    Great 'cheap smell-a-like perfumes hunt' Hunt

    Check out the list below of dirt-cheap dead ringers for posh perfumes sniffed out by MoneySavers, and add your own by hitting reply.

    Back to the original post ...

    I am doing my sister a hamper for Xmas and was going to add a small bottle of her fav perfume, D&G Light Blue. I stopped off in M&S for the sale and sniffed out the perfume. I was shocked to come across Azure Breeze which smells exactly the same as Light Blue and is £12 for 100ml! I also brought myself Next Diamonds which smells like Miss Dior Cherie.

    So far, I have sniffed out the following:

    Next Just Pink - Ralph Lauren Romance
    Next Diamonds - Miss Dior Cherie
    Next Define - Armani She
    M&S True Red - Hugo Boss Deep Red
    M&S Azure Breeze - D&G Light Blue
    M&S Isis - L'eau de Issey
    Zara Collection - Chanel Chance

    Anyone have any others they can add? x

    Suitable for Vegans and Cruelty Free?
    Hi guys,

    I've found this website Perfume Parlour through this forum and I'm looking after a smell alike D&G Red that will be suitable for vegans and cruelty free.

    I know all M&S perfumes are cruelty free and SFV but unfortunately they don't do any that is a smell alike D&G Red for females.

    I got very excited to see that Perfume Parlour sells D&G Red for females alike and the reviews on it fill me in hope but now I just need to confirm if their perfumes are suitable for vegans before I will place any order.

    Does anyone have a clue? I have sent them an email inquiring but haven't got a reply back yet so came here to ask as I'm dieing of anxiety hehe.

    Thank you

    Liana

    I think it's so horrible it's put me right off any cheapies, funny how we all smell things differently. What I would say is it has great staying power, couldn't get rid of it all day, Chanel on the other hand has vanished within a couple of hours.

    Alerted to this site through Latest Free Stuff on Facebook earlier today. They seem to do EDPs (for men) and Parfum (for women) concentrations - sent off for the scented pages samples earlier.

    Anyone had any experience of them, and do they do dupes? https://www.sangado.com/

    "Our perfumes have 12 hour-longevity" https://www.sangado.com/content/4-about-us

    I try to buy pure parfum whenever I have the option!

    The only (short) Forum mention I can see so far is from Fragrantica http://www.fragrantica.com/board/viewtopic.php?id=130847

    La vie est belle- HELP!!
    I have desperately fallen in love with the la vie est belle perfume by Lancôme, I know there are multiple scents by Lancôme called la vie est belle but I only like one of them. I haven't quite worked out which one it is out of the three of them but I know it definitely isn't the tall one, so it's one of the shorter ones, are there any smell alikes for this perfume? As I know people who have a very similar scent but it definitely isn't the Lancôme brand. Is there a cheaper smell alike than the actual la vie est belle? Thank you

    http://www.basenotes.net/ (at least I know I've mentioned it a few times!) Not bought anything from any of the sites but they do help me understand the notes in certain perfumes and if they are with sampling if I am a store selling them.

    I noticed Lidl have extended their range of EDP for women and EDT for men. Anyone know what any of the scents are similar to?

    Cheap Perfumes
    Hello Everyone!!
    It doesn't matter whether you are a man or women , all want the fragrance coming out from the body. And it's natural human behavior .
    I used so many air perfumes but mostly all of them were very costly and even some perfumes have very irritating smells which caused headache. I wanted perfumes which are cheap but have good natural fragrance also.
    So, for this I asked my friend and he suggested me the Nyassa's Air Perfume. Should I use this?
    I am a bit confused. Please help me.

    Thanks.
