Mom Essentials: Leilani Bishop
This former model may be a fragrance aficionado at heart, but here are a few other things she and her family cannot live without
As a top fashion model in demand, Leilani Bishop spent many years traveling the globe to exotic regions. Her travels—not to mention her upbringing in Hawaii—have since inspired her to create a new line of single-note fragrances (self-named Leilani Bishop). Each scent pays homage to a flower native to an area that has special meaning to her. Among them is the lilac, which grows native in her current locale, the Hamptons, where she lives with her husband and nine-year-old son, Cassius. Here, Bishop brings to light a few more things she loves.
