Bored of the same old? Try out a new fragrance.
Just when you thought you’d found your signature scent, your favourite brand releases a brand new fragrance. Of course it’s fine to stick what you already know and love (plus, people immediately recognise your scent when you walk into a room), but if you’re tempted to switch things up, these new fragrances for all genders do a good job at convincing:
Clean freshness, sensuality, and edge — there’s no differentiating masculinity and femininity with this unisex scent that celebrates both equally. The fragrance has an uplifting citrus scent paired with blue tea accord and cedar wood base. Its bottle and packaging are made from recycled materials. Note the inspiration of Calvin Klein’s infamous underwear waistband as an elastic around the bottle.
Price: RM244 (100ml) and RM342 (200ml)
Burberry Her London Dream

For a touch of your own identity, the curved glass bottle can be personalised with engraved initials on a gold charm around its neck.
