Fragrance Update

Confused by fragrance? Make-up artist and fragrance fanatic Terry de Gunzburg shares her top 5 really easy tips...


Mix old to get new

‘My mother taught me to mix fragrances to create my own signature scent. I like giving fresh fig a more intense edge by layering it with a few sprays of woody oud. By doing this, you can take old fragrances you own, combine them on your skin, and end up with a new and very unique signature scent – for free!’


Apply scent differently for day and night

‘Experiment with how and where you apply fragrance. For day, I like to apply it to my wrists and on the insides of my elbows whereas for night, I apply it directly to my hair to give the scent off every time I move or flick it’.


Stock up on samples

‘Beautiful perfume bottles can be very heavy and shouldn’t be carried around daily in your handbag. Buy your signature as a purse spray or go to a counter and collect a few free samples’.


Layer multiple textures

‘I love perfumed body cream and like to layer it up with the matching fragrance; it creates a more intense, longer-lasting scent. If your favourite scent doesn’t come in a body cream, buy a fragrance free body lotion and mix the two in the palm of your hand before applying’.

You Need to Know This...

‘Use the colour of the fragrance juice as a guide; pink tends to be feminine, blue energising, green fresh and darker heavier’

    Amazing, I love Terry de Gunzburg parfum, my favorite is flagrant delice and partis pris, so happy to have found it here since it is impossible to get these in Sweden, bought them when I was in Hamburg last time. <3
