Where to buy Perfume? Never bought before ...

Found 21st Dec 2008
Hey,

I've never needed to buy perfume for the lady before. Past girls have never been the perfume type - you know what I mean. But, I need another present for her and I think perfume would be good and I think she'd like the CKIN2U for her.

So ... I know what I want ... no idea where to buy it.

I presume online is gona be a no go now, unless it can be delivered on time. So where do you go for perfume on the high street that is going to be an ok price. Boots probably the highest price for this kind of thing?

Any pointers would be great, hoping to leave soonish to find it!

Try boots, sometimes you can be suprised and get it for a reasonable proce there
Or
Semi-Chem
Or
The Perfume shop

At Christmas I always get my boyfriend a perfume set and he always gets me one.

Try The Perfume Shop, Boots or Superdrug for a start. I don't think ordering now online will get it delivered for Christmas though.

That is a good price at Boots!

It's not her only present. I'm not that bad. Just needs something "else" - what she has now isn't quite enough.

Nearest Store 160 miles away. :-D Online shop though, still promising delivery for Christmas!

I'm liking the look of the Boots Pack TBH, will pop in there and see they have one or can find one!

i think i saw on a tv ad that tj hughes was the 150ml of CKIN2U for £20

I have bought from ]HERE before and they have always been spot on.. And Christmas delivery.. Excellent prices but make sure you don't select a tester.. They are clearly marked..

Boots is offering extra points at the minute aren't they? Might be worth spending a bit extra to get the points back.

So it would be £33 for the gift set with 100ml perfume. Not bad. Boots is £25 for 50ml perfume gift set. Decisions decisions...

BS .................and your opinion matters to what 25 of the forum.

And besides does it matter if its "uber cool " to buy perfume NO
Does it matter if OP thinks his gf would appreciate this YES

Try engaging your brain before you open your mouth for once instead of trying and failing badly at being the forum funny man....................A Joke is more apt


Now who....................................... FAIL

Boots is pricey but they rely on ppl having an advantage card to see bigger picture , if you have one and go to machine instore can always get extra points for condtional spenf like 500 ( £5) when you spend £40 . Use the point next time you go thru till if you like even same day.

Try asda and tesco or tk maxx for a good deal.

The perfume shop liek boots hit n miss if you get good deal but in both boots and the perfume shop try and find a gift set these always offer value for money

So long as the perfume isnt horrid most women will tolerate most fragrances if it pease their guy ( gets them horny)
I dont love or hate paris by YSL, but OH really likes it so he buys it sometimes and since i dont mind i i happily wear it.

Hugo Boss Deep Red is one of my favs and i always get asked what im wearing.

Don't have a boots card. Very very very rarely buy anything in there. I suppose I need to get off my bum and go shopping!

he has already said its not ther only present he going to get her, "hes not that bad" he said, so i guess I was right that if it was the only present it would of been a huge fail.

I give REAL advice brahs, don h4te on me, I tell the truth ya get me?

I always think it's nice if a thread is updated - so here is my update.

Went into Boots, had only 2 sets left for £25. The Christmas Type, 50ml and the other stuff. Popped into Savers though, and they had the normal set (same stuff just different gift set wrapper) for £19.99 minus 2.5%. So bought it from Savers!

How were the sales like brah, I might pop in town tomorrow?
