Two Reasons Why You Should Rather Buy Generic Perfume

Two Reasons Why You Should Rather Buy Generic Perfume

Do you like perfume, but had just about enough of throwing ridiculous amounts of money at bottles that look like their packaging cost more than the actual scent inside them? We don’t blame you. Today, perfume is not cheap and unless you have an account at Truworths, Edgars or Foschini, spending hundreds of Rands on a bottle of perfume can seem like a waste of money. The reality, however, is that you don’t have to break the bank to smell like a million dollars, because there is an alternative option in the form of generic perfume.

What is Generic Perfume?

Unfortunately, many people don’t quite understand the concept of generic perfume, and with big brands spreading half-truths about how dreadful they are and how generic scents don’t last long, we’re here to set the record straight and give you two winning reasons why you should buy generic perfume.

#1 Quality of Scent Ensures Optimal Longevity

Inspired by the original, generic perfumes are high-quality replicas that have the identical chemical composition of the original. Just like original perfumes – through the scientific process of reverse engineering – generic perfume notes are separated into three classes: top/head notes, middle/heart notes and base notes. These notes are created carefully with knowledge of the evaporation process and intended use of the perfume. Whereas original perfumes last at least 4-6 hour or more when you wear it, so does generic perfume.

#2 You Can Buy Up To Five Bottles for the Price of One

Are you someone who can only afford to wear one fragrance? Well not anymore, especially if you think of it this way: you don’t wear the same shoes or necklace every day, so why wear the same perfume every day? Different moods require different scents and with the astronomical prices of perfumes today, not many people can afford to have more than one or two bottles of perfume lying around. As the #1 alternative to an expensive perfume, the greatest advantage of generic perfume is its price.  It is a well-known industry fact that more than 80% of the retail price of original perfume is linked to packaging, marketing and branding. Generic perfumes, on the other hand, focus less on the fancy packaging and the over-the-top expensive bottle, which means that you’re paying for the scent only. Depending on the original brand – for the price of one bottle of original perfume – you can take home up to five bottles. That’s right, five bottles! Talk about having a perfume for each of day of the week!

So now that you know that generic perfumes have just as many notes as original perfume, can last just as long as original perfume, and are much cheaper than original perfume – what are you waiting for? It’s time to start stocking up on that perfume collection you’ve always dreamed about!
