Designer fragrances for a taste of luxury in your life
I'll be honest: I’ve had a tab on my phone open to the new-season Ganni boots for the better part of a month, but I’ve also accepted that they’re probably never making it to checkout stage. Truth be told, they’re a little out of my disposable income price range and I can’t in good conscience actually prioritise retail over rent, desire be damned. But despite trying to stay financially sound, when I’m lusting after something luxe I still find myself edging toward embracing the ‘treat yourself’ mentality. So, on the days I’m dying to purchase a piece that my bank account definitely won’t thank me for, I steer myself straight to the scent shelves instead (stealing a longing glance at the shoe section on the way). Yep, if you’re looking to add some lush labels into your life without completely breaking your budget, a perfume is a purchase that’s gentler on the purse strings but also counts as a decadent designer buy. They’re definitely still within splurge territory, but they don’t come close to the price tags you’d find on their clothing or accessory counterparts. Here are the drops we suggest splashing your cash on if you’re looking to up your collections’ brand name quota.
