  • What a terrific thread, thank you all.

    Can anybody help with Smell-a-Likes for:

    Givenchy - Very Irresistible (Mum-in-Law's fave)
    Essence Rare - Houbigant

    Thanks.
  • Great thread, so many cheap perfumes that smell just as good as designer ones. There's a shop called Xtra's which sells all sorts of discount beauty stuff, they have perfumes by World Class Fragrances (google it) and although online they wont tell you, in the shop on the shelf it'll say "if you like -- you'll like..." and best bit is the bottles are 50ml for £2.99!

    Ones i know are:
    Bondage = jpg for women
    Summer Sky= D+G Light blue
    Great lakes= cool water woman davidoff
    Buddy= hugo boss woman
    new york dolls= hugo boss femme
    Calibre UK= burberry touch
    Spirit of Heaven= Angel
    Spirit of Shadow= ghost
    Summer Flowers= flowers by kenzo
    Success = Issy Miyake
    (great names eh :rotfl:)

    they do men's too but dont know which ones smell like which

    They dont have my faves tho :( Miracle by Lancome and Madame by JPG, anyone know some smell a likes for these?

    Any mens similarities you have noticed?
  • Have just stocked up on some M&S 'smellalikes' (Isis - Issey Miyake & Per Una Ltd Edition -Chanel Coco Mademoiselle I think!) as it's 40% off today only.

    I bought Next Gold Eau De Toilette last Xmas and I love it, only problem is that it doesn't last the day. Does anyone know if this is a copy and if so what the original is?

    Thanks

    I love Next Gold EDT too and bought it because it smells similar to Cinema by Yves Saint Laurent.

    Hope this helps x

    I'm still looking for a smellalike for Dioressence. Can anyone help as I'm finding it extremely difficult to get it now as it's been discontinued.

    Sorry to be a bit vague but I *think* IMHO that Avon's Treselle Mystique smells like a lighter version of Stella McCartney's Stella.

    I could be wrong though - I'm terrible with frangrances. I like it anyhoo and it's reasonably priced :) If you get the brochure sometimes there's a 'scratch n sniff' page.

    In fact, many of the Avon ones are probably smell-a-likes if you know your perfues better than me!
