A pricey perfume that makes you smell amazing and feel confident all day long will always have a special place in your heart, but will come with a big price tag. In such a case, there’s nothing as satisfying as finding a dupe, right? So, we bring you cheaper alternatives that smell just as good as their designer smell-alikes:

Deep Red by HUGO

The fruity top notes of this classic fragrance are perfectly mimicked by the Marks & Spencer True Red perfume. The zesty pineapple and orange aroma will make you feel like a million bucks without having to spend too much.


Hugo Deep Red (90 ml): Rs 4,200, Amazon.in

Marks & Spencer True Red (100ml): Rs 1,399, Myntra.com

Brit For Her by Burberry

Although nothing could ever come close to the luxurious fragrance of Burberry perfumes, the Kylie Minogue Darling comes pretty close. Both versions boast of vibrant fruit notes that will linger on all day long.


Burberry Brit For Her (100 ml) Rs 6,140 Approx.

Kylie Minogue Darling (50ml): Rs 3,318, Amazon.in

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana

D&G Light Blue is the perfect blend of fruity, floral and musky. So is Autograph Azure Breeze by Marks & Spencer. The Azure Breeze aroma is as classy as it is fresh, and its lower price is not the only factor that makes it a must buy.


D&G Light Blue (100 ml): Rs 4,349, Snapdeal.com

M&S Autograph Azure Breeze (100ml): Rs 1,599, Myntra.com

Daisy by Mark Jacobs

If you’re in love with the adorable perfume bottle more than the fragrance, we don’t blame you. In fact, we do you one better by giving you a equally good-looking and smelling variant – Butterfly by Marks & Spencer. It’s just as fresh and fruity, and so much easier on your pocket.


Mark Jacobs Daisy (100 ml): Rs 6,150

M&S Butterfly (90ml): Rs 1,400

J’ Adore by Dior

Another classic, Dior’s J’Adore has been around for ages. It’s sensually sweet fragrance will definitely appeal to you. But if its price doesn’t, get your hands on Zara Rose which is just as stunning. It won’t look as pretty on your dressing table, but your wallet will thank you for it.


Dior J’Adore (30ml):  Rs 7,197, Purplle.com

Zara Rose (30ml): Rs 550 at Zara Stores
