Perfume dupe smell-a-like List


FRAGRANTICA is a great site for everything perfume, there's so much info and the reviews are great and even has the option to see smell-a-likes for other perfumes! This feature is a great tool for finding inexpensive alternative's. I know alot of women who enjoy smelling great for their partner but hate spending an extortionate price for a bottle of nice smelling water because there's so many other thing's which their money could go to (same here!). So I decided to collect information from around the web to help! 

Just as the title say's the following list will contain perfume dupe's; the high end with cheaper alternative's. Afterall, it smells the same, it's just that designer brand's like to mock the consumer and mark up the product price just because it has their name on, which is quite naughty!!

Before that, I wanted to mentioned that if you prefer to use oil's rather than alcohol based spray's (which is the preferred method in Islam, so no alcohol enter's the body through the skin), here are some alternative's which are also made to smell like the high end brand's .
 Perfume oils for MEN
If you'd like to see some reviews and recommendation's on the perfume oils by The Perfume Parlour (who trade under Base Notez on ebay), take a look here

I shall be making another post on way's to use perfume which doesn't suit your skin, but you still like the smell of and don't want to throw away! e.g. spraying a cotton wool ball and placing it inside of the vacuum bag/cylinder to make the house smell fresh whilst cleaning. 
Stay tuned for that.

Lidl's Suddenly Madame Glamour = Channel Coco Mademoiselle (Yes, really! read the review below)

Shoppers turned their noses up at Coco Mademoiselle in favour of Lidl's Suddenly Madame Glamour

CHANEL has lost out in a smell test to a cut-price supermarket scent.
Ninety per cent of women in the test turned their noses up at £61 Coco Mademoiselle in favour of Suddenly Madame Glamour from Lidl at £3.99 for 50ml.
The test was carried out on a panel of 150 women by an independent expert.
John Bailey, founder of the Perfumers Guild, described Suddenly Madame Glamour as having “fresh citrus and floral notes merging to an alluring, exotic Oriental accord”.
He added that it was a “timeless, affordable and classic fragrance”.
The German owners of Lidl, at which sales have rocketed during the economic downturn, are now striving to keep up with demand.
Spokeswoman Georgina Hall said: “We’ve seen huge numbers flocking to stores.
“It shows a perfume doesn’t have to cost a bomb to make you feel instantly glamorous.”

  1. Paco Rabanne is the name taht looks familiar to me. I have been using it and it's very good.

  2. I like the perfume bottles, very elegant and lovely. I want to buy some and give to my fiance.
    Just wondering if you also have a pheromones perfume for women?

  3. I wana thank you for providing instructive and qualitative stuff so often.
    best smelling perfume women

  4. This is perfect. Most perfumes are just too strong and distracting for me.

    Buy Branded Perfumes Onlines, Select from the best range of Perfumes at sanrosscollection.com. You can buy Boles de Olor and Bolas de Olor

  5. Do you know of any good dupes for the Dream Angels Heavenly perfume/wash/lotion?

    1. Hi, if that's Victoria Secret's scent then I've been told it smells like Armani Lei (She) and so does Define from Next which I have and which smells almost identical to the Armani. Hope that helps.

  6. Do you know anyone who can replicate scents? The bath shop that made the one I love went out of business and I need a supply. Thanks.

  7. Great post with lots of smell-a-like fragrances!

    This site has loads of smell-a-likes too, some that aren't in your list (although your list also has some that aren't on the site)

  8. Hiya check out my Zara dupes for this summer! http://expressyourself05.blogspot.co.uk/
