- Linda Rodin
- New York City
Curious by nature, Linda Rodin was once an insatiable sampler of the latest and greatest beauty products. “As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that not that many things work for me,” the veteran fashion stylist tells us. “So I’ve been able to scale back and narrow it down.” It’s a feat she accomplished by creating Rodin Olio Lusso (Italian for “luxury oil”), a tightly edited range of multi-tasking elixirs.
Rodin whipped up the first batches of her cult favorite face oil in her New York apartment kitchen, combining 11 favorite essential oils derived from flowers and other botanicals, and gave it away in little bottles to makeup artists, models, and celebrity clients, who soon spread the word about its skin-enhancing properties and fresh scent—a jasmine and neroli blend that Rodin describe as “intoxicating.”
