Perfume has been always a part of everyone’s style. Unfortunately, most people cannot afford to buy the best perfume, no matter how much they love its scent and aesthetic design. That is why most are looking for alternatives to have it without paying that much. Thus, the rise of fragrance dupes in the market.
Also, people run from lower class or imitation perfumes even when buying perfume online because:
- Some people are savvy yet they cling to have that particular perfume.
- Fragrance dupes are the best back-up especially if their original scents run out.
- Sometimes using fragrance dupes can be practical to use for special occasions. The worry to damaged or broken is lesser than handling the original ones.
Fragrance Dupes that are Cult Classics
Lidl Suddenly Madame Glamour- Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
This Chanel Coco is one of the brand’s favorite perfume to wear. Aside from its oriental floral scent that lasts long, its bottle is very uniquely sophisticated as well. But once you smell Lidl Suddenly Madame Glamour, it’s aroma surprisingly almost the same as Chanel Coco (only the lighter version)! Also, despite the bottle is entirely different, it is still pretty looking and way beyond its cheap price.
Avon Eve Truth- Marc Jacobs Daisy
Marc Jacobs has been one of the prestigious fragrance that dominates the world. One of its floral scents, Marc Jacobs Daisy is one of its popular iconic scents that never fails to uplift especially every summertime. Luckily, Avon has its Eve Truth that guarantees to smell exactly like the popular Marc Jacobs brand. What’s fascinating is that Eve Truth was created by Laurent Le Guernec who once worked for Marc Jacobs!
Superdrugs Layering Lab Exotic- YSL Black Opium
YSL Opium has been one of the favorites intensely sweet and spicy aroma, however, its expensive price makes this perfume a dream waiting to come true. Not until Superdrugs created Layering Lab Exotic. With its basically the same smell to the YSL, it can be a great alternative, though the smell doesn’t last that long. Anyways, with its cheaper price, it’s still a good buy.
Milton Lloyd Summertime- Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
If you love richly floral with peppery aroma, Flowerbomb is probably one of your dream perfume. Good thing there’s Milton Lloyd Summertime that’s ready to make your dream aroma a reality. It may be entirely different from its packaging and has a lesser sillage, but its great resemblance to the Flowerbomb still makes it worth the try.
Superdrug Layering Lab Blossom- Thierry Mugler Alien
Loving unique aroma? Thierry Mugler Alien can satisfy your craving to have a distinct scent. Cannot afford it? Superdrugs’ Layering Lab Blossom comes to the rescue. This, with other Layering Lab variants, was a success in producing similar scents that it became a wide hit in the market.
Primark Pomegranate and Black Tea- Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir
Primark has always been known for having its aromatic range of perfumes. This is what made Jo Malone and its Pomegranate Noir become a well-loved scent in the market. Its resemblance to the Primark’s Pomegranate aroma made its way to be appreciated by everyone across the globe.
Lidl Aura En Rose- Lancome La Vie Est Belle
Lancome and its La Vie Est Belle are one of the most-sought perfume in the world because of its elegant and sophisticated aroma. That is why it is quite surprising to see Lidl’s Aura En Rose and have its similar scent to this popular Lancome Brand. It may not dupe the whole picture and aroma, but this is still a surely a gem.
Next Summer Sun- Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess
The mixture of floral and coconut aroma is what makes Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder one of the best perfumes. Fortunately, for savvy women who want to have this, there’s Next Summer Sun that has the same aroma.
Zara Rose- Dior J’adore
A luxury smelling perfume, Dior J’adore is a fragrance that’s worth your loyalty. But it’s frustrating that you cannot have this that much because of its price. Good thing there’s Zara that gives justice in producing the same scents like Zara Rose without giving headaches on its price.
