The Science of Scent.  According to scientists, it’s the first sense that’s activated when we’re born.  And a scent can instantly bring you back to your babyhood memories or an ex-lover’s embrace.  Deeply connected to our emotional and is far more honest than our behaviour, surprisingly.

Along the busy Lyndhurst Terrace at the heart of Central, where everyone rushes for work across their timeline, hide the little yet delicate Parfumerie Trésor.  It’s exactly the treehole Mr White Rabbit jumps into in the Alice in Wonderland, leading to a French girl’s private closet.  Bonjour!

Parfumerie Trésor has 21 perfume brands, including 18-19 of them exclusively sold here.  Unlike the highstreet brands you see, it has brands ranging from the oldest Royal Brits’ Floris with 285years of history to one of the world’s most expensive perfume brand Xerjoff; from the sweet girly Ballerina rose-based perfume to the French lady 1889 Moulin Rouge based on red lips and opera to the more hardcore unisex Laurent Mazzare.

Woody, musky, clean white shirt, rose, pineapple, any scent you can think of.  One different thing about Perfumerie Tresor is that it feels like a private lil girl closet rather than a shop.  Listening to perfume stories while having a floral tea simply kicks my Monday blues away.  Also, caring personalised services are something you can't miss to make sure you get something so “you”.

Tips to put perfume on

  1. Wrists and your forearm

  2. Behind your ears

  3. Hair

  4. Your top, along a V-shape

  5. Skirt or knees

  6. NEVER rub your perfume!  It destroys the formula of the perfume!

Perfume is the combination of soul and science.  Your scent represents more than you think it does.  It’s the last piece of outfit one can never afford to leave out.  Transparent, weightless, unholdable; yet, the most representative and unforgettable, deeply rooted in your memories.
