Christmas is almost here and there's never been a better time to snap up a new perfume thanks to Priceline's epic half price sale, which kicks off Tuesday December 4 and runs till Thursday December 6.
And this is a true sale too. It includes ALL of the store's fragrances - even gift sets. Hurrah!
Maybe you read this and immediately made a mental note as to which scent would be perfect for you and for all of your nearest and dearest.
But if not, here's a run-down of five sensational scents to consider, as recommended by Priceline's fragrance buyer Meaghan Logan. Because let's face it - what she doesn't know about perfume is just not worth knowing. So here we go.
Meghan's first pick is this truly lovely scent. If you don't own a bottle of your own - now is the time to snap up one up.
“An iconic fragrance from the luxury French fragrance house Lancôme, La vie est belle, a French expression meaning “Life is beautiful”, is the fragrance of joyful femininity and happiness," says Meaghan.
"This prestige fragrance is suitable for women of all ages and makes a perfect gift for the special person in your life!” If you ask us, this is the perfect mystery fragrance that leaves a trail of sophistication and wonder. Wear it and you will find out. We promise.
This one is one of Meaghan's favourites and she's bringing it home at number two. Here, she explains why.
“A modern floral and fruity fragrance with a deep woody base, Jimmy Choo EDT is feminine, fun and playful! At only $30 for 40ml, it’s the perfect handbag size fragrance or stocking stuffer.”
That is a killer price and also - this scent is perfect daywear, especially in meetings during which you want to impress. Which is all of them now that we come to think about it.
Sliding into third place on Meaghan's top five fragrances is Estee Lauder's classic Modern Muse. Meaghan describes it this way:
“From the best-selling Estee Lauder fragrance collection, Modern Muse is a popular choice for many of our customers. The key notes of jasmine and sleek woods exude femininity and strength."
And frankly, her description is perfect. This is a womanly scent that also stands out from the crowd.
Whoah. Yep - the fellas made Meaghan's list. And fair enough. They deserve a sophisticated and seductive scent every bit as much as we do and this one is it! Think of it this way - you gift it to him, but you're the one who gets to revel in it. See ... smart thinking there ladies.
Meaghan says: “Jimmy Choo Man is a modern and fresh fragrance with a combination of aromatic, fruity and woody notes. It’s a popular choice for a man with a sharp sense of style and confidence.”
This is a truly modern oriental floral fragrance. It opens with fresh notes of pink pepper and pink guava mousse that make for a captivating introduction to a floral heart of black iris. Warm and sensual vanilla, sandalwood and amber round out the base for sophistication and intrigue.
This particular scent is exclusive to Priceline. Meaghan has nominated it as her perfect summer scent. We tend to agree.
