As part of the #ScentSavings Collective Bias sponsored campaign, today I am talking to you about a great fragrance that is an affordable indulgence.
One of the things that I have learned in the past years is that beauty on a budget is totally possible. As an ex department store-only shopper, I can't believe how much I used to spend on not just cosmetics, but perfume and clothes too. It wasn't until my life drastically changed, that I had to reevaluate how much I was spending on those little splurges and learn to live on a budget. Now I have become a bit of an expert on finding good deals on good brands. Because even if I am on a tighter budget, it doesn't mean that I want to live without my favorite cosmetics and fragrances.
Enter Walmart. I already shop for a lot of mine and my daughter's makeup at Walmart, just like we do the majority of the household shopping there too. But I wasn't familiar with the fact that they also carry celebrity fragrances at the same Every Day Low Prices that Walmart is known for. I went to check it out and I was pleased with not just the selection but the prices! Fragrances by Nicki Minaj, Justin Beiber, Jennifer Aniston, Mariah Carey and more, can be found at really low prices. One of the best gift ideas is always fragrance and all this time I had no clue that all these celebrity brands were right under my nose!
I picked up a bottle of Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift, knowing that the girls would love it. I am a huge sucker for a nice presentation and when I opened this gold and purple box, I loved the bottle. The scent is very similar to my favorite fragrances and when all of the girls smelled it, they agreed it is just beautiful. The notes of Freesia, Green Tea, Apple Blossom, Raspberry, Dewberry and vanilla make the perfect combination of a floral and fruity scent that stays with you all day long. I have added Wonderstruck to my scent collection, momentarily because I know very soon one of them is going to ask for it. But while I have it I am going to take advantage and wear it a few times.
The celebrity fragrances at Walmart are such a good deal. This 1oz bottle cost only $29.99 which is a very affordable way to indulge in myself. Plus it's a great way to add a few smaller sized fragrances rather than one bigger and more expensive bottle. I love variety and this is going to make it easier to get a few more bottles and not make a dent in that beauty budget that I have to stick to.
Don't take my word for it though, next time you are in Walmart, go check it out for yourself. I hope you find a fragrance you love and give yourself or someone you love, a great little gift!
When was the last time you splurged on a new fragrance?
