Tesco have bought out some new perfume which look like Jo Malone dupes.
The pear and freesia and lime basil and mandarin ones are nice and smell better than the Jo Malone colognes.
They also have a pomegranate and honey one.
Also the perfume in the opaque bottles are really nice too.
I have bought the tuberose one for myself.

    Aldi have been doing Jo Malone smell-alikes for a long time.
    I buy the diffusers and candles for gifts.
    One friend specially likes the blackberry and bay, another friend likes lime, basil & mandarin, another friend likes pomegranate.
    Diffusers are £3.49.

    I did buy the LBM edt from Aldi but find the smell a bit antiseptic.

    Jo Malone has done a range of perfumes for Zara, "Zara Emotions" which come as a rollerball, spray or brush on.

    (You'll need to scroll down to the emotions section)

    not quite perfume but Aldi have Moulton Brown dupes for handwash. Smell great if not quite so long lasting (but under £1!)
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    I assume they are still available- bought mine months & months ago- a regular line , not special purchase.

    Abbott & Broome, 'silver' moulded neck with words Abbott & Broome.
    Luxurious Hand Wash. 300ml. I think it was something like 85 pence?
     3 fragrances: Orange & Bergamot (which I really like,)  Pomegranate & Ginger, and was the other rhubarb &/or rose??

    Hope they still have it!

    Thanks, Katie.
    I'll have a look when I next go up.
    Orange & bergamot does sound nice.

    I forgot to say that I took my friend a bottle (O&B version) last Christmas and she had a bottle of the real McCoy  in use- they smelled the same  except I think the real thing was a tad stronger... and a good deal dearer! ('Though I think the word outlet was mentioned)

    I was in Aldi today and there are 4 variants of the handwash- but only one in stock! I think the price was 60+ pence

    In their 'specials'  for next week they have candles shown as 'Hotel Collection' with numbers: 1, 3? 22, 24 in : Pomegranate, Lime, Basil& Mandarin, Rose Noir & Sweet Almond

    Also others in: Pink Pepper, Rose, Amber & Leather, Honey, Plum & Tonka bean or Tuberose, Cashmere & Ylang Ylang- the last three are one fragrance but I can't see which make the other 2 combinations. there are reed diffusers in these too
    Of all these candles do 'we' (the royal one!) think any areduplicates of a famous brand, or two??

    I'm off for my fortnightly shop at Aldi tomorrow and they're on my list.

    These are the ones I mentioned here:

    One friend specially likes the blackberry and bay, another friend likes lime, basil & mandarin, another friend likes pomegranate.
    Diffusers are £3.49.

    I did buy the LBM edt from Aldi but find the smell a bit antiseptic.


    According to my Excel gift spreadsheet (I know, I'm anal :p ), I was buying the diffusers as far back as 2017, tipped off by my sister whose friend buys Jo Malone.
    LBM is a smell-alike (sister's friend approves) and I think pomegranate is. Not sure about the others.
    They did body cream at one stage too.
    If you're interested, keep an eye out for packs of 3 different candles. Nice for gifts, was £8.99 last year.
    My Aldi seem to have the diffusers for most of the year, although they do move them about.

    I would have some very disappointed friends and sister if there wasn't an Aldi diffuser in their Christmas bag. :)

    Hi Katie
    I've bought the orange & bergamot hand wash (I like citrus smells). They also had the rhubarb & rose in stock.

    Lots of diffusers in stock and also LBM hand and body wash at £2.49, didn't notice any other fragrance.
