You should never underestimate the power of a great fragrance. As you all know, fragrances can attract attention, change your mood, and even express your unique personality. So, as the year ends, it's time to reassess your own perfume collection and decide if it's time for a new signature scent. If you're willing to invest in a designer fragrance, we've got the buzz on two recently-released scents that will raise you to the height of luxury.
Renowned high fashion house Jimmy Choo may be known for its shoes, which were popularized by Sex And The City, but this year, the brand has branched out to the realm of perfumery. Jimmy Choo Parfums come in eau de toilette and eau de parfum variants that exude both sweetness and sensuality. It was launched at Rustan's Makati before a crowd of fragrance-loving women, including host Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Miriam Quiambao, Phoemela Baranda, and Megan Young.
Meanwhile, another luxury brand released two new fragrances that capture the spirit of the Big Apple. New York-based fragrance house Bond No. 9 launched their Madison Square Park and New York Oud fragrances at the Grand Mall of Rustan's Makati. These unisex perfumes come in star-shaped bottles and are more concentrated than usual fragrances, with an oud concentration of 30 percent instead of the typical 20 percent. Notable guests at the launch included Issa Litton and Karen Davila.
