It’s that time of year again. And for all of you that put off shopping until Thanksgiving it can seem like an overwhelming chore at times. I have friends who do the Black Friday shopping ritual. My friend Laurie and her sister get up at four in the morning, leave the house at 5:00 so they can be outside the stores by 5:30 am. And they shop all day until about four in the afternoon. OK, I so do not do this and have never shopped on Black Friday. But hey to those that do I bet there are some great deals to be had.
I like to shop for the holidays starting in May or June, and put things away so it is not so overwhelming when the holiday season finally hits. But much like last year I didn’t keep up with this. So here I am shopping in November. I hit up Macy’s after work last week and found quite a few bargains. And though this gift may not exactly be a bargain, it is a good deal. The normal price for a bottle of Gucci’s Guilty is $100, but this gift set is $104, so for an additional $4.00 you get a spritzer bottle to carry around in a purse and you get a small bottle of body lotion. Plus, it comes in a nice gift box which will decidedly make more of an impact then the perfume by itself. Don’t you think?
I am not a fan of fragrances that are too sweet and have the typical perfume smell.
I purchased this for my mom. I love this scent and wear it often. One day my mom commented on it and said she thought it was a really nice scent and she liked that it was not overbearingly sweet. And she is right, it isn’t. Gucci’s Guilty is more spicy and not overly floral. I am not a fan of fragrances that are too sweet and have the typical perfume smell. I have been wearing this fragrance for a few years now and I recently discovered a close friend of mine Angela also owns and loves this scent. So if you have someone on your list that is a fan of Gucci’s Guilty or you know someone that likes more understated fragrances this gift should fit the bill. And I just may go back and buy this for myself.
