How Jen Meyer Stays Zen

The jeweler turned perfumer shares her favorite California rituals



Where do you live?
Los Angeles, born and raised.

Where do you feel most zen?
I love being home with my kids, my friends, and people I love. That gives me the most peace.

Favorite hike?
The coolest hike I’ve ever done was Machu Picchu with Erin Foster. But if someone came to L.A., I would take them for a walk on the beach.

Favorite beach?
Malibu! It’s where I grew up. Hawaii is a close second.

Favorite relaxing getaway?
I love the beach. If I was getting on a plane, it would be to Cabo. It’s a quick flight, it has perfect weather, and the food is amazing. But the Rosewood Miramar in Montecito is heaven.

Favorite health food fix?
I’m addicted to OneSun Farms granola. I eat it constantly. That with a green juice from Kreation is the perfect breakfast or snack.

Do you follow a diet?
I never have. I joke that I’ve never gone a day without bread. I should try it.

Favorite hotel?
I have many. In Los Angeles, it’s The Beverly Hills Hotel; it’s a pink dream. In London, I just stayed at The Twenty Two and it was amazing — so cute and cozy.

Favorite workout?
I’m pretty obsessed with Tracy Anderson. I feel my best mentally when I exercise, so I try to stay consistent. On my TA days off, I work out with Elizabeth Vidor — lots of mat pilates, which is impossible in the best way.



Where do you take visiting friends?
I always have to stop by Rick Caruso’s Palisades Village or San Vicente Bungalows when I have visitors in town. I love to drive up the coast and take them to Neptune’s Net or Broad Street Oyster for a taste of Malibu. The seafood is too good and the drive there is so beautiful.

What’s in your cosmetics bag?
I’m not great at doing my makeup, but I do have some holy grail products. I keep my Jennifer Meyer Eau de Parfum and Hand & Body Cream close by at all times, and I’m obsessed with The Honest Co’s Mascara, Saint Jane x Favorite Daughter Lip Oil, anything from Merit or Monika Blunder.

Favorite skincare?
Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Serum. I love everything in Tina Chen Craig’s UBeauty line. Shani Darden. I use C & The Moon Malibu Made Body Scrub in the shower every day and also love their Malibu Made Glow Oil. I also have to say that my JM Hand & Body Cream has become my recent obsession — it’s so hydrating and gives me a glow without feeling greasy.

Hair products?
Lolavie. Leave it to Jen Aniston to create the best of the best.

Favorite flower?
If I had to pick it would be peonies, or anything Eric Buterbaugh designs.

What’s your mantra?
Worrying is like walking around with an umbrella waiting for it to rain. It doesn’t make sense.
