It seems bargain fragrances are the trend of the season as many retailers are now offering luxe-looking scents but for a low price.

Superdrug has been paving the way with its Layering Lab collection, but Boots might just be making a bid for the top spot with its newly launched Fragrance Edit – which features artisan scents from just £6 each, available in-store now and online from tomorrow.

  • This £3.99 Superdrug body spray is being hailed as a bargain dupe for Mugler’s cult Alien perfume

  • Poundland has new £1 'flawless' foundations – so we tested them on two different skin tones

The range consists of five scent categories; La Librairie, Pure & Co, Momento, Composition, and #Mood. Each one claims to use high quality ingredients that are blended together in a French perfumery house – giving them “artisan” characteristics.

But there isn’t just one scent for every category as each one has four or five different EDTs, body mists, body sprays and/or fragrance crayons within it. And under each category, these different sprays and EDTs use slightly different blends so you can really find the perfect match for you.

  • We compared this new £12 Primark hair curler to a £130 styling tool – with these surprising results

  • Experts reveal 84% of us are ruining our perfumes by storing them in the wrong place

If you’re not sure which fragrance to test out first, each of the five are made to cover your individual scent preferences. La Librairie blends floral and fruity notes – making it perfect for those who love the scent of jasmine and rose. Pure & Co is ideal for anyone looking for a fresh and light scent, as it pairs florals with vanilla.

Memento features “floriental” scents that combine citrus fruits with white flowers. Composition uses spicy and woody notes, for those that love a deeper scent. And finally, #Mood features fun and fruity ingredients like watermelon and blackcurrant – making it a great pick for teens.
