UPDATED WITH MANY MORE CODES, including non-USA: It’s that time of year again, when there are many alluring sales on all kinds of goods for “Black Friday”, and today I’m going to share some of the possibilities related to perfumes. I especially want to highlight independent perfumers and retailers, as they are the ones bringing the most interesting fragrances to market, and if we perfumistas want them to continue, we’ve got to support them with our purchases.
Here, in roughly alphabetical order, are some of the discount codes I’ve been sent or have found: some are valid now through Sunday or Monday, and others will only work on Black Friday itself. Please add any others you have found in the comments below! Continue reading
Happy weekend, fragrance friends! Today is “Small Business Saturday”, an opportunity to shop locally, and support small independent businesses — like many of the perfumers and fragrance retailers we all love. Some have special discounts this weekend; others simply offer the same reasonable prices many have year-round. The list below is somewhat arbitrary, but most are websites I have used myself.
Discounts (some started yesterday):
DSH Perfumes: sparkle2018 (20% off sitewide); gifts with purchase also available.
Indigo Perfumery: blackfriday2018 (20% off full bottles)
Le Jardin Retrouve: free shipping worldwide this weekend
PK Perfumes: PKCYBER30 (30% sitewide and free shipping)
Shelley Kyle: THANKFUL (30% off sitewide)
Smell Bent: WONDERFUL (40% off sitewide)
Twisted Lily: THANKYOU2018 (20% off entire order)
Independent perfumers (mostly in the US) who sell directly:
En Voyage Perfumes
Providence Perfume Company
Sixteen92: various codes for discounts depending on purchase
St. Clair Scents
Independent perfumeries (retailers):
LuckyScent: special Black Friday sample set
Smallflower Apothecary (Merz)
The Perfumed Court (samples and decants)
Today has been christened “Small Business Saturday” in the retail world: a day during the long Thanksgiving weekend when shoppers can support local and small businesses. So I happily used a discount code to make my first purchase from PK Perfumes, a small independent niche perfumery. If you want to do likewise, the code is: PKFRIDAY40, for 40% off this whole weekend, on the whole website.
