I discovered a little too late a “secret” perfume heaven that sells 1/3 off the leading department store prices! @_@ I wanna say C-R-A-P coz we just bought four (five) recently -at FULL price, but I’m just way too happy with my new discovery that I’ll just let it pass. It was my fault after all, for not looking around first before buying.
And now, YOU know too! So I hope you visit your nearest FRESH FRAGRANCE BAR store BEFORE you make that purchase at a department store. (Nope, this is NOT a paid advertisement.. haha! -I wish!) Although, DUTY FREE still is the best place to buy! :)

These are our 4 (5) recent purchases from Rustan’s just last month & this month as well.. Why do my kids love perfume so much, you might ask. It’s coz their classes don’t have aircon so they always smell like patay na daga when I pick them up from school. ALWAYS! :P So they like spraying perfume to mask their odor & sweat haha! ;))
My Lovey’s 50 ml. SOMEDAY perfume retails at 3,500 php in Rustan’s Sells for 1,800 php at FRESH. I know right?!? :|
Someday is playful, fresh yet flirty and anything but ordinary… a fragrance Justin personally finds irresistible.
It takes off with a splash of fruity mandarin, pear and wild berries, continues with fresh notes of jasmine and creamy florals and ends with warm hints of vanilla and soft musk.
Okay, admittedly, Rustan’s has “giveaways” like this laptop case. But I still prefer the savings over free gift any day! :P
PS- I also just bought Lovey a Justin Beiber Girlfriend, but FRESH doesn’t have it yet. They’re not exactly up to date with their stocks, but do check them out periodically, they might just surprise you! ;)
Katy Perry Meow (Pink) & Purr (Purple) I got Lovey the Pink coz it’s her favorite color. Retails at 3,700 php in Rustan’s. Comes with a free necklace perfume balm. Sells for 2k in FRESH. :'((
Sige na nga. Kunwari the 1.7k went to the purchase of the solid perfume nalang! :P
Ate’s 65 ml. BULGARI Coral OMNIA retails for 5,500 php in Rustan’s Sells foe 3,800 php in FRESH. Again, I know right! :|
The new, 2012, Omnia edition provides optimistic and feminine coral shades for spring. Omnia Coral is a new version that hits the market in spring 2012 and brings us romantic floral-fruity scents full of joy.
Perfumer of the new Omnia Coral is Alberto Morillas, who also created previousBvlgari editions: Omnia, Omnia Amethyste, Omnia Crystalline and Omnia Green Jade, as well as other Bvlgari editions.
Omnia Coral for 2012 attracts attention with its romantic and optimistic color and composition with delicate and feminine notes combined with accentuated red berries (goji berries) and pomegranate. The composition opens with bergamot and goji berries (wolfberry); a heart encompasses gentle water lily, hibiscus and pomegranate, while a base closes with a sophisticated mixture of musk and cedar.
Omnia Coral will be available in characteristic Omnia flacon, as 25, 40 and 65 ml EDT
and last, but not the least..
125 ml. RL Big Pony 3. Retails at 4,500 php in Rustan’s. Sells at 3k in FRESH!
The Big Pony Fragrance Line introduced by Ralph Lauren in June 2010 includes 4 perfumes, each one with a distinctive color and a name within the range 1 to 4. The perfumes were meant to go along with the classic line of polo shirts and accessories and represent the Ralph Lauren’s appeal to a broader and younger audience.
The number 3 from this line, Big Pony 3 comes with a green chromatic and represents an aromatic spicy scent constructed around the mint theme. The opening features ginger for a little spice up of the atmosphere. Heart is composed of mint, the dominant accord and the dry down encloses sweet woody accords.
The bottle of Big Pony 3 resembles the classic bottles from Ralph Lauren, with a green transparent glass, imprinted with number 3 in blue on the frontal side. The back side exhibits the silhouette of a polo player painted in orange; the stopper has silver color and looks like the well known caps of other scents by the same house. Big Pony 3 is the ideal perfume for the men in the age group 18 – 25.
