Smelling good never goes out of style, so it makes sense that fragrance deals are hard to come by. Lucky for all of us, Black Friday perfume deals have always answered a handful of prayers. Last year, some of our favorite brands and retailers featured exciting scent discounts just in time for the holidays. If you didn’t know, Black Friday is no longer just for 4K TVs (although you might as well). It’s for scoring new, elegant signature scents, and in 2022, that meant discounts of up to 40 percent. So, just thinking about 2023’s Black Friday beauty deals potential has us raring to go.
We poked around at some of our favorite multi-brand retailers like Sephora and Nordstrom and pulled some prime picks we hope to see on sale this year. We’re talking perfumes, colognes, candles, perfume oils. Buzzy brands like Best of Beauty Award-winning Lake & Skye and Ellis Brooklyn made the list. There’s something for everyone, whether your olfactory vibe is floral, woody, spicy, or mysterious and unnamable.
Black Friday 2023 is right around the corner, so scroll through and check out our picks as November nears. Our fingers and toes are crossed for decadent perfume deals. Won’t you join us?

Everybody knows that Sephora is a great spot for fragrance sets and gifts year-round, but it also runs juicy Black Friday sales on full-size scents from popular brands. We have our eye on Versace’s Dylan Purple Eau de Parfum, a warm, bright floral.
Another luxury fragrance we’re hoping to see a sale sticker on is Gucci’s Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum — a 2022 Best of Beauty winner. This layerable scent has notes of pear, gardenia, and brown sugar and comes in such a pretty bottle.

There’s also Clinique’s perky Happy Eau de Parfum, a fan favorite with notes of red grapefruit, bergamot, and Hawaiian wedding flowers.

Even though warmer weather is months away, transport yourself back to summer with Vacation’s titular Vacation Eau de Parfum.

Best 2022 Nordstrom Black Friday Perfume Deals
Maison Margiela Replica Jazz Club
AllSaints Sunset Riot Eau de Parfum
We’re putting a spoon under our pillow for a bountiful 2023 Black Friday sale at Nordstrom — specifically for Maison Margiela’s Replica fragrances. Their Jazz Club scent is technically a men’s cologne, but good smells don’t discriminate. It smells like rum, vetiver, and a touch of tobacco leaf, reminiscent of a cozy, dark-wooded club. Scroll through, read some of the brand’s vivid descriptions of their scents, and pick one that speaks to you.
