Just that really, is it any good? Very intrigued but also a bit put off by some of the typos on the site, just worried in case the perfumes are a bit headache inducing or it is a scam. I would love to know if any of you beautiful people have bought from there and if so what would you recommend. Has anyone bought any of the Arabic sounding oils (the oud based ones I suppose)? Thanks in advance x

I have bought a few. They don't, frankly, smell exactly like the things they are supposed to, but actually they are equally nice - they don't smell cheap to me (though I am not as experienced as some people on here).

Thank you Countess I think I'm being a bit precious anyway considering how little they cost - I'm definitely going to try a few of them.

I have used them because they sell rollerball perfumes which I struggle to find elsewhere. I've tried the flower bomb one and will try lime basil and mandarin next. The names of the perfumes make me chuckle though. You could always buy a tiny rollerball just to test before splashing out. I think they're about £2.

The typos are on purposegrin

I've used them for a few years now and the ones I have bought ( about 20 or so) all smell identical to the real ones. I am very fickle with perfumes so hate committing to a big bottle.

What's your favourite Dame ?

Jo Malone ones and the D and G Light Blue the one I get lots of compliments on is Dov which smells just like Dove soap grin

Tom Ford ones are nice too.

I've bought a few of them and they've always been nice. I find them handy to carry around with me smile

They last ages too ime.

I use it all the time. Had a few duffers but had some great ones too, especially the Tom Ford ones.

They are fabulous by and large.

I have about 30. Most are very long-lasting and dead ringers for the real thing. The only ones I have tried which were not, were generally sweeter than the real article. Some of them are nicer than more recent formulations- for example Rive Gauche PP is much nicer than the modern RG because it is closer to the original.

Chanel 19 is nothing like, nor is Escape. Offhand they are the only two that I thought wtf?

Haven't tried any of the oudy-arabic ones.

I have some of the oud ones. The armani prevae oud perfumes are lovely.

Thank you all for commenting! Just about to order! Xxx

Go for it! I use PP and they're great. I never buy branded perfume anyway so don't know how close the resemblance is, but they smell lovely and last ages.

I've had some that are nothing like the originals but their Chanel no5 smells almost identical on me so I'm happy with that (Allure not so much but it's a nice scent independently while not being identical to Chanel).

Does anyone know if they do a copy of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and if yes what it is called on their website?

IsadoraQuagmire Fri 04-Nov-16 14:27:55

I've used them before. I particularly liked the one that smells like Kenzo Flower.

VintagePerfumista Fri 04-Nov-16 14:35:19

Koko Madam I think.

LizardBreath Fri 04-Nov-16 14:55:44

I have used them in the past, I generally use them as my day / work perfumes.

Ones that I think are good:
Dkny be delicisous
Gucci guilty
Burberry Brit

Can't remember the other off top of head! I prefer the sprays to the oils though

Beketaten Fri 04-Nov-16 22:37:05

Yes, I've got a few. The only one I don't rate is an EDP I tried in their version of Chance, all the oils I've used have been very good and great for travel.

Truckingalong Fri 11-Nov-16 08:47:30

I've had loads from here and always rated them but I've just had 6 different sprays and they're all awful and nothing like the originals. Really disappointed.
