Franck Olivier Sunrise 75ml mens EDT (Smells almost identical to Abercrombie Fitch Fierce/Mont Blanc Legend) £12.95 delivered @ Cheap Smells

Found 27th Apr 2013
This is a great cheap alternative to Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce/Mont Blanc Legend. Smells almost identical to them both and for a fraction of the cost.

Bought a bottle as soon as it went on offer and after having recieved it and tested it out myself I can honestly say I no longer need to buy Mont Blanc Legend or Abercrombies Fierce which costs an arm and leg to get in this country. Also lasts that little bit longer and stronger than Mont Blanc Legend which can be quite weak smelling depending on the weather. Longevity can be a bit spotty averaging 5-6 hours which isn't bad for a cheapie.

Check out the reviews on Amazon.com. It's more known to the U.S folks and lesser known on our shores so there's more reviews on the Amazon.com site than the UK site.

Love and have owned Fierce for years, so I've ordered this in hope that it'll be a good enough substitute...

Will see how we go...

Worth a punt!

Debate about Legend vs. Fierce that mentions Sunrise here at Basenotes

Reviews look good

SOLD OUT already! Lost my chance.

reminds me of the Volkswagen commercial....listen to the door closing....just like a Golf......handles just like a golf....like a golf, but not a golf..but a hatchback...smells almost like ....at cheap smells....
might be good what do i know...just reminded me of the Golf advert..thats all..hehe

Missed it, have been trying to get a hold of this at a reasonable price

Damn! Would like to buy this, but sold out, done anybody know when it be back in stock or how do we know it be back in stock?

Ended up buying on ebay for just under £20, not quite a bargain like this but if it saves me buying Fierce then im happy.

Crap. Was going to order another bottle for a birthday present. Hope they get more back in stock. Still a pretty reasonable price if its under £20 on eBay though.

Its also listed on google shopping from an outfit called 'trade services' but dont be tempted by the price, they are cowboys

I'm not that hurry to buy this so think I will wait when it come back in stock from cheapsmells.

Try "America Legend" from Milton Lloyd fragrances if you want a cheaper version of Fierce.
A 50ml bottle is only £3.99 delivered at scentsational perfumes
Its also sold on Amazon and Ebay

Most Milton Lloyd smell-a-likes get good reviews , though i have not tried this one myself . I thought the geniune Mont Blanc legend was very quick to lose its smell on the skin ( i don't know if fierce or the copies are any better ).

If a scent vanishes off your skin in no time, it's likely down to dry skin. Either moisturise or spray on your clothes (something you'll wear for the day like a shirt, rather than a jacket.)

I put Legend onto a sampler card and it's lasted a week.

Mont blanc Legend simply has poor longevity in comparison to many other fragrances.
Million ; Diesel -only the brave tattoo and Issey Miyake last all day. Legend stops smelling after a couple of hours sprayed on the same skin.

I quite like the smell - it is just very poor value as it does not smell for long. So its even more of a reason to buy a smell-a-like if you like Legend.

The Ebay seller for Sunrise has ended the listing.

Noticed that, they had supposedly over 10 available and only sold 2.

Second time you've posted about Milton Lloyd fragrances on my deals. Good reviews or not from my own personal experience with their fragrances they smell toxic and synthetic as hell. I do not like having to wait for the extremely strong and harsh smell of cheap perfumers alcohol to subside before being able to smell anything worth noting. Not to mention that smell of perfumers alcohol continues to linger throughout the scent life.

Also I mentioned this the last time you mentioned Milton Lloyds...the reason they do not have opaque or transparent bottles is because you do not get 50ml worth of juice. You'd be lucky if you get 30ml in there. Many have reported back after using Milton Lloyd scents and mentioned how a 50ml can only last a week or two of use. Doesn't matter how many times you spray yourself a 50ml should last a lot longer than a week or two unless you're drinking the stuff.

I'm trying to post GOOD cheap alternatives to pricier scents so please don't ruin that theme I have going with my deals by mentioning Milton Lloyds.

This is a deals site. I posted about Milton Lloyd fragrances as they have good reviews and are cheap ( cheaper than the alternatives you posted) . Just because you did not like them does not mean other hotukdeals readers would not like them.

Many of their fragrances do actually come in semi transparent bottles , so you can see how much there is. I seriously doubt they would say 50ml if there wasn't 50ml in them ( they are a British company not Chinese). Perhaps the seller you bought from had sent you a part full bottle.

For a very long thread on fragrance smell-a-likes look on this moneysavingexpert thread :here

Anyone reading it will notice numerous good reports about Milton Lloyd fragrances. Most saying they smell just like their expensive counterpart. There are also other brands listed - its a good read for any moneysaver .

Seen it all before.

And I'm sure you've seen comments like this before:

"JonnyJuke3 months, 4 weeks ago #31REPLYREPORTLIKEIGNORE
"Smells exactly like Jean-Paul Gaultier" - No, not quite. I thought I'd give this a go as I love "Le Male" and money is tight. Arrived in the post today and, while I can see why people say they're sort of similar, the experience of wearing it is quite different.

"Le Male" is soft, warm scented and relaxing, it stays with you all day in a good way. "Bondage" is quite sharp and alcoholic and seems to fade quickly (or perhaps it just doesn't have the same self awareness "Le Male" has). The scent of "Bondage" does improve when it settles with the skin, but the sharp musk (common among cheap perfumes) remains. I'll see if the experience improves with time and report back. Yes, I know it's cheap as chips but I just wanted to warn people that "exactly the same" is exaggerating.

I've heard "Cuba Gold" and "Perry 360 Ellis White" are great "Le Male" clones but I'm a bit cautious after this. Anyone had any experience with those?

**EDIT/UPDATE**

So, I just wanted to share that although cheap, the 50ml lasted me about one week. ONE. WEEK. Due to the weakness of the products strength I had to apply more than I would normally but I didn't spray to excess. I was genuinely shocked when it ran out because it still felt quite heavy and I thought I must have broken the nozzle. However, the item itself is just heavy. Maybe that's why they made the bottle matte black- so you can't look in horror at how fast the stuff is going.

I bought 125ml of the real Le Male for £38 last year. It lasted me 5 months solid. So, for the "clone" at it's new price of £3.19, which it seems I'd have to get a weekly supply of, I'd be paying just under £13 a month. Which would be mean in the same time scale of 5 months I'd end up dishing out £65 FOR A CLONE.

Maybe this is good for those who need something cheap RIGHT NOW, but in the long run it's better to invest in the real deal."


Create your own deal thread and stop promoting Milton Lloyd here since that's all you seem to do. Like you said this is a deals website. SO POST A DEAL.

I bought some milton lloyd bongage perfumes few month ago, but they're nowhere good compare to real deal you get so seem crap and ML have awful longevity smell just not there after 1 hour seem pointless buying cheap perfume , complete waste of money. It's hard to finding good brand similar smell for low price.

I just contacted them cheapsmells hopefully to know when Franck Olivier Sunrise be back in stock, would like to get them.

Lol. Unlucky. Guess we'll just wait for CheapSmells to get stock back in or hope Amazon.co.uk start stocking it with free delivery because at the moment it's only U.S based sellers that really have them in stock.

You know what's happened there?

Seller sells an item for £20, buys from Cheapsmells for £13, pays fees of about £3 total, profits by £4.

But if Cheapsmells are OOS, the seller has no supplier and no item to ship.

Haha didn't think of that. You're probably right. Made enough to get him a few scratch cards.

Is this really selling for £13 wow

Got mine today smells exactly like Abercrombie Fierce Bargain!!

There are not such exact smell to original.
Tried so advertised Bolt from Lidl.Must be "exact" to Boss Bottled. In your dreams...Boss Bottled smell lingers all day and even to another day,when Bolt's smell is just for 10-20 minutes max. Same like fake perfumes from white vans. Sorry -not for me.

That's what you get for buying a fragrance for £3.99 and expecting it to smell the "exact" same as the more expensive fragrance that it was inspired by...you idiot.

Besides, can you not read the title of the deal? Smells "almost identical". If someone found it exactly the same as the original that's because we all have a unique sense of smell.

Anyway I do not post crappy fragrances. I own and buy enough to know what is a good but cheaper alternative to a more pricier scent. I only post alternatives that last a long time on your skin and project nicely. I also do not post cheap alternatives that stink from beginning to end of perfumers alcohol which can sting your nostrils or the nostrils of those who happen to smell you. I've even posted an Acqua Di Gio alternative that most would say is better than ADG because of how long it lasts and how similar it smells.

Now...please go cry somewhere else about how you managed to spend your life savings on Lidls' X-Bolt and not get what you expected.

Exactly !
Had this perfume for £21.99 one day, rubbish!!! Returned same day and never ever will buy.

I've got a bottle and it does smell like Abercrombie and Fitch - Fience!

Of course it isn't exact and not as strong, but for a quarter of the price, it is a fantastic deal... I just wish I bought a few more bottles...

Can't find any, anywhere?!

I've had this 2 days now and although i was impressed with the similarities with Fierce it just doesn't last more than 1 hour on my skin
