So regarding Perfume Parlour, I came here to make a review from what I bought, since I found the site here once I was searching at the internet for perfume dupes.
There are 3 things considered.
1. Similarity of the original: yes, in this one PP can score 90% since some of the oils are identical to the real thing (Poeme, Womanity, 1881 are among my favorite).
2. Longevity: In this one also PP scores well. You can smell this oils for hours.
3. Sillage-Projection (how much others can smell your perfume): this is the biggest minus of PP and the reason that I won't order again. I am on the type of persons who like others to be able to smell their perfumes. PP's oils don't have any sillage at all. I had the suspicion since noone was complimeting me for my perfume, but then I tested it. I gave some on my friend to put. She put a generous ammount but only after I went next to her neck I could smell it. Then, I have a friend who really despises any kind of scent and perfume. I put like 1/3 of this little bottle and I went and asked him: how do I smell? he said: fine. Do I smell of something? He tried to smell, but he said no!!
For me this is a real downside, so I decided to go for Milton Lloyd's dupes. The majority of them are very spot on with a good longeity and projection.
If you don't mind about the sillage and projection, then PP is a good choice. Their service is also very good.
PS: I used the oils in a lot of ways, after shower, using body lotion but still nothing. I am the only one who can smell them.

I agree with 100% here. I have very similar story. The sillage is terrible. I too have gone to Milton Lloyd.
How can this Forumite maximise their smart speaker?
