Words: Lauren Carbran
This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2019, which is recognised all over the world – and for good reason. Raising awareness to help fund lifesaving research and support, the charity is holding a Wear It Pink day to raise money for this amazing cause. And while you’re wearing pink, why not spritz a pink perfume, too? Here are the ones we’ll be wearing to add our support…
MARC JACOBS DAISY LOVE EAU SO SWEET
Welcome the latest, addictive Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume into your life and have no regrets. Daisy Love Eau So Sweet is filled with daisy tree petals, jasmine milk and raspberries, and captures the smell of a perfect sunset on the beach in its pink crystallised bottle. What could be more perfect to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month?
GUERLAIN MON GUERLAIN INTENSE
Guerlain Mon Guerlain is in the pink! This captivating perfume, with the lavender, vanilla and sandalwood you know and love, is now even richer, creamier and more intense than you remember. What’s more, if you’re into sustainable beauty and helping the planet, you’ll be pleased to know that Guerlain creates fragrances with sustainable development in mind, reducing its carbon footprint from factory to store.
LANCOME LA VIE EST BELLE EN ROSE
The original Lancôme La Vie Est Belle has had a pink makeover – and we’re loving it. With its refreshed pink bow and pink-tinted ingredients (rose and peonies), you’ll be transported instantly into a pink-filtered world. Whether you’re out for brunch with the girls or enjoying the crisp, autumn air on a walk, this is the equivalent of dressing to impress for the new season. We have one word for it – lush.
ARMANI SI FIORI
Fiori means flowers in Italian, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to love this if you’re a floral fan. Cue the sweet, subtle hints of rose and neroli, mixed with mandarin and blackcurrant, which will give you the elegant glow you’re looking for. You can’t go wrong with this ultra-feminine and chic fragrance – especially if you’re wearing it for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
DID YOU KNOW IT’S WORLD ALZHEIMER’S MONTH IN SEPTEMBER?
This September, we’re doing our bit to support World Alzheimer’s Month and raise awareness of the disease. With two out of three people in the world having no knowledge of what dementia is, now is the time to spread the word. That’s why we’re helping power ground-breaking dementia research at The Perfume Shop. And we’ve raised more than £60,000 this year. Here’s how you can donate:
BUY AN ORANGE BLOSSOM CANDLE
Every time you buy this floral scented candle, £3 is donated to Alzheimer’s Research UK.
ADD A DONATION AT CHECKOUT
When you buy a new perfume or a gift for that special someone, you can add a 50p donation to Alzheimer’s Research UK at checkout.
