A signature scent should be timeless and wearable, in any situation and at any age. So here best perfume gifts under $100 that are perfect for any woman in your life.
Like any other beauty gift, perfume is extremely personal. Most people associate certain scents with memories—both good and bad—making it difficult to know what kind of fragrance brings a sense of joy and peace to the person you’re shopping for.
That being said, there are so many of the best perfume gifts out there to fit anyone on your list. If you’re one of the lucky ones who knows exactly what they like (either specific brands or perfume notes), then opt for the larger, more luxurious gift centered around one particular scent. If there’s any uncertainty at all, go for the mix-and-match assortments, complete with smaller sprays, miniature bottles, and samples that target various scent profiles: fruity, floral, musky, sweet, and so on.
Typically, perfume gifts are big-ticket items, but I’ve made sure to include many options, including ones that work as stocking stuffers or add-ons to bigger presents. And if you’re lucky, you might even help the woman in your life find her all-new signature scent. That means she’ll think of you every single time she wears it — a win for you, no?
But, of course, with so many fragrances on the market, finding the best perfume gifts can be a challenge. Even for me, I haven’t found my signature scent yet. Beauty counters and online storefronts are stocked with the latest and greatest from endless perfume brands, but how do you know which will be your new go-to?
The iconic fragrances on my list of the best perfumes of all time have a cult following for a reason—their irresistible aromas never get old. I round up the best women’s perfumes for every occasion, scent preference, and season, including best-selling picks, perfumes for women that men love, the best perfumes for the workplace, and more!
