So last Thursday I headed down to the Perfume Shop Press day to view their amazing Christmas range and meet the team.
I can’t believe how much the perfume shop has actually evolved!! It has become a household brand and no longer considered as that ‘Discount Retailer’. I always saw it as the ‘Budget perfume shop’ but those days are long gone! I mean don’t get me wrong, their prices are still very competitive , however I don’t ever recall finding ‘Chanel’ or ‘Gucci’ being sold at the ‘Old Perfume Shop’ should I say. It’s interesting how you notice the evolution of brands over time.
I went through the range and tested out the scents of some of the brands they carry. It was simply perfume Heaven :) I also fell in love with Theirry Mugler once again (I mean can you blame me?) It’s just one of those scents that you always come back to, such a classic!
I also got to try out the new DKNY ‘Apple’ branded 'Delicious' perfumes. The Mango one really smells like Mango. The smells are really sweet and I think are great for the Spring/Summer season.
I also made some notes on what are some of their must buy’s this season and have listed it below, especially seen as people starting tweeting me and messaging me on what fragrance they should opt for as soon as I mentioned I was at the Perfume Shop press day on Twitter! That’s the power of 1 tweet!!!! (makes unbelievable face).
Reb’l Fleur by Rihanna EDP 50ml TPS Price £29.50
Rihanna’s debut scent is every bit as powerful and dramatic as the rebellious
R&B diva herself. A sizzling cocktail of scent, Reb’l Fleur by Rihanna embodies
the Barbadian beauty in every way. Top notes of rich, red berries, ripe peaches
and purple plums burst into a heart of tropical Hawaiian hibiscus flowers and
smooth coconut water that in turn spill over onto a dreamy base of musk and
vanilla. The captivating scent is encased in an ultimately glamorous and unique
bottle inspired by a stilleto heel, the shoe of choice for the lady herself and is
available online and in store at The Perfume Shop from 27th July.
