New Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection provides luxury at a great price
CHICAGO While it’s been well-documented that women have been cutting back on everything from clothing to grocery bills in the current economy, a new fragrance line has launched to help women find ways to enjoy luxury without breaking the bank.
New Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection, which features a line of body mists and matching anti-perspirants, combining long-lasting, sophisticated scents with 24-hour wetness and odor protection, and providing everyday luxury for women on the move.
To help women find ways to have it all, the new Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection is partnering with actress and fashion guru Lindsay Price, star of NBC’s “Lipstick Jungle.”
Price is passionate about showing women how to be smart shoppers and spenders, and will share how they can indulge in those must-haves that keep them looking and feeling good without breaking the bank.
“I’ve learned that knowing when to save and when to splurge is key to savoring everyday luxuries,” Price said. “It’s important to realize how to adjust — not abandon — indulgences, by looking for smarter ways to spend and treat ourselves.”
Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection is available in three extraordinary scents: Delicious Bliss, Sexy Intrigue and Classic Romance. In fragrance sniff tests, more women preferred the Collection over a top-selling fine fragrance, based on a sample of 100 participants.
To celebrate the launch of the collection, Degree Women will make an in-kind donation to Dress for Success, an international non-profit organization that provides professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help disadvantaged women thrive in work and in life. The donation will help promote economic independence and make a lasting impact on women nationwide.
Degree Women Fine Fragrance Collection, featuring anti-perspirants and matching body mists, are available in the deodorant aisle at mass market retailers nationwide for an average retail price of $3.99 for deodorant (3 fl. oz.) and $3.99 for body mists (2.6 oz.).
