Unassuming agents of the fragrance world, hair perfumes have long played second fiddle to the main event – the pillar edp or edt.

But while they may have once been viewed as superfluous, albeit delightful, indulgences, hair perfumes are taking on fresh appeal with cost-conscious consumers due to their lower price tag.

At a time when inflation has risen exponentially, making luxury and designer perfumes less affordable than they were just a year ago, hair perfumes offer consumers a way to experience the same scent at a fraction of the cost of the regular perfume.

They give an option to consumers who still want to buy their desired brand, rather than opt for a dupe by different brand.

Karla Woolley, Buying Manager at The Perfume Shop, tells Cosmetics Business: “Hair mists are a great entry point price into a fragrance category so a perfect opportunity for the customer to access luxury beauty.”
