Shoestring budgets do not afford sun-soaked trips, so when you're at a breaking point and need to escape the dreary slush of February in New England, spritz your way to zen. These five fragrances ($10.99 to $135) cost a fraction of a flight to the Caribbean, yet pack quite a punch when it comes to salty, citrus, and soothing scents. Crank up the heat and settle in to an imaginary vacation.
