Good Chemistry perfume is affordable and smells UH-MAZING!

Searching for the perfect signature scent? Good Chemistry probably has it. This clean perfume company was originally featured as a Target exclusive brand and it has become a favorite of mine for many reasons, beyond how amazing it smells!

If you’re looking for an affordable perfume, Good Chemistry’s scents will make you smell like a million bucks for as little as $9.99!

By the way, this post is NOT at all sponsored, I just couldn’t resist spreading the good news about how awesome this perfume line is for both women and men! It’s truly the best.

Finally, a clean perfume you can trust!

If you’ve ever gotten a perfume rash, you know that it’s enough to make you never wear that scent again. With so many perfumes containing parabens, sulfates, and irritating mineral oils, it’s tough to find one that won’t put your pretty skin at risk.

Fortunately, clean perfume lines like Good Chemistry are growing in popularity and helping us hide our musk one perfume bottle at a time.

You’ll be pleased to know that all of the Good Chemistry perfume formulas are:

  • Made with essential oils instead of harmful phthalates
  • Cruelty-free and made from safe raw materials
  • Vegan and made in a 100% renewable energy space
  • Free of harmful parabens and propylene glycol

There’s a Good Chemistry perfume collection for every mood.

Picking out the right perfume can turn into a major ordeal. After you’ve smelled 4 or 5, you’d better hope there are coffee beans around to reset your sense of smell.

Good Chemistry takes some of the smell-testing work out of the equation by categorizing their perfumes by mood. From their Vibrant + Playful collection to their Good + Grounded collection, you can narrow your search based on your personal preferences. Now that’s perfume with personality!


The Good Chemistry scents are so thoughtful!

Good Chemistry perfumes have the most spot-on scent descriptions to make your selection easier. The Queen Bee scent claims fresh florals with notes of black currant and amber, and it truly delivers that smell!

It’s unlikely that you’ll pick the wrong scent with the thoughtful description that every perfume offers as a guide.


Good Chemistry has unisex scents you can share with your significant other.

His AND her perfume?! That’s right! A few of Good Chemistry’s scents are dude-approved and smell great on both men and women. My husband and I actually share a Copper Canyon rollerball and he loves the way it smells!

If you’re in the mood for something with a little more spice and a little less sweet, the Cool + Collected scents are just what you need.


Good Chemistry’s Long-lasting perfume is surprisingly affordable! 🙌

Good Chemistry perfumes are not only long-lasting, but they’re also surprisingly affordable, especially considering the fact that they’re vegan and cruelty-free. Most clean perfumes cost a pretty penny but these ones retail from just $9.99-$24.99.

I love how easy it is to throw the rollerball purfume in my purse or pocket because I always forget to give myself a spritz before walking out the door.

You can purchase the regular 1.7 oz. bottle for $24.99, or the convenient rollerball size is only $12.99! These affordable perfumes also make the best gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions!

    Perfect timing as I’m almost out of perfume. Giving the Wild Child and Marine Mist a try. Plus Target is offering a $5 gc w/$20 beauty and personal care online purchase right now. Win win!

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Yay! I hope you like those scents, Nicole! They all smell so good. And thanks for sharing that sweet deal!❤️

  2. bizzymama

    I discovered the Queen Bee a few summers ago and have been buying it ever since. Light, floral, slight vanilla undertone. Love it as an everyday perfume❤️ Definitely worth smelling😉

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      AGREED, bizzymama! I am obsessed with Queen Bee, it’s such a good summer scent, too!

  3. hellotashakitty

    can someone tell me if these are long lasting?

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      In my experience, the Queen Bee and Copper Canyon scents have stayed with me throughout the day and are more long lasting than other name brand perfumes I’ve tried. A great way to make the perfume last longer is to spritz it onto your hairbrush before brushing your hair (not directly on your hair though). I do this all the time and I swear it makes a difference!

  4. linds

    I’ve heard good things about this but have never tried it! Now I want to! Thanks for the suggestion!

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Yay! Linds, you will love this perfume. It smells heavenly!🙌

  5. Toni Potts

    Thanks for the share. I have a vegan and cruelty free Daughter. I’ve been trying to do the cruelty free thing but it’s really hard.

    • Jackie

      I’ve been cruelty-free for about 5 years now. It gets easier. Once you start finding brands that you know are CF and that you like – it takes out a lot of the guesswork. Leaping Bunny and Cruelty-Free Kitty are both great resources that I use all the time.

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      I hear ya, Toni. It’s surprisingly hard to find certain products that are totally cruelty-free, but I think a lot of companies are becoming more supportive of it which is encouraging!❤️

  6. silieolme

    These small amazing. I have been wearing the Woods scent for a few months and love it. It’s very rustic and light but I get the most compliments when I wear it out. If I put it on in the morning, I do typically refresh it if going to dinner later in the evening, as it does fade a little, in my opinion. Can’t go wrong with these!

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      YAS! I love that scent too and it really does smell woodsy with a hint of spice.🙌

  7. Samanthology

    Thanks Hip2Save! This post couldn’t have come at a better time. I have maybe one or two sprays left of my NEST perfume, and although I love their scents and have been wearing them for a few years, I am itching to try something new, but have been wary of buying something expensive online that I haven’t had a chance to smell yet. At this price, I’m not too concerned. Now I just have to pick a scent. I’m torn between Magnolia Violet, Queen Bee, and DayDreamer, they all have good reviews. Anyone tried these and have a preference?

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Hey Samanthology! I’m so glad you read this at the perfect time!🙌 I haven’t tried the Magnolia Violet scent, but I do love Queen Bee and Daydreamer. They’re both pretty refreshing with sweet citrus notes, but not overly sweet. I’d say Daydreamer is a little sweeter than Queen Bee though. I hope you love whichever scent you go with!❤️

  8. Arielle Bella

    Your post mentions a musk scent, which one is that? I am a scent junkie but so many scents are not long lasting. Do these last?

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Hi Arielle! The Copper Canyon scent is the one I referred to as musky, it has a more masculine sweetness if that makes any sense! It’s a powerful scent, but the woodsy/spice notes balance out the sweetness perfectly in my opinion. The rustic woods scent is a bit musky, too and very refreshing!

  9. everest716

    I love their Firecracker scent, it’s woodsy and I am happy to find out it’s $5 gift card time at Target again!! thanks! Time to stock up! Just a side note to think about regarding rollerballs…I purchased some scents in rollerballs at a Victoria’s Secret clearance sale a few years back They were sealed. We started using and then I read that skin cells get in the rollerball when you rub them on and I looked at the bottle in the light and I was totally grossed out! They bottles were used only a few times after showering, but had floating particles in all of the ones we started using, and not in the brand new ones. From the wrist! You won’t see it until you look…once you look you will always opt for a spray bottle if you can!

    • Taylor (Sidekick)

      Wow, that is CRAZY! I had never heard that before, thanks for sharing! Happy Target shopping!😀
