Think about all those times that you visited a store for fragrances and immediately connected to some fragrance which had undertones and slight hints of a scent that you could not do without buying it! Yes, perfumes really can invoke feelings! Perfumes do not just have a lovely fragrance or make you feel refreshed and ready to go, but they also do wonders in making you feel confident and calm depending upon the type of fragrance you are using.
Now, Perfumes also have an interesting play on our emotions for we have all been through those days, due to a messed up timing or because we were running late, we forgot to spray on our favorite scent and then spent the rest of the time feeling uncomfortable or just not as fresh as we would have liked to. However, whatever perfume you buy, it should be long lasting. Often we purchase a lovely fragrance that loses its intensity in a couple of hours. Such perfumes no matter how good the fragrance is, it will be ultimately a bad investment. Now, longevity perfumes do not mean that they have to be very expensive either.
It is a common misconception that, all perfumes that lasts long cost a fortune. Well, there are quite a number of cheap fragrances out there in the market that stay long and smells great but are will not burn a hole in your pocket. Given below is a list of some really great perfumes that cost less than $5! Have a look!
