    We promise these new scents are worth the investment, and they will never go out of style.

  • You are probably balking at the luxury brands here, but before you purse your mouth in disapproval, hear us out. Your chosen fragrance can say a lot about you. It is why when most of us find a scent we love (and people like), we stick with it forever. But, like makeup, sometimes it’s fun to switch things up, and there is nothing like a new year to shop for a new favorite. Which brings us to our next point: price. For our picks, the 100mL bottles roughly go for P4,500 each. Remember though perfumes are quite potent as scents. Colognes may be more affordable, but it doesn't last because its fragrance notes are more diluted. So a 30mL bottle especially our picks here can last for a long time. (How to use tip: Do a small spritz on the pressure points - wrists, neck, nape -- and behind the knees if you're in a dress.)  

    Yes, perfumes are an investment, but, moms, you are worth it! Give yourself a merry Christmas with any of these 7 must-try perfumes, which, by the way, come in the prettiest bottles (you can start a vignette or a "happy corner" in your house with any of these bottles).
