The best long-lasting perfumes will stay all day and linger into the night too, but that doesn't mean they come with a hefty price tag. Here are 14 options that we swear by, and they're all available for less than £70 - bargain!
Whether you're spending the whole day in the office or running about after the kids, a long-lasting perfume can be the key to feeling put together when you're struggling to find time to freshen up. But while some of the best perfumes of all time are known for their stellar staying power, they might set you back hundreds of pounds - and, unfortunately, even the best perfume dupes are unlikely to last as long as their designer counterparts.
But that doesn't mean that you have to splash out to smell great all day. If you know where to look, there are plenty of budget-friendly scents that will last for hours after the first application and with this in mind, we've rounded up our favourite fragrances and tested their staying powers. From floral scents to spice and musk, these are the best long-lasting perfumes that really work for busy mums and women on the go - and the best part is that they all cost £70 or less.
