Perfumes Deals Roundup – October 2017

In this month’s enabling post AKA a roundup of perfumes that I think are a good deal, I focused on “heavier” scents/notes that I start to crave in the fall. These are a mix of spicy scents and vampy orientals.

Natori perfume

1.  Natori by Natori EDP – So, this bad mama has been discontinued and this angers me. It’s such a great plummy floriental-chypre in a beautiful bottle. It’s vampy with a glamorous Old Hollywood vibe. Anyway, it’s dirt cheap right now so get a bottle while you… Continue reading | 4 Comments
