My favourite perfume of all time is Ysatis by Givenchy. I discovered this in my teens and I've never fallen out of love with it. I think it's a scent which you'd either love or hate, it's quite a strong, heavy fragrance so there's no middle ground.
I've been without any Ysatis for quite some time now, I tend to use much cheaper brands for day to day wear and I acquire more expensive ones as gifts. Over the Easter period, I decided that I'd take Eleanor in to Leeds and have a bit of a spending spree with my Boots Advantage Card points. I don't think I've ever redeemed any points since getting the card many years ago and I'd managed to save up over £100 worth.
I was umming and ahing wondering what to buy when I saw there was a reduction on Ysatis, a 30ml bottle had been reduced to £24.50 so I picked it up and put it in my basket. It was only after I'd thought about it that I decided to go for the larger 100ml bottle. This should have been around £75 but was reduced to £48.99, definitely worth paying double the price for more than three times the amount.
There wasn't really anything else I wanted apart from an eye pencil. I don't wear much make up but my old eye pencil had been sharpened and sharpened until there was hardly anything left of it so I bought another and then let Eleanor loose with the rest of my points. She'd been wanting a new ladyshaver, her old one had stopped working, so she got one of those as well as some make up. When everything had been put through the checkout I still had over £16 worth of points left on my card, so Eleanor had been quite restrained. Those £16 in points will start my saving off again.
It was lovely shopping for treats without having to spend any money, I shall definitely let my points mount up again so that I can do it again.
