As much as we love Black Friday, we have to admit that even we find it a bit overwhelming at times. Which retailer has the best offers? When should I start shopping? And most importantly – what exactly is worth buying? Because, let’s face it – we’ve all been guilty of buying unnecessary things just because they were marked down – like gym equipment we can’t quite assemble/clothing we’ll never wear/the wrong colour foundation.
This year, however, we’ll be buying more mindfully, purchasing only what we’ll actually love. And one purchase we can guarantee will be buyers’ remorse-free is a beautiful fragrance – so if you’ve got your eye (or nose) on a scent, there’s no better time to buy than now with all of the Black Friday perfume deals.
Fragrance is one of those gifts – whether to yourself or somebody else – that just makes everyone smile. Whether you’re searching for a Christmas gift for your mum, your sister, flat mate or best friend, a fragrance (that you know they like) is one of the best fail-safe options out there. And since most perfumes can get kind of pricey, Black Friday is the perfect time to buy. A whole load of our favourite retailers are treating us to Black Friday perfume deals this year – and we like the smell of that.
LookFantastic and Amazon have significant perfume discounts, whilst department stores like Selfridges have also added fragrances to their Black Friday specials. With savings of more than 10% on ‘It’ perfume brands like Le Labo and Maison Margiela, these are deals not worth missing.
Since all our Black Friday fragrance shopping is being done from our phones and laptops, our one piece of advice is to make sure you buy a scent that you know you – or the recipient – will love. Whether it’s a scent you’ve been wearing for years or one you tested a while ago and have been dying to treat yourself to, there’s no quicker way to lift your mood than spritzing yourself with a scent. So what are our top picks for fragrances this Black Friday?
If you thought designer perfumes below the £50 mark were an urban legend, this Black Friday week, think again. Marc Jacobs’ Daisy – an absolute classic that reminds everyone of summer – and Dior’s Miss Dior – a floral wave of femininity – will both fit your budget and smell incredible. If you’re looking to splash a bit more cash on something special, you can’t go wrong with a TOM FORD perfume. Black Orchid is one of the brand’s bestselling fragrances, and for good reason; it has everyone’s favourite notes such as bergamot, patchouli and plum.
You could also really treat yourself with Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Baccarat Rouge 540 – ya know, the one that everyone’s wearing.
If you’re looking to score a classic scent in the Black Friday fragrance sales, you’re in luck. Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium is on sale for less than £40 and Viktor & Rolf’s signature scent, Flowerbomb is also included in our round-up.
