Because I Love a Bargain—13 Perfumes Under $100 Worth Your Attention

Let's be real here: Perfumes can get pretty pricey. Sometimes, a high-end fragrance might run you over $300. There's no denying that fragrances are a worthy investment—good ones last a long time and often wear better—but that doesn't mean that some of the more affordable fragrances aren't incredible in their own ways.

I love my expensive and luxe fragrances, but I also feel like everyone needs an affordable option, too, one that you wouldn't mind wearing every day and spritzing with abandon. Sometimes, we all just want to drench ourselves in perfume and not feel like we're wearing $35 worth in one day.

Luckily, there are quite a few affordable (under $100) fragrances to choose from. In fact, many of them smell just as good as, if not better than, the pricier picks. These fragrances are complex, have great wear time, and are unique enough to please even the pickiest people. And you might even feel a little jolt of joy knowing you didn't spend a fortune on them. Keep reading for the best fragrances out there that won't break the bank.
