Every now and then a retailer does something that you just can’t help but recognize and today I feel like talking about Fresh’s Fragrance Chronicles.
All of Fresh’s fragrances have the ability to be layered. Next time you’re in there ask them for suggestions, they do mix well together. Anyhow, a while ago, I was looking for something unique to get my lady for Christmas when I strolled into their Union Square store and was introduced to this index of eau de parfum. With a selection of fifteen different scents, which include, Bergamont Citrus, Bulgarian Rose, Fig Apricot, Patchouli Pure, Sandalwood Vert (now discontinued, PLEASE BRING IT BACK) and a host of others, its provides endless opportunities to create unique scents. I wasn’t sure if she would be into mixing but I knew it would be appreciated…and it sure was.
One of my favorite mixtures is Fig Apricot and Sandalwood Vert. I like to think its an airy, updated barbershop connection.
What I appreciate about the Fragrance Chronicles is the ability to play, create and make my own fragrant moment so to speak. While this is currently discontinued (seems like all the good stuff ends up going away), layering and mixing can be fun. Start slow…try a few things out on the weekend and see what works. You never know, you just might create your signature scent.
