Small (Scent) Business Saturday

Small (Scent) Business Saturday

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.

Small Business Saturday: PK Perfumes

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.
