Fragrance sale shelf, Shoppers Drug Mart (December 2017)

Fragrance Sale Shelves & Revlon Street Chic Collection (December 2017, Canada)

One of the things I love best about drugstores in Canada is the fragrance sale shelf, where amazing deals can often be found—perfect for holiday giftgiving!

I’m not sure whether it was started by Shoppers Drug Mart, where there’s typically a $19.99 sale shelf, but Rexall definitely has this sale shelf now, too. They actually do two tiers of prices, at $19.99 and $29.99, though I generally still find perfumes I’m more interested in at Shoppers. Granted, I have more Shoppers locations in my repertoire.

Over the last week, I’ve hit up several of my usual locations in downtown Toronto and snapped shots of their perfume sale shelves. I think if you check out the shelves throughout the year, you’ll find better deals than they have right now, but it’s not too shabby in this holiday shopping season.

Boucheron Jaïpur Homme & Paco Rabanne pour Homme Swatch & Review

Happy Father’s Day!

In honor of the day, I thought I’d share two favorite colognes of two of my favorite guys, my dad and my husband.

Boucheron Jaïpur Homme eau de toilette

Jaïpur Homme by Boucheron has long been one of my dad’s favorite scents, and I admit, it’s a handy gift to get him, as he can be pretty difficult to buy for. Jaïpur Homme, unusually, also comes in an eau de parfum concentration, though I think the eau de toilette is plenty strong! Jaïpur is a very well-blended, heady combination of floral, citrus and spice notes. They didn’t name it after a beautiful Indian city for nothing! The fragrance was launched in 1998 and was composed by Annick Menardo (Bvlgari Black, Lolita Lempicka, Diesel Fuel for Life).
