When the warm weather comes around and the sun is shining, that heady (and heavy) perfume that was getting you through the dark winter days may start to seem a bit much. Summer calls for light, breezy scents that effortlessly carry you from the beach to the bar and give the allure of a relaxed unforced sexiness.
Often the best way to achieve that is to look for perfumes with lighter notes, but it’s also perfect to find a perfume that is under $200, since you’ll be using this as a ‘summer only’ staple. With so many to choose from, how can you even know where to start? To help out, we’ve found 5 of the perfumes for women that are under $200.
4Comptoir Sud Pacifique ‘Vanille Coco’
Comptoir Sud Pacifique is a relatively new perfume brand that offers exotic scents drawn from nature. These master perfumers have brought the absolute essence of the tropics to you in the form of their Vanille Coco perfume.
