Perfume is an accessory that not only is great for date nights or girls’ nights out, but also makes a fantastic Christmas gift for your girlfriend or wife. This year, there are many new fragrances from which to choose made by a plethora of designers. This helpful guide will assist you in finding some of the best perfumes for under a hundred dollars in all kinds of fragrances.
When shopping for perfumes this holiday season, there are always stores that have sales throughout December. Look for your advertisements on television for national chains like Macy’s and Dillard’s but also check your newspaper circulars and online sales for retailers that sell perfume including places like Amazon. If you find one-stop shopping that includes perfume online, take advantage of cheaper shipping when you buy more products and your perfume will be even more cost-effective.
Dolce & Gabbana’s new line of scents for 2009 includes three size bottles of Rose The One that has rose not only as a color of the bottle but also as the dominant scent. Other fruity and flowery scents add to the mystique of the all-powerful rose that conjures up a night of romance. Available at most perfume counters, a one ounce bottle is $60, 1.7 ounces goes for $70, and your best value is the 2.5 ounce bottle for $90.
Juicy Couture is one of the leading perfume lines for women and a year would not be complete without a new fragrance. Couture, Couture is the newest from the upscale perfume company. Fruits and flowers combine for a luscious scent that mixes mandarin and pink grapefruit with light sandalwood and honeysuckle. This scent is available for $65 for 1.7 ounces and 3.4 ounces is worth $85.
Prada’s L’eau Ambree is a simple yet elegant perfume that any woman will instantly love. Rose dominates again with a simple undertone of citrus and slightly musky amber for a scent that is not over the top and yet speaks to the beauty of perfume and women at the same time. Bloomingdale’s is selling this fragrance for $76 in a 1.7 ounce size.
Anna Sui’s Rock Me is a veritable inclusion on this list even though you can buy her 1.7 ounce perfume off of Target’s website for only $58. Like most other perfumes, she blends fruit and flowers with a combination of jasmine, honeysuckle, pear, and peach scents. Look for the guitar-shaped bottle in your perfume case.
With so many wonderful scents on the market, it was hard to narrow down a list. My last selection is Lola, a scent from Marc Jacobs. Nevermind the beautiful bottle it comes in, but once you smell this flowery fragrance you won’t go back. Roses and geraniums combine with a vanilla underlayer that provides an overall breathtaking experience. Lola is available for $65 in a 1.7 ounce spray bottle and around $50 for just one ounce.
