Going local: These seven local perfumes are the perfect alternatives to expensive high-end fragrances – Style

From Sapphire to Bonanza and Colish, these brands offer perfumes ranging from woody to fruity and sweet notes while being long-lasting and local.

If there’s one thing the government’s short-lived import ban taught us, it’s the importance of buying local. With the price of just about everything going up, we decided to go on the hunt for local alternatives to our favourite products and found that there are several local alternatives to high-end perfumes that are not only pocket-friendly but also long-lasting.

We found brands like Khaadi, Outfitters, Maria B, Junaid Jamshed, Bonanza Satrangi, Colish and more that have their own signature scents. While many blew us away for their unique scents, some got us for their longevity and aesthetically pleasing packaging.

Here are seven perfumes from six local brands that you should give a try.
