Walmart has stepped up its women’s departments, including clothes, accessories, shoes, and beauty. The chain has long carried your favorite drugstore brands of make-up.
But did you know that Walmart carries designer perfumes as well? If not, here are seven perfumes to keep an eye open for!
Best Perfumes From Walmart In [currentyear]
7. Daisy by Marc Jacobs
If musky, heavy perfumes are not your thing, then Daisy by Marc Jacobs could very well be your thing.
According to Allure magazine, “Marc Jacobs Daisy is the polar opposite” of what the writer there calls the “Grandma smell.”
There are many perfumes, especially designer ones, with more than a hint of that musk in the undertones of their scents, so Marc Jacobs Daisy is a welcome change.
It’s bright and floral, but also fruity, reminiscent of a handful of juicy ripe berries. It’s playful, simple, and makes the wearer feel fresh while smelling fresh.
All in all, Daisy by Marc Jacobs evokes carefree youth, whether matching the wearer’s young energy or making those of us well into adulthood feel a little more whimsical every day.
It sells at Walmart in two sizes, a 1.7-oz. bottle for $53.99, and a 3.4-oz. bottle for $71.99.
6. Bamboo by Gucci
Straight off the bat, Bamboo by Gucci will hit you with notes of bergamot (a citrus fruit that looks like a textured lime), lily, and orange blossom.
If Daisy by Marc Jacobs is for young people, Bamboo is an entirely grown-up scent, with the steadying base notes of sandalwood, vanilla, and amber.
On Fragrantica, the commenters think this is a terrific perfume for a professional setting, so if you go into the office and are looking for something to spritz on, consider Bamboo.
One reviewer on Walmart’s site said the fragrance is “nothing like anything else I have.”
However, if there is one complaint all around about Bamboo, it’s that it doesn’t last super long, so reapplications are necessary throughout the day.
This famous-name designer perfume sells for $93.98 at Walmart.
5. Bright Crystal by Versace
Versace’s Bright Crystal bottle definitely goes the literal route, with an oversized oval stopper cut to resemble a gleaming, behemoth gemstone.
But what else would you expect from the perfume that is purported to have been created as a homage to the great Donatella Versace’s favorite fragrances?
The people certainly enjoy it, with one reviewer on Walmart’s page gushing about the “heavenly” scent, which is bright with citrusy yuzu and pomegranate.
Another reviewer on the Walmart page also lauds the retailer for its super-fast shipment of the product – faster even than Amazon.
You have three options at Walmart for Versace Bright Crystal, including a 1.7-oz. bottle for $40, a 3-oz. bottle for $57.99, and a 6.7-oz. bottle for $88.50.
4. Eau de Parfum by Jimmy Choo
In the early 2000s, every fan of Sex and the City fantasized about being able to afford Jimmy Choo pumps.
Today, those same women might not be able to swing $2,000 shoes still but can take home a bit of that glamorous brand with their signature Eau de Parfum.
The fragrance starts off sweet, with notes of orange and pear nectar, before deepening into a floral tiger orchid and rounding out with the base notes of Indonesian patchouli and caramel.
It’s a fragrance that suggests luxury, sensuality, and femininity, and it’s currently rated a 4.5 out of 5 on Walmart.com.
“I was surprised how much I like it,” one reviewer commented, “I can’t stop smelling it!”
Unlike a few of the other fragrances on this list, the Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum apparently has fewer issues staying put for more than a few hours, too.
You can get this scent at Walmart for $53.87 in a 3.3-oz. bottle.
3. Clinique Happy Heart
Having been around for about 20 years now, Clinique Happy Heart is a gorgeous classic.
The original version, Clinique Happy, veers more citrusy in my opinion, while Happy Heart veers more floral – and, as the name suggests – more romantic, making it lovely for date night.
It’s a clean fragrance with an essence more whimsical and innocent than some of the more sensual scents on this list.
The gorgeously feminine water hyacinth blends perfectly with light, airy scents of mandarin and cucumber; and even better, this perfume has staying power.
Walmart sells a 1.7-oz. bottle for $35.68, as well as a 3.4-oz. bottle for $48.97.
That same latter bottle sells on the Clinique website for over $80, so you are really saving by buying it through Walmart.
2. Be Delicious by DKNY
Another oldie but goodie, the DKNY Be Delicious is iconic, both in terms of its adorable shape and color – like a granny smith apple – and the delectable scent.
DKNY, of course, stands for Donna Karan New York, and Be Delicious conjures up the youthful, playful energy of the Big Apple.
Along with the expected apple scent, there are notes of cucumber, grapefruit, rose, and violet, as well as a hint of white amber and sandalwood.
It’s just $47.99 for a 3.4-oz. per bottle at Walmart, a price one reviewer on the product page calls “amazing for the size,” especially compared to retailers like Macy’s.
1. Eau De Parfum by Chloe
It might seem crazy that the same brand you see walking down a Hollywood red carpet is also present on Walmart shelves, but here we are.
The Eau De Parfum spray by fashion house Chloe is a fresh and feminine scent meant to enhance the wearer’s sophisticated confidence.
Classy without being stuffy, free-spirited without being immature, scents like freesia and peony, as well as lily and rose, and amber and cedarwood give the wearer a luscious aura.
You can purchase a 2.5-oz. bottle for $75.88 or a 1.7-oz. bottle for $58.98; the latter is almost half-price at Walmart versus what you’d pay at the brand’s website.
Walmart has always been consumers’ destination for discount goods, but its perfume selection, both in stores and online, makes it a destination for luxury goods, too.
From Marc Jacobs to Gucci to Jimmy Choo, all the brands you know and love are at Walmart, and many of them sell for a fraction of the price you’d find them in department stores.
