I fell in love with a new perfume the other day!
But $135 for 2.5 oz??
Please understand that I don’t normally wear Designer Imposters or whatever is stocked at Dollar Tree. I’m used to paying around $80 for a bottle, but it’s generally a larger bottle.
Does anyone else wear this? If so, have you had any luck finding it cheaper? I need my fix, but that could buy four people’s dinner at my wedding!

I wear Channel #5 which is ungodly expensive so I understand. I wear it sparingly and IMO you use much less of it so I can justify splurging once a year on a bottle. I figure this is your special day and out of all the cash you are putting out $135 isn’t really that bad, treat yourself and go for it.

Used to work in the “biz”:) Creed is an amazing brand. It also contains ambergris, among other ingredients and it’s basically really rare, really expensive whale vomit. Lol
But it is super yummy-smelling. And Chanel, well they still grow their own special roses in a special area of the French countryside that is exclusive that hybrid only. So, you are paying for the distillation of the essence of real roses.
Totally worth it when you consider all the crappy synthetic fragrances out there

In my hometown there was a body store which could replicate different perfumes. They had hundreds of essential oils and fragrances you could mix up to create your own stuff. Do you have anything like that? Like PutABirdOnIt said, you might not be getting the highest quaity ingredients, but you could try it as a more economical substitute.

I totally feel your pain, only I’ve been lusting after Love in Black. I will likely end up splurging on it for the wedding, as I’ve been wanting it for awhile now. There’s really no better time than your wedding day for it!! 🙂
