What is the first thing that comes to your mind when someone says ‘perfume’? I’d leave that for you to answer! But, for me, perfume reminds me of my mom.
Yep! That’s right. My first memory of perfume comes from my childhood when I would watch my mom get ready for work and finish off with a perfume and the entire room would be filled of her fragrance. I’d just watch her dreamily, and when she would noticed my dreamy face; she’d smile and come over an spray a little on my dress. And oh boy! I was the happiest kid in town!
Perfumes have always been a beautiful way to make memories, disguise as a wonderful gift and the perfect symbol of love and friendship.

They last longer
Have you noticed that when you spray on some alcohol based fragrance, they seem super strong at first and then slowly they disappear?

No more skin allergies
Most alcohol based perfumes tend to evolve an allergic reaction on the skin. Especially for people who have sensitive skin and need to be extra careful about using and choosing perfumes.
