With the advent of spring, a bouquet of fresh fragrances have hit the shiny beauty cabinets of Myer Forrest Chase.
From Gucci to Dior and YSL, the world’s top brands have released their latest scents for men and women and the choice is spectacular. Not sure where to start? When shopping for a signature scent, the tried and true tradition of smelling coffee beans between EDPs really does help, so bring a small container with you if you are serious about finding the perfect aroma.
When you have narrowed your choice down, spray the fragrance directly onto your skin and let it settle, as different notes will react to your natural smell. Then let your intuition guide you to the perfect fit.
Here are some of our favourite new perfumes and colognes, all available at Myer Forrest Chase…
