“Years after the event, I have come to the conclusion that the best presents any girl could get on her eighteenth birthday would be: a) the most expensive adult haircut possible, b) a session with a style and colour consultant, and c) enough money to throw out 90 percent of all her underwear and clothes that were either the wrong colour or not suitable and replace them with a wardrobe in which to properly set forth into the world. I now have to add a fourth: d) a session with Catherine Menagé to find that perfect perfume to go with all of the above.

“Thank you for such a lovely morning, I really really enjoyed it, and on my way home stopped at the perfume counters and continued exploring with perfume! It was such a great experience for me, and has definitely changed my experience of perfume completely.”

“It was a quiet Sydney Saturday afternoon. On the long dining table, Catherine laid before me a black box, large, almost square. She lifted the lid. Inside lay, in serried rows, small bottles half full of pale liquid. She took one, lifted it to the light, and sprayed a fine mist onto a small white paper piece. She held it to my nose. And it was beautiful.

“If you are a lover of scent, having a perfume consultation with Catherine is like being transported back to the Christmas mornings of your early childhood. There’s a sense of excitement in the air as you enter her dining room where rows and rows of scents are lined up, ready to be sniffed, discussed, enjoyed and maybe even adored. Perhaps there’s that one magical scent you have been trying to find for so long among all her treasures…

“My perfume consultation with Catherine was most enjoyable, educational and extremely useful. As I had never bought my own perfume before, Catherine opened my eyes to the range of possibilities I could choose from. She was very friendly and made me feel comfortable to be honest in my decision making. She is very knowledgeable on the subject of perfume and taught me many little tips and hints that will come in handy. Thanks to her I know that I prefer flower and fruit scented perfumes which makes it a lot easier to choose a perfume from the previously daunting extensive range available.”

“I have always been told by my parents that I could not be an expert in everything. Hence my absolute fear of what to do with perfume! The world of perfume had always eluded me until Catherine introduced me to it. Fear alone had precluded me from ever buying these intoxicating little bottles of scent. I kept saying to myself, “I don’t know what to do with this stuff” and “My gosh this is expensive! I had better not indulge in case I make a mistake”. So, for years and years, I admired those who successfully have been able to smell divine, as they walk past…with great envy…I might add! I would stride very quickly past the perfume counters especially in airports and not know what to do if I was standing near one. All this changed one afternoon. Catherine

“My afternoon with Catherine and Scent of Choice was wonderfully indulgent, fun and unknown. I had no idea, and had never before contemplated, the science behind scent, its origins and combinations and its entirely individual application. Catherine was extremely knowledgeable and guided me both in the use of scent and in the direction of a scent I would never have experienced myself, and which I now adore. Thanks to Catherine, I now have the Scent of my informed Choice.”
