"No elegance is possible without perfume. It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory..."
- Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel
In the words of Gabrielle Chanel herself, fragrance is the ultimate accessory, and I must admit, I totally agree! I have been a fan of fine perfume since being a teenager, and because of this I buy a lot for myself as a treat, and as the festive season approaches, I will be buying a lot for gifting. As the month rolls on and we get ever closer to December, its probably a good time to think about Christmas gifting, either for friends and family, or buying treats for yourself. Why? because all the good Christmas offers are now starting to become available, and next week on Friday 29th November most stores will be taking part in Black Friday, kicking off the winter shopping season. Notino, who are one of my favourite brands for perfume and fine fragrance, will be hosting many offers on selected brands and lots of gifts as a bonus too!Not only can you get some amazing offers this season at Notino with their Black Friday Perfume Deals , they are also offering a new engraving feature where you can give your loved ones a personalised gift!
Have your fragrance, lipstick, or makeup palette laser-engraved with a unique text that expresses how much the recipient means to you (or have it done for yourself!) with Notinos Engraving Service. An engraved beauty product or perfume can be a fantastic reminder of your time together, your memories and wishes so it could be a very sentimental and treasured gift. You could have their name, initials, your child’s birthday, a birthday wish, a declaration of love or even a wedding proposal, it’s up to you. Your only restrictions are your imagination and the character limit! An amazing feature that would make a fantastic gift, but which fragrance would you choose for your engraving?
A favourite scent of mine that is available to personalise at Notino is Lancôme La Vie Est Belle. This fragrance really cheers me up, and I wear it whenever I feel like I need a good smile or giggle. Its a sweet fruity, floral fragrance, but its not childlike, its very sophisticated. The scent seems bubbly to me, and is perfect for cocktails with the girls or a special night out. La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum starts with a juicy essence of blackcurrant and sweet pear with stunning hints of rare iris in the heart of the composition. Its also listed as having silky jasmine and magical orange blossom. The base of the fragrance is made up of the unique Tonka bean, delicate praline, exotic patchouli and gourmand vanilla. All mixed together and you have a fabulous and fun fragrance. A good pick for a girlfriend, bestfriend, or perhaps for yourself. Once again, if you opt to get it engraved, it will make the luxury gift even more special. This piece is personalised on the front of the bottle towards to bottom.
Another fragrance that's in my collection is Calvin Klein Euphoria Eau de Parfum. To me this is a very sensual fragrance, which you could possibly pick up on from the name. The scent has a distinctive aroma of pomegranate, which gradually blends with the floral heart of the fragrance. Think soft lotus and dominant black orchid with a combination of delicate violets, animal musk, amber and mahogany wood. This would certainly be a date night scent, or perhaps a fragrance for a passionate woman. The bottle is also striking with its silver metal detailing and cheeky pops of purple glass, it was apparently designed to look like an orchid in bloom. Did you also know that this fragrance was nominated for best luxury perfume of the year? and it won the prestigious FIFI award? Certainly one to have in your collection. As for engraving, this piece is personalised on the very sleek looking silver topper.
All the fragrances above are avalible to have personalised, along with many other products, such as make-up compacts and lipsticks, so check out the Notino site to have a look at their extensive range.
As for black friday, I have my credit card ready to indulge in all the offers, do you?
