We all have our favourite perfume that we come back to time and again, but chances are your eyes probably water at the price every time you invest in a new bottle.
While premium brands can sometimes start at a minimum of three figures, many retailers stock their own-brand perfume ranges for budget prices. However, so many of these lack on the quality of ingredients and the staying power you get from a high-end blend.
Luckily, trustworthy M&S have come up with the solution – an affordable perfume with a beautiful, long lasting scent that doesn’t cost the earth. Sold? Us too.
The perfume in question is the store’s Nectar & Jasmine Eau de Toilette and it has been receiving rave reviews since its release – in fact, 89 per cent of reviewers have said they would recommend it to a friend. And now is the perfect time to get it as it’s just gone on sale for the sweet price of £10, just in time for Mother’s Day.
The scent balances notes of fruity floral woods, beautiful jasmine petals and juicy nectar for a light and feminine scent that stays put for hours.
One customer said: ‘Amazing! The scent is sweet but not juvenile or cheap. Light for everyday. Its lasts too… I could still smell it the following day on my coat and jumper. Really lovely.’
Another wrote: ‘I was always skeptical with store brand fragrances, but came across this as I browse in one of the M&S shops – thought I’d have a go as love the fresh scent. At least 5 people have asked where can they get it.’
It’s a fresh, sparkling scent with a hint of fruitiness, an ideal perfume for spring, but if that’s not your bag then there are plenty other fragrances in the range, all of which have been reduced to £10 for the month of March for Mother’s Day. From Rose & Amber to Seasalt & Freesia and Mimosa & Bergamot, you’re bound to find a scent that suits your style. Happy spritzing!
