M&S True Red and Hugo Boss Deep Red...
M&S Isis woman and Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey...
|M&S Isis EDT|
|Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey EDP|
Again, similar bottles and very similar scents- fresh, clean and lightly floral.
M&S Butterfly and DKNY Be Delicious...
|M&S Butterfly EDT|
|Marc Jacobs Daisy EDP|
|DKNY Be Delicious EDP|
It doesn't take a genius to work out the=at Butterfly's bottle is super-similar to Daisy, but as much as the scents are similar, Butterfly has a lot of fruity notes which make it rather similar to Be Delicious too- either way this is another lovely scent- fruity/citrusy and light.
There a a few more that others have noticed, but I haven't scent tested them myself, including:
M&S Sensuale/ Chanel Allure
And of course Lidl's Suddenly/ Chanel Coco Mademoiselle
Now I don't know if any of these perfumes are absolute dupes- but they do all smell lovely and pretty similar to much more expensive perfumes, so if you're stuck for ideas for pressies M&S perfumes are well worth a sniff.
The perfumes are available from (larger) M&S stores- and on their website, and there is a great range of sizes- starting with tiny 10ml purse sprays at £3.50, and 100ml bottles, and gift sets for £15- so they are already rather budget friendly... AND the whole range is buy one get one half off! I rather like the idea of getting a selection of purse sized sprays as a gift, like a selection box of perfume :)
Do you know of any cheaper perfume alternatives? Let me know!
p.s. I've added a twitter button!- it took me aaages to work out how to do it this morning, brain was not in gear....
