How Did We Find The Best Fragrances Under $100?

Armani Code Bottle & Package On DeskGiven that fragrances are a subjective matter, it is a challenging process to fairly evaluate them. However, by using our in-house Bespoke Unit Fragrance Formula we a provide balanced and quantified scoring in all our reviews.

When reviewing a particular fragrance, we also score it according to its value for money. Whilst this only accords for 4% of the final score, it’s a useful aspect that allows us to establish this very list.

We take into account the recommended retail price as well as the one paid when establishing this. Furthermore, we only base the score on 100ml (3.4 Oz) bottles or the nearest available volume.

This means that we can assess the various costs between fragrances according to the same scale. We find that this is fairer as comparing the price of a 50ml bottle of premium fragrance to 200ml of a budget one would skewer the final results.

Once we have all the data, we assemble it into the spreadsheet and filter out the low overall and value for money scores. We can then select the different price ranges and build out these lists.

What Next?

Are these fragrances over your budget? Not to worry! We also offer a list of the best fragrances on budgets of both $50 and $30. Just jump back to the top to see the other guides that we offer.
