*Woops, the bottle is actually 75ml*
Was in Aldi, High Street, Glasgow earlier and saw these Anna Biondi Fragrances - Brilliant Gold (dupe of Dior J'Adore - to me it smells more like Lady Million)
La Bella Vita (copy of La Vie Est Belle)
Flowery Red (Kenzo Flower)
and Romance (not mentioned in the Sun article below, but smells like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle to my nose).
2870553.jpgThe Sun ran a story about these scents about a month ago - three of them, but doesn't really mention "Romance" (in store from 7th December, apparently) thesun.co.uk/fab…er/

The one I was interested in was the La Vie Est Belle knockoff, as I have the "real thing" and wanted to compare - it smells really good!

Flowery Red and Brilliant Gold have reviews on smell-a-likes smell-a-likes.com/bra…ndi

For some reason Aldi's website aldi.co.uk/sea…fum suggests the scents are sold in pairs at £7.98 but they're definitely £3.99 in my store.

My picture in store earlier isn't the greatest, though the price sign mentions a few other scents that aren't on display (?).

Here's a picture of the La Bella Vita: 32984252-uF4Ap.jpg(the website mentioned on the back of the perfume box is maxim-markenprodukte.de/ ) 32984252-TMzZ9.jpg
Here's a review of three of them, originally in French: translate.google.co.uk/tra…xt=

It doesn't mention Romance because it wasn't listed on the MSE website at that time - although it's been updated to say it's like Coco Mademoiselle now moneysavingexpert.com/dea…ldi if that helps?

The Sun article DOES mention Anna Biondi Romance, but it's just (I assume) Aldi copy/paste blurb without any hint about which fragrance it's mimicking.

I stopped reading the MSE smell-a-likes thread as it was full of comments about an oil fragrance company - not that I'm implying anyone there is shilling, but there was so much chatter focussed on them I lost interest.

I added a review, above, about Anna Biondi Romance that states it is a copy of Coco Mademoiselle translate.google.co.uk/tra…xt=

I'll try taking a better in store picture later...not sure why it turned out so rotten, my camera's reasonably good - wet/cold hands, maybe

More smell-a-like news, from Lidl this time.

Just noticed that Lidl too are doing a La Vie Est Belle copy, called Aura En Rose, £4.99 instead of their usual £3.99. thesun.co.uk/fab…ap/ (the Sun story is from 30th November 2017) "The perfumes are in selected regions across the UK from today, but are only available for a limited time."

These new releases seem to be 100ml, rather than the usual 50ml bottles Suddenly/G Bellini scents usually come in.
