5 Best Perfumes for Women for around $25
Glow Spray by Jennifer Lopez

This Eau-de-toilette aerosol spray is one of the most remarkable products by Jennifer Lopez. I didn’t have to think twice before including it in my list of best perfumes for women for around $25. In fact, in 2018, Paper Magazine entitled it the best celebrity perfume in a long time.

This sheer fragrance helps in the expression of one’s true personality and creates a fresh aura. I also love the unique bottle design. Like Vera Wang Princess EDT, this scent is also floral and fruity with amber and vanilla accords. However, I think it makes you feel a little fresher than the latter.

The glow would be ideal for use during the day. However, if you want, you can wear it at night as well. This fragrance is also mostly for females who are at least 17. Silage ( Scent trail) is also great. Moreover, you will smell fruits and flowers for at least 4-6 hours after just one-time spraying.

Again, if you are in search of some oceanic, airy, or woody scents, you may have to scroll down.

  • Key Notes: flowers, fruit, amber, and vanilla

Best Perfumes for Women for around $25
Shi by Alfred Sung

Now, this is a great aqua/oceanic fragrance, which deserves to be in this list of best women fragrances around $25. Shi by Alfred Sung is the reflection of balance and harmony in the surrounding. With initial impressions of fig leaves and water Lilly, this fragrance does not fail to impress anyone. Also, it seamlessly collects three natural elements-metal, wood, and water- in a beautiful bottle. Therefore, don’t think twice before adding this moving scent to your collection.

I LOVE how Shi instantly freshens you up. This clean, crisp, and light fragrance lasts you for a good amount of hours. Spray it one time and you are good for the whole day. This is one of the fragrances I love to smell on ladies of all ages. You will find Shi being called an ‘Adult fragrance’ at most places. However, I still strongly believe that it’s made for teenage girls as well. Like ALL other fragrances in this list, Shi by Alfred Sung has an amazing scent trail.

  • Key Notes: Fig Leaves, White Lily, Frangipani

If I had to choose one word for Jessica Mcclintock EDP, it would be ‘LOVE’. This light, basil, and citrus fragrance glide into the list of best perfumes for her for $25 like margarine on a glass board. This perfume is often been thought to smell like the Lily of the Valley. Therefore, many women have chosen it as their signature fragrance.

The soft and sensual smell is ideal for people who tend to get a headache from powerful smells. Additionally, it has a long-lasting and has great silage. If I were to choose a giftable fragrance, Jessica Mcclintock EDP would instantly come to my mind.

This fragrance will work great for older woman. Its because of its lightness and sensuality. However, this doesn’t make it any less of a dream fragrance for teenage girls and young ladies.

6. Britney Spears Fantasy EDP Review

Britney’s Fantasy EDP is my grandmother’s signature fragrance. I remember her using it from when I was roughly four years old. Even now, you will always find a bottle of Britney Spears EDP on her dressing table. There is much more to Fantasy than an attractive bottle embedded with Swarovski crystals.

As the brand itself says, “the bottle locks up a ‘love potion’ inside. “

Based on my personal experience, I would say that Britney Spears is right about her fragrance. As I would spritz some of this perfume on myself whenever I’d walk past my grandma’s perfume shelf, its key notes are imbibed in my mind.

Fantasy is a highly sensual and gourmand scent. However, not the kind of sensual which gives you a headache. It opens up with tart fruits. However, this only lasts for a few seconds. After this, notes of white chocolate and jasmine dominate the scent. For someone who loves the chocolatey scent, Fantasy is an 8 on 10! It is long-lasting and has great silage. The ideal age range for this perfume is between 18-30. However, don’t think twice before ditching this age specification like my grandmother.

Fantasy Britney Spears
  • Key Notes: Top notes of red lychee, golden quince and kiwi, Heart notes of jasmine, white chocolate and orchid, base notes of musk orris root and wood.
  • Brand: Britney Spears
  • Age Range: Adult and Teenagers.
  • Item form: Liquid EDP, spray

7. Mauboussin’s In Red EDP Review

Celebrating fruity, oriental and woody scents, Mauboussin’s In RED EDP is a game changer. Femineity, refinement, and delight are some of the words that will come to your mind once you smell this fragrance. Its Diamond-shaped bottle radiates sensuality, luxury, and passion. For these reasons, it is one of the best perfumes for women for around $25.

Initially, you would smell some addictive fruity notes of red apple followed by an exotic touch of Bulgarian rose and red peony. These eventually dry down to Ambrox and milky wood. IN RED Eau De Parfum will last on your body for around 8 hours leaving a gentle scent trail wherever you go. If applied on clothes, In Red EDP will be even more long lasting.

I think it’s mostly for women who are 18 and beyond. Moreover, it’s ideal for use during special occasions and night time events.

Mauboussin – In Red EDP

  • Key Notes: Read Apple, Red Peonee and Bulgarian Rose, Milky Wood, and Ambrox
  • Brand: Mauboussin
  • Age Range: Above 18

8. Giorgio Beverly Hills EDT Review

Launched in 1981, Giorgio Beverly Hills is a classic oriental fragrance. The nose behind this was Bob Aliano. Although it’s a loud fragrance, it does not have a way too overpowering effect. Therefore, I find it to be one of the best perfumes for women for around $25.

Notes of gardenia rose, orange flowers and sandalwood dominate the scent. Many customers believe that Giorgio Beverly Hills EDT is one of the best daytime fragrances. I would recommend it to college and high school girls who love floral fragrances. This EDT gives you a sharp and fresh sensation. On the skin, it lasts for up to 4-6 h. However, when sprayed on clothes, this Giorgio will last slightly longer.

However, I still think that the bottle could have been a little cuter. Comment down your thoughts too.

Giorgio Beverly Hills-Floral, Oriental & Fresh Scent EDT

  • Key Notes:  rose, gardenia, sandalwood and orange flower
  • Brand: Giorgio Beverly Hills
  • Age Range: Teenagers and Adult
  • Item form: Liquid

9. Happy By Clinique Miniature EDC for women

Although the usual bottle of Happy by Clinique will cost you much higher, the miniature one nicely makes it to the list of best perfumes for women for around $25.

What I love about this miniature fragrance is how it easily fits in your bag and you can carry it around all day. It’s a nice and sweet floral fragrance that will instantly freshen up your morning. As far as longevity is concerned, Happy will last you for 4 hours max. Normally, you will see the effect gone within 3 hours as we are discussing the EDC version here.

Happy by Clinique mainly has floral and fruity accords. But, I must admit that it has a very diverse blend. It is much more sensual and soothing than most other floral/fruity fragrances. If you want a version that lasts longer than 3 hours, I will suggest you buy the bigger bottle with a higher concentration such as EDP or EDT.

Happy by Clinique Miniature

  • Key Notes: Top notes: Bergamot, boysenberry, honeysuckle, Middle notes: Bush flower, grapefruit, moss, Base notes: Freesia, lemon Hawaiian wedding flower
  • Brand: Clinique
  • Age Range: Adult
