Perfume is personal. The perfume you wear speaks a lot about your taste and attitude! Plus, it is one of the first things others notice about you, without even trying on that. You cannot control the fragrance flowing in the air, but you can choose which fragrance should flow, right! Now we all like Korean makeup; it is subtle yet adds that little glitter that will make you stand out!
Speaking about Korean fragrances, we have a surprise fact. Apparently, Koreans are major fans of International brand perfumes and not any local brands. It is not very surprising with Seoul as the global fashion hub with all the major international brands available there. So, let us see what’s popular in Seoul and what gets them intoxicated.
