because [going pink] was a pipe dream that I always had. I knew as a brunette I could never have pink hair without bleaching it, [so when I did bleach it] that was my excuse to have pink hair for a little bit. I definitely appreciate my natural hair colour and texture a lot more than I did before. I’m a big believer in a good conditioner, especially because I damaged my hair so much from bleaching it. I use this shea butter conditioner that is so good and was recommended to me by a hairstylist. I always trust their opinion more than anyone else’s, because they’re the ones that deal with my hair. It’s really helped with the damage [from bleach].

I told you it was a weird perfume application! I’ve never heard of anyone spraying perfume on a mirror and then rubbing their finger on the mirror. What a strange way to apply perfume! I wonder what her mom does – I bet Cindy sprays and then walks through it, don’t you? Hell, she might even apply it directly to her pulse points!

As for her haircare… for the longest time – years, really – I never used a dedicated conditioner. I liked a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner because with my fine/oily hair, I didn’t think I needed anything more than that. But in recent years, I’ve become a big convert to dedicated conditioners. My hair texture has changed a lot over the years too, so a good conditioner just makes everything more manageable. As for the crystals… again, a lot of people are getting WAY into crystals these days, right? Look at me, I’m a trendspotter.
