    Designer scented candles

    Designer perfumes have been so popular for many years that we now have designer scented candles as an extension of our luxury scents.

    Many of us already reach for our favourite perfume scent every morning. It’s part of our wardrobe and routine around getting dressed.

    Whether you work in an office, at a restaurant or in a beauty salon, there is always a place for wearing a scent.

     

    Some like their favourite fragrance so much that they extend it into their homes by buying a candle with the same notes.

    With so many great candles on the market and online today, we have such a variety to choose from and they make great gifts too for any occasion.

     

    T lights

    Unscented T lights work well if you just want to make the home feel cosy during the winter months.

    There are also scented candles that smell of lemongrass, apples and vanilla for that touch of fruit and sweetness in the home.

     

    Celebrity influenced

     

    We know that celebrities have branched out in many directions when it comes to the beauty world.

    Anything from skin care, make up and perfumes and now we have designer scented candles.

    As previously discussed in my articles celebrity endorsed perfumes and celebrity skincare, we see the fragrance industry sky rocket and continue to be just as popular today.

     

    Cheaper alternatives

    Many shops are jumping at the chance to sell top designer candles such as Jo Malone at cheaper prices. Candles that smell identical to the designer perfumes.

    Aldi has already seen shoppers hustling in on their own range of Jo Malone for just £9.99.

    A 200g candle from their home collection, Oud & Bergamot.

    This would normally set you back £62 if bought from the Jo Malone website.

    One may question why you would buy a £62 candle when you can purchase the same scent for £9.99.

    With a burn time of 45 hours compared to 60 hours for the Aldi brand, another difference is the size of the candle.

    Compare Jo Malone 200g candle Aldi’s 700g, 3-wick version and it’s not just the price that catches the eye.

    We all know that if we purchase any product from a designer website, we will be paying the higher price.

    This leaves us looking at more affordable options so let’s see where we can shop for some of the best designer scented candles.

    The best summer fragrances for women

    Summer is finally here so if you’re looking for a fragrance, what are the best summer fragrances for women?

    The hot season, whether its’s here in the UK or abroad, requires a more subtle fragrance on the skin.

     

    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    Any scent that is too strong or heavy in fragrance notes won’t sit nicely on the skin and will most certainly be off-putting for you as well as those around you.

    Popular fragrance notes for summer

    Orange blossom
    Mandarin
    Grapefruit
    Jasmine
    Peony
    Tuberose
    Coconut
    Apple
    The best summer fragrances for women

     

    All the above fragrance notes speak ‘summer’ and ‘delicate scents’.

    During the heat, we wear lighter clothing so it makes sense to wear a lighter fragrance.

    There are lots of options to wearing a lighter scent when it comes to perfumes and fragrances.

     

    Body sprays for a lighter option

    Body sprays as we have previously discussed work very well when it’s hot. They instantly cool the skin down as well with their delicate mist.

    I have reached for my FM no.20 body mist over the past few weeks when we have seen temperatures read as high as 32 degrees.

    It felt far too hot to be wearing a perfume, especially as our own brand contain 20% pure perfume oil for a longer lasting fragrance.

    EDT is a great option too as these will give off just as good a fragrance but without so much longevity.

    Some women don’t feel fully dressed without a spritz of their favourite scent so having other options is of great benefit.

    If you’re a lover of fragrances, then you will already know just how many there are to choose from.

    It can be very overwhelming, especially if you usually purchase your favourite bottle from the perfume department stores.

    An overlay of scent whilst you try on several brands can give headaches and put you off from buying any.

    We like to have the option to try before we buy, especially if we’re looking for something new and different to our usual smell.

     

    Samples are available to try

    You can try samples before you make a purchase at FM World. Check out our shop here.

    The perfect scents to choose are those that have base notes of the summer scents.

    You don’t want to choose one that smells like summer with its first spray and then has heavy notes as the day goes on.

    By choosing perfumes and scents that have delicate base notes allows for that scent to stay subtle and soft throughout the day without feeling overpowering for you or anyone who walks past.

     

    Let’s take a look at some of the popular fragrance scents that are suitable for the hotter weather.

    1. Crystal Noir- Versace

    Versace launched this fragrance in 2004 with many saying that it was the perfect scent for strolls along the beach.

    Sitting nicely in the flower family of scents, Versace has created the perfect perfume to compliment summer with some of its delicate notes including coconut, orange blossom and musk.

    We automatically feel a summer vibe whenever we smell coconut.

    2. Coco Mademoiselle-Chanel

    It goes without saying that Chanel certainly creates some of the best fragrances that we see online and in the stores today.

    From the iconic Chanel no.5 to this little gem.

    With a mixture of exotic summer scents in this gorgeous fragrance, we find ourselves instantly transported to the beautiful sea coasts, a quaint taverna and evening strolls with a beautiful blend of summer scents.

    Already sitting in the fruit and floral fragrance family, you will get an instant whiff of fruits, vanilla, white floral and citrus notes. Have you tried FM World’s body spray no 20 that has similar fragrance notes ? Take a look here.

    3. Daisy-Marc Jacobs

     

    Another popular scent that I feel it suitable for all year round and has the most delightful design of bottle is Daisy.

    This perfume was launched in 2007 and has been popular ever since.

    You really do get a feel of fruit and summer with its combination of strawberry, jasmine, vanilla, musk and ruby red grapefruit notes.

    Pop those notes into a bowl and they would make the perfect fruit salad I’m sure!

    It is a perfume that instantly gives a feminine and romantic vibe that can be worn with confidence all year round.

    The wonderful bottle design fits in perfectly with a summer holiday and is a real head turner.

    4. La Vie Est Belle-Lancôme

     

     

    There won’t be many women that haven’t hard of this beautiful scent. With the ever so beautiful Julia Roberts fore fronting such a fragrance since its release in 2012.

    The TV advert reaches our screens every Christmas and certainly makes this scent and bottle memorable.

    A wonderful combination of fragrance notes that no one can resist.

    Black current, pear, orange blossom, vanilla, patchouli and tonka bean notes give this delightful perfume its huge popularity.

    Based on the concept of natural beauty and charm, with another bottle showing off a classy and elegant design bottle.

    5. Flower bomb -Victor & Rolf

     

    Another beautiful scent that is suitable for summer is the wonderful Flower Bomb. Launched in 2005, this distinguished bottle and scent will be found on many women’s dressing tables.

    Popular fragrance notes of jasmine, rose, musk, vanilla and patchouli, gives this scent a real feel for summer and the warmer weather.

    As soon as the top notes hit your nose, there is an instant whiff of sweetness and the vanilla scent pops through alongside the musk and rose.

    Pretty summer dresses and a glass of bubbly set the perfect mood with a touch of this spray on the skin.

    6. Good Girl Gone Bad- Killian

    With an instant smell of rose and amber, this popular fragrance is the perfect fit for a summer holiday. It boosts fruits and a touch of spice to give a real sense of the summer holiday season.

    Another scent to be launched in 2012, Killian has created a fruity and floral gem and as the top notes leave you, there is a wonderful scent of freshness and beach wave memories.

    A popular scent for many women with its feminine and elegant notes. Definitely one to try.

    7. Cool Water Woman-Davidoff

    If you love the smell of fresh air, a summer breeze and the saltiness of the waves crashing over your toes then Davidoff has created the perfect scent to transport you to your next destination abroad.

    This bottle oozes a freshness of lemons, citrus vibes and fruit to give a wonderful scent of nature and beauty.

    Created in 2018, it’s perhaps one of those perfumes that has gone unnoticed in the past and there may be many women who have yet to try it.

    Once the initial top notes have settled down, you are left with a familiar scent of the male version Cool Water. I was very much a fan of the male scent as it wasn’t heavy and had a masculine approach, whilst keeping its scent delicate and clean.

    8. Orange Blossom-Jo Malone

     

     

    This 2003 scent is suitable for both men and women even though it sits in the floral family.

    Being a light fragrance, it is suitable for any occasion with its great balance of fragrance to suit as a gender neutral scent.

    Fragrances notes of mandarin, jasmine, rose, lily and neroli see this perfume gives an instant burst of freshly squeezed clementine oranges.

    A real sense of summer pops through and after the orange has subsided, there is a hint of lemon mixed with flowers to keep the summer feel going.

    It smells of romance and dusky nights sitting by the water watching the sun set.

    Orange Blossom-Jo Malone

     

    9. J’adore -Dior

    If you’re looking for a perfume that instantly smells like the fresh fruit you have bought from the supermarket, Dior’s fragrance is packed with summer fruits.

    Launched in 1999, J’adore boosts fragrance notes of melon, pear, peach, mandarin, orange, bergamot, vanilla, blackberry, plum and violet.

    Perhaps too sweet for some with such a combination of fruits in one bottle but definitely worth a try.

    French for “I love”, this perfume sees Charlize Theron advertising its beauty since its launch.

    10. So Scandal!-Jean Paul Gaultier

     

    This perfume has a wonderfully designed bottle with a slender pair of women’s legs showing on the perfume cap as if she has fallen in to this beautiful scent. Sexual, feminine and a touch of mystery.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive

    If you’re looking for affordable perfumes that smell expensive, we have an insight into the best fragrances.

    Everyone loves a bargain and getting value for money.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive

    The perfume world continues to sour every year with such a variety of fragrances.

    Celebrity endorsed, copies of designer scents, own shop brands and perfumes that contain similar notes to that of the designers.

    At FM World, there is a huge selection of perfumes and aftershaves that suit any budget.

    There’s nothing good about wearing a perfume or aftershave that smells cheap.

    Heavy scents can linger for hours as well as very weak scents not lasting as long as we’d like.

    Many of us will reach for the designer bottles because they are known and trusted to us.

    When the fragrance has a celebrity endorser too, this makes the product more appealing even though it can be a little expensive.

    The market has and will always have designer brands being sold for cheap. These are usually fake and should be avoided.

    Read our article on why buying cheap perfume will cost you more.

    Scent matters

    We like to have the best of both worlds. A fragrance that has a pleasant and suitable scent, long-lasting and kind to the purse strings or wallet.

    Some will wait for a special occasion before purchasing the designer scents or purchase at the Duty Free for a small discount.

    What about when you want to purchase your favourite scent without having to wait for these occasions ?

    There will be many places online that sell designer scents that are fitting to people’s budgets but there are other options.

    At FM World, they have created their own unique scents for men and women.

    A large range of fragrances to suit everyone’s budget without compromising on the quality or longevity of their scents.

    How can they do this ?

    We already know that perfumes and aftershaves are made up from perfume oil, alcohol and fragrance notes but what makes a perfume so expensive ?

    In my previous article I cover why some designer perfumes have a big price tag.

    The unique way that FM World have created their own scents and kept them affordable isn’t complicated.

     

    Celebrities are constantly endorsing the latest fragrances and we see the advert, usually around Christmas, where that particular bottle is being advertised by a top actress, model or film star.

    This page contains affiliate links. Should you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive compensation.

     

    It’s a very clever way of getting a product in front of the customer and a large audience at that.

    FM World saw an opportunity to create beautiful fragrances that both men and women can enjoy and be able to afford.

    Not just on special occasions, but regular purchasing once their favourite scent had been used and needed replacing.

    Customers are able to do this as well as having a selection of their favourite scents to choose from and having the option to wear a different one every day if they desired.

    Having no middle man, TV advertising or sales people advertising their brand means that they can keep costs to a minimum whilst still creating beautiful scents that customers are familiar with.

    The perfume world has seen such names as Tom Ford and Jo Malone scents become very popular of late along with the likes of the iconic Chanel, Paco Rabanne and Lancôme still dominating the perfume industry.

    We could potentially pay anything from £70- £120 for such high profile scents.

    Whilst there will indeed be many that will happily pay such a price for their perfume or aftershave, a lot of what we are purchasing is around the packaging, the celebrity endorser and the TV advert.

     

    Can we really buy our favourite scent cheaper?

    No one likes cheap perfume and aftershave.

    It often has a different smell, doesn’t last for the duration that we hope for and in some cases where a product has been ‘copied’, you’re dealing with fake packaging and fake liquids in a fake bottle.

     

    An affordable range at FM World

     

    FM fragrances for men and women don’t compromise on quality even though they do has a more affordable price tag.
    As previously covered, Fm use perfume oil from a company called DROM.
    DROM also provide perfume oil for the designer perfumes and aftershaves that we see on our shelves and online today.
    When customers ask about our fragrances, we advise that FM scents have very similar fragrance notes to that of the designer perfumes.

    We use a fragrance wheel to determine what type of fragrance notes the customer particularly likes.

    Floral, oriental, woody, citrus etc.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive

     

    Once we learn the type of fragrance notes that a customer likes, this will enable us to narrow down a selection of perfumes or aftershave that contain those fragrance notes that the customer likes.

    For example, if a customer likes fruity scents then we has a selection of perfume fragrances that contain fruity notes.

    When the customer try’s a sample which are available to purchase from our online store here, this will give them the chance to try the scent on the skin to see if it is a fit for them.

     

     

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive
    FM have over 200 perfume and aftershave samples to choose from

     

    We always recommend that a fragrance should be tried on the skin and left for a couple of minutes as this will determine if that fragrance is suitable for that particular person.

    We all wear fragrances differently and what suits one person wouldn’t necessarily suit another.

    It is great that we have the option these days to try fragrances before we purchase, especially if we do steer towards the expensive perfumes.

    Many perfume stores and departments will spray the perfume on a test paper strip for you to try.

    Whilst this is okay to get an initial test of the fragrance, this won’t determine what the fragrance smells like on your skin.

    It is much better and more effective to try directly on the skin to get a proper feel and smell of your new scent before you make a purchase.

    Samples are a great way to try a new fragrance before you purchase

    Similar fragrance notes

    All fragrances that FM sell has very similar notes to the designer fragrances.

    If a customer has a favourite perfume scent such as Coco mademoiselle by Chanel then we can look on our perfume list to see what perfume is very similar to that designer perfume.

    We can’t sell a bottle of Coco mademoiselle to a customer because we don’t sell it. Our fragrance bottles are numbered and are in their own bottles and packaging.

    Fm haven’t copied any of the designers. Simply by using similar fragrance notes to that of the designer fragrances, gives FM perfumes a very similar and familiar scent to what we already know.

    Our range of quality fragrances

    In our range we have PURE and PURE ROYAL selection. We also has a UTIQUE range.
    All of our fragrances contain either 20% or 30% perfume oil. 30% is our INTENSE range.
    Shop here for our collection.
    Many designer fragrances are Eau De Toilette scents and therefore they won’t last as long as an Eau de parfum because their perfume oil has been diluted down.
    At FM, we can afford to use 20% pure perfume.
    The reason behind this is that we have no celebrity endorser, we don’t have anyone advertising our product on TV and we don’t have any sales assistance in the shops selling it either.

    Giving the customer what they want

    By cutting out the middleman in our manufacturing, we can provide the customer with a quality perfume or aftershave that will last around eight hours if the 20% perfume range is bought.

    By purchasing the 30% pure perfume range, will mean that your fragrance will last even longer. A great choice for a longer- lasting scent.

    Read here on the tips of how to get the best out of your fragrance.

    Celebrity fragrances- Paco Rabanne-1 Million

    I mentioned about popular celebrity fragrances that are around at the moment.

    Let’s take a look at Paco Rabanne1 million.

    Affordable perfumes that smell expensive
    The Paco Rabanne scent is pure class. Distinguished, unique and popular with both men and women

     

    A very popular scent for men that could set you back around £70 if you were to purchase from stores such as Superdrug.

    Although you are likely to get a 100mil bottle for this price, it is an Eau de Toilette spray so will last around 4-6 hours.

    The fragrance notes in this perfume consist of fresh grapefruit, mandarin and peppermint alongside rose absolute, cinnamon bark and mask. The base has an ultra masculine leather scent.

    FM has a very similar scent to that of Paco Rabanne1 million which falls in the oriental notes family.

     

    Compare the notes to FM199 PURE ROYAL ( our inspired fragrance) and you will see that they are very similar but not the same.

     

    Type: rich, multi-threaded Fragrance notes:

    Head: Italian mandarin, peppermint

    Heart: cinnamon, Turkish rose, cardamom

    Base: leather note

    Saving you money on the things you love

    For a 50m bottle, you will get 20% pure fragrance oil and an affordable price tag of just £27.50.

    Another great fact with some of our fragrances is that other products in the same scent can be purchased too.

    With FM 199 fragrance, we has a refreshing aftershave lotion and an aftershave balm to compliment their perfume.

     

    When there is a scent that has similar notes to the designer scents at an affordable price, it’s no wonder that FM World is in its 13th year celebrating such mastery in the fragrance world.

    You get to smell gorgeous, with a long-lasting scent that has similar notes to your favourite expensive brand and the best thing is that your friends won’t tell the difference.

    What’s even more wonderful is that the company allow anyone over the age of sixteen to create a FREE account. A great opportunity to save on perfumes and aftershaves by buying at cost price. Sign up here for the UK.

    Celebrity skin care products

    Just like celebrity endorsed perfumes, celebrity skin care products are also popular.

    It’s a well-known fact that celebrities have been endorsing perfumes for several years now.

    Celebrity skin care products

     

    As a nation, we are very much influenced by products that are available online and in the shops that have a celebrity backing to them.

    It’s a way of giving us confidence in making such a purchase when we know that a well-known celebrity is behind the product.

    Supporting the influencers

    Imagine this. Your friend that lives down the street from you starts to make a business creating soaps.

    You are all for it in the beginning and supportive and perhaps they give you some of their products for free to try on yourself.

    They start creating more products as their business starts to get a little busier and then they start trying to sell you the same product that you recently received for free.

    We are all too familiar with the memes online that show a person such as your friend starting a new business or being successful in their interview and being offered the job.

    They announce it to all of their followers on Facebook and get 25 likes and 10 comments on their post.

    As we scroll down our news feed, we then see a celebrity that has endorsed the latest fragrance.

    Somehow they have received over 3000 likes and over 100 comments.

    It is very much a case of those that have influenced us over a long period of time will always win the majority of votes.

    Of course, we don’t know the celebrities personally yet we are willing to support them in new ventures.

    We will happily pay more often than not, a high price for the latest perfume or cosmetic product.

    More than we usually would for our usual and more affordable Rimmel or L’Oréal brands.

     

    The power of the celebrity status

    It may even be a product we don’t particularly want or need but because of the celebrity endorser behind it, this is enough to entice us to part with our money.

    I very much doubt we will ever see a break in this cycle as long as there are celebrities to influence us.

    Celebrities also know that there will be customers that they have influence over.

    So there is never any question about if their product will sell enough quantities of in order to keep it on the shelves.

    Alongside endorsing perfumes and aftershaves, many celebrities also have their own skincare range.

    We often look at celebrities, especially women, who seem to look perfect in every way. Gorgeous glowing skin and full of radiance. What’s their secret ?

    We question what products they’re using in order for us to benefit in looking as radiant as they do.

     

    Celebrity skin care products

    Many celebrities don’t actually look their age and perhaps this is not just part of the products they are using but the kind of lifestyle that they live too.

     

    A healthy lifestyle also plays a part in our exterior

    Personal trainers, healthier and more expensive food, no money worries and drinking tons of water. It all plays a part in how well we grow old and if we do grow old gracefully.

    Just the same as fragrances, celebrities don’t always wear the product that they endorse. They simply like the scent or the way their skin feels by using certain products.

    Like the public, celebrities are also influenced by the texture of a product, the smell and how it makes them feel when using it.

    Added to the fact that the majority of the celebrities have a make up artist to assist when they appear on TV shows, concerts and TV adverts etc.

    Let’s take a look at some of the skin care products that are used by celebrities.

     

    Jennifer Aniston

    American actress, producer and spokesperson for Aveeno, a skin care company that work closely with skin conditions such as eczema, sensitive, dry and itchy skin and uses natural ingredients.
    Jennifer drinks tons of water as part of her skin care. She has also benefited from good genes when it comes to no wrinkles as she has aged, from her father and grandmother.

    Jennifer washes her face with Neutrogena facial cleansing bar and the Aveeno positively radiant daily moisturiser. She uses the Aveeno daily moisturising lotion which is hydrating for the skin.

    Charlize Theron

    Being the face behind such an iconic perfume as J’adore, Charlize is no exception when it comes to beautiful glowing skin.
    Interesting to also learn that she always wear a spritz of perfume before she leaves the house and her ‘slice of luxury’.
    Charlize wears sunscreen protector and La Prairie Cellular Radience Emulsion which would set you back a few hundred dollars.

    Alongside eating a healthy diet, attending Pilates classes and having a morning and nightie routine, Charlize also uses a rejuvenating serum by Mila Moursi and a moisturizing cream by La Mer called Crème de la Mer.
    Add in regular facials and you have yourself a beautiful glowing skin.

    Gwyneth Paltrow

    The American actress and businesswoman is a lover of exfoliating every day and uses a product by Goop.

    Another product by the same brand is Goop Glow morning skin superpower which is a food supplement packed with vitamin C and antioxidants.

    Another celebrity in favour of an oil based serum, Gwyneth uses Vintner’s Daughter which helps her dry skin and full of healing properties.

    Sunscreen seems to be a popular product for many of the celebrities as Gwyneth uses one by Coola called Mineral Cucumber Face.

    On the more affordable side is a product called Juice Beauty which is an instant eye lift algae mask.

     

    Selena Gomez

    Starting her career at the tender age of just seven, Selena also sings and has her one line of make up called Rare Beauty which she gives one percent of the profit to mental health awareness to support a charity following her own struggles with mental health.

    Moisturiser is definitely a top product when it comes to the celebrities skin care routine.

    Selena uses a rich moisturiser called the Dewy Skin Cream by Tatcha. Due to its thick consistency, you don’t need to use much.

    Sometimes an overlooked factor when it comes to great skin and a great skincare routine is to remember to remove all traces of make up before going to bed.

    Selena is one of those women who sticks by this routine because her skin can break out in spots easily.

    Suffering from lupus, Selena knows the importance of keeping her skin looking fresh so she applies sunscreen every day.

    For this, she uses the Umbra Sheer Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30.

    From her Rare Beauty range she also uses a set mist which is a 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist, before applying foundation.

     

    Emma Watson

    Another lady who has been in the spotlight since she was young and winning one of the leading roles in the Harry Potter films, Emma takes care of her skin too.

    One of her go to products on a daily basis is a product called Cheek and Lip Stain by The Body Shop.

    Celebrity skin care products

    As part of her routine she always washes her face at night and keep her routine with cleanse, tone and moisturise before going to bed.

    Suffering with dry skin, Emma reaches out for a product called Evolue Firming Toner. It has minimal alcohol so it doesn’t make her face sting.

    She also exfoliates once a week using an exfoliator by Evolue called Resurfacing Grains.

     

    Holly Willoughby

    Holly is no stranger to the spotlight and always looks the part whether she is on TV or very natural looking on an Instagram post with her family.
    One of her favourite products is a facial spray hitting the top of her list. The one she uses is called Beauty Elixir  By Caudalie.
    Celebrity skin care products
     “It zings you” she said to ‘HELLO!’™️ magazine.
    Holly has also been known to use Total Repair Cream by Kate Somerville for her Dancing On Ice shows.

    This anti-aging cream hydrates and deeply moisturises to give a firm and smooth texture to the skin, whilst diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

    Another favourite product that Holly uses is the Eyebright™️ Soothing Eye Cleanser by Liz Earl.

    Above all, eating well, keeping active, drinking lots of water and being content and happy are the top key priorities.
    Good skin comes from within as well as in our genes. Products assist with the good that we already have so taking care of the inside will benefit and show on the outside.

    Celebrity endorsed perfumes

    We see celebrity endorsed perfumes everywhere. Online and on the high street. So when did it all start?

    Back in 1987, Elizabeth Taylor first started the trend when she herself launched her perfume called Passion.

    The first celebrity to begin the endorsement trend

    This wasn’t her first fragrance either. She created her signature fragrance called White Diamonds in 1991 but the success came with the release of Passion 3 years earlier and became one of the best -selling fragrances of all time.

     

    Surprisingly, Passion isn’t expensive to purchase as you may think.

    With such an iconic celebrity at the forefront of this trend, it wasn’t long before the likes of Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston and Beyoncé became just some celebrities who saw a market and a platform for following in her footsteps.

     

     

    It’s a well-known fact that having a celebrity behind their own perfume is going to help massively with perfume sales.

     

     

    Do men and women simply purchase a designer fragrance because of the name behind it?

     

     

    Perhaps they did a few years ago but these days it’s not just the name behind the brand that matters. After all, there’s little point in purchasing a Beyoncé fragrance just because such a music icon is behind its creation.

     

    We purchase perfumes for their fragrances notes and longevity too.

    Women and men need to like the scent in order to wear it. It’s a waste of money if the bottle is going to sit in the wardrobe and never be worn.

    It’s not just perfume either that celebrities have endorsements on.

    Anything from clothing, jewellery and hand bags all have a touch of celebrity attached.

    Items that are endorsed by famous people will sell much quicker too. It’s a very clever marketing strategy and one that has been around for many years.

    Celebrity endorsed products

    When a celebrity endorses a product, this gives scope for the product to reach a larger audience and therefore making more sales.
    When we see a perfume that has been endorsed by Beyoncé for example, it immediately gives the buyer confidence in their purchase as the person behind the brand is well-known.
    Having such an iconic celebrity also makes the product more appealing.
    Have you noticed how attractive the celebrities are who endorse products ? It makes it more enchanting.

    Buying a well-known perfume

    Purchasing a perfume from a celebrity has a positive impact on the buyer and when they wear the fragrance created by their favourite singer/celebrity, it instantly gives confidence.
    The consumer also feels more important because they are wearing such a fragrance.
    Whenever we see a perfume being advertised on the TV, it will always have a famous face in the commercial.
