We all need to make decisions that help us save money. Whether it is food or beauty products, we often are looking for cheaper alternatives that can offer similar quality. Perfume is one luxury item people love to splurge on – and why not? Who doesn’t appreciate smelling good? Now that designer fragrances come with a hefty price tag, more and more people are looking for perfume dupes that offer a similar scent without breaking the bank.
So what are the best perfume dupes for designer fragrances? When it comes to finding a suitable alternative for designer fragrances, you can look to drugstore brands or less expensive perfumes. The key is to look for notes or top notes in the original fragrance that you’d like to purchase and then find a dupe. It doesn’t have to be an exact replication of the designer fragrance, but the key is to look at the general main components of the fragrance that you would like.
One of the most popular designer fragrances is Chanel No5 which features jasmine, rose and ylang-ylang. A good dupe for this scent would be L’Eau de Chloe which has hints of white flowers, bergamot and lemon blossom. This scent carries a much lower price point than the original designer scent but gives off a similarly classy vibe with its powdery floral notes.
If you love Armani’s Code then the perfume dupe to go for could be Black Opium from YSL (Yves Saint Laurent). The notes are similar with mandarin, cedarwood and orange blossom as well as musk and coffee bean. It is a high-end fragrance but obviously not quite on par with Code from Armani in terms of price – though its composition is quite close if not identical. Both fragrances have a slightly sweet and exotic aroma but this dupe packs more of a punch.
For those looking for Calvin Klein’s Euphoria, give Davidoff Cool Water a try. Davidoff Cool Water has minty and woodsy top notes followed by lavender and green sea notes in the base of the scent which makes it smell quite similar to Euphoria by Calvin Klein. It has even been called “a masculine version of Calvin Klein’s scent” due to its strong and earthy smell, but at half the price of Euphoria.
Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange can be used as an alternative to Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori. Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange has some of the same citrusy top notes such as orange peel, blackcurrant and raspberry, but also added middle notes of rosemary, clove leaf and patchouli for depth, making it quite similar yet distinct from Gucci’s signature fragrance! Of course this option costs about 80% less than Gucci Bloom Nettare di Fiori so if looking for something close without spending too much money, this might be your best option!
Then there’s J’adore from Dior that can be replaced with Giorgio Armani Si. Armani Si has lots of patchouli and soft florals like rose and freesia – a longer list of intricate scents blended together than J’adore by Dior! These two perfumes are actually quite close and provide superior quality at an affordable price – plus they smell amazing when layered together!
