Black Friday Fragrance Preview

Black Friday Fragrance Preview: November 27th

Black Friday has become a global phenomenon in the past couple of years. Originally the official kick-off to the holiday shopping season in America during the Thanksgiving holiday, the shopping day has quickly spread throughout North and South America and Europe. Retailers of all shapes and sizes offer some of their best values of the year with exclusive sets, limited edition items and holiday coffrets. Fragrance brands have jumped on the Black Friday bandwagon offering value-priced sets from some impressive designer brands. Here are a handful of our favourites from Italy.

Moschino Toy 2 & Toy Boy Travel Spray Duo, $42

This just might be the cutest fragrance set of the season. Italian fashion brand Moschino is offering two of its most popular fragrances in 10 ml spray formats topped with a teddy bear head. You get Toy 2 for her with notes of mandarin, Granny Smith apple, white currant, magnolia, peony, jasmine, sandalwood, amber and musk. It’s light and fresh. Toy Boy is a spicy-fresh scent for him with notes of pink pepper, Indonesian nutmeg, pear, bergamot, rose, magnolia, clove, flax, cashmeran, Haitian vetiver, amber and sandalwood. It smells sexy on both men and women.

    So many amazing beautiful choices. I have been collecting miniature fragrances for years. I never knew it was a thing. What I love the most about miniatures is you get to try the fragrance before making the financial investment. As I learned from your Instagram and Twitter accounts that a fragrance aromas changeS with your body chemistry. That every fragrance will smells different on everyone as well. Thank you for taking the pressure off of buying a fragrance the instant you smell it while shopping. @959angela
