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.
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.

The best Cyber Monday and Black Friday perfume deals (that come expert approved)
If you're feeling overwhelmed, here are the Black Friday and Cyber Monday perfumes that I genuinely think are too good to pass on—and I've even stocked up on a couple myself.
Best Black Friday Perfume Deals Under £30
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
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
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.

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.
Best Black Friday Perfume Deals Under £100
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.
