Farmers Beauty Week 2015 kicks off on 17 March and runs till 22 March. Go to your nearest Farmers for masterclasses, seminars, consultations and product trials with the country’s top beauty brands.
Here, Farmers beauty experts show you how to find your new fragrance by explaining the four main fragrance families.
The most popular fragrance family for women. Floral fragrances are a mixed bouquet of rose, gardenia, tuberose, jasmine and gardenia. These fragrances are for the romantics among us. We love Estée Lauder Modern Muse from $112 each and Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs, from $71 each.
Fragrances in this family are described as zesty, clean and sparkling. They are full of ripe fruits from the citrus family, and finely blended with fresh cut grass to evoke memories of the first days of spring. We love Issey Miyake L’eau d’Issey Eau de Toilette, from $142 each, and Elizabeth Arden UNTOLD Eau Fraiche, from $104 each.
With deep layers of soft sandalwood, warm rosewood, rich patchouli, soft blossom and a hint of spice, this fragrance family is a favourite for the sensual ones among us. We love Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum, from $142 each, and Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium from $113 each.
Rich, spicy earthy notes of patchouli, sandalwood and a touch of cinnamon give Woody fragrances many layers of warmth. We love NARCISO EAU DE PARFUM, from $122, and Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum, from $113 each.
