Moved from 'Other subjects'.
I was curious which budget scents Mumsnetters use. I like Body Shop White Musk, it's one of the few that don't give me a headache. What do you use for everyday use that costs under £10?

I have the lidl one that smells like Chanel for £3.99.

Could you tell me what it's called pls? (And which Chanel one?!!)

I have the Lidl Simply Diamonds. Lovely and only £3.99 so perfect for work.

fancy nights by jessica simpson is dirt cheap and actually really really nice. definitely a heavy, strong night time perfume though

M and S Autograph Pink.

I have the body spray and use it to squoosh on my clothes when I haven't washed them like a teenager using Impulse grin

You can't beat 4711 for a gorgeous, fresh (and cheap) scent. The bonus is it smells a LOT like Neroli Portofino which I love.

Zara scents all smell like designer ones

Have you looked on Perfume Parlour? Very good dupes that are uber cheap. I've got a Tom ford, jo Malone and a Gucci.
But I get compliments galore for lidl Madame glamour.

Next perfumes are bloody marvellous. My favourite is paradise.
Body shop have some corkers, rose musk is really lovely.

M&S ISIS is a good dupe for Issiye Miyake.

Next Bergamot & Rich Amber

Lidl Madame Glamour is a dead ringer for Coco Chanelle Mademoiselle (just doesn't last as long)

MitzyLeFrouf Sun 17-May-15 04:00:55

I continue to adore Sarah Jessica's Parker's Lovely. It's been at least a decade since we started this clandestine relationship. I just can't give her up!

Britney Spears midnight fantasy! I always get compliments when I wear it, most of her scents are quite nice actually and much cheaper than other perfumes!

StampyShortnose Sun 17-May-15 08:01:24

Perfume parlour version of Black Orchid is great.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 17-May-15 09:29:56

I get oils from Perfume Parlour , fantastic companysmile

itsnothingoriginal Sun 17-May-15 10:17:21

I love BS White Musk libertine!

Also have lots of the small M&S perfumes - 'New York' is a particularly nice musky vanilla. The Bohemia one I like too.

Not so keen on the Lidl Madame Glamour one personally but it is a real bargain as are the Britney Spears perfumes - very sweet though!

4711, it's classic.
Yardleys. It reminds me of the penhaligon ones.

I've recently given up buying expensive perfumes as my tastes change so quickly it often ends up being a huge waste.

ALL the Next fragrances are great, Lidl, New Look Pure something (it's the purple one and smells exactly like flowerbomb), Soap and Glory original silver bottle is a lovely clean smell, body shop white musk is gorgeous but takes me back to my teenage years, Moroccan Rose was amazing but seems to be discontinued.

Haven't tried but have heard very good things about Zara perfumes!

Tweezertastic Sun 17-May-15 13:53:56

Rosie perfume and some perfume (butterflies on the lid) from marks

SooBee61 Sun 17-May-15 14:23:09

Thanks to all for the suggestions. Wish I was near a Lidl! Shall check out Next though.

After trying loads of expensive perfumes for my wedding I chose Moroccan Rose from the Body Shop. Lush. It's nearly our anniversary and I might have to go and buy some to relive the day!

Greengardenpixie Sun 17-May-15 16:27:39

Next Bergamot & Rich Amber
This is beautiful scent.

Cheesymonster Sun 17-May-15 17:15:30

The one I get most compliments on is Britney Circus Fantasy, £5 from B&M.
