SAVING money has never smelled so good.
Perfume dupes cost a fraction of designer fragrances, but with scents just as sweet. Here’s how to swap and keep more of your cash.
SUPER DEALS: Head to Superdrug and sniff out its Artiscent Atelier range, which costs £11.99 for a 50ml bottle. Each is similar to a designer version, according to a viral TikTok video made by employees.
The Spring Fleur is a dupe of Chloe’s £75 Fleur de Parfum. And Patchouli Passion is comparable with Lancome’s La Vie Est Belle, but without the £70 price tag. Try swapping Atelier’s Lily Amour for Chanel’s £77 Chance, and Exotic Musk for Tom Ford’s £141 Santal Blush.
SAVE POUNDS: Poundland has a range of perfumes that cost £1 for 100ml, yet many of the scents can pass as more expensive high-end fragrances.
Pocket a saving of more than £50 by spritzing the store’s Fleur Bloom instead of Viktor & Rolf’s Spicebomb. Poundland’s Lily Petals smells like Marc Jacobs’ £64 Daisy perfume. And Black Dusk is a dupe of Yves Saint Laurent’s, Black Opium, £80 for 90ml.
TOP MARKS: Marks and Spencer has won fans for fragrances that are reminiscent of costlier alternatives.
The Seasalt & Neroli eau de toilette is £6 for 30ml. Try it if you like Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino or Jo Malone’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt.
And M&S’s Provenance fragrances cost £15 for 100ml. This makes the range a far more affordable option than Armani’s Prive collection, which comes with a price tag of £138 for 100ml.
Switch the M&S Provenance Amongst The Orange Groves for Armani Prive’s Orangerie Venise, or M&S’s Santorini Days for Prive’s Gardenia Antigua.
SMELLS LIKE SAVINGS: The Essence Vault is an website offering fragrances inspired by famous high street brands at a fraction of the cost.
Bestsellers include 82, which costs £14.95 for 30ml and is similar to Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium. And 782, £14.95 for 30ml, is similar to Issey Miyake perfume. The site also has 20 per cent off, using the discount code TEV20.
