The Smell of Lidl

Posted on the 25 September 2013 by Casual Martini @CasualMartini
Couple of weeks ago I stumbled across some blog posts stating that Lidl created a dupe of Coco Mademoiselle fragrance by Chanel and that it is pretty damn good and costs just a couple of euros. If I remember correctly it even won in a blind test and because I love a good gimmick, I rushed to my local Lidl and checked stuff out.
The Lidl perfume costs 3,99 euros, it's Eau de Parfum, it's a 50ml glass bottle and it's named Suddenly Madame Glamour (I cringe every time I hear this silly name).I sprayed some on my wrist, thinking it will probably go sour in a couple of minutes and went to check out the fancy Chanel in a local perfume store.
The price for the Coco  Mademoiselle is of course a lot higher, around 75 euros for 50 ml. And the smell? To my amateur nose, it smelled almost completely the same. And the good news was - the Lidl perfume didn't start smelling like a toilet deodoriser in couple of hours, it stayed the same well into the evening.
And yes, I went back to Lidl and bought myself a bottle. Heck, it's cheap and in my opinion it smells very feminine and classic, perfect for day and night, winter and summer.The smell of Lidl
Oh and P.S.: There is also a man's fragrance called X-Bolt (another stupid name, I know). I took a whiff of that one as well and it smells quite sexy. This one supposedly won the blind test as well. Now you know gents!
Any comments are appreciated. Would you buy a perfume from a supermarket? ;)
