The Art of Smelling Fresh

Despite always wanting to smell good and fresh, I've never considered myself a perfume addict. Not until I’ve noticed the stash on my dresser. Wow. I never realized that I gathered all these in just two years:

Back in high school days, I always make sure to dab a bit (yes, I take note to use just a little) cologne every now and then to keep me smelling great all day. Like many high school girls, I have tried using Johnson’s Baby Cologne, and then moved to the “more sophisticated” (lol) Bench scents. But, as I grow into a more mature woman, I switched scents, as well. I have tried CK One and L’eau D’Issey, fell in love with Vera Wang, Hugo Boss (for men), and Ralph Lauren Polo Blue (also for men). Have you noticed how I love perfumes for men? Here’s another major revelation: I always hated Victoria’s Secret scents, all of them but one: Pink Grapefruit! Unfortunately, the company already removed this from their product list. L

Thinking about it, it’s true that “Choosing your scent shouldn't be rushed. Especially when you’re young, you should take your time and experiment to find out which perfume works best for you.” This is a statement from one of Fresh Fragrance Bar’s consultants. Fresh fragrance Bar is an authorized perfume retailer that sells imported brands, which are guaranteed authentic, by the way. Beware of online sellers that claim their perfumes are authentic. I learned this the hard way when I bought a 30-ml Vera Wang from a bogus US site.  

Anyway, you may find an array of perfume brands (designer and even store brands) at Fresh Fragrance Bar with branches at the Alabang Town Center, Eastwood Mall, Marquee Mall Pampanga, Lucky Chinatown Mall, and Abreeza Mall Davao. Again, they are guaranteed authentic AND much, much cheaper than what malls offer.
