#out&about...Fleuressence at David Jones

Spring has arrived in Sydney!


To celebrate this gorgeous season David Jones  (department stores)

put on its annual tradition of a full floral display.


The theme this year was fragrance – all 14 families.


I managed to pop along on the last day

(with my iPhone) & had a ‘blooming lovely’ time.

My favourite area of ‘Fleuressence’ was the sniffing station:

a circle of  little perspex boxes representing each of the 14 family fragrances.




Each box contained a description of the fragance type, a natural source eg. spice etc 

plus a matching perfume.




Through sticking my nose over these boxes, I found my favourite scent types;

Floral (Estee Lauder –  Pure White Linen)

Oriental (Tom Ford –  Tobacco Vanille)

The ‘Fleuressence’ sniffing station was also a huge hit with my husband,

but for very different reasons.

To quote


“it was like watching hens pecking”

Well, I for one am glad he didn’t say that out loud.
