this progression. With its innovatively offered beauty consultancy services, the store

Top Note has been designed bearing in mind that the act of buying a cosmetic or perfume is
not limited to an over-the-counter transaction. It extends to incorporate the fashion and
peer-group and personality influences that initiate interest in beauty product
purchase. Exploring the options offered by the various colours and smells associated
with looking good has been proven to have a definite therapeutic benefit for the
shopper. Top Note also bears in mind that choosing a cosmetic or a perfume is usually
a relaxed, very personal experience for most customers.
The outlet translates this philosophy in the luxurious ambiance and relaxed environment
of its exquisite interiors. Top Note has two exclusive, comfortably furnished Beauty
Cabins that allow clients to try out new products and learn the aesthetic techniques to
blossom the full potential of their beauty. Additionally, the customers are aided in
their voyage of discovery by trained Beauty Advisors, who detail the professional touches
provided by beauticians and aid in the choice of right products for skin types and

cosmetics. For its customers, Top Note brings together some of the most celebrated names
