Leilani Bishop, Fragrance Designer and Supermodel

the 10
things I want for fall

The French call it sillage: It's when someones leaves a fragrance in their wake, like the trail a ship leaves in the water. LEILANI BISHOP, founder and designer of recently launched Leilani Bishop Fragrances looks for a more intimate connection. "I wanted to recreate that experience of giving a woman a hug and coming away with the subtle fragrance that is in her hair." Leilani, whose name "flowers from heaven," in Hawaiian, is as enviably beautiful as her name. The supermodel grew up on Kauai and traveled the world with her parents (antique collectors), before turning her attention to perfume. Each exotic oil—in pikake, lilac, and orange blossom—is encased in an opaline glass casing, that's almost too pretty to use. Meanwhile, here are

the 10 things that Leilani Bishop loves for fall.

  • 1

    Isabel Marant Sweater

    I love both Isabel Marant and stripes. Her sweaters are super cozy while still having a little edge, which is my "thing"—comfort while looking sharp!

    Native Union Headset

    I'm a sucker for anything that brings me back to the old way of doing things. Talking on an actual phone somehow soothes me and makes me more relaxed—less like I'm racing into the next century and more like the 13-year-old that spent hours on the phone.

    Giles & Brother Railroad Spike Bracelet

    I love this skinny railroad spike bangle and I wear it with everything. It's sleek, edgy, and classy.

    Leilani Bishop Lilac Fragrance

    It might not be in the best taste to put my lilac oil on the list, but I am obsessed with it! It's the perfect get up and go product. I apply it before meetings for the right amount of scent to capture attention but not overwhelm those around me.

    Now Discover Your Strengths

    I'm always looking for ways to grow and expand. Now that I play the role of "boss" I want to capitalize on my personal strengths as well as the strengths of those I employ.

    Proenza Schouler Laceup Ankle Boots

    I love the feeling of wearing heels. In the winter especially, a little height gives me that little extra "something" to get through my day—plus they're super comfy.

    Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex

    I love this replenishing nutrient from Tata Harper: It's like magic. I stash it in my bag and use it on the go. It's perfect for winter when I'm feeling a bit dry—a quick application and I feel instantly refreshed. And it smells great!

    Marie Forleo's Rich Hot and Happy Live

    Marie is the ultimate girl's gal, there to support any and every dream you have. I have done a couple of her courses and LOVE everything that she has to say. Her advice has been essential to my growth as a woman and an entrepreneur.

    Frederic Malle Gardenia Candle

    Growing up in Hawaii has made me quite a flower snob, especially when it comes to scents. In my opinion there has not been one gardenia scent that has recreated the gardenia. Until...... the gardenia candle by Frederic Malle. I'm not sure how he did it, but it is near perfect. I can close my eyes and dream of the tropics.

    Bose Headphones

    I live for music, and working on the go, I have both pairs of Bose headsets, the noise canceling and the mobile... I can listen to music, Marie Forleo business updates, and work on the computer in any environment.
