It's ~finally~ payday, and the world is your oyster! When you have your sweldo on hand, you begin to think that you can buy anything that you want. You're excused to shop for products that are pricier than your favorite affordable finds. I mean, if the expensive item really works and can last you for a long time, it's a good investment.
In my opinion, something you shouldn't scrimp on are perfumes and eau de toilettes because it pays to have a ~signature scent~. You can spritz them on for special occasions such as anniversaries, important meetings, dinner parties, and more. They're made with potent oils and fruit and flower extracts so their formula lasts long on your skin. You don't have to reapply. A few spritzes of these select fragrances are all you need, and you're set for the day.
