Apparently, there are 14 fragrance families Wait, really?
From the 30th of September until the 9th of August, David Jones Elizabeth Street is holding it's annual Spring Flower Show - this year entitled 'Fleuressence'.

The show starts outside with the spectacular windows David Jones is famous for, combining fashion with sumptuous flower displays. I highly recommend taking your time to wander around to all of the windows to check out the incredible work the organisers have done.

Inside, the 1920s décor has been transformed into a veritable jungle of flowers and greenery. Pots and vases overflowing with colour line the walkways, adorn the walls, and sail to the ceiling on plinths and in glass tubes.

[ADVERT]Fleuressence is a celebration of the 14 fragrance families. My favourite part of the show is just inside the Market Street door where a 'fragrance wheel' has been set up: a gorgeous display of flowers in the middle, surrounded by representative scents for each member of the fragrance family. Each fragrance is accompanied by a perfume or cologne of that nature so you know what to look for if something strikes your fancy.

The show is completely free, so it's a wonderful way to kill half an hour in the city. Complimentary guided tours of the store are available for the duration of the show but bookings are essential.
From David Jones, you could cross into Westfield and the Pitt Street Mall, or take a walk through Hyde Park. Even if Fleuressence is your sole excuse for visiting, it is well worth the effort.
