As the founder of home fragrance brand Cochine, Kate Crofton-Atkins knows a thing or two about balance, and the interiors of her home on The Peak is as elegant and sophisticated as you would expect.

There isn’t much that fazes Kate Crofton-Atkins. Serene, understated and softly spoken, she’s equally unruffled comforting her crying child, or managing a press interview with British Vogue (she’s literally just flown back to Hong Kong from the UK).

So when you learn she arrived in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in 2006 with next to no experience in the fragrance market, and calmly set about establishing a luxury brand that has gone from strength to strength, you simply nod your head.

Today, her elegant Indochine label, Cochine, is quietly poised on the brink of international success: as well as multiple outlets in Asia, the delicately scented candles, diffusers and body lotions are now stocked in major stores in London and New York.

The burgeoning business supports a staff of ten and requires a hectic international schedule, but Kate is never anything but calm and composed.

So how does she do it?
