More smell-a-like news, from Lidl this time - mentioned on two appropriate fragrance threads of mine, but thought I'd post it as a Deal to let more people know.

The esteemed publication The Sun had a story just over a month ago, stating 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/£3.99 Suddenly/G Bellini bottles.

Lidl's new perfume range in full:

Aura by Suddenly

Aura De Aquamarina - A beautiful fresh floral fragrance ideal for the warmer months, or maybe holidays in the Mediterranean sun.
*Like Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gioia - though another reviewer suggests it's like Armani She

Aura D’Elle – A floral perfume with notes of Bulgarian Rose and White Jasmine.
*Similar to NARCISO RODRIGUEZ for her

Aura Angelica - A scent that combines musky, woody aromas with deep floral notes.
*Dupe of Thierry Mugler Angel

Aura De Amor – A fruity fragrance with a mix of mandarin, melati jasmine, sandalwood and musk.
*Supposedly Cacharel Amor Amor

Aura De Esplendor – An opulent, fruity-floral perfume with notes of rose with a hint of delicate jasmine.
*Like Dior J'Adore

Aura New York - Inspired by New York City’s glamour, this fragrance is vibrant and spirited.
*Dupe of DKNY Women

Aura En Rose – Contains the scents of an entire bouquet of flowers, perfect for date night.
*Similar to Lancome La Vie Est Belle

Aura Unicke - A citrus floral fragrance, combining bright notes of mandarin orange, papaya and bergamon.
*Like CK One
2871942.jpg2871942.jpgEssence by G. Bellini

Essence Dark Blue – An aromatic and dry scent with a floral character.

Essence Unicko – This is an oriental fragrance for men with citrus notes throughout.
*Similar to Solo Loewe

Essence Aqua Fresh – A light fragrance, inspired by the fresh sea and warm sun.
*Reminiscent of Acqua Di Gio Homme

Essence Victory – A fragrance for sports lovers, with energetic notes and a zesty fruitiness.

*Womens' (Aura by Suddenly) comparisons from here elblogdemarianrolca.blogspot.co.uk/201…tml

About Mens' (Essence by G Bellini) - Here's a glowing review of Unicko: basenotes.net/thr…ni)

Unicko, Aqua Fresh by G Bellini and some Aura by Suddenly scents, reviewed on smell-a-likes dot com: smell-a-likes.com/bra…idl (comments on here suggest Aura En Rose smells like Viktor And Rolf Flowerbomb, but most other reviewers compare it to Lancôme La Vie Est Belle!)

This Spanish blogger cafe-con-canela.blogspot.be/201…tml says Aura New York smells like DKNY Be Delicious, not DKNY Woman

Not sure about "Essence By G Bellini" Dark Blue and Victory, but I'll update if I do find out !

Unfortunately I didn't see them in my Jamaica Street, Glasgow store tonight, and I pop in every week or so - anyone seen these in the wild?

Can't see them on the Lidl dot co uk website, but mumsnet mentions "Aura By Suddenly" scents in passing as far back as August 2017 (which kinda contradicts the release date The Sun mentioned above!) mumsnet.com/Tal…ain

Good find - thanks for sharing!
I saw them in my local but it was about November time I think.

UPDATE: they were available from 30th November.

I was being sarcastic when I said "the esteemed publication, The Sun" just in case people think I've had a bang on the head

The Sun's article does imply these fragrances were released 30th November, though the mumsnet thread is from August, so, who knows (may have been released earlier in Ireland than the UK from bloggers I'm reading) - for example, 11 June 2017 is the date of this Irish Blogger's post lovelifeandlittleones.blogspot.co.uk/201…tml

Title says "More Smell-A-Likes Recently Released In Lidl, For Men (Essence By G Bellini) And Women (Aura By Suddenly), (See OP For Full Comparisons), 100ml Bottles, £4.99 In Store @ Lidl"

My blurb in the original post (right at the bottom) also says: "Can't see them on the Lidl dot co uk website"
Edited by: "louiselouise" 6th Jan
Anyone spot these around London stores?
An alternative to these. Poundstretcher sell smell-a-like perfumes & aftershaves.

Branded Dorall, all 100ml and only £2.99. Possibly on offer at 2 for £5, but check in store. Some of them are very good. Certainly more than passable for everyday use -

Says in store in the title, which I quoted, maybe just take your time reading I agree there's a lot of blurb there, but you can't accuse me of not doing my research before I post

I like Angel Muse, not so keen on Angel (though you're right, Eco Refills or the Thierry Mugler Source service is still costly)...will update if I see this on my travels. I'll try getting to my other two local Lidls soon and report back.

Interested to know what the G Bellini Mens' scents Dark Blue and Victory smell like, haven't been able to get to my other Lidls yet.

Curious to try Aura New York by Suddenly as my sister adores DKNY Woman and gets a bottle every year, yet she absolutely hates DKNY Be Delicious (as a Spanish blogger compared it to) - will update if/when I find out.
Doubt, this will be back in stock till Easter.

It's hard to say, I can get to three Lidls within two miles or so (don't really travel to them often) but the fragrance selection on offer can be very random. X-Bolt and Suddenly Madame Glamour seem to be staples now rather than seasonal in most stores (must be because they are so popular).

Suddenly Woman II appears now and then (Chanel No5 copy). Haven't spotted Suddenly Diamonds (Boss Orange) again since it appeared a few years ago.

I will remain optimistic !

Suddenly Diamonds is normally available in Feb/March ready for Valentines or Mothers Day (cannot remember exactly when) and then again in November. I can confirm the November dates were 23/11/17 and 24/11/16 as I wrote them in my diary so I would remember when I can stock up again.

Haven't seen "Diamonds" for ages so that's good to know. I can't stand Chanel No5 (Suddenly Woman I) but it is a very, very good copy.

Same here. Suddenly Diamonds is my favourite (Boss Orange) and I don't mind Suddenly Madame Glamour (Coco Madamoiselle). They also have a hand cream to match Madame Glamour which is available all year and is less than £1

Yep, I have a few of those (Madame Glamour = Coco Mademoiselle knockoff) hand creams and made it into a Deal over a year ago! hotukdeals.com/dea…470

A blogger mentioned a Cien Madame Glamour Roll On Deodorant, circa 2014, 79p at the time, which I've never, ever seen helloterrilowe.com/201…tml

Looking through Google even brings up an X-Bolt Roll On Deodorant, not sure if the UK ever had these 33025848-H01JX.jpgThe Suddenly Madame Glamour Gift Set (Body Wash/Body Lotion) is pretty great, that usually appears around Valentine's Day. The Candle is a bit rubbish, though.

And that's me off on a slight tangent...

Ironically enough I was just thinking the same recently, and I popped into my local this evening and they had it in there all of a sudden! Not sure if it'll be store specific but its handy to know they're still making it

I forgot to mention the deodorant - I've used it before and it was fine.

Still doesn't make much sense, I was just putting it on your thread as I remembered reading it and thought you would like to inform/repost to the masses it was available on the 8th, before someone nicked your hard graft.
I'm off to Google b3ta,

b3ta is a humorous community (used to be solely a Yahoo! newsletter I think) with lots to read, image and Youtube challenges and all sorts of gubbins going on.

I'll bung on a new thread about this, then, hopefully I'll find a few bottles this time around. All I've seen is the usual X-Bolt, No1, Suddenly Madame Glamour scents in my stores.

Just noticed the essence is 100ml the bolt normal stuff is 50ml and £4 I think.
So it seems decent value for £5

Can't comment on Essence Dark Blue as I don't know the Hugo Boss or D&G equivalents, but more feedback is always welcome
