Perfumes tend to have the ability to transport us to a different place reminding us of a memory we had long thought forgotten, with a single spritz. I love my perfumes, and even keep all the old, empty bottles of my favourites just so I can revisit the time I used to wear them!
While luxury fragrances do have their charm, it’s understandable why you wouldn’t want to empty your wallet for something that will barely last you two to three months. This is why I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to spend a ball to smell divine. Here’s a list of budget-friendly perfumes that you won’t believe are under Rs. 500!
Bella Vita Luxury Perfumes Trial
My first recommendation is for those of you who don’t really know what kind of fragrance they prefer. Are you more of a fruity, floral scent or a clean breeze, green tea kinda gal?
This trial pack by Bella Vita will help you figure it out—with 10 different, tiny options you can play around with the fragrances and see which one suits you best. The kit has fragrances for men, women as well as some unisex scents, which makes for the perfect gift to a loved one as well. It’s the perfect way to try before you buy, indulging in the world of scents one mini bottle at a time.
Renee Cosmetics Bloom Perfume
The Renee Cosmetics Bloom Perfume is a deep floral scent that combines notes of tuberose, jasmine, and sandalwood, enhanced by a spicy trail of vanilla, cocoa, tonka beans, and a hint of almond.
If you’re looking for something that leaves a lasting impression, this captivating scent is truly impossible to ignore!
Iba Pure Perfume – Rain Drops
The Iba Pure Perfume – Rain Drops is a rollerblade perfume with a cool and refreshing scent. A personal favourite, the fragrance emulates the embrace of a cool sea breeze.
With aquatic notes, this perfume is easy to carry no matter the occasion since it’s tailored for the woman on the go. Additionally, it might help to know that all Iba Halal perfumes are free from alcohol, parabens, and phthalates, and they hold Halal and PETA certifications, ensuring they are vegan and cruelty-free.
SO… Fragrance Smooch Vixen EDP
Okay, I’ll admit I haven’t really tried this one out yet but I thought I’d include it in the list because…well, have you ever seen a perfume like it? With a super, super cute design, the SO… Fragrance Smooch Vixen EDP has notes of blackcurrant, ginger, and warm coffee—a deep scent with base notes of sweet toffee, liquorice, almond, and tonka bean— that leave behind a lingering impression. Trust me, I’m adding it to my cart right now.
Fastrack Solo Perfume
Now I know Fastrack is a sports accessory brand, but don’t hate on it before you try it! Sports companies like Nike also have their own line of fragrances and you have to believe me when I tell you that they are some of the best sprays I have ever used.
The Fastrack Solo Perfume has an enticing mix of spicy and fruity top notes, that set the stage for a sensory journey. The base of the scent is enriched with patchouli, and woody amber along with notes of cedar and vanilla; a hint of pepper adds a final, exhilarating twist.
Honestly, these budget-friendly perfumes really demonstrate that smelling good doesn’t have to come at a high price. Whether you’re drawn to floral, fruity, woody, or aquatic fragrances, I’ve given you a bunch of options—so, explore these fragrances and elevate your scent game without breaking the bank. Smelling good has never been this easy!
