My love for this perfume house started years ago when I was able to try the range at Mecca Cosmetica’s Sydney CBD counter at Myer. Few years forward, I finally got my hands on APOM (A piece of me) which I’ve previously reviewed. It’s still one a favourite but I get bored easily.
Some of you might know that Francis Kurkdjian’s perfumes are actually pretty expensive 😦 so I’ve never really been able to buy Lumière Noire or Aqua Universalis which has always been on my wishlist.
A recent trip to Malaysia and an unplanned stop to the perfume’s counter in Pavilion KL saw me come home with this beautiful set which I think is such good value if you have too many perfumes like me and can’t seem to stop buying more. It was RM550. I was told that this was a limited edition release for Christmas and I never saw it make an appearance at Mecca here in Australia. You get 8 x 11ml spray bottles which is so handy for travelling too!
I’m also going to say thanks here to the two SAs who served me on the day who were so friendly and non pushy :).
This is the best way to try their most popular (and almost all) of their female releases. I’ve got Aqua Universalis on today, it’s a cool 23 degrees and I’m so surprised that it’s still going strong for an Eau de Toilette. I’m pretty sure it won’t fare as well if the weather were anymore hotter / humid.
