Top Sale this Week
You know how when someone’s perfume of choice is a cult fragrance, you just automatically respect them more? Now you or your man can be that cool, elusive scent-wearer, because Q Brothers (4718 N. Lincoln Ave., qbrothers.com) is hosting a Tauer Perfumes trunk show on Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m.
Q Brothers is the only Chicago carrier of the Switzerland-based perfume brand. Normally, the store stocks only eight of the company’s fragrances, but on Saturday, all 17 will be available—in limited quantities, of course. Gotta keep the masses guessing.
