You can also explore Dior’s augmented reality (AR) filter, create greeting cards with limited-edition Dior stamps and indulge in cupcakes from The Marmalade Pantry. What’s not to love?

Ever find yourself stopping in your tracks as you walk along the River Seine at a florist stand and just standing there to admire the beautiful bouquets that fill the shelves? Filled with an array of different flowers and scents, yet they always go so well together. 

Now, imagine turning that beautiful bouquet into a fragrance that you can wear all day, every day. With the Chloe Ateliers Des Fleurs collection, you can create your very own fragrance bouquet with its range of different scented blooms. The collection boasts a range of 17 singular floral scents, from Cedrus and Magnolia, to Mimosa and Neroli, and the newly launched Violette and Santalum. 

The good news:  You don’t have to travel to Paris to create your personalised olfactory bouquet.

Designed to bring the Parisian florist experience to you, head over to the Chloe Ateliers Des Fleurs pop-up at Raffles City where you can discover all 17 Chloe Des Fleurs fragrances. 

But that’s not all. Every Friday to Sunday in November, between 2-5pm, you get to enjoy complimentary services such as gift wrapping when buying a hand-picked fragrance bouquet for your closest or yourself, charm engraving, fragrance miniatures and personalised gifts. And this is happening throughout the month of November. 

Visit the Chloe Atelier Des Fleurs pop-up store at #01-40A Raffles City. Open till February 2023.
