Deal Alert: Free Versace Tote Bag with fragrance purchase

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 3 - 2012

Everyone loves a good gift with purchase but the problem with them is that once you’ve got the freebie in your hot little hands, the offering can be somewhat… underwhelming.  I should point out that this isn’t the general rule, infact I’d go so far as to say that GWPs are far better nowadays than they were just five years ago.  But, there’s still more than enough disappointing ones out there to go around, which is why I’m pleased to be talking about a particularly well-made and generous GWP that’s available this month from Versace Parfums.

The Versace Tote Bag.

Now we’re not talking fold-up magazine freebie here, this is a serious bag for serious perfumistas!  This Versace gift with purchase* (exclusively at Boots btw) is so well-constructed that I’m properly appreciative of the effort that’s gone into putting out a worthwhile GWP.  As an aside, and because it’s somewhat relevant – Lancome often do great makeup bags for their GWPs, keep an eye out for them.

Anyway, back to the Versace Tote Bag… here’s some detail shots…

It has reinforced corners, a base board, a studded bottom and is fully lined.  It’s also huge.

You can nab one of these limited Versace Tote Bags with the purchase of any Versace pefume over £50.  This includes: Crystal Noir, Yellow Diamond,  Bright Crystal, Vanitas, Pour Femme, and my favourite Versace Versense… a beautifully crisp Spring scent that’s been on my wishlist for over a year.  The GWP is running exclusively instore at Boots, while stocks last.

Do you have a favourite Versace fragrance?  What’s the best GWP you’ve ever received?

    Wow! This is gorgeous! Showed to my Hubby and he asked me to get myself a perfume and the bag! Gonna call the bigger Boots store tomorrow to make sure they have it before going.

    I just called my local Boots, the bigger store, and they told me that there is no such offer. Can you please clarify if it is still available?
    Or is it in selected stores only?

    Thank you.

    • Hi Vonvon, I’m gonna contact the PR today and see if I can find out for you. Hold tight! x

    • Hi Vonvon, Versace PR wanted to thank you for flagging this up and they’ve said:

      “as well as being available in Boots (only in larger stores at the moment, but rolling out to all other Versace Fragrance stockists in May) it will also be available in ALL The Perfume Shops as of next week, 10th April 2012”

      Hope that helps lovely x

        Thank you for taking the time to enquire for me.

        I will try The Perfume Shops soon. Is it in all The Perfume Shop stores, even the small ones in small towns like where I am in?

        You know, I dont normally go crazy over GWPs, but really this bag is simply gorgeous.

        Btw, I called the Boots again, and they told me they won’t be carrying this offer. Sigh…..

        • Hi Vonvon, I’d expect all Perfume Shop Stores to be participating – good luck in your quest! xx

            Hi Charlotte, I finally got the bag today. :) I bought Yellow Diamond.

            I left several messages in Boots FB page and their customer service people actually messaged hme privately and helped me track down a Boots which carry the offer, and asked the Fragrance Consultant to put aside one for me till I could go there to get it!

            Excellent customer service.

          • I am so, so pleased you finally tracked it down! Was it worth the wait? Don’t answer that – I don’t think my nerves can take it LOL! xxxx

    I’m pretty sensitive to strong perfumes (anything with a bit of vanilla gives me a migraine), but I can use Versense exactly because of its freshness. For me, it’s The One. And it was my boyfriend who chose it for me, such a lovely Christmas gift :)

    • I’m so pleased someone else loves it too, I haven’t heard or read much about it online to be honest. Infact, I surprised myself by liking it – I’m not usually drawn to green fragrances as a rule, but this one is so beautifully balanced. You have a fab boyfriend with a great nose!
