    I believe its similar to Kenzo Flowers. As with most Aldo offers, its only available from Aldi during the period of the offer, or maybe occasionally for a little while afterwards
    Please forgive me if my comments seem abrupt or my questions have obvious answers, I have a mental health condition which affects my ability to see things as others might.
  • Dior addict,rose d'arabie, d &g (old version) ysl yvress champagne , all smell like the originals v pleased especially with the dg as this version is discontinues also have dg the one rose, bond 9 ny amber (gorgeous though dont know if its like the original) bond 9 i love ny, opium , samsara, kenzo le tigre and loads ive found a lot of new must have faves as at that price you can test buy some :D
  • I only discovered this thread on Friday and immediately had to place an order as i've been coveting V&R Flowerbomb for a while now.

    I ordered from the PP ebay shop Base.notez 5x3ml oils for £8 + £2 postage

    The Flowerbomb copy is excellent and i'm so, so pleased.
    Others were copies of Jo Malone Orange blossom - gorgeous.
    Armani Code - gorgeous, Lady Millions - lovely and Lola, unfortunately the wrong choice by me, as I prefer sweet floral and fruity to musky fragrances.

    I'm already drawing up a new list.

    What an absolutely brilliant find, and I get to test new perfumes at a fraction of the price. Thank you all so much.

    I made my first purchase on wednesday night with
    https://www.perfume-parlour.co.uk
    Must say I'm kinda impressed :j super fast shipping :j
    I ordered Thierry Muglar Alien (this is my favourite perfume of all times) and the copy is fantastic I have the original on my left wrist and the dupe on my right..... I cannot tell the difference.
    I also purchased Chanel Mademoiselle .... this isn't very good, I'm going to look for a better dupe as I only have about 10ml left of it in my bottle :eek:
    I also purchased Chanel Chance dupe ...... this is ok'ish but I'm not convinced and I'm sure nobody else would be :o after it settled (about 3 hours on a piece of tissue) it kinda resembled it a little bit but I'm sure theres better out there I'm going to purchase Milton Lloyd "Poker" and try that out ......
    But the Alien is fantastic for the price of these oils it is definately worth having a try of your favourites, I'm going to order the spray in the 25ml bottle of Alien its that good I will let you know how I get on with Milton Lloyd :p
    Don't look down on somebody unless you are helping them up.
    B]SPC No 336[/B].......... target £200 god loves a tryer :j

    Also forgot to mention I purchased the Lidl suddenly and OMG how amazing is that for £3.99 its the closest thing I have smelt to Chanel Mademoiselle EVER ..... I can spray to my hearts content .....
    I have to re-apply every few hours but its fab for the money, I even Popped a bottle in my car to use as air freshener Hahahhahahhahha
    I love it :)

  • After reading the rave reviews Of PP, I ordered Goochi Premier in roll on bottle but sadly not great! The underlying scent is faintly similar to Gucci Premiere, but seems wrapped up in this really soapy cheap smell, that ruins the very little hint of the perfume it's tying to copy. Shame cos was really excited bout these. Gonna try another & will report back ....

    Anyone know a smell alike of Prada Candy. I just love it but can't afford £50+ for it.

    The pp do a smell alike but its not very good at all. It doesn't smell anything like prada candy.
  • Thank you for this thread, I can now vouch for the Armani Diamonds-alike, smells exactly the same and lasts ages, unfortunately, my other favourite, Kenzo Flower is out of stock, so can't tell you if that matches up as well, but I'll keep popping back to see if I can get it!
    So, thank you, you've saved me a small fortune! :T
