On my way to work one Tuesday morning, I stopped at the post office and there was a long line. As I stood in line there were a few people in front of me, two of which kept turning their heads to stare. I smiled in return as my casual greeting then after a few times it became a bit uncomfortable. I couldn’t understand why they were staring at me. In my mind, I wanted to believe I just looked fabulous in my work attire however if I’m truthful with myself I know that on this day that wasn’t the case.
As usual, I’m wearing all black. I was just as casual as they come. As I made my way to the checkout counter the postal worker smiled at me and then said what are you wearing? I immediately became self-conscious as my initial thought about my outfit choice came rushing back into my mind. I asked her “What do you mean”? Insert the Chimere ain’t the one face! She responded by saying “Your perfume! What do you have on? It smells heavenly”. I answered, Oh I’m wearing Baccarat Rouge 540 and that’s when I knew then I was going to have a great day.
You Got What?
The scent of the day was my newest purchase, Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum. I have been eyeing this brand for a while and finally made the plunge. Listen, I don’t regret a thing and in fact, I wish I purchased it sooner. I am not an expert in the fragrance community by any means but I am an expert in people. If I walk into stores and restaurants and turn heads that’s an indication that I made the right decision with this purchase. This was not a blind per se. I had a small sample from a friend and then I tried a few dupes as well. More on that in today’s video review below.
Baccarat Rouge currently retails between $180 – $575 at Bloomingdales. I picked up the 2.4 oz bottle which retails for $300. Here the thing, before I purchased the actual Eau de Parfum I purchased the scented body oil. I did this for a few reasons and will go into this more in-depth in today’s video. If you’re looking to spend a fraction of what I spent, it’s a much watch.
This is deemed a unisex fragrance, and I have a few friends who actually share this scent with their spouses. I’m not sharing lol but if you would like the larger 6.8 size bottle is a much better buy. I noticed this size is also on sale more often than the smaller sizes and saves you money over time. I will go into this a bit more in the video below.
Do Or Don’t
As I mentioned earlier the first day I wore this perfume I got tons and tons of compliments. After I left the post office I went into a convenience store to grab some water and I had a few people offer compliments as well. Additionally, as I entered into work compliments continue for the duration of the day. Talk about smiling. It wasn’t like I had never worn perfume before. I couldn’t understand why this one, in particular, had so many people walking up to me asking me what I was wearing. I’m not complaining if anything it put a huge smile on my face. It felt great to know that I was seemingly irresistible to so many.
Do I recommend you purchase perfume, absolutely. This has been the best buy of 2020. Honestly, the return on my investment at this point is 100%. I can’t believe I waited so long to make the splurge but I highly recommend you try either one of my buying methods above depending on your budget and what suits you best. Below I have a video explaining exactly how I purchased my perfume collection and I’m also going to offer a few tips on how to get more bang for your buck. If you don’t have $300 to spend find out how to get the scent for much less!
