I don’t live anywhere near a fragrance counter, and so my website of choice to buy fragrances has been The Perfume Bar- I LOVE this site! Their range is huge, their shipping is speedy, and they offer Oxipay as a payment option...tick, tick, BIG TICK. Oxipay is a flexible payment solution where you get to receive your goodies straight away (who doesn’t love a little instant gratification am I right??) without having to pay the full amount upfront. The total price of your order is paid over 4 payments (with no fees or interest if you pay on time)- and even better, the payments are made fortnightly- YAY! It makes shopping for those larger purchases so much easier- in fact, I don’t think I’d do it any other way. Because having to eat 2 Minute Noodles for a week when you’ve gone a little crazy spending all your money at once is a real thing, and if it sounds like I’ve been there it’s because I have. I’ll tell you more about my love for Oxipay later- but first- a QUIZ to find a fragrance that reflects your personality! This IS a light-hearted quiz, obviously- don’t take it too seriously ;)

Sooo- how did you go? Hopefully you’re a little bit closer to finding your perfect perfume, or at least have a better idea of which fragrance category to narrow things down to. Let’s talk costs- on average, a fragrance can cost between $80 and $200- often much more. I’m not sure about you (you may be the Sultan of Brunei for all I know), but that is a fairly huge amount of cash to drop all in one go. BUT- if you choose Oxipay as a payment option (and you totally should), here’s an example of what you can expect to pay:
Say you wanted to buy the new Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glace- this costs $79.00 at full price.
With Oxipay, you would pay four interest free payments of $19.75 (this obviously excludes sale prices and shipping costs, which you don’t need to worry about with The Perfume Bar as it’s FREE within NZ!)
No interest, no fees (provided you pay on time), no drama...I mean, why wouldn’t you go for it??
Okay- this is pretty, pretty exciting. I have THREE $50 vouchers for The Perfume Bar to go towards funding your next purchase at The Perfume Bar! You could also pay using Oxipay! All you need to do to enter is comment below and tell me which perfume (or perfumes!) you’d buy...SO EASY! The winners will be announced on 16/02/18- good luck!
