  • Does anyone know of a smell-alike for the discontinued KL and Estee Super. Or is anyone aware of an Estee smell-alike. I especially miss KL and cannot afford the Ebay prices. It really was sublime. I have been through the posts and cannot believe no one else misses it as well. Anybody?

    Perfume Parlour do EL dupes. They all have reviews so you can check how close they are.
  • Thank you for the suggestion. No KL but Estee is there.
  • I too have used perfume-parlour and had no trouble. I had ordered two and both smelt just like the named brand! I have sensitive skin and no reactions.

    Hi, I don't know if anyone can help.

    My favourite perfume of all time was Deci Dela by Nina Ricci, which was discontinued several years ago.

    I was very upset, as I am funny with perfumes and it had taken me a long time to find one I really liked. Plus everyone commented on how lovely it was.

    Anyway, I have been trying to find a firm which makes duplicates of discontinued perfumes.

    I tried one, Scentmatchers, in the States, but although their blurb said it could make perfumes almost the same as the original, it was absolutely nothing like the original, nowhere close, so I was very disappointed.

    Can anyone help? Even after several years, I'm not giving up hope!

    I was looking for a dupe for Chloe. I have a bottle and some lotion but wanted something cheap for inbetweens.
    I bought Hawai and it was truly awful.
    I bought Kloe by Kloe from perfume parlour and it's rreally really similar the only difference is how far it wafts and it doesn't make me sneeze.
  • Have you tried Perfume24 ? Just google their website. They sell quality smell a-likes I purchased few and they really DO smell good and last long as well.

    No 4 Natalie: Although it essentially turned into Guerlinade, the designer fragrance this most smells like is without a doubt La Vie Est Belle by Lancome, It also has a very, very similar dry down to La Petite Robe Noire (2012 relaunch version) by Guerlain. Other similar fragrances in this family include La Nuit Tresor by Lancome, Lolita Lempicka L’Eau en Blanc, and Armani Si.
    No 8 Valerie
    No 12 Emile: smells most like Dolce&Gabbana Rose the One (now discontinued). It’s also a bit like Coco Mademoiselle and DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Intense (also discontinued) and has strong similarities with some of the flankers to Burberry Body, Stella McCartney Stella and Paul Smith Rose.
    In practice, though, on my skin No12 Emilie smells very much like Narciso Rodriguez For Her eau de parfum
