Best Student Buys at Fragrance Direct

It could be argued that perfume and beauty products aren’t necessarily an ESSENTIAL buy for skint students… but here at Student Discount Squirrel all want to look and smell at least half-decent, don’t we?

Unfortunately, cosmetics and fragrance are rarely cheap, and in the case of the latter, you really do get what you pay for.

Ultimately, these are items you put on your skin, and so you need to be assured that what you’re using is of fair quality and won’t cause irritation or reaction. This is where Fragrance Direct come in – offering the best possible value on the best possible quality; all online (well, there is one store and treatment room, but only one) and so run as a business with minimum overheads to facilitate the lowest pricing possible.

We’ve listed the top student buys below but to save even more make sure you check out the Fragrance Direct student discount page for the latest codes, money saving tips and more.

Top Student Buy: Nina Ricci RICCI Eau de Parfum, 80ml – £33.95

Nina Ricci is one of the UK’s favourite perfumeries, and at a vast discount from the RRP of £67, this 80ml bottle makes for a wise buy, too. Described as a ‘medley of floral freshness’, you’ll pick up notes of rhubarb zest, bergamot, moonflower and Indian tuberose alongside patchouli and sandalwood.

The light fruity and floral blend alongside the pink and purple delicate bottle gives for a really feminine fragrance that lasts well on the skin and the nose. It looks great, it smells great, and it makes for a great gift… for you or someone else!

Top Student Buy: Calvin Klein IN2U Him Eau de Toilette Spray, 150ml – £18.95

This Calvin Klein scent retails for a whopping £50 in 150ml size usually, so this is a great deal. Cool on the nose to start with a masculine musk finish, this scent is ideal for day-to-day wear and doubled up on for evenings and formal occasions. Its warm vetiver fragrance is delicate enough to be masculine but not over-powering, and in a bottle this big, there’s plenty to last.

You can’t really go wrong with Calvin Klein – be it pants, perfume or clothing – and as a household name designer brand it’s synonymous with quality and elegance.

Top Student Buy: Gift Set: Chloe Signature Set, 75ml – £59.95

OK, so the best part of sixty quid isn’t normally the kind of student bargain buy we’d advocate here at Student Discount Squirrel; but if you’re in the market for a big important gift, you could do a lot worse than this. Chloe is one of the world’s most popular perfume brands and is renowned for beautiful fragrance that mirrors sophistication and sleekness.

The RRP for this gift set is £94 on the high street, so you’re getting a hefty discount with this purchase. The Chloe Signature Vintage bottle is a gorgeous addition to any dressing table and the scent is powdery roses with feminine florals underneath. It is instantly recognisable to anyone ‘in the know’, and in this set, comes alongside a 5ml mini eau de parfum for travel and 100ml body lotion of the same scent. The recipient of this gift can smell like Chloe whenever, and wherever they are… even if their name isn’t.
