Cheap And Chosen Attractive Fragrances

I have always been a great perfumer. I love the pretty little bottles and how they look grouped on a tray on top of my dresser, I love spraying on a fragrance in the morning and immediately feeling a little more put together and flirty, and I love feeling a whiff of a favorite scent when I wash in a jean jacket from a night before. Perfumes make me happy, okay?

That said, I am well aware that my perfume buying habit is not the most financially sound. Sure, full-size perfume bottles last for years, but they can be very expensive and don’t often go on sale when beauty retailers or department stores run sales. Plus, there’s always the risk of shelling out $200 on a specific scent only to get tired of it over time or associate it with a period in your life that you just don’t want to be reminded of anymore. (The power of smell and memory is real, y’all!)

So when I found a fake perfume for one of my favorite scents that would save me literally hundreds of dollars, I knew I had to pick it up (and share it with you all, of course!). Read on for the best new way to shop for perfume 100 percent guilt-free.

my favorite scent

My favorite fragrance of all time is Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum, a fragrance I discovered in early 2020 when an influencer couldn’t stop talking about it. This fragrance certainly isn’t cheap, but I was able to find a discounted bottle at Poshmark. As soon as it arrived in the mail, I was hooked. I get so many compliments every time I wear this scent, which happens quite often. The aroma is musky and woody with a floral component. It can definitely be worn every day, but I like to save it for nights out at my favorite fancier spots in NYC or wear a bit before dinner parties.

After almost two and a half years, the bottle I bought is running low. I went to Amazon to see if there were any deals and ended up finding what really is the best: a travel-size roll-on perfume that mimics this exact scent and is only $7.99.

People. When I tell you that I added this fragrance to my shopping cart in the fastest possible way, I am not exaggerating at all. The fact that I found a replica of my favorite bougie scent for the same price as a sandwich at my local deli is insane to me. Also, because the roller bottle is small, I can easily store it in my makeup bag whether I’m at home or on the go. And this fragrance smells as good and exactly as the real thing. Just read the Amazon reviews if you don’t believe me!

Since placing this order, I’ve bought two more affordable rollerball fragrances: one that mimics Le Labo’s Santal 33, which is another one of my all-time favorites, and one that’s supposed to be like Byredo’s Mojave Ghost. They are both fabulous, and I can’t stop using them.

If you’re a perfume addict yourself, have a best friend who loves a $$$ fragrance but can’t buy her the real deal, or are looking to stock up on some travel-size goodies, you’re welcome. I can’t wait to try even more scents after using these three, that’s for sure. Happy spraying!
