I had a spray and it smells pretty good to me.

Dh says he likes it

Reviews are good

It is very cheap

The snob in me thinks it can't be that good because it's so cheap.

What do you think?

CrispyHedgeHog Thu 20-Mar-14 22:07:48

I haven't smelt it but surely perfume is perfume? and with the expensive ones you're just paying for the brand?

If you like it.. wear it

Technical Thu 20-Mar-14 22:09:58

Well yes, but that means there are an awful lot of people prepared to pay £50+ just for the brand

NigellasDealer Thu 20-Mar-14 22:11:57

it is nice and the bottle looks v stylish.
I bought some for me but the daughter nicked it.
it was called 'suddenly' I think.

How cheap is it? I've not forgotten the rash I once got from a cheap bottle of Exclamation.

It smells lovely, but it doesn't last very long. I find I have to have a few more squirts after 4 hours or so, but at that price it doesn't matter.

Technical Thu 20-Mar-14 22:19:39

It's either 32.99 or £3.99 and has been rated ahead of Channel in magazine trials

Technical Thu 20-Mar-14 22:19:59

£2.99 or £3.99

Suddenly Madame Glamour. I have it. It smells lovely. Doesn't last all day but at £4 a bottle I keep a spare in work to re-spritz after lunch. It smells very much like Chanel on me, it smells a bit like Soap and Glory on one of my friends.

WeeSleekit Thu 20-Mar-14 22:21:29

Yes it's how long it lasts that is the difference. I barely got half an hour from it. Although I seem to neutralise most perfume in record time. I have some Issey Miyake and it does last infinitely longer than my cheaper stuff.

Xfirefly Thu 20-Mar-14 22:21:35

I got a wiff of MIls perfume other day and asked what it was because it was nice and she said Lidls...I was like hmm but it really does smell lovely IMO

Needadvice5 Thu 20-Mar-14 22:21:50

I love my expensive perfume but have recently started buying the Lidl one for work and it's really nice but the smell doesn't last long!

Technical Thu 20-Mar-14 22:22:55

Does any perfume last all day?

justaweeone Thu 20-Mar-14 22:33:48

Their was also Suddenly diamonds in store./valentines I think
Not sure of what the dupe was but even though not my sort of smell,I really liked it

CointreauVersial Thu 20-Mar-14 23:47:53

Suddenly Diamonds is similar to Boss Orange, I think.

TheBeautifulVisit Fri 21-Mar-14 10:40:45

Jo Malone lasts all day.

HyvaPaiva Fri 21-Mar-14 10:43:57

I've used this, it was pleasant and quite reminiscent of Coco Mademoiselle but it has the lightness and longevity of a body spray not an EDP so I'm not a huge fan.

As for perfumes not lasting all day, Flowerbomb EDP, Fracas EDP, and Jean Paul Gaultier Classique EDT are some that last all day on me.

Pasithea Fri 21-Mar-14 10:46:24

Chanel no 5. There is no other perfume.

ShatnersBassoon Fri 21-Mar-14 10:47:56

It's OK, a bit like Avon perfumes ie it doesn't last long and smells a bit 'thin' and old-fashioned.

MelanieCheeks Fri 21-Mar-14 13:26:38

It's one of the few perfumes that my DH actually likes! He has a very sensitive nose...

Ilovecoodomol Fri 21-Mar-14 14:41:47

What is the name of the Lidl one? I'm perfume mad, I have far too many bottles and tend to buy brand names but I'm not a snob and have a few decent replicas in my collection.... I'm for Lidl tonight so will try it. I certainly won't complain about it not lasting at that price, I have paid a fortune for some designer brands that don't bloody last either, Jo Malone and some of the Calvin Kleins spring to mind.

MelanieCheeks Fri 21-Mar-14 14:43:40

Suddenly Madame Glamour is the one that smells like Mademoiselle.

NigellasDealer Fri 21-Mar-14 14:57:09

Suddenley diamonds is the one they were pushing for valentines i think, and has a rectangular bottle and lid.

barleysugar Fri 21-Mar-14 15:03:52

What does the Diamonds one smell like though? I bought a bottle for my mum but couldn't resist testing it and kept it for myself! It's lovely, and lasts all P day on me, but I can't place what it smells like!

NigellasDealer Fri 21-Mar-14 15:06:05

hmm not sure it is certainly quite nice - is it imitation coco chanel? <runs upstairs to squirt some on>
