You’re never fully dressed without perfume. Monsoons tend to dampen the beloved scents we spray on every morning, leaving us feeling dull and smelly after just a few hours of stepping out. Splurge on these long-lasting {and seductive} perfumes that we picked out for you to help you get going this monsoon.

One tipbefore purchasing any perfume, get a sample size of the same and see if it works for you. Perfumes tend to oxidise, so you’d want to check the staying power of it.

An absolute favourite of ours, Hypnotic Poison is an in-your-face seductive fragrance which lasts for days {which means your wardrobe will smell great, too}. The product is definitely worth its price, considering the longevity it offers. Also, it’s unfair how Dior’s bestselling J’Adore overshadows this gem of a product.

Where: Dior, DLF Emporio

Price: INR 5,300 for 50 ml
