Be scent-sational with FReSH Fragrance Bar!

06 December 2011

Let me tell you about the only silver lining on the most stressful day of my November. I think you guys are going to like this ;)

Exactly a week ago, I went to Eastwood Mall after work to visit FReSH Fragrance Bar. FReSH Fragrance Bar is a free standing retail concept store that lets us experience a new one-stop-shop for all things fragrant and pretty. Owned and operated by Scent and Beaute Concepts, Inc. (which also operates luxury fragrance boutique Art of Scent in Newport Mall- you may read about my visit there here), FReSH appeals to teenagers and yuppies with its vibrant and hip design that aims to make fragrance-shopping leisurely and fun!

FReSH has an extensive selection of premium imported scents - from luxury designer brands to retail favorites, as well as the latest from sports, fashion, and entertainment superstars. It really makes shopping for your favorite scents convenient and easy! Now, if you haven't found your signature scent yet, don't fret as the staff are very well-versed when it comes to the "language" of scents.

It's also great to know that they offer flexible payment schemes, promotions and loyalty programs so you can easily afford the bottle you've been eyeing. As we all know, perfume can be expensive, but in my opinion it is much better to save up for the real thing than resort to buying cheap knock-offs.

ARC PR invited me and some beauty bloggers to try out FReSH Fragrance Bar, and it is my pleasure to give you a virtual tour around the store :)

I have this and it is one of my favorites! I only wear it on special occasions, like when I attended the Philippine Fashion Ball

Anna Sui perfume bottles are so pretty!
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Lavender
Clinique Happy
United Colors of Benetton
Bath and Body Works
They also offer wonderful gift sets - perfume bottles paired with another item (like body wash, lotion, other novelty items) and housed in a lovely box. Aside from being ready-to-give-away, they're also considerably cheaper when you think of the total cost of the items when bought individually. Perfect for Christmas!

We were given gift cards to spend in the store so the beauty bloggers and I had a great time trying on the different scents!

Jheng and I had a ball testing the different fragrances and gushing at how gooooood each one smelled! As proof to how well-trained the staff are, I asked for citrus-floral scents and the sales assistant offered five choices right off the bat! I took home lots of paper testers that now serve as sweet-smelling bookmarks ♥ It was tough to choose which one to take home, but after remembering I already have too many perfume bottles stashed in my apartment, I just decided to buy scents as Christmas gifts to my favorite girl friends in the office :)

Look at my biiig FReSH shopping bag!
Would you like to know what I got? I won't show them yet because my friends read my blog. I want to surprise them! Heehee maybe I'll update this post after I have given them my gifts :)

Still haven't found the perfect gift for the special people in your life? Visit FReSH Fragrance Bar now! The branch we visited is in the 2nd level of Eastwood Mall. They also have branches in Abreeza Mall in Davao and Marquee Mall in Pampanga. They're also set to open branches in the Garden Wing of Alabang Town Center and The Podium in Ortigas by the end of the year so watch out for that!

Special thanks to ARC PR for inviting me, and to Miss Lauren and the staff at FReSH Fragrance Bar for being so helpful and accommodating :)
