Now celebrity perfumes are usually not my thing. I don’t know what it is about them but I find it very rare if there’s one I like. Obviously, there are a couple of classics from when I was younger such as J-Lo ‘Glow’ and ‘live’ and the odd nice one from ol’ Christina Aguilera. However, not long ago I realised that I’m using my favourite perfumes on a daily basis. So this means that they’re being rinsed so quickly on things like work, and popping into town. (I told you I can’t leave the house without wearing perfume) So I decided that what I really need is a nice day time smell, one that I don’t mind using every day. I had a little look on allbeauty.com (formerly cheapsmells.com). This website is my fave when it comes to fragrance and beauty. It’s just so much cheaper than department stores and drug stores etc. Usually I would go and smell some perfumes in town or wherever I am, and then go online to buy it. But this time I had no idea what I wanted, I was going in blind. Such a risk!! I done a little bit of research on Google and it seemed as though Rihanna’s perfume ‘Rogue’ had some pretty good reviews. So allbeauty.com was offering this for £21.50 for EDP 125ml. I also went with Beyonce’s newest one Rise; purely because I couldn’t resist- And Queen B can do no wrong in my eyes! And Rise was £14.95 for EDP 100ml. Is this normal? I know this website is cheap, but seriously? So I thought I would give them a go, hesitantly may I add… They arrived really quickly like always and I was a bit sceptical of why they cost so little for such large bottles. But how surprised was I? Buying perfume that I have never smelt before is always a huge no-no., but I was pleasantly surprised. Rihanna’s Rogue has become a popular daily choice for me; it’s really light but kind of a mix between floral and spicy, and not to mention I have 125ml of it. I haven’t worn Rise as much as it’s a little bit heavier, but it is lovely and it reminds me of a much more expensive sort of smell. So all in all, glad I took the risk, and my dilemma has been solved!
P.S- I have come to terms with how hard it is to photograph perfume bottles 🙁
