Christmas Special : Gourmand Fragrances

By Jo Phillips

When the city is shining, the air filled with mouthwatering smells and the boutiques are your only obsession, you know it. Christmas is coming! It’s this marvelous time of the year where,while eating a creamy piece(s!) of cake, your only worry is “did I already taste the pie!?”. Ok, Christmas is also about family and sharing beautiful memories, however we all have to be honest and agree that the most exciting parts are the food and gifts! Impossible to do both at the same time? We have the solution: Gourmand Fragrances!
Here at .Cent we are celebrating the world of taste and scent by sharing with you delicious fragrances that will activate your tastebuds!
