The Spring Racing Carnival is one of the biggest events on the Melbourne calendar.  Many women even start their outfit months in advance.  But the key to a great outfit is all about the little details.  So what scent will you wear with your outfit?                  

This depends on which days you’re going to or which parties you will attend.  In Melbourne there are four major race days.  The first day in the Spring Racing calendar is the Victoria Derby (Derby Day), this is held on the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup.  It is a set-weights race for three-year-old horses. Royal Apothic Cutting Garden Eau De Parfum is a perfect scent to for the first big Flemington race event.  It’s summery and fresh and will make a delicious addition to your outfit.

Traditionally knows as “Ladies Day”, The VRC Oaks race is held on the Thursday following the Cup.  Opt for a very feminine floral scent such as Royal Apothic English Rose Eau De Parfum on this day. Pack the Blossom Travel size to keep you smelling great all day.

The final event of the Spring Carnival is The VRC Stakes Day and is held on the Saturday following the Oaks.  Traditionally as 'family day', this day calls for dressing down a little and being fun and playful.  A subtle, youthful scent is the perfect match for Stakes Day. Try Royal Apothic Extract of Marigold spray.  The single note, roll-on perfume is the perfect travel size to keep in your handbag for a long day at the races.  You can wear the roll-on scents on their own, or blend a few together to create your own signature fragrance.
