Customers can bring home a complimentary, signature scent that is a perfect match of their aura based on a personality quiz, with limited quantities available on a first-come-first-served basis. The experience uses one-of-a-kind AI to select the scent and generates artwork that symbolizes the customer’s auric DNA.
To celebrate the launch of the multi-dimensional beauty event of the year, a special “Beauty Night Out” will take place at 19 locations globally, on August 4, with the flagship event kicking off at T Galleria Beauty by DFS, Galaxy Macau.
