Fresh from a happy lunch adventure at the vegetarian resto just below it, a friend and I came upon a store selling perfumes.
Most of its inventory consist of imported brands but what caught our attention were the unusually packaged scents whose display takes pride of place along one of the store’s walls.
Named Perfume Dessert, each variant is inspired by a luscious sweet confection. And you know for a known sweet tooth such as myself, that fact is enough to catch my interest.
Each 30ml crimped spray bottle which prevents leaks and scent diffusion is encased in a colorful cardboard tube, making the perfume quite handy and secure when inside one’s purse. This distinctive packaging also makes Dessert Perfume variants pretty and unusual gifts for the fashionistas who love scents.
Perfume Dessert is an eu de parfum brand that originated from London, UK. This version of perfumes has a lower concentration of fragrant essential oils than parfum, but higher than in eu de toilette. When applied, Perfume Dessert’s scent can last for four to eight hours.
I got three bottles of Perfume Dessert (I bought one while I received two as product samples). I usually choose the scent that suits my mood at the start of the day and I take it with me to the office or on my errands (which just shows how handy they are!).
I choose the Fruit Tart scent when I feel sweet and feminine. It’s great for dinners out with Hubby.
French Macaron‘s more floral scent suits me for afternoons spent outdoors with the kids.
The sweet vanilla scent of Cake Pops, on the other hand, gets me in the mood to face another busy day at the office.
At only Php250 per 30ml bottle, Dessert Perfume definitely fits the working mom’s budget.
(Methinks it would be so easy to get Hubby to buy me some more bottles, yeah? I’ll probably test this theory when my bottles are used up so wish me luck!)
