Scent Stories: Cuong

There are lots of perks to working at Parfumado. Our team is great, and so are our customers. But the best thing about working in operations (as I do) is saying goodbye to all the orders every few weeks. It's like clearing your inbox if your inbox smelt like delicious perfume.

Meet Cuong

Hey everyone, I'm Cuong, and I started at Parfumado as an intern 3-years ago. That makes me one of the longest-standing members of staff. My role now is overseeing the logistics of delivering perfume to our subscribers and one-off shoppers. I love my job because it has taught me a lot about perfume. Like with most things, I think the more you learn the more you want to know. My favourite fragrance notes are Aquatic, Fresh and Citrus.

What are your three favourite perfumes?

As I said, I've been here for three years or more, so I've tried a few perfumes in that time. But the ones that I keep going back for are; Versace - Versace Pour Homme, Dolce & Gabbana - Light Blue for Him and A.N Other - Fr/18.

What does perfume mean to you?

Perfume is much more than a 'nice' smell. Like clothes are much more than something to keep you warm. I think scents can be an emotional thing. If you are wearing the wrong scent, you're going to feel self-conscious. But if you are wearing something that suits you, you might feel invincible. That's the power of perfume, at least in my opinion.

If you could create your ideal scent, what would that be like?

It is hard to pick an ideal scent, especially if you are talking about one scent for all. Perfume is way more personal than that. But if I was making something for me, I would have to combine the sea breeze, fresh herbs and grasses and perhaps some citrus notes to round it out. Now that sounds like a winner to me.
