I’ve waxed poetic about my love for perfume time and time again. As someone who almost never wears makeup and avoids acrylic nails like the plague, it’s the one beauty vice I never feel bad about indulging in. Plus, who doesn’t want to smell like paradise in a bottle on any given day (especially the hard ones)? The only caveat is that perfume is kind-of expensive, making perfume mist a worthy addition to anyone’s collection.

For the most part, brands with iconic scents usually pair their eau de parfum with a body spray, thus making it easier to stick with a signature scent. But for the most part, fragrance mists are in a league all their own, with scent stories that not only rival the pricier cult favorites but take the pressure off your wallet too. I’m personally invested in, well, anything from Bath and Body Works, who I’ve long considered the authority of inexpensive smell-goods. However, there are so many other standout bottles I find myself drawn to as well because they cover the gamut of my many moods. Some days I want to smell like vacation in a bottle. And sometimes I want to smell like the left-over steam coming from my shower. Variety is the spice of life, right?

The only downside of a fragrance mist compared to perfume is that because it has a lower concentration of fragrance, which means you may feel the need to apply more throughout the day. However, if the trade-off is a fraction of a typical perfume price, I’d say it’s still worth having on your dresser. So if you want the best of the best, here are some of today’s most buzzed-about perfume mists that may just replace that fancy bottle you love so much.
