Fragrance: Cheap Vs Pricey - Is There A Difference?
Reading my blog its obvious I love a bargain. I often feature discount store finds and money saving voucher codes for retailers.
I'm quietly sceptical of high end products; do they work? are they worth the extra money? are we just paying for their glossy and expensive marketing campaigns?!
...Well, one thing I think IS worth shelling out on is fragrance.
My experience leads me to believe the more expensive the bottle the longer it lingers. My top three perfumes only require a little squirt and I'm set for the day. Even a few days later returning to a scarf I wore when I last used my Chanel Mademoiselle or Viktor and Rolfe Flowerbomb - I can still smell it lingering.
I have received as gifts and bought cheaper smells in the past, particularly the celebrity endorsed type, but to me a lot of the celeb offerings have a similar pong and are often sickly sweet - perhaps to entice the teenage market?
For me, it's the pricey perfumes, which are worth their price tag.
Rhianna, Beyonce, Kardashian or Gaga - you can forget it. The cheaper perfumes smell for 10 minutes then the waft vanishes!
My top three pricey perfumes that linger are:
Chanel - Mademoiselle
Viktor & Rolf - Flowerbomb
Miss Dior - Cheire
Do you have a favourite fragrance? Have you ever had success with a celeb endorsed purfume?!
