Your Favorite Scents for Less
Never pay full price for fragrance again
-Paige Herman Axel
Yes, perfume is considered a luxury item, but it’s a necessity in my book. I understand that in these trying economic times smelling nice may take a back seat to essentials like, say, food, but you don’t have to pay full price for your signature fragrance.
I don’t recommend purchasing perfume in flea markets because you really don’t know if you’re getting the real thing, but everyone should check out BeautyEncounter.com. This amazing site sells sample bottles at a fraction of the retail price – think a scratched bottle of Thierry Mugler’s Anger for $35 and Chanel’s Allure with no cap for $85 – along with miniature sizes you can try for just $10 before committing to a full-size bottle. And if the free samples with every purchase and hard-to-find cult favorites like Bal a Versailles, Ombre Rose, Cuir de Lancome aren’t enough for you, maybe the jam-packed sections of hair, body, makeup and home products will be.
