Christian Dior once said, “Perfume is a mark of female identity and the final touch of her style.” But finding your signature scent is not that easy with a lot of perfumes in the market with different projections, sillage, and longevity, and don’t forget most of them have expensive price tags. That is why before splurging on a full bottle, I opt for decanted perfumes so I can test them for days if they will suit my body chemistry. Below are the shops where to buy decanted perfume in the Philippines.
1.PERFUME LOVE MANILA – My go-to Shopee store for decanted perfumes. They have a lot of brands from Byredo, Chanel, Diptyque, Frediric Malle, Le Labo, MFK, Maison Margiela Replica, Penhaligon, Tom Ford, and more. Besides decanted perfumes, they also sell some official travel sizes.
2. OFFICIAL VIAL – I discovered this very aesthetic Instagram shop through a friend, and now I highly recommend them too. They don’t just only sell decants, they also educate people about perfumes. I also appreciate that they use less plastic and encourage recycling. Sometimes, they also sell full bottles.
3.HIP CLOSET – Another one of my go-to stores in Shopee for decanted perfume. But they also sell travel sizes and full bottles. They have brands like Kaya Ali, Miss Dior, Penhaligon, Parfums De Marly, Tom Ford, Le Labo, Byredo, Diptyque, and more.
4. LES SENTEURS – Another Instagram shop recommended by another friend. (Yes, my friends and I love collecting perfumes but refuse to blind buy). Unlike most shops listed here, this one carries the most niche brands, and they are also really good at describing the scents. I swear, their posts are a must-read!
5. UNBOX DIARIES – Another one from Shopee and they have a good selection of perfumes as well like Kay Ali, Zara, Viktor & Rolf, Hermes, Byredo, MFK, Parfums De Marly, and more.
So far these are the stores I recommend where to buy decanted perfume in the Philippines. As always, I will update this post when I found a new one.
