PERFUME or aftershave can feel like an extravagant purchase, but since it lasts for such a long time, it's an expense that many of us love to treat ourselves to again and again.
But if you've got a nose for a bargain, you'll know that November is a great time to sniff out excellent Black Friday fragrance and perfume deals and discounts, whether you're after Gucci's Bamboo for a Christmas gift or Miss Dior Cherie for yourself.
*Remember, just because an item is in the sale, it doesn't mean you can't find the same product, or similar, elsewhere. Always shop around to make sure you're getting the best price.

When is Black Friday?
One of the biggest sale days of the retail calendar, Black Friday falls on the day after Thanksgiving each year.
Thanksgiving is an American national holiday when US citizens celebrate the year's harvest and give thanks for their blessings.
This year, Black Friday falls on November 27 so it's the perfect time to treat yourself or to invest in big gifts ahead of the Christmas period.
Leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we'll be sorting through some of the different retailers' perfume deals to bring a selection of the best prices out there.
When is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday falls on November 30 this year. As the online-only extension of Black Friday, it's another great chance for shoppers to pick up more deals on perfumes and aftershaves.
Most retailers which take part in Black Friday offer discounts on Cyber Monday too, so there's plenty of opportunity to make a saving this November.

Fragrances differ hugely in price from retailer to retailer so it's always worth shopping around to make sure you're getting the best deal on the brand you're after – with perfumes, there's always a chance that you might be able to find the same product cheaper elsewhere.
Look out for fakes offered on dodgy sites though… if a deal looks too good to be true, then it probably is.
Is Black Friday a good time to buy a fragrance or perfume?
It's an excellent time to treat yourself to a new scent as there are so many Black Friday fragrance and perfume deals around.
If you're really canny, you can also use the opportunity to get ahead on your Christmas shopping – perfume gift sets are always in the sales too.
In the run-up to the sales, see if you can do a bit of detective work to find out what fragrances your loved ones are after.
By the time Christmas rolls around, they'll have completely forgotten you ever had the conversation and will think you're a mind-reader!
What are the best perfumes and fragrances you can buy in 2020?
There were loads of new perfumes released this year including Givenchy Irresistible, Miss Dior Rose N'Roses, Gucci Guilty Love Edition, Nars Audacious, Yves Saint Laurent Atlas Garden and Chloé Jasminum Sambac.
One of our favourite releases of 2020 was Coach Dreams Eau de Parfum – it's supposed to remind you of a Californian road trip with notes of bitter orange, gardenia, musk, cactus flower and Joshua Tree, yes, Joshua Tree.
If you can find any of these newly released fragrances at a discount, be ready to snap them up.
