This Is The Best Week To Score Major Deals On Fragrance

We’ve long fantasized about a shopping app that applies airfare-tracker technology to our favorite beauty buys. By pinpointing the best days, weeks, and times to save on our regular shampoo, for example, we’d know exactly when to stock up and how to avoid paying retail altogether. That's the dream, right?
Until that app is developed, savings site RetailMeNot is giving us the next best thing: company intel on how to score the best fragrance deals of the year. With perfume consistently weighing in as one the most expensive beauty products in our arsenal, the discovery is a revelation. After analyzing extensive data on the volume and quality of fragrance deals offered during each week of 2016, the savings site uncovered the smartest time to shop for perfume each year — and surprisingly, it’s not ahead of Mother’s Day or even Christmas, but... next week.
As the site found, some scents can be had for close to a 40% discount come the fourth week of May. To up the ante, RetailMeNot is offering its own cash-back deals — many of which can be used in tandem with retailers’ Memorial Day offers. For next week only, see how to access some of the lowest perfume prices of the year, ahead. Thanks to analytics, this summer may be the sweetest(-smelling) yet.

Thanks to a RetailMeNot online rebate, Perfumania shoppers can get $5 back on online purchases of $75 or more and $15 on those topping $115. Even better, the rebate can be combined with other deals, like the site’s own already-slashed prices on select fragrances. Among them is Issey Miyake L’Eau d'Issey, which reminds us of how white flowers smell right after it's rained.

Rebate available through May 27, 2018 at RetailMeNot.

With a $20 rebate offered on purchases of $200 or more at Neiman Marcus, we’d splurge on the new Atelier Cologne Clémentine California Cologne Absolue, a citrus scent inspired by warm L.A. nights. This giftable box set is stocked with both full- and travel-size bottles and a leather bottle sleeve, which can be engraved with any sweet nothing you like.

When muggy weather kicks in, we suddenly want nothing to do with scents that feel too heady or sticky-sweet. A refreshing antidote can be found in the ultra-clean Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest Pour Femme, the latest iteration in its iconic Light Blue line. With this$10 refund from online purchases of $50 and $25 cash back on online purchases of $125 or more at Macy’s, we can’t think of a better time to splash out.

If you’re like us, you probably have a fragrance sitting in your Sephora cart already. (We didn’t forget about you, travel-friendly and klutz-proof Jo Loves White Rose & Lemon Leaves Paintbrush Gel!) Now’s the time to set it free with this $5 rebate on purchases over $100 — and double down by combining it with another Sephora deal (like a free trial-size fragrance or mini Milk Makeup Kush High Volume Mascara).

Rebate available through May 31, 2018 at RetailMeNot.
