Why are some perfumes so much more expensive than others on the market? And how are you supposed to find a signature scent if the options are out of your price range?If you don’t want to break the bank buying one of those designer fragrances, then DB Cosmetics has just the thing for you with our range of designer fragrance dupes. Perfume dupes are imitations of those well-known scents, including Chanel, Gucci Dior and more, just without the steep price tag, making them affordable for any budget.
Are perfume dupes good?
Like any product, there are high- and low-quality perfume dupes on the market. Fortunately, our range of fragrances is made up of some of the best perfume dupes to buy. This lets our customers have access to great designer quality fragrances for a fraction of the price. Not only are the best perfume dupes dead ringers for designer fragrances, they are a way to get nostalgic and remember those cherished, discontinued fragrances from your past.
Why are some perfumes so much more expensive than others?We all know that designers’ fragrances carry a hefty price tag. This all comes down to the quality and rarity of the ingredients and the packaging. The best perfume formulas have more oil in them than alcohol, ensuring that they are of a higher quality and will last longer on the skin, however this does increase the cost of production.
By imitating existing fragrances, the best designer fragrance dupes are able to cut down on costs by creating their own formulations and using simpler packaging. At the end of the day, you can’t judge a book by its cover, so test as many perfume dupes, designer fragrance dupes and the best drugstore perfumes as you can to find the right one for you!
How do you choose or find a signature scent?It’s always exciting trying a new fragrance, but there is something so appealing about having your own signature scent. To be sure to find the perfect fragrance for you, there are a few things to keep in mind. The first step is to experiment and find scents that you are attracted to. This will help pair down your choices so that you can find something that you want to commit to.
There are four main categories that fragrances are typically divided into – fresh, oriental, woody and floral. Another reason to test as many options as possible is because each scent can smell completely different on different people. The beauty of fragrance dupes, particularly designer fragrance dupes like our DB Cosmetics range, is that they provide you with the opportunity to experiment to your heart’s content without blowing your budget.
Tips on making perfume last longerWanting value for your money is only natural, so finding a way to make your perfume last longer is a great way of doing so. The best perfume dupes are richer in oil, using less alcohol in their formula. Alcohol evaporates more quickly, so the oil-based fragrance dupes are guaranteed to last longer on the skin. While original designer fragrances would be more expensive because of this, DB Cosmetic’s best perfume dupes offer an affordable, quality alternative for you.
One easy way to help your perfume last longer is to spray on the different pulse points, such as the insides of the wrists and elbows and behind the ears and knees. This is because the areas will warm up throughout the day, releasing the perfume scent as you move around.
Hydrated, healthy skin is more able to absorb perfume, which makes the scent last longer, so a regular moisturising routine can go a long way to making your fragrance last longer. Using moisturiser or lotion before spraying perfume is a simple step to making your fragrance last longer.
