Though not visible to the naked eye, one can not deny the fact that scents are what make your appearance complete. And while you’re serving looks, it also pays to treat the olfactory good.
There’s never a shortage of great new fragrances in the market. In fact, according to Techavio, the luxury perfume market will still continue to grow from USD 11.72 billion in 2019 to USD 14.16 billion by the year 2024 despite the adverse effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the report published by the same research company, they also mentioned that well-loved luxury companies could continue to affect market performance including, but not limited to, Chanel Ltd., Compagnie Financière Richemont SA, Coty Inc., Hermès International SA, Kering SA, LOreal SA, and LVMH Moët Hennessy.
2021 has just begun, and if you are still unsure of the perfect scent to cop despite our zodiac-approved-list, then you better start from the classics as suggested by our resident perfumer and an avid collector of scents CJ Firmo of Kaori Manila.
Kaori Manila is an online shop of perfumes that started last October 2020. Since she was young CJ Firmo, the founder of Kaori Manila, has always been fascinated by perfumes “I remember when I was in grade school, my mom had this Versace mini set perfumes and the bottle was so tiny and cute that I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Out of curiosity, I tried all of them and I could remember vividly that was my first ever perfume experience,” she gleefully shares. “Since then, my liking towards perfume has grown tremendously. I could also remember clearly that whenever we go out of the country or even in the local malls, my mom would find me in the scent section, trying on scents and asking the sales staff about each scents’ distinctions. That’s how fascinated I’am about perfumes.” Firmo added.
Armed with curiosity in mind and an outstanding sniff for good scents, CJ started her own perfume shop Kaori- which translates to “scent” in Japanese, “I just love the idea of how smelling good is also related to feeling good.” she quips. “Aside from completing one’s look, I’m certain that scents bring back so many memories to its wearer. In my case, I always make sure to wear specific perfume for different events and occasions. This sets a mark in my being and a deep association to everything.”
“I think it is fascinating how people are starting to appreciate the significance of fragrance more in this day and age. It makes you attractive and leaves a long-lasting impression. It can even boost your confidence, enhances your mood, and can bring comfort. That is why I am overjoyed to bring your favorite memories back through scents with Kaori.” She ended.
