Select Macy's Black Friday Doorbusters LIVE NOW for One Day Only (with a Personal Recommendation)


I totally didn't see this coming!

Select Macy's Black Friday Doorbusters (all of which I posted in my BF/CM round-up the other day) are now live HERE and HERE for one day only (11/17). As always, free shipping on all beauty orders at Macy's, and if you're a Plenti member you receive 2x points on all beauty purchases (you can also spend any points you may have on beauty at Macy's).

UPDATE: thanks to the lovely readers below for letting me know that you get a free fragrance sample with all beauty orders right now (automatically added to your cart), and you can also use code CHANEL to receive a free sample of Chanel LE LIFT Eye Concentrate with all beauty orders.

SPECIAL RECOMMENDATION:


When it comes to sales, I try to stay pretty neutral and avoid the "You should totally buy XYX during this sale" tips, because I understand that everyone likes different things and I never want to impose my own preferences on you. That said, I feel like I must share this with you.

Today only, the new Michael Buble by Invitation 1.0 oz. eau de parfum is on sale for $20 here (reg $40). I bought this the last time Macy's ran a one-day-only deal on it, and I am in LOVE. I watched Michael Buble give his presentation on this fragrance when it launched exclusively on HSN a while back and I was intrigued so I took a chance on it and I am SO glad I did.

From the Macy's website:

It is his idea of the perfect fine fragrance for women, the way he would like a woman to smell. A crisp floral oriental. The fragrance starts with light, sparkling top notes of red fruits and bergamot then develops its heart notes of lily of the valley, elegant rose, a wild jasmine and the spicy inflections of peony. By Invitation then wraps you in a warm base of sandalwood musks, wrapped around an addictive vanilla.

Michael Buble was very much hands-on in the creation of this fragrance and during his presentation on HSN he mentioned that he was inspired by his personal favorite fragrance, Diptyque Tam Dao, when creating this fragrance. While I don't think they're similar (not dupes at all; he wasn't trying to create a dupe), I absolutely love everything about By Invitation. It's warm, woodsy, musky, sweet and feminine yet not cloying or overly feminine (there's no cutesy-ness to this fragrance; it's sophisticated, in my opinion).

If you like the original Halle by Halle Berry, Bath & Body Works Twilight Woods, and/or Madonna Truth or Dare Naked, I think you might love this one. To me, it's in the same vein in that it's a "cuddly" fragrance that makes me think of snuggling in a warm sweater. But in a grown-up way, if that makes sense. Also, the longevity is quite impressive--a few spritzes and I am good to go for the entire day. I can still smell this fragrance on my clothes after 24 hours, but the projection isn't beastly. It doesn't enter the room before you do.

I honestly cannot recommend this fragrance enough (Mr. G loves it so much that he asked me to please continue wearing it above all of my other 100+ perfumes). And again, while I normally don't say "you need this" when it comes to sale items, I just feel compelled to mention this one. Especially with the holidays coming up; it would make a beautiful gift. The bottle is gorgeous--much more so than my photo indicates. It's a call-back to vintage microphones, which seems quite fitting to me. I am absolutely buying another bottle today at this price.

    1. You're so welcome, girlie! I'm glad that you like it too--it is just so beautiful to me, and perfect for fall/winter. Especially at this price!

      And yes, I love having a wide variety of fragrances--one for every mood! I when through a massive rose phase recently where I just couldn't enough of my fragrances with predominant rose notes, but now I'm back to the warm, woodsy, musky ones. :)

  8. You are such an enabler! I got the Michael Buble fragrance and a Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose. The lip balm earned me a sample of Clarins Facial Shaping Serum. I also got a fragrance sampler, and samples of Chanel N°5 and the LE LIFT Eye Concentrate. It's a good thing you mentioned the Plenti points. I had completely forgotten about them! I had enough to cover this order and use the leftover for the Black Friday sales.

    My grandmother wore Tea Rose and I always thought she smelled so feminine and like a lady. I just went through an Evelyn & Crabtree Body Lotion in Rosewater. The lotion itself is really moisturizing and the rose scent lingered for a few hours. It will a be repurchase next summer.

    1. Lol I have been called an "evil enabler" many a time, and I'm totally OK with that! ;)

      I love Tea Rose--it's a classic and so nostalgic for me. A lovely soliflore.

  11. Thanks once again, G!!! Been looking for a new perfume. Heard By Invitation is similar to Decadence and I like that one. Used the Chanel promo code. Excited about those goodies too!

  12. I bought this the last time you mentioned it and am so glad I did. After wearing it for 10 to 12 hours I will catch a scent that makes me wonder "What is that...so nice" and I remember it was this perfume and I am smelling the finishing notes, really wonderful!
    Thank you so much!

  13. I ended up getting the Estee Lauded ANR serum and it came with 2 freebies SO that should last me a while. Really curious to see what other stuff other brands put out on Black Friday/ Cyber Monday

  14. So do you think they may have the Michael Buble perfume on sale again for Black Friday? I missed it this time but I'm really interested in getting it! It sounds really nice.

    Also, thank you for all you do! This is my favorite blog! :)
