Bigger is most certainly better with fragrance. Here’s why you should seek a supersize scent in your life (and treat yourself right now to an XL bottle)…
1. YOUR BOTTLE WILL LAST A LONG, LONG TIME
What you see is what you get with a bottle over 100ml. These supersize scents will last you a while (and more), which means no stress AND smelling good 24/7. Our only tip is to grab a 30ml-50ml bottle of the same scent for when you’re on the go (the smaller, the better so it fits in your pocket). We’re lusting over YSL Black Opium in 150ml, which is an electric mix of coffee, pink pepper and vanilla. Lush. That’s you sorted.
2. IT’S THE MOST PRACTICAL INVESTMENT
Is there anything better than a long-term beauty investment? We think not. Once you opt for a supersize scent, you’ll never go back. Why? You have as much spray as you need to smell incredible all the time, and you won’t have to run out to the shops for any last-minute purchases – woo! Try Lancôme La Vie Est Belle in 200ml. The bottle is not only massive, but it smells like a dream, too. Spritz the pear, black currant and orange blossom to find out just how signature scent-worthy this is.
3. YOU’LL BE KNOWN AS THE BEST-SMELLING PERSON AROUND
… especially when you opt for a supersize scent like Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male in 200ml. Trust us, it’s one of those scents that’ll get the compliments flooding in, and it’s one to wear every day. Let the wafts of mint, cinnamon and lavender energise and refresh you. Also, can we just appreciate how standout the bottle is? Wow!
4. THEY'RE SO BIG THEY’RE BASICALLY WORKS OF ART
We’ll never truly get over how magnificent these supersize bottles are. They’re so big, they look like sculptures, so you’ll drool over them on your fragrance shelf. Just take a look at Jean Paul Gaultier Le Beau in 125ml, which combines tropical coconut with zest bergamot. The bottle? It’s the shape of a naked chest with a cheeky gold vine leaf – and we’re speechless (in a good way).
