As a beauty editor, I usually think Cyber Monday is a bit of a con—but these perfume deals just make sense

With up to 60% off, even I can't say no

Black Friday Perfume Deals: A bottle of pink perfume floating in white space

I'll be honest, as much as I appreciate a great bargain, I'm not a big lover of Black Friday or Cyber Monday. As a beauty editor, I'm very aware of over consumption and waste, and sale culture just intensifies that awareness. When it comes to Black Friday and Cyber Monday perfume deals, however, I do feel a little differently. (Team Marie Claire are also sharing our editor-approved Black Friday beauty deals live right now.)

You see, the best perfumes out there are expensive. Trust me, I spend most of my days testing out the best perfumes—from skin scents to floral perfumes—and I can tell you one thing for sure: the very best perfumes in existence tend to have hefty price tags.

And while my love for all things fragrance is no doubt down to the luxury of it all, even I can't deny the appeal of the perfume deals to be had. In fact, I often recommend that anyone holds off buying the one luxury perfume they've had their eye on all year until the last week of November—because more often than not you're going to make a notable saving.

Tom Ford Café Rose Eau de Parfum, was £106 now £90.10 | Lookfantastic

Tom Ford Café Rose Eau de Parfum, was £106 now £90.10 | Lookfantastic

This is easily my most worn perfume of 2023, and it has won me countless compliments. It's the rose perfume for people who don't like rose perfumes.

Personally, I recommend utilising Cyber Monday and Black Friday fragrance deals cleverly. Instead of stocking up on loads of perfumes you simply like the look of, instead start thinking about the perfumes you've really longed for this year. It could be the bottle of niche perfume that just proved too expensive or the rich-smelling perfume you have had your eye on for months but never got around to buying.

Right now, retailers are already slashing their prices on some of the bestselling and luxurious fragrances. Both John Lewis and Harvey Nichols (both of which stock some of the most luxurious fragrances out there, including Chanel and Maison Francis Kurkdjian) are offering notable discounts on some of the most expensive perfumes around.

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Crush Cheirosa 62 Perfume Mist, was £22 now £17.60 | Lookfantastic

Although I say Black Friday is the time to invest in luxury fragrances, it's worth noting that this gourmand, TikTok-famous perfume mist smells just as expensive as some other fragrances on this list (and is also on offer). Oh, and you can get an extra 10% off today with code EXTRA.

Elizabeth Arden White Tea Eau de Toilette 50ml, was £32 now £24 | Boots

Elizabeth Arden White Tea Eau de Toilette 50ml, was £32 now £24 | Boots

This is one of those classic perfumes that I consider to be wildly underrated. It's fresh, skin-like and long-lasting all at once. Every time I wear it, someone has something to say—and they're always shocked when they see the price.

Caudalie Eau des Vignes Fresh Fragrance 50ml, was £31 now £13.96 | Sephora

Caudalie Eau des Vignes Fresh Fragrance 50ml, was £31 now £13.96 | Sephora

A very chic French woman I know swears by this Caudalie perfume, and I sort of stole her signature scent. This musky, iris scent is fresh and skin-like, making people think you just smell *that* good. It is an under-the-radar hero.

Best Black Friday Perfume Deals Under £50

Ouai North Bondi Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £54 now £40.50 | Cult Beauty

Ouai North Bondi Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £54 now £40.50 | Cult Beauty

Ouai's haircare is renowned for smelling absolutely divine, and this perfume is no different. Like fresh citrus mixed with a warming floral concoction, it's a light everyday scent that's wearable all year round.

Dolce & Gabbana L'Imperatrice, was £62 now £39.99 | The Perfume Shop

Dolce & Gabbana L'Imperatrice, was £62 now £39.99 | The Perfume Shop

When it comes to more affordable perfumes that smell totally unique, L'Imperatrice always comes out on top for me.

Nuxe Prodigieux Le Parfum, was £45 now £36 | Lookfantastic

Nuxe Prodigieux Le Parfum, was £45 now £36 | Lookfantastic

Another French-girl perfume, this stuff smells luxe beyond belief—like rich, liquid gold.

Best Black Friday Perfume Deals Under £80

Prada Infusion d'Iris, was £65 now £52 | Sephora

Prada Infusion d'Iris, was £65 now £52 | Sephora

While iris isn't a note that everyone loves (although I'm probably its biggest fan), if you like fresh, floral perfumes—you can't go wrong here.

Giorgio Armani Si Passione, was £92 now £69 | Lookfantastic

Giorgio Armani Si Passione, was £92 now £69 | Lookfantastic

Armani's Si is, hands down, one of the most beautifully wearable (and expensive-smelling) perfumes out there, but it's this iteration that wins my heart. Si Passione is soft, floral, sweet and wonderfully comforting all at once.

Prada Paradoxe Eau de Parfum 30ml, was £65 now £58.50 | Fenwick

Prada Paradoxe Eau de Parfum 30ml, was £65 now £58.50 | Fenwick

I'll admit, it was the way this perfume looks that had me interested at first. However, if you like wearably sweet smells, I promise the juice is every bit as good as the bottle.

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £64 now £57.60 | Lookfantastic

Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £64 now £57.60 | Lookfantastic

This is, hands down, the best summer scent of all time—like warm sunshine, sun cream and coconut cocktails. My shelf is never without a bottle

Yves Saint Laurent Libre, was £92 now £69 | Sephora

Yves Saint Laurent Libre, was £92 now £69 | Sephora

Libre is the perfume I find myself recommending most for those looking for an inoffensive evening scent—it's basically liquid gold.

Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza, was £92 now £73.60 | John Lewis

Acqua di Parma Colonia Essenza, was £92 now £73.60 | John Lewis

This is one of my top three favourite fragrances ever created. It's soapy, rich and categorically the most expensive-smelling perfume I've ever come across. Expect to receive compliments for days.

Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml, was £125 now £74.95 | Allbeauty

Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml, was £125 now £74.95 | Allbeauty

Serge Lutens is a niche perfume brand I simply adore, and it's so luxe that it is never historically included in Black Friday discounts. However, Allbeauty do have some impressive deals for 2023. This sweet, warm and rich evening perfume once had a waitress chase me out of a restaurant asking after it—she purchased it right there and then on her phone.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her PURE MUSC Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £87 now £78.30 | Fenwick

Narciso Rodriguez For Her PURE MUSC Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £87 now £78.30 | Fenwick

If you're into the clean-smelling, skin-like comfort of musk, believe me when I say that no musk perfume out there compares to this one.

Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £97 now £82.45 | Sephora

Dior Miss Dior Eau de Parfum 50ml, was £97 now £82.45 | Sephora

Whenever I compliment somebody on their perfume, there's a high chance they're wearing this floral bouquet from Dior. It's a palatable scent that feels exceptionally special.

Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche Eau de Parfum, was £99 now £84.14 | Harvey Nichols

Chanel Chance Eau Fraîche Eau de Parfum, was £99 now £84.14 | Harvey Nichols

I'm not sure how much more I can talk about this massively underrated Chanel perfume. It's fresh, crisp and undeniably expensive smelling.

Chloé Eau de Parfum Naturelle, was £95 now £85.50 | Fenwick

Chloé Eau de Parfum Naturelle, was £95 now £85.50 | Fenwick

Not only does this bottle of perfume win major sustainability points, but it is also one of the most exquisitely beautiful more commercial perfumes I have ever smelled. It is green, crisp and fresh, and it lingers on skin for many hours, smelling better with every hour that passes.
