Words: Lauren Carbran
As we enter a new decade, one thing’s for sure – you’ll want to start off 2020 with the right perfume. This year is all about self-care, which means treating yourself more often should be right up there at the top of your priority list (yay). Ready for a fragrance experience you’ll never forget? Follow our three steps to a tailored fragrance journey at The Perfume Shop. Happy spritzing!
1. GO IN STORE FOR A PERSONAL FRAGRANCE CONSULTATION
Fancy a personal scent shopper? Your wish is our command. All our in-store staff are highly qualified fragrance experts and they’re here to help guide you towards your perfect perfume. Simply speak to one of our staff about a bespoke fragrance consultation and they’ll get you testing new, trending and classic fragrances, taking into account your personality and lifestyle. There’s a perfect personalised perfume out there for everyone, so make the most of your time in store. Top tip: take a few minutes’ break after smelling three perfumes (so your nose doesn’t get overwhelmed!), and if you like a fragrance, leave it to rest on your skin for 5-10 minutes to experience the dry-down (that’s the base notes, which will last the longest on your skin). No time to pop into store? Go to our online Fragrance Finder, which will help lead you to the fragrance of your dreams. You’re welcome.
2. GET YOUR PERFUME ENGRAVED
This is personalisation at its best. Customised perfume is totally trending for 2020 – and if you want in, it’s time to treat yourself to an engravable perfume. The best part? You’ll find over 350 engravable bottles at The Perfume Shop, so you can add a special message and find an incredible new scent. Perhaps you have a motto or simply fancy your initials? As long your personalised perfume is a max of 66 characters, the choice is yours. Take a look at these engravable top picks – YSL Libre For Her, which couples zesty orange blossom with calming lavender, and K by Dolce & Gabbana For Him, with its notes of spicy pimento and lemon.
3. ADD THE FINISHING TOUCHES
Go one step further and add something extra. Perhaps some Lindt chocolates tickle your taste buds or snag the gorgeous Baylis & Harding Sweet Mandarin & Grapefruit candle for your home (it has two wicks – bonus!). If you’re a beauty buff, try the Oh K! Pink Fizz T-Zone Bubble Face Mask For Her, for the ultimate pampering session. For guys, you’ll find all your skincare essentials in our Clinique Happy? For Men range. That’s you sorted.
