Hey guys! I come to you today with another top 5 list, this time it will be cheap and good perfumes that we can easily find in online stores.
They are wholesome and beautifully scented perfumes, although we can find them at bargain prices. For some time now I have been looking for such occasions to expand my fragrance collection with these unusual, sometimes forgotten perfumes. This statement is the result of just such sets. Because it is not necessary to spend huge sums on a bottle of perfume – you just need to know them a little to find real gems for pennies! The ones I chose have beautiful, classic fragrances that can successfully compete with perfumes for several dozen zlotys. Their extremely low price is only due to the fact that they are leftover inventory, end-of-series or celebrity perfumes that do not sell well in our country – which does not mean that they do not cost a fortune abroad … which have disappeared from our market for various reasons. In this way, you can cheaply hunt pearls that did not catch on with us, although they are of decent quality. Or sometimes a slightly vintage and elegant perfume that will not appeal to everyone, especially young people who are used to very sweet and delicate Eau de Parfum. However, I think that it is worth getting to know perfumes that we can buy for a few zlotys and thus try out fragrance notes that we would not usually reach for. If you are interested in how these perfumes worked for me, I invite you to read the rest of this post. used to very sweet and delicate Eau de Parfum.

Tosca, Maurer & Wirtz perfumes
Tosca by Maurer & Wirtz is a Floral Aldehyde fragrance for women. Top notes are aldehydes, orange blossom, bergamot and lemon. Heart notes are clove (spice), iris root, jasmine, ylang-ylang and rose. Base notes are sandalwood, amber, musk, benzoin, civet, vanilla and vetiver.
Capacity 30 ml
Price 6-7 PLN
This tiny bottle looks inconspicuous, plus a strange price – all 6 zlotys in online perfumeries. But don’t let this fool you! Perfume unfolds most beautifully on cold days, and the Cologne’s fresh opening quickly turns into a very pleasant, but quite elegant, feminine fragrance; with flowers, but not sweet, I would just write – a rich bouquet of white flowers with irises and a sprig of jasmine. With a hint of amber and vanilla and a bit of refreshment thanks to citrus: bergamot, orange and lemon. Ylang-ylang, narcissus and neroli flowers develop beautifully on the skin. They are similar in category to Private Collection Estee Lauder and Blue Grass Arden. Some people compare it with its climate to Shalimar and even to Chanel No5. I can definitely agree with that. The smell of Tosca will not disturb anyone in public places. It’s not that old-fashioned and dusty that it draws attention, it’s nice and warm, elegant, yet intriguing. It has a nice tail, decent projection.
It is a great fragrance for colder days, for every fan of original perfumes. Classic and quality for the buck. A timeless gem, really worth trying.
Coty L’Aimant , eau de toilette for women
L’Aimant by Coty is a Floral Aldehyde fragrance for women. L’Aimant was launched in 1927. The creator of the fragrance is Vincent Roubert. Top notes are neroli, bergamot, peach and aldehydes; middle notes are jasmine, geranium, ylang-ylang, rose and orchid; base notes are vetiver, musk, sandalwood, virginia cedar, tonka bean and vanilla.
50 ml capacity
Price: PLN 16
They are truly timeless and elegant perfumes that continue to surprise new generations of women with their quality. I have heard many times opinions that this perfume is a much cheaper version of Chanel No5. I have to agree – the fragrance is very similar to a classic perfume and it is definitely a good, cheap option to test before investing in Chanel.
It is a very elegant, aldehyde fragrance composition that suits every outing – elegant and evening, as well as summer dresses. For women of all ages, although you need to like these climates to fully appreciate them. L’Aimant is soapy at first, then creamy, woody and delicately floral, musky. The smell stays on the skin for about 5 hours, the projection is very decent – arms length up to three hours, then a light cloud. The bottle itself is beautiful and elegant, like a diamond, and looks great on a shelf, next to much more expensive cosmetics. A position really worth trying!
Eau de Gaga, Lady Gaga perfumes
Eau de Gaga by Lady Gaga is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women and men. Eau de Gaga was launched in 2014. Top note is lime; middle note is white violet; base notes are leather and woodsy notes.
Capacity 15 ml, 30 ml
Price: PLN 13
It is a fragrance that surprised me, rather for confident, elegant women who do not like candy scents. Rather for an elegant evening, when you want to smell different than everyone else – beautiful and original. It is also unisex: leather, wood chords and lime. Everything is perceptible, harmoniously combines and harmonizes. It starts with a citrusy opening and softens towards a sweet woody leather note.
I heard the opinion that they smell similar to Viktor Rolf’s Flower bomb perfumes, but you have to judge for yourself, for me – very similar, but more in a masculine, original style than floral. But they are certainly beautiful and durable enough. Good projection, the fragrance stays for 2-3 hours, then softens. Undoubtedly, a perfume worth attention – unique, elegant and original for funny money, you must have one in your collection.
Pret a Porter, Coty, a perfume for women
Pret a Porter by Coty is a Oriental Floral fragrance for women. Pret a Porter was launched in 1996. Top notes are orange, violet leaf, pink grapefruit, rose and tamarind; middle notes are freesia, magnolia, nutmeg, cardamom and black pepper; base notes are oakmoss and sandalwood.
50 ml capacity
Price PLN 15
A classic fragrance that has been familiar for years, yet still topical and very contemporary. They are still regularly sold in perfumeries, but on the Internet we can buy them much cheaper. As for me, a must have for every season – a perfect, light perfume for everyday use, for the city, shopping and also for the office. They will not disturb anyone for sure, and we will feel fresh and elegant. Versatile and graceful, they also have decent parameters for the price, but they won’t stand out from the crowd. A fragrance that can easily compete with Mexx and Hugo Boss, i.e. typical, light classics for the office. Also great for a gift for a mother who will surely be remembered for a pleasant stay, or for a young person who knows nothing about the world of perfumes, but still wants to smell good. I definitely recommend it to everyone!
Chanson d’Eau, Coty, Eau de Parfum for women
Chanson d’Eau by Coty is a fragrance for women. Chanson d’Eau was launched in 1995. Top notes are mandarin orange, basil and lavender; middle notes are jasmine, cardamom and mango; base notes are tonka bean and sandalwood.
Capacity 50, 100 ml
Price PLN 19
An explosion of wonderful freshness and juicy greenness. Basil is intertwined with accords of lavender, summer citrus and cardamom, but quickly moves to the base notes. It is not a one-dimensional or typically green tea fragrance. The parameters are average, the durability is decent, but in my opinion Chanson d’Eau is definitely worth buying when we want to take a break from floral, sweet scents.
This is my favorite perfume for summer and spring, it makes me sunny and holiday-like right away, it goes well with a summer dress and bicycle trips. Of course, the price is also encouraging to buy – it’s worth trying when you want to feel fresh and lively. My garden must have, I strongly encourage you to test yourself, because the price is tempting to try.
As you can see, it is not necessary to spend huge sums on a perfume bottle. You only need to know them a bit to find real gems for pennies! The ones I chose have beautiful, classic fragrances that can successfully compete with perfumes for several dozen zlotys. Their extremely low price is only due to the fact that they are leftover items, end-of-series or celebrity perfumes that do not sell well in our country. In this way, you can cheaply hunt pearls that did not catch on with us, although they are of decent quality. However, I think that it is worth getting to know perfumes that we can buy for a few zlotys and thus try out fragrance notes that we would not usually reach for. I strongly encourage you to do that! It’s not hard to spend a thousand on fashionable perfumes and smell like everyone else.
Do you know these fragrances? Have you had the opportunity to use them?
