HOW WE GOT STARTED
at a crossroads...
Somewhere in the middle of 2018, I found myself in a state of flux and transition in my career. I had been successful driving operational efficiencies for leading international organisations but then I realised, I wanted to do something else.
One morning while visiting my 93 year old grandmother, I started to explain how distraught I was about my career prospects and that I just didn't know how to move forward. My grandmother (Ma) advised me to forget going back to school and to try doing something with my hands. She reminded me "I didn't raise you with one talent" and added in local Barbadian parlance "sometimes yuh gotta bend yuh knees to jump child"-- loose translation: sometimes life will require you to stoop low in preparation for push off to higher things.
Native Caribbean was born 6 months later. Ma died three months before the store opening on what would have been her 94th birthday. To honour her memory, all Native Caribbean fragrances are named after the things I did with Ma while growing up with her. I hope they bring you peace, joy and calm. Enjoy!
