Memorial Day weekend is finally here, which means two things: a leisurely three-day weekend (yay!) and sales on sales. There undoubtedly will be tons of beauty sales to peruse, but if you’re ditching the best perfume sales during this long weekend, you should definitely reconsider.
Yes, we know Black Friday usually reigns supreme as the go-to shopping season of the year, but we at Allure believe that beauty shoppers need to stop sleeping on all the amazing fragrance sales happening during Memorial Day weekend. Retailers like SkinStore and Ulta Beauty have tons of options to choose from, whether your taste is ultra-fruity or intensely earthy. Not to mention, a quick scroll through these sales will reveal brands that are never — seriously, never — on sale, like Mugler and indie fragrance darling Glasshouse Fragrances.
The only problem you may have is trying to sort through all of the eye-catching sales, which we’ve already taken care of for you (you’re welcome). Below, you can check out some of the most jaw-dropping discounts that you’ll find on fan-favorite fragrances.
Currently, Ulta Beauty has a major hair-care sale going on, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spot deals in the retailer’s fragrance department. Though Ulta Beauty has yet to announce MDW-centric perfume deals, you can scour its sale section to find a treasure trove of best-sellers at a discount, including Mugler’s highly-coveted Angel Eau de Parfum.
No word yet on Nordstrom’s dedicated Memorial Day beauty sales, but while we wait for the savings to roll in, you can peruse the retailer’s online sale section year-round to try something new on a budget. As its name suggests, Sam Edelman’s Signature Eau de Parfum is bound to be a mainstay in your fragrance collection, thanks to its ultra-floral blend of mimosa accord, green florals, and sandalwood.
In case you haven’t heard, one of Dermstore’s biggest sales of the year is happening soon. From May 22 through 31, you can save 20 percent off across the retailer’s skin, hair, makeup, and most importantly, fragrance categories with the code SUN. Sure, Dermstore is known for its lot of skin-care products, but it’s also stocked with luxury fragrances and indie up-and-comers in the perfume industry, like Glasshouse Fragrances.
Okay, we know Vacation is a sunscreen brand, but did you know that they also have an amazing, beach-inspired eau de toilette? The best part is that you can score this sunny, coconut-spiked fragrance for less than $50 during the brand’s 20 percent off sitewide Memorial Day Weekend sale, which is happening from May 26 to 29. You can also score free shipping on orders of $45 or more and a free branded visor on orders of $75 or more.
Fun fact: indie body-care brand OffCourt also has a few fragrances to shop, including this sweet and floral Fig Leaves + White Musk Eau de Toilette. Oh, and did we mention that the brand is offering 15 percent off sitewide from May 26 through 29 with the code MDW15?
5Sens is the new kid on the fragrance block that you need to know, and now the brand’s offerings are more affordable than ever. From May 26 through 30, you can save 20 percent off just about everything 5Sens has to offer (except the brand’s Discovery Kits).
Here’s the lowdown on Sephora’s Memorial Day offerings. As of right now, the retailer hasn’t announced an official sale. With that being said, there are still tons of discounted fragrances added daily to Sephora’s sale page, including the Derek Lam 10 Crosby Looking Glass Eau de Parfum. It’s a delicate concoction of warmth and floral notes, thanks to its key notes of magnolias and tonka bean, and will be less than $50 over the holiday weekend.
Elizabeth Arden is an iconic brand known for its makeup, skin care, and of course, fragrances. Here’s some good news: from May 22 through 30, you can enjoy a multitude of tiered savings when you use the code REFRESH at checkout. Here’s the breakdown:
