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. While there's no denying the quality inherent in pricey perfumes, especially those from reputed luxury brands, an extravagant budget does not need to be a criterion set in stone when you're hunting for an amazing perfume. 


Luckily for us, and most of the mango population, there are a few rare gems in the world of perfumes that give you all that an expensive perfume will, without emptying your bank account. Our beauty experts have cherry-picked 5 perfumes for women that cost less than INR 1,000 but smell so much more expensive than that!
