THE MOST TALKED ABOUT FRAGRANCES IN YEAR 2020. ARE THEY WORTH IT?

Hello there,

Welcome back and if this is your first time here, kindly subscribe to my newsletter so you don’t miss a thing.

On today’s topic of “why are these fragrances so popular”?. If you know me or follow me on Instagram (@debralicious) you probably noticed that I talk about fragrance from time to time. PS ”smelling good is a business”.

Earlier this year I noticed so many influencers posted same fragrance on their feed. I thought it was an ad for Byredo , yes some were collaboration and some just jumped on the wagon. I was curious about the smell of the fragrance. Unfortunately/luckily I didn’t jump on the wagon until three weeks ago. I visited NK fragrance department in Gothenburg with a friend. I found out that Byredo have 58 different scents, that got me confused. I quickly went on Instagram to see which one the influencers posted the most. 90% of them posted “Byredo Ghost Mojave”. Sadly I wasn’t impressed and I hoped it would get better, cos I had a flu but it didn’t get any better.

The pros: The packaging is really good. The bottle is something different and looks very feminine.

The cons: The smell isn’t long lasting, it fades away after 30 minutes or so. It’s way too pricy, 130$ for 50ml and 200$ for 100 ml. I expected much more from the most hyped fragrance in year 2020. Maybe the other 57 bottles smells better but I won’t be trying them.

The next fragrance is another Swedish brand by Stora skuggan . This was only seen on the Swedish influencers feed, mainly because the brand doesn’t sell internationally. I decided to give it a try.

The pros: Nice package and the bottle is really beautiful. Long lasting scent

The cons: Awful scent, I didn’t like the scent at all. This fragrance is not for me. I felt old when I wore it, may be it’s something I will like when I turn 50,lol. Stora Skuggan have 4 other fragrances that I haven’t tried. Maybe just maybe sometime in the future I will try their other scents . Lastly, it is pricy. 120$ for 30ml. All the five fragrances all comes in 30ml.

The last Swedish fragrance on my list today is my first ever Vegan perfume by Björk and berries . All thanks to @Slipintostyle for posting it on her IG story. As a perfumer, I got curious and immediately ordered it. Surprisingly “September by björk and berries didn’t disappoint. This will be part of my collection. Love it

The pros: Eco packaging, worth the money and long lasting scent. 99$ for 50ml.

The cons: absolutely nothing!

Lastly my first ever Danish fragrance by Zarkoperfume . I came across this sometime last year but didn’t care for it. A friend gave me as a gift two months ago. I’m loving it. This brand have more than 12 different scents. I am looking forward to trying them all.

The pros: long lasting and fresh scent. Reasonable price. 110$ for 100ml.

The cons: absolutely nothing!

Björk& berries and Zarkoperfume are my recommendations. PS this is not a sponsored post. Like they say one mans food is another mans poison, Stora Skugan and Byredo is probably your thing. Give it a try!

Thanks for reading and see you next Friday. Have a nice weekend.

🥂
