- What feedback do you get from your customers?
Customers are always so fascinated by the variety of exclusive and Luxury fragrances we carry, we are constantly working closely with the official brands themselves, to increase our range and expand our selection of some of the finest fragrances in the world.
- What are some unusual customer questions you get?
Are your products original? The answer is YES!
City Perfume like Myer or Sephora are one of the very few perfumeries that are in fact Authorised Retailers of Niche and Luxury fragrances.
Our products are sourced from the official distributor and licenced brand owners in Australia and overseas, you can always count on our products authenticity and freshness, although we might not be as competitive as some discount online retailers or pharmacy’s we do offer some great specials whenever they become available to our customers.
Every brand has strict rules and guidelines that we as Authorised Retailers are required to adhere to when it comes to pricing, but we work very hard to get great offers from our brands that we love sharing with our loyal customers.
Follow us on Facebook or ask one of our staff to sign you up to our VIP list next time you visit the store, so you never miss out on any special offers from your favourite brands.
- What are some must-have items, services or experiences right now?
We have just introduced Memo, Parfums de Marly and Yves Saint Laurent exclusive fragrances, to our already huge range of brands these brands are known as makers of some of the best and highest quality of perfumes in the world.
- Why do you think shopping centres are important?
They are truly the beating heart of every community, where else can you find services, entertainment, shopping and dining all in the one convenient location, they also provide important and sustainable jobs for local members of the community.
- What do you love most about your job?
I love that I get to share my passion of perfume every day, perfume has a very long history in society dating all the way back to ancient Egypt, there are so many stories and interesting tips about fragrance that I enjoy sharing with my customers.
- What motivates you?
There is nothing more motivating in my line of work then seeing the smile and joy on someone's face after helping them discover their new fragrance obsession! Every time you find a new scent it can be so captivating, it's almost like falling in love all over again!
- What are some of your favourite stores in your Stockland centre?
The Gozleme Co would have to be one of my favourite places to go for lunch their staff are amazing and their gozleme are so authentic and delicious.
- How have you coped with COVID-19 and what are you looking forward to?
COVID-19 has definitely been challenging, many retailers closed, but we were one of the very few businesses to continue to operate. We value our staff, who are also local members of the community with families so we made the decision to stay open and support them and their families, so they could also continue to provide their services to our amazing customers at Merrylands whom without their support and loyalty we would not have been able to keep our doors open. So we owe all our amazing customers and our wonderful staff a very big thank you and we absolutely can't wait to see all those familiar faces back at our store we have made good use of these quieter than usual trade time to perfect and increase our product range and services and we can't wait to show what's new!
