3 Tips For Saving Money On Perfume

by Jayden Fisher

If you're like a lot of people, making sure that you smell good is probably important to you, and you might love using perfume to achieve the perfect scent. However, as you might have noticed, perfume can be very expensive. Luckily, if you follow these tips, you can save quite a bit of money on perfume while still ensuring that you smell great.

1. Buy Testers

Many department stores and other stores that sell perfume actually sell "testers," which are the bottles that they put out for other people to sample when they are shopping for perfume. In some cases, tester bottles are rather plain and don't have the same packaging as other bottles. Some might also have some of the perfume missing from them from people who have used them to sample various scents. However, if they are marked down enough, it can be worth it. Additionally, some places that sell perfume to the public actually sell unused tester bottles for cheap prices, so this is something to look into as well.

2. Use the Body Spray Instead

Many companies that make perfume also sell body spray or body mist in the same scents. You can often get a large bottle for much less than you would pay for the perfume. The scent often is not as strong as the scent of an actual perfume, but it can be a good way to get the same scent for a cheaper price. Plus, some people actually prefer the slightly lighter scent of a body spray versus a stronger perfume, especially for daytime wear.

3. Consider Homemade Perfume

Some people make and sell homemade perfume using natural ingredients and sell them online or in local stores; this can be an affordable option over buying costly designer scents, and it can also be a good option if you have sensitive skin, if you have problems with the chemicals in some perfumes, or if you are concerned about the environment. There are also a lot of tutorials and recipes online that can help you make your own perfume; this can be a good option because you can save money, learn a new hobby, and customize your own scents to suit your own tastes and preferences.

As you can see, there are a few different ways that you can save money on perfume. If you want to smell your best without draining your bank account, consider giving these tips a try.
