There is a rumour about cheap perfumes in South Africa. It is said that they smell worse than rotten eggs and the ones that smell good wear off really quickly.
As it turns out, this rumour is pretty true for most cheap perfumes on the market.
The smell is sometimes too harsh or too faint and within a couple of hours, it wears off and leaves you smelling like a mixture of sweat and perfume (not a really pleasant smell).
However, there are many cheap perfumes in South Africa that not only smell great but can offer you protection for up to 24 hours.
Below, I’ve handpicked some of the best cheap perfumes in South Africa alongside their prices. You can easily get these perfumes from Jumia or any online perfumery in South Africa.
