Last year Chicago made headlines around the globe for introducing the first city-specific fragrance entirely grown in the city proper. Next week on June 26, Chicago-based Tru Fragrance is releasing the details on Tru Blooms 2013--which from what we hear will be even more impressive. The formula for the fragrance has been elevated with new flowers and there are more new green spaces, gardens and partners involved in growing the flowers and herbs the fragrance is comprised of.
