This year, to celebrate your leading lady, opt for a gift that will create an indelible impression.

If we could pick the top three summer fragrances of the year, these would be it. Spoil your mom, today.

Davidoff Cool Water EDT 125 ml. for Men

david_off_for_men_sent-ember_01_An old favourite, one that has been around for a long time now – since the late 1980s, is Davidoff Cool Water, Eau De Toilette. If you’re a perfume connoisseur you’ll know that this one is a classic. Cool Water for Men is well known for its fresh scent, reminiscent of the ocean and the spray of the surf as you walk along a beach on a warm summer’s day. The clean, uncomplicated fragrance of ocean air, fresh, minty, summery and immortal: that is the essence of this evergreen EDT for men.

Davidoff Cool Water EDT 100 ml. for Women

david_off_for_woman_sent-ember_01_Cool Water for Women has fond memories for many who knew it to be their first experience with perfumes. Again a classic, this one speaks volumes about a woman’s ethereal nature. A fragrance that bespeaks a sensual, natural beauty, like water glistening on skin, it is imbued with a fruity and floral freshness that gives it everlasting vibrancy.

Calvin Klein One EDT 200 ml.

calvin_klein_one-_sent-ember_01_The One is possibly the first of its kind to be a unisex EDT from a big name in the perfume industry. Known as the original “shared” fragrance, it inspires you with the confidence and courage to be yourself. Cool, clean and refreshing, this is a universally likable and desirable scent.

Paco Rabanne Invictus EDT 100 ml. for Men

paco_rabanne_invictus_sent-ember_01_The word Invictus means invincible, something that has dynamic energy. This for the men who are that way and/or want to feel that way. “The Scent of Victory, the essence of heroes” is what this sensation is all about. Warm masculinity mingled with a clean freshness makes this one “ecstatically addictive”.

Any one of these specials is bound to make you feel good in a number of ways. Whether you use it yourself or gift it to a loved one, the benefits are nearly tangible. Surround yourself with the fragrances that make living so good; wake yourself up on a gloomy day with a whiff of a favourite scent; indulge yourself in a bouquet of perfume when you step out for a night on the town. It’s good to know that you cannot go wrong with any one of these EDTs.

At Bengaluru Duty Free we take pleasure in making you feel special. Take a look at our Best Deals on our website and see what you would like best.

February’s Finest

We love brands because we feel attached and loyal to them. Sometimes, we even put them on a pedestal and worship them because that’s how devoted we feel to them. Not going by the usual textbook explanation, there is an underlying, mystical spirit that only good brands have in common. So what do all the good brands share in common that sets them apart?

Like strong resemblances between family members, good brands also share many qualities that define them and draw us towards them. When we search for the essence of all good brands, that elucidates what it means to be a good brand, we can’t find it because in reality there is no basic essence to which all good brands can be abridged. We can surely distinguish them with high quality standards, their long-lasting endurance and of course the hole in the pocket that they drill. To be honest, brands are much more than that. They fill the void between who you are and who you desire to be. A good brands compels you to be better than yourself because let’s face it you can always have scope for improvement. Now that you know what we love about brands. Here are some of the finest brands that we stock and why we love them.
