let there be light ♥

With all the Black Friday madness that happened this week, I was actually surprised to find something I wanted. I'm not sure whether this offer is part of Black Friday, but Superdrug are currently offering 1/2 price off selected fragrances. I was lucky enough to grab Rihanna's Nude 100ml perfume for only £20, there were only a few left on the counter and it was pretty hectic in the store! I have heard so many people complain about celebrity fragrances when it occurred to me how many I actually own myself! I really am a sucker from celebrity perfumes, currently on my dressing table are fragrances by Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears and now Rihanna. Although my signature perfume is Alien by Thierry Mugler, I do love celebrity perfumes! Now for Rihanna's Nude, the overall look of the perfume and packaging is very pretty. Rihanna looks gorgeous on the packaging and although the perfume bottle is slightly bulky looking, I really like the theme of Rihanna's coloured perfume bottles, which in the past have ranged from red to black. 

Launched in 2013, Nude has strong notes of Orange Blossom, Jasmine and the base notes include Sandalwood and Vanilla Orchid. Overall it has a very fruity scent which isn't too overpowering. I'm not usually a fan of orange scented perfumes but I was really surprised how much I loved this perfume! For £20 you really can't go wrong - the one thing about celebrity perfumes that I don't agree with is how overpriced they can be. I don't seem too eager to spend a lot of money on them, now for designer brands like Chanel or Dior, yes but for a celebrity brands I'm not too sure. The 100ml Nude fragrance is originally sold for around £37 in stores, so £20 is amazing! I sprayed Nude about two hours ago and I can still really smell it, I'm really surprised how long lasting this perfume is. I really recommend Nude for an everyday perfume, especially with Christmas just around the corner! What scents are you loving at the moment? Are you a fan of celebrity fragrances? 9/10
