11 Cheap Perfumes Beauty Outsiders Love

Prada Infusion d'Iris Absolue, Stash SJP and Donna Karan Gold adverts

Earlier this month, Marie Claire did a listicle on 10 Cheap Perfumes Beauty Insiders Love. I have no real objection to their list1 other than the inclusion of a $76 perfume and an $82 body oil — beauty insiders apparently have a different definition of “cheap” than I do, possibly because they don’t have to fork over cash for their beauty products — but I did note on Twitter that I did not love any of their picks. I’ll also add that none of their 10 show up very often in our daily scent of the day polls. So, here is a list of my own. I couldn’t make myself narrow down to fewer than 11, and of course I’ve cheated even more by adding alternatives. As always, do include your own picks in the comments!

Marie Claire included the old standby 4711. I know some of you probably love 4711, and I can’t scoff at it — it’s possibly one of the better fragrances on their list. Still, my old-school drugstore choice would be the venerable spicy carnation, Old Spice

The daily lemming

Sounds good to me: “Create an aura that’s slightly rogue and decidedly daring with this magnetic, must-have hair mist. Laced with addictive notes of cedarwood atlas, vetiver and musk, this hair mist moves with you for a new and sexy way to wear STASH. It is light enough to spray on body too, so you […] Continue reading

Sarah Jessica Parker Stash SJP ~ fragrance review

Sarah Jessica Parker Stash SJP brand image

I forgive Stash many things:

1. its name (to me, “Stash” doesn’t jibe with the advertising or bottle);

2. the fact I could only smell Stash at Ulta Beauty (I went to two Ulta stores in order to get a sample of Stash. At Ulta No. 1 the S.A. said: “Uh, nope, we have Stash but not a tester bottle…I have a bottle here I’m making into a tester.” Me: “Can I sniff it?” S.A.: “I’m making a tester…SOON.” She chuckled and moved on. The store was empty.

3. Sarah Jessica Parker (whose roles never resonate with me). SJP: hie thee to a desert, strip your face of all makeup and play a character with little money and no “wardrobe;” perhaps a graveyard-shift nurse who also runs an animal rescue farm near Albuquerque with her lazy-ass teen sons and bitch of a mother…Sissy Spacek? Kathy Bates?

I admit I didn’t have much hope for Stash…

A teeny bit of cognac, a teeny bit of leather, a teeny bit of body odor

I knew that I wanted a teeny bit of cognac, a teeny bit of leather, a teeny bit of body odor. We started working on this back when Lovely came out and nobody was ready for it. They were like, ‘genderless doesn’t work, there’s nothing like that on the market’—and then I watched it happen. […] Continue reading

I spray a lot of freakin’ fragrance on

When Lovely came out, I would always describe her as a really polite fragrance, that she had social grace. It was as if she stepped into somebody else’s world but it was very passive, so that people wouldn’t object to whatever she left behind. It was just a really nice balance of “I’m here. I’m […] Continue reading

Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (& some other stuff) 2015, part 16

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes collector editions from Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Issey Miyake and Sarah Jessica Parker; plus a new Eau de Toilette concentration of Tom Ford Black Orchid.

Giorgio Armani Sí bow edition
