Forever smelling good, thanks to Achica!


 I had regularly seen adverts for Achica on the TV but had never really paid much attention to them so I didn't know a lot about what they had to offer. However, after the lovely Michael contacted me about writing a review on their service I did a quick Google search to see what it was all about. 

Achica is a members-only website which sells luxury lifestyle brands for discounted prices. At first I was a little apprehensive as I found that most of the things that they had to offer were home decor and furnishings, which don't really interest me at the moment, especially at luxury prices. However, I learned that they get new promotions every day and saw that they sometimes get clothes and accessories, candles and perfumes too! I was very kindly given £110 to spend on the website and try out their service and here is what I got:

Paul Smith Women Eau De Parfum 50ml: £20* | Yves Saint Laurent Cinema Eau De Parfum 50ml: £39* | Oscar De La Renta Intrusion Intense Women's Eau De Parfum 30ml: £12* | DKNY Red Delicious Eau De Parfum 50ml: £29*

I am a little bit of a perfume freak at the moment so I decided to buy a few bottles to add to my collection (and share with my mum!). I can't remember the RRP of them individually, but all together I saved a huge £57.24 by buying them from Achica! The process of ordering was fairly simple; I just had to register my details to become a member and then I was free to browse through their promotions. They have a calendar which shows two days in advance so you can see what things are coming up, but the promotions usually last between 24 and 72 hours so make sure you don't miss the ones you are interested in!

If you click on an item you are interested in, it will tell you how much money you would save on that product and also when the expected delivery date is. All of my perfumes had an expected delivery date of between September 11-18, and I made my order on August 18. They arrived yesterday (September 17), which seems like a little long to wait for a delivery but I didn't mind too much as the products get shipped to Achica from the brands for checking and repacking, and it wasn't an urgent order. Different products have different expected delivery days however, so make sure you check that if you need your items by a certain date. My perfumes arrived packaged well in bubble wrap so there was no chance of them getting damaged in transit.

Overall, I am very happy with my experience with Achica, and I think this website is a brilliant idea if you are able to shop within a higher budget as you could make a great saving! It is also worth having a look for gifts on there as they stock some lovely things- I will definitely be doing this from now on, some of the other things I had my eye on were Pandora bracelets and charms, designer watches and hand bags!

Have you ever purchased via Achica? Also, let me know if you would like a write-up on any of the perfumes I ordered; I love them all!
*DISCLOSURE: The items in this post were paid for using a voucher code that I was very kindly provided with. My opinions are still 100% honest and my own.
