Not all affordable perfumes are fruity and sugary. If you're looking to upgrade your everyday scent, you might want to check out these colognes and perfumes with fresh and refined notes.
1. Avon Far Away Glamour
This dark-bottled fragrance is great for the office just as it is for special occasions. The base of this perfume is seductive black musk but it's softened with floral notes of orange blossom. It's a refined, ladylike scent you'd want to have in your collection.

2. Marks & Spencer Autograph Blush
For a light feminine scent, you'll love stashing this miniature bottle in your work bag. A single spritz leaves a fresh fruity-floral trail of bergamot, cassis, and violet, but it gracefully mellows down into a sheer, powdery finish. Its base notes are amber, vanilla, and musk.

4. Zara Femme
Elegant perfumes are a hidden gem in Zara. The retail store holds a wide selection of eau de toilette, from light, floral to musky perfumes that won't go over P2,000. For an everyday scent, spritz on Femme, a warm and comforting fragrance, with notes of peony, vanilla, and musk.
