FREEBIES WITH FRAGRANCE
If you visit (in person) department stores like Debenhams, House of Fraser, John Lewis etc you have the added advantage of getting your hands on lots of testers – free of charge. You can work the floor and ask all the sales assistants for testers and enquire about which fragrances are currently offering a free gift – like bags.
Note: unless you’re buying a packages gift set, these extra freebies are not normally on display.
The last time I bought an ESCADA ‘Born in Paradise’ fragrance, the Debenhams sales assistant dug out this nice little bag from the bottom of a very deep draw!! The bag was actually linked to another ESCADA fragrance, but she let me have it anyway. I didn’t ask for this – so I felt like I’d struck lucky that day and have walked out of stores with other free bags since, when buying perfumes.
The bag is lightweight and feels like quilted soft leather – it’s strong and useful, great for storage, not to mention vibrant in gold and pink.
Not that I have any special allegiance to Debenhams, but they also do a beauty points card…you probably need to benefit from it!
Whenever you buy perfume, always ask for testers, they are fantastic whilst on holiday or away for the weekend – you don’t want to wear the same perfume all day every day, but you don’t want to weigh your luggage down with 10 bottles of perfume either!!
