I dare you to try to find a more affordable and better-smelling scent.

When it comes to trying out trial perfumes, I tread lightly. I have a hard time finding a single scent that I like enough to consistently buy without breaking the bank. That’s until my sister bought me this MIX:BAR Glass Rose brush-on fragrance pen on her weekly Target run. 😍 Thanks, sis!

When I tell you it was as if the perfume angels shined a spotlight on this fragrance pen, I’m. not. kidding. I was convinced that this had to be an expensive product because it is easily the best scent I’ve ever worn! You can imagine the shock value I had when she told me this Target perfume was…wait for it…only $11.99. 🤯

Side note, this is totally not a sponsored post. I just had to share my current favorite perfume with you all, especially because it’s so inexpensive! 🙌

The Glass Rose scent is definitely a confidence booster. Floral perfumes can be intense, but as the name suggests, similar to glass; it’s a delicate, light interpretation of roses, as if roses were in a bouquet mixed with other faint flower scents. As if it couldn’t get better, all products are cruelty-free and vegan. 👏

I’ve been carrying the fragrance pen (the one that comes in the smaller 0.14 oz. size) in my purse everywhere I go. Similar to a roll-on, this is a brush-on, which I surprisingly preferred. You just shake the pen, click the bottom of it until the quick-drying gel comes out. From there, I rub my wrists together and on my collar bone, and it lasts me the entire day!

Once I opened up my For You Page on TikTok, it was all over my feed. I’ve seen some people compare this Target perfume as a dupe to Ariana Grande’s eau de parfum collection, and, although I haven’t personally tried her collection, MIX:BAR is definitely worth a trial run. There’s no harm done in using a product that feels expensive but doesn’t cost a pretty penny!

MIXBAR scents in full size bottles

The entirety of the MIX:BAR collection items, available exclusively at Target, are all under $20… even for the full-size versions! And if my favorite Glass Rose fragrance isn’t your jam, the product line has six other unique scents. These scents include Blackberry Tonic, Wood Elixir, Vanilla Bourbon, Cloud Musk, Coconut Palm, and Tangerine Squeeze

And the collection goes further than just perfume!

In addition to the brush-on or spray-perfumes, they also have hair and body mist that costs even less at only $8.99! For a 5 oz. bottle of this intoxicating scent I can’t get enough of, that is seriously a budget beauty steal in my opinion!

If you’re unsure which scent is your favorite and want to try multiple, they offer an Eau De Parfum Scent Discovery Set – 5pc which includes five samples of different scents for only $13.99. Of course, I’m still partial to Glass Rose, which has a five-star rating on Target’s website, might I add. But, in case my opinion isn’t convincing enough…

Here are some other reviews this MIX:BAR Target Perfume has received from users:

“Absolutely great – long-lasting rose perfume. Not heavy like a grandmother scent but light and modern.”

“I usually stay away from florals. I like sweet perfumes but not sweet AND floral. The Glass Rose is perfect for me. It’s light and fresh and doesn’t scream ‘I smell like a flower!’ but the rose scent is really nice.”

“I absolutely love this perfume. I have it in the bottle and the travel roll-on. Don’t hesitate to purchase this scent”

    Thanks for this post! I’m fussy about my perfumes, too. I’m going to try the sampler!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re so welcome! Hope you love them all!

  2. Cheryl

    If someone knows, does the hair and body mist come in a glass or plastic bottle? Would like to buy for my sister but she is not allowed glass containers where she lives.

    • Kaitlyn (Hip Sidekick)

      I believe it’s plastic!

  3. Deb

    Just got mine. Love it! Thank you.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! You’re welcome, Deb! That’s great to hear!

    Does anyone have any personal opinions about the other scents….? They seem to all have pretty decent reviews.

    • Colorado Amy

      I went to the store last night, smelled them all and tried a couple on. I tried on Glass Rose and Cloud Musk and liked Cloud Musk better than Glass Rose. Vanilla Bourbon is good but reminded me of an old perfume I used to wear 20 years ago called Vanilla Soft Musk. I smelled some grapefruit in Tangerine Squeeze and I’m not a big grapefruit fan. Coconut Palm, Blackberry Tonic and Wood Elixir smelled good and I plan to try those on the next time I’m there. I hope to find 1-2 favorites and then I will buy those. I wish the sample pack had bigger bottles of each because those small sample sizes don’t seem like a good value to me.

    • Suzmorea

      Both the cloud musk and glass rose smell very good to me and I have an extremely picky nose.

  5. Tracey

    I picked up the Glass Rose and Tangerine Squeeze today and used my Target deal (thanks, Kris). They had testers for all of the scents at the Target I went to which helped to decide which ones I liked the best.

    • Kaitlyn (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome, Tracey!

  6. Katherine

    I am obsessed with the Westin Hotel scent ‘white tea’. Does anyone have a dupe for a perfume scent that would have that smell?

    • Rita Darnell

      I think Bath & Body has a White Tea scent-but only online.

  7. Luna

    I LOVE the Wood Elixir. It’s a beautiful scent. Cloud Musk is my 2nd choice.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You had me at Cloud Musk! I love anything with a musk smell to it. Thanks, Luna!

  8. laura-24

    I have issues with roll on/ brush perfumes. What ends up happening is your skin cells and oils get in the perfume and end up looking nasty

  9. A

    Do you have any rough idea how many days this last? Thanks!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi A! For Kaitlyn this lasts the entire day! – “You just shake the pen, click the bottom of it until the quick-drying gel comes out. From there, I rub my wrists together and on my collar bone, and it lasts me the entire day!”

      Hope this helps!

  10. Stormy

    Picking up today as a stocking stuffer for my teen. Thank you! She’s not into perfume yet, so I think this pen will be a great start for her.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Stormy! Hope she loves it! I’m thinking of grabbing it as a stocking stuffer for my teen too!

  11. Lacey

    I believe the No 11 was posted here before (or maybe on another site…I don’t remember). I bought it and hated it. Description wise it was right up my alley. But I didn’t understand why everyone raved about it–I thought it smelled gross. That being said a ton of people seem to love it. *shrug*

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! Thanks for your honest thoughts on that one, Lacey. Sorry to hear you didn’t care for it.❤️ I have not smelled that one yet.

  12. Lora D

    I am a scent-aholic so when I saw this post, I immediately went online to check it out. It was sold out in most of the stores near me but I was able to order the Glass Rose, the Cloud Musk and the Vanilla Bourbon for pick up. When I went to the store I was able to smell the samples and I fell in love with the unique scent of the Glass Rose. I wore it to work this morning and I really liked how it wore throughout the day. I didn’t love the Cloud Musk but I do like the Vanilla Bourbon.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I’m so glad you were able to find them, and I love it even more that you found one you really like!
