When I was about 14, I had an Anna Sui perfume collection that would put most people to shame. But somewhere along the line, perfume became one of those things that I really, really resent spending money on. Given a spare £60, a new designer fragrance would be way, way down on my list of priorities now. The result of this is that over the years, I have amassed a rather huge mental list of perfumes that I would love to own, but probably never will. Prada Candy, Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream, Chanel Mademoiselle, Miss Dior Cherie…the list goes on and on. Naturally then, when my friend told me there was a great dupe for Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb that cost FOUR FUCKING POUNDS, I threw my scruples about being a copycat to the four fucking winds. Just like Flowerbomb, it has a sweet, oriental scent with notes of musk, green tea and citrus. I picked it up in an amazing little discount cosmetics store in Cardiff called The Powder Room (a gem in itself) but you can shop their whole range online here if you are so inclined. Oh, and I’m definitely not being paid or sponsored for this post, I just really, really like this shit.
If you guys know of any amazing fragrance dupes, please let me know in the comments!
