Fragrances are one the most personal beauty picks for a reason. Spritz once, and it can give anyone close to you an unspoken statement of who you are. A whiff can also transport your senses to places, invoke deep emotions, and even let you revisit memories in a way no other beauty products can. The right scent can truly define you and your mood, making it the most powerful accessory you’ll ever wear.
Finding a new fragrance is an exciting beauty exploration but let’s be real, it can also be a major investment. But fret not, good scents exist at every price point.
To help you get started, here are some of our favorite affordable picks that will make you smell great without breaking the bank:
