Tucked away in an experiential corner is the retailer’s latest crowning jewel. Aptly named ‘Scented Journals’, this brand-new concept invites shoppers to embark on an olfactory journey of discovery through a beautifully curated collection of niche European perfumes.

If you’ve been searching for a new signature scent, this fragrance haven will surely satisfy you and your nose!

Some of the niche European perfumeries you can discover there include Rancé 1795, a house
of perfumers that were once exclusive to French royalty. The perfect choice if you’re into regal aesthetics.

There’s also Nicolaï Parfumeur-Créateur, a niche perfumery brand founded by Patricia de Nicolaï, the first woman to win the SFP (French Society of Perfumers) International Perfumer-Creator Award, as well as The Different Company, a contemporary brand with a passion for creating fragrances with rich olfactory compositions using rare, raw materials.

Among the slew of ingenious perfumes, you can also find gorgeous scents by Etat Libre d’Orange, a whimsical perfumery that is not afraid to shake things up and play with ideas — a great selection for the “cool kids” and unapologetically nonconformist Gen Z’s.
