Not all affordable perfumes are fruity and sugary. If you're looking to upgrade your everyday scent, you might want to check out these colognes and perfumes with fresh and refined notes. 


1. Avon Far Away Glamour 

P899, available on

This dark-bottled fragrance is great for the office just as it is for special occasions. The base of this perfume is seductive black musk but it's softened with floral notes of orange blossom. One spritz leaves you smelling mature and so refined. 

2. Marks & Spencer Autograph Blush 

Price available upon request, available in Marks and Spencer stores 

For a light feminine scent, you'll love stashing this miniature bottle in your work bag. A single spritz leaves a fresh fruity-floral trail of bergamot, cassis, and violet, but it gracefully mellows down into a sheer, powdery finish. Its base notes are amber, vanilla, and musk. 


3. The Body Shop White Musk Eau de Parfum 

P1,995, available on Lazada and in all The Body Shop stores

Not into smelling overly sweet?

This light fragrance is a top-seller in The Body Shop. Its signature musky scent is balanced out with a blend of lily, iris, rose, and vanilla to give you a clean smell. 


4. Zara Femme

P1,000/100mL, Shopee 

Elegant perfumes are a hidden gem in Zara. The retail store holds a wide selection of eau de toilette, from light, floral to musky perfumes that won't go over P2,000. 

For an everyday scent, spritz on Femme, a warm and comforting fragrance, with notes of peony, vanilla, and musk.
