Can’t decide on a Perfume?

30 Nov

Everyone sometimes has trouble choosing a perfume because let’s face it: there are way to many options out there, and they keep coming out with new fragrances every month. As I’m browsing the Sephora website I saw that they have these exclusive sampler sets. The set on the right includes ten best selling fragrances from Sephora like Juicy Couture and Dior. This set costs $75 and the best part about it is that it includes a voucher for a full size perfume. Continue reading

Ways to get FREE Samples

29 Nov

One way to get free samples is to go into a store like Macy’s or Sephora and ask them to give you sample of a perfume of you choice. Most likely they will fill up a little sampler tube and write down the name for you. As mentioned in an earlier post you can’t keep coming back for samples without buying anything as the sale associates will probably catch onto what you are doing. Continue reading

Perfume Ad Banned

23 Nov

Talking a bit more about perfume ads, I want to focus on the recent ad that was pulled in the UK.

This is the ad, the perfume is by Marc Jacobs and it features teen actress Dakota Fanning. They say that this ad resembles more teen porn than teen chic, just because she is resting the rather large floral perfume bottle in between her legs. I on the other hand don’t find this ad sexual at all. She is fully dressed, her facial expression is Continue reading

Perfume Print Ads

20 Nov

Almost all magazine and print ads for perfume have a famous person as their spokesperson, or the perfume is actually created by them. I’m not sure if this is supposed to entice the consumer to buy these products but I have noticed the huge similarities that all perfumes have. Continue reading

Perfume- The Story of a Murderer.

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (film)Perfume

When thinking about books and movies that focuses on perfume, only one book comes to mind. I read this a couple years ago in it’s original language. The book is called “Perfume- Story of a Murderer“, while the original book is written in German and is called “Das Parfum“. The movie came out a year after I finished reading the book, but of course the film did the book no justice. The whole book focuses on you using your sense of smell, like the main character does.

Chanel Names their New Perfume ‘Jersey’

5 Nov

When I hear the word ‘Jersey‘, I automatically think about Jersey Shore, a show about Americanized Italians that like to fist pump and get drunk every night. There is nothing classy about this show at all, but when I think about Chanel that is the first thing that pops into my mind: classy! So I find it kind of odd that they would name their new Perfume “Jersey”. It is described as “relaxed chic with a dash of liberation.” Continue reading
