Best Women’s Perfumes Under $120

Published by Eric Lundeen on

Too many times, a list is created as the best (——) of (——) and it has ten must-haves. Why 10? Why not 5? Well, I suppose five is not enough, but maybe ten is too much. So I thought, let’s do7 best women’s perfumes under $120. After all, seven is halfway between 5 and 10. It’s July right now, the 7th month of the year. 7 can also be considered “lucky” (not to be confused with “unlucky” 13, see our June 20th blog to clarify.

When a woman thinks, “what is a must have?”, I consulted my sweetheart of nearly five years. We are not married yet; 5 years isn’t enough I guess; although sometimes it feels like 7 years. In a way, I hope she DOES NOT read this…lol!

Back to the topic, she says a must have is something that is desired, something that’s valuable, and most importantly something that makes a woman feel special.

So here are 7 must-haves:

Each of these fragrances is new, designer labels that most people can associate with. They are contemporary in time but established in relevance. In other words, could some classics like Chanel No. 5, or Shalimar by Guerlain, or White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor be on this list? Sure but in keeping with the 21st century, these seem more in with the times.
