These fragrances are totally influencer-approved!

Let's be real: As much as we love smelling luxurious every day, spending on a designer perfume does come with a hefty price tag. That said, we don't recommend splurging on a new fragrance on a whim without getting a whiff of it yourself. But in this pandemic-stricken world we now live in, going to the beauty counters in malls to sample scents is not always ideal, and we totally get that. So your next best option? Hearing it straight from trusted influencers and considering their highly recommended suggestions when deciding on your new bottle of perfume. Don't worry, we already did the homework and asked them to reveal their fave designer perfumes that were definitely worth the splurge! Now all you're left to do is take down notes.

SHOP: Filipino Influencers' Best Designer Perfumes That They Don't Regret Splurging On

1. Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette

"My personal fave designer perfume would be the Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette! I am obsessed with this scent and it truly is hypnotic, hence its name. It’s definitely worth every penny because for an EDT; it lasts and the scent profile is so distinct. It is a gourmand scent and I looove smelling yummy! This is perfect for times when you just wanna feel cozy yet sophisticated at the same time. Such a classic scent and I will never get sick of this." - King Sia

"I have quite a collection of fragrances but I find myself gravitating towards these 3 all the time. I love how these smell on my skin and how my mood immediately changes when I smell them. I am happier, more relaxed, and I also feel prettier! These are worth the splurge because I consider them as accessories. I don’t feel dressed when I’m not wearing any fragrance and I don’t leave home without them." - Kelly Misa
