Perfume dupes are a great way to revolutionise your fragrance-buying habits.
These fragrance dupes smell exactly like the real thing but often come at more than half the cost - without any comprises on the scent.
But finding the perfect perfume dupe, where the difference between the cheap and expensive perfume (opens in new tab) one isn't obvious, can be difficult. We've done some digging and found the very best fragrance dupes from high street favourites like Zara and Aldi, which smell just like the designer brands, including the best perfumes of all time.
27 perfume dupes that smell like designer scents
There are cheap perfume dupes on sale for the likes of Chanel, Jo Malone, Chloé, Dior, Marc Jacobs and more for a reason. You will not believe how similar these dupes can be, considering they smell very similar and cost much less.
1. Marc Jacobs Daisy
Avon Eve Truth, £14
Marc Jacobs' Daisy fragrance has become a modern icon, rivalling the likes of Chanel and Jo Malone favourites. But now beauty service Avon has come out with their own fragrance dupe and it smells exactly like it - for a quarter of the price.
Mixed by renowned French perfumer Laurent Le Guernec, who actually worked with Marc Jacobs to create their scent Splash Rain, the fragrance features notes of amber, gardenia, peony, and cedarwood for deep but feminine scent.
2. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
Everybody loves a bit of Chanel and one of the brand's most iconic fragrances has to be the Coco Mademoiselle.
With its blend of citrusy notes that open up into sweet florals and deep musks the spritz has become a cult classic.
And now bargain supermarket Lidl is selling a bottle that customers claim smells exactly the same as the French perfume house's version - Lidl is full of brilliant perfume dupes.
Suddenly Madame Glamour uses a number of the same notes including, patchouli, tonka bean, vetiver, rose ylang-ylang and a number of citrusses to give the same feminine aroma as the Chanel favourite.
3. Hugo Boss Red Red
So much cheaper but just as orangey and earthy - even the name sounds the same!
These spicy scents are very much night-time perfumes - the slimmer M&S bottle is the ideal size for popping in your handbag.
4. Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess
This gorgeous summer scent will have you feeling as if you're on the beach, even if you only make it to the back garden. Expect sweet notes of orange, while coconut and tiare flowers add accords of sensuality and vanilla and musk create a heady finish.
5. Georgio Armani Si
The Essence Vault has some incredible cheap perfume dupes but this is one of our favourites. With top notes of cassis, middle notes of rose and base notes of vanilla and patcholi, it's very similar to the scent of Giorgio Armani's famous Sì perfume.
It's just under £25 for 100ml, so a huge saving compared to the £81 price tag on the original perfume.
6. Chanel No 5
Buy the original: Chanel No5 50ml - JOHN LEWIS | £86 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupes: Lacura 5th Element Eau De Toilette (Available in store)
As cheap perfumes go, this one is a winner.
Emulating the iconic perfume that sits on the dressing tables of women the world over, Aldi's newest fragrance is made up of notes of rose and jasmine like its inspiration, to give it the classic womanly scent that is instantly recognisable.
7. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
Buy the original: Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium - BOOTS | £80 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Bodycare Black Addiction, £2.99 (Available in store)
In the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, one user noted how this £2.99 perfume from Bodycare, a store found online and in various locations in the North East, the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber, the West and East Midlands, Scotland, Wales and the South West, smells just like YSL's designer scent, Black Opium - sold for almost 30x the price!
The packaging looks similar too, so you'll be able to fool just about anyone...
8. Chloe Eau de Toilette
The packaging of these two light, feminine scents is very different, but inside the bottle, the smell is remarkably similar - clean, floral, and very wearable.
We get our Milton Lloyd perfumes from their website, but you should look out for them in local discount stores too.
9. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne
If you're a fan of Jo Malone fragrances but not of their steep prices and are looking for cheap perfumes instead, you might want to stop by Aldi and get yourself one of their new Luxury Eau De Toilette.
They launched three scents including Lime, Basil & Madarian and Freesia & Pear, but it's the Pomegranate that's said to be inspired by Jo Malone’s Pomegrante Noir Cologne.
Costing less than £6, we think these fragrance dupes are worth a try...
10. Roses de Chloe
Buy the original: Roses de Chloé 100ml - JOHN LEWS | £52 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Poundland Sensuous Rose, £1 (Available in store)
It seems like everything's coming up roses as there's another winning fragrance from Poundland.
This time it's a take on Chloé's Parisian gardens-infused perfume, Roses de Chloé. Sensuous Rose mirrors the luxury scent's notes of (you've guessed it...) roses, with hints of magnolia and white musk.
11. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
Buy the original: Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium - BOOTS | £80 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Poundland Black Dust, £1 (Available in-store) Another brilliant perfume dupes option inspired by designer YSL's rock'n'roll perfume, Black Dust by Poundland has heavy notes of coffee, pink pepper, orange blossom and cedar.
Just like the real thing right down to the packaging but at only £1, it's a tiny fraction of the price.
12. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
Buy the original: Chanel Coco Mademoiselle 50ml - BOOTS | £86 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Lacura Feminine Eau De Toilette, £6.99 (Available in-store)
If you were looking for fragrance dupes to rival Chanel's classic scents, this is another one that you're going to want to snap up.
Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle is a feminine classic, bought by those who want an expensive womanly scent without the strong aroma of the cult Chanel No5. With a woody and fruity fragrance, Aldi's humble offering comes with the same expensive smell but without the hefty price tag. Win win!
13. Lancome La Vie Est Belle
Buy the original: Lancome La Vie Est Belle, 100ml - BOOTS | £90 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Lidl Aura en Rose, £4.99 (Available in store)
This bargain fragrance from the German supermarket has been compared to Lancome's £89 La Vie Est Belle! When you can buy nearly 18 bottles of Lidl's fragrance for the same price, you'd be silly not to try it!
14. D&G Light Blue
Buy the original: D&G Light Blue 100ml - ALLBEAUTY | £45 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Marks and Spencer Azure Breeze, £16 (Available in store)
Erm, we're not just seeing double, we're smelling double too, these fruity, cedar-rich scents are virtually indistinguishable -for big perfume dupes fans this is a classic.
If you loved Light Blue in the 90s, it's totally worth reinvesting in a bottle of the M&S edition.
15. Paco Rabanne Lady Million
These two fragrances have base notes of patchouli, honey and amber. It's a warming scent that surrounds you, with fresh top notes of orange blossom, Arabian jasmine, raspberry and neroli also present. The original fragrance is Paco Rabanne's Lady Million, famous for its gold diamond bottle.
While this dupe comes in much simpler packaging, it smells very similar for less than £25 for 100ml.
16. Paco Rabanne Lady Million
This KDJ perfume is inspired by Lady Million. It contains notes of neroli, Amalfi lemon, raspberry, along with African orange flower, jasmine and gardenia. Bottom notes include white honey, amber and patchouli.
17. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne
Smells like: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir 50ml - JOHN LEWIS | £72 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Primark Pomegranate & Black Tea, £8 (Available in-store)
Primark might not have been your first thought when you considered looking for fragrance dupes, but shoppers swear that this £8 bottle bears a striking resemblance to Jo Malone's rich, fruity fragrance.
At a tenth of the price for the same amount, it's certainly worth a go...
Available in store.
18. Ralph Lauren Romance
Both these scents have a rich, rosy base that suits almost every woman - and from a distance, you couldn't tell the packaging apart either...
19. Esteee Lauder Sensuous
These pretty, powdery perfumes have a comparable luxurious, musky base - the bottles are equally lovely and we had a hard time telling the scents apart too.
We could, however, see a definitely difference in the price...
20. Dior J'adore
Buy the original: Dior J'adore 50ml - BOOTS | £75 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: Zara Rose 100ml - ZARA | £12.99 (opens in new tab)
Okay, so the Zara product won't look quite as impressive on your dressing table, but on the skin, it really is almost the same thing, for a fraction of the price.
21. Thierry Mugler Alien
Thierry Mugler might have the edge design-wise, but we can't believe the Milton Lloyd version costs less than a fiver.
It smells pretty much identical and you'll get just as many compliments when you're wearing it!
22. Yves Saint Laurent Cinema
These gorgeous gold perfumes are just as Oscar-worthy as each other, and once you've sprayed them on, you'll have trouble telling them apart. One of the most uncanny perfume dupes out there!
Amber-led and full of blossom, either will smell great on your skin - it's just that one costs twice as much as the other.
The choice is yours...
23. Jo Malone Mandarin Lime & Basil
Buy the original: Jo Malone Lime, Basil & Mandarin 50ml - JOHN LEWIS | £72 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: B&M Arome Mandarin, Lime & Basil, £4.99. Available in store.
Jo Malone's signature scent will set you back nearly £100 but now high street bargain store B&M have released their own copycat fragrance dupes products.
This fresh, zingy fragrance is perfect to wear for everyday and at that price you can use as much as you want of this fabulous perfume dupe without the worry of having to replace an expensive bottle.
24. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Cologne
Smells like: Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir 50ml - JOHN LEWIS | £72 (opens in new tab) Buy the dupe: B&M Arome Oriental Pomegranate, £4.99. Available in store.
Another Jo Malone inspired fragrance from the B&M Arome collection is the Oriental Pomegranate.
This 100ml bottle will leave you smelling of dark fruits like raspberries and plum with a hint of spice.
This scent is perfect to wear for an evening out.
25 -27 Superdrug's Layering Lab Body Mist Sprays
Smells like:Paco Rabanne Olympéa, £80,Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium, £92 andMugler Alien, £91
Superdrug shoppers have been raving about the brand's Layering Lab body mist range on Twitter and many have compared them to some big fragrance brands. The Blossom body spray has notes of fresh rose and jasmine and has been likened to the popular Thierry Mugler fragrance, Alien.
The Exotic body mist has been compared toYves Saint Laurent Black Opium and the Paradise scent is said to smell just likePaco Rabanne's Olympéa. Each body mist is 100ml and costs just £3.49, so not only are the bottles much bigger than the perfumes, they are a lot cheaper too!

1. Marc Jacobs Daisy. Marc Jacobs' Daisy fragrance has become a modern icon, rivalling the likes of Chanel and Jo Malone favourites. But now beauty service Avon has come out with their own fragrance dupe and it smells exactly like it - for a quarter of the price.
Zara Rose EDP and Dior J'Adore
Both elegant and feminine fragrances, Zara's Rose is said to smell rather similar to Dior's J'Adore.
Stunningly Venice. If you ask me, this one could easily be a Jo Malone London or Jo Loves fragrance. It's sweet with notes of nose-tickling red berries but shrouds you in a lightweight warmth thanks to neroli and myrhh.
Are they the same quality & smell? Yes, they are completely the same and of the same concentrate. Often a fragrance will only mature on your skin after 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
Here's the affordable Daisy Dupe: Zara Orchid. I'm a hardcore fan of the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh perfume, I have been repurchasing it for so many years now and no perfume has ever compared to it. Daisy Eau so Fresh is a naturally sweet floral scent that smells light and refreshing on the skin.

We invited expert perfumer Lawrence Roullier White to blind-test ten smell-a-like pairs, spritzed onto identical tester strips, to give his verdicts...
Perfumers have been working hard to produce cheap scents, some of which appear uncannily similar in look and smell to some of the high-end designer perfumes — at a fraction of the price.. So while nSpa (available at ASDA from £8) doesn’t say its Orient fragrance is the nasal doppelganger for Armani Code (£33.60), its website acknowledges its scents are, ahem: ‘Inspired by fragrance spectrums used by the world’s leading perfumers.’. nSpa Orient (£8, 50ml): This fragrance has citrus notes of orange and orange flower — but not much else.. Autograph Isis by M&S (£16, 100ml): Quite similar to its paired fragrance when you first smell it.. Those aquatic notes are there but I’m smelling the alcohol in this much more and once the alcohol has disappeared, I’m not left with much.. Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana (left) has notes of apple, lime and lemon and smells very Italian.. Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana (£48.50, 50ml): This has notes of apple, lime and lemon and smells very Italian.. Autograph New York by M&S (right) has a powdery, rose smell but it doesn't smell like real rose.. Autograph New York by M&S (£18, 100ml): A powdery, rose smell but it doesn’t smell like real rose.. While Next London is a very respectable budget fragrance it doesn’t smell to me like any of the classics.
Ever since the days of PE lessons at school, spraying cans of Impulse like they were going out of fashion in the changing rooms, (and trying not to give your weak-lunged classmates an asthma attack) we’ve been pretty obsessed with perfume. When it comes to smelling good, we all certainly have our favourites, but what […]
We’ve found replicas of Chanel, Viktor & Rolf, Marc Jacobs and even Jo Malone – and they’re all under £20.. Good ol’ Primark has come through with the good stuff once again, its dupe of the iconic Lady Million fragrance by Paco Rabanne is almost identical.. Flowerbomb has got to be one of the most popular fragrances of all time, so we were pretty pleased with ourselves when we found a dupe for just £12.99.. Smelling like Chanel without the Chanel price tag, nobody has to know the supplier…. The classic fresh, floral an fruity scent takes us straight to the Mediterranean with notes of rose, apple, musk and jasmine which are also found in Zara’s Forget Me Not.. An all-time summer scent, Daisy by Marc Jacobs, is the perfect youthful, feminine fragrance; notes of strawberry, grapefruit, violet, gardenia and musk make up the scent, but our favourite bit is the highly collectable bottle.. Black Opium has notes of black coffee, vanilla, citrus and white musk and the Superdrug version smells almost exactly the same – the only downside is that Superdrug’s version is a body mist, therefore it won’t last as long on the skin, but for under £4 you can afford to buy them two at a time.. Pomegranate and Black Tea, Primark £8 – Available in-store. Intense notes of rose, jasmine and amber make up the signature woody-floral scent of Alien, for a budget-friendly version, be sure to check out Blossom body mist from Superdrug.. Chanel definitely makes some of the most popular perfumes round, its fragrance Allure has a fresh, oriental scent with notes of mandarin rose, and vanilla.. The Next dupe of the perfume, Just Pink, cost just £8 and has many similar notes including fresh florals, patchouli and musk – it also has hints of mandarin oil making it slightly fruitier than the Ralph Lauren one.. Zara really is the champion of designer fragrance dupes; its Black Amber fragrance is a great dupe for Dolce & Gabbana The One.

Perfume isn’t just the way you smell; it’s a memory in the making.. That’s why guys go gaga for the perfumes their exes wore and why your signature perfume matters oh so much.. If you are the perfume wearer who hates perfume, then this is the best choice for you.. Finding a fragrance that really, truly smells fresh is hard.. When you spray this on, you can smell melon, lilies, and the nice scent of fresh summer rain.. Demeter is known as the company that got its start from making uniquely realistic fragrances that smell just like everyday things.. That’s what makes this one of the best fresh fragrances for women (or men) who dig that smell and the memories it brings back.. If you love heady, spicy and exotic scents, you’ll love Byredo’s work with this perfume.. The problem with many rose-oriented perfumes is that they tend to smell like “granny perfumes,” and the brand Juliette Has A Gun has been working to end that once and for all.. This sweet but floral fragrance is balmy, warm, and at the same time, a perfect memory of times spent at summer camp years ago.. Those who love a spicy, cinnamon-like floral scent with honey undertones will adore Aphrodite’s Slipper.. Though this company definitely has a lot of different perfumes that are of note, the best spicy perfume they’ve ever made would have to be Queens.. We can’t talk about spicy fragrances for women without including one of the most popular perfumes to ever be sold in this category.. Pink pepper, saffron, leather and rose are some of the notes you'll smell — but no matter how many times you take a whiff, you won't be able to avoid the distinct smell of jazz-era mystery in every sniff.
