By Somdutta Mazumder

A good perfume can make you feel like a million bucks, but that doesn't mean you'd want to spend just as much to get one! A popular misconception that crops up during perfume shopping is that only expensive luxury perfumes can smell good, last long and make you feel like a goddess.
