An innovative brand that serves as a treat for both skin and senses, Fresh  has fast become one of our favourites when it comes to unique beauty products to help boost our at-home top to toe pampering artilleries.

Its collections never fail to delight and surprise us, using ingredients as diverse as damask rose, soy, black tea and Umbrian clay to meet a multitude of face and body needs. At the helm is Lev Glazman, Fresh’s co-founder and Head of Research - the ‘nose’ behind the brand who plays a pivotal part in sourcing raw ingredients from around the world for the brand’s latest ranges. With a love of skincare and the relationships he builds with artisans around the world, we caught up with Lev to gain a glimpse into the inner workings of his working day and to see what the fragrance expert does to stay motivated, organised and inspired.
