Anyone tried Lidl Suddenly Woman 1 perfume?

It smells really like Chanel No.5.

I bought the Suddenly Madame Glamour one last year after hearing good reviews but I wasn't too keen on it.

I was very surprised when I tried Woman 1 - so similar to Chanel No.5 which is my favourite perfume but is now sadly beyond my budget.

I am delighted to have something similar and for a couple of pounds.

no but I bought some for 14 year old daughter's stocking - great to hear it has good reviews!

Yes - i am a no 5 fan but couldnt believe how much this smelt like it. It has great lasting power too.

How much is it?

Is lidl the one that also does the really nice moisturiser for only a couple of pounds?

under a fiver anyway.

I paid €3.99 so it is probably about £2.99.

Really? Oh Em GEE! I'm getting some. I don't care if it evaporates to cat's piss, it's got to be worth a whirl for that money.

Let me know what you think BOFingSanta.

I think the Madame Glamour one is supposed to be like Coco but I'm not familiar with it but the Woman 1 is definitely very like Chanel No. 5.

I had a spray of it in there the other day. I can still smell it on my parka and it's lovely. smile

I've got the glamour one which is nice. I'm going to ask my mum or nan if they can pick me the other scent when they go shopping smile

Someone gave me a bottle of one of the Lidl ones last year I think.

It was rather nice though not my usual style.

It is foul - gave me a migraine within minutes and after half an hour smells of lingering cat wee - lol honestly speaking.

BOFingSanta Sun 16-Dec-12 22:15:13

Some perfumes just do that though, even lovely expensive ones.

Is this actually available in the UK? I've only seen the Madame Glamour one, and the staff didn't appear to know of any others.

I looked on Ebay and the only one is the Madame Glamour one. I am intreagued by the Woman 1 one now.

I'm in Ireland. I assumed it would be available in most stores. My closest Lidl is in a tiny, arse end of nowhere town. I never thought we would have products not available elsewhere.

Not much coming up on google for it.

Small white box with black trim. Suddenly Woman 1. Maybe it's new and will be in other stores eventually. I'll ask at my store the next time I'm in.

If you wouldn't mind, that would be great. I might try to twist your arm, to get you to post me one if it isn't a horribly enormous pain in the arse (and please don't worry if you can't, I know how hectic this time of year can be if you aren't as lazy as me ). I'd reimburse you and send you something nice wink

Someone I was talking to on Fb said she saw a huge stand of them in her local lidl and she was in England, i'm sending my mum and grandparents out on a search for it :D

BOFingSanta Tue 18-Dec-12 19:43:34

It's strange though- I can't see it online anywhere. The only mentions of it are on this thread confused

GreenyEyes Tue 18-Dec-12 19:46:04

Hoh no no no you don't!

I fell for this last time and bought that Suddenly Madame Glamour shite. Never again.

BOFingSanta Tue 18-Dec-12 19:49:21

Oh come on, four quid? It's got to be worth a punt, no?

GreenyEyes Tue 18-Dec-12 19:55:05

Honestly BOF it was a minging, nostril stripping affair that resulted in a killer migraine. But on the plus side, I did pay less than a fiver for the privilege

ISawSantaKissingThePortlyPinUp Tue 18-Dec-12 19:55:50

I found a review of it on a forum with a couple of photos last night, I cant remember how I googled it though to find it hmm

BOFingSanta Tue 18-Dec-12 19:59:15

But all the stuff online is about how the respected Perfumers' Guild did a proper study with 100 women, and 90-odd% preferred Madame Glamour to Coco Mademoiselle. The stuff goes for a tenner now on eBay!
