Meet The Staff: Jovan

Posted on September 15, 2014 by Emily Villanueva
This week we're starting a new blog feature called "Meet The Staff" where we introduce a member of the Tijon team. Like a well-balanced fragrance, each person complements our team as a whole. Get to know the notes behind the symphony. 

Introducing... Jovan Van Drielle, co-owner of Tijon La Jolla


Name: Jovan Van Drielle


Hometown: South Plainfield, NJ


Favorite Tijon Fragrance: Barnardo Smoke, because it was a collaboration with my partner. He mixed many different oils and then I added one - Tobacco oil - to make it my own.


Favorite oil: Lily of the Valley. Earliest scent memory!


When did you first start wearing perfume? What fragrance was it?: Age 14. Muguet des Bois by Coty.


What is your earliest scent memory?: Patchouli oil is what comes to mind, even though I never wear it, everyone around me did! It reminds me of my hippie days: peace, love and being "groovy."


Three words that describe me: Adventurous, Creative, Happy


What do you love most about working at Tijon?: Bringing people together to experience their scent memory "eureka" moment!
