    Cheap Smell-alikes - Cheaper alternatives to Expensive Perfumes

    Cheap Smell-alikes - Cheaper alternatives to Expensive Perfumes 20th Apr 08 at 4:19 AM
    Hi, I have been searching for a cheap smell-alike to Dolce Vita EDT perfume. It costs around 30 for 50ml and the smell doesn't even linger for that long (sadly there's no EDP version to save re-applying).

    Does anyone know of a Dolce Vita Smell-alike? or of any other smell-alikes?
    Could you list them in this thread?

    Thank you xx

    Yes this Dolce Vita is a waste of money, i think you can use Paco Rabanne perfume, It smells good and not very expensive

    KL/ Estee Super (or just Estee)
    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?

    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.
