    The 100ml bottles were £4.99 once upon a time (2-3 years ago) but I guess everything's going up in price!

    Looks like it's:

    Dark Blue (Hugo Boss Dark Blue) - at least, it was before
    Victory (Paco Rabanne Invictus)
    Elegance (Hugo Boss The Scent)
    Acqua Fresh (not sure? will find out - Parfumo dot net says it's the male Acqua Di Gio)

    Cotton Blue (D&G Light Blue)
    D'elle (Narciso Rodriguez For Her)
    De Amor (Cacharel Amor Amor)
    Agua Marina (Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio)
    Stylish Girl (Carolina Herrera Good Girl)

    Might be getting the genders mixed up. All seem to be Eau De Parfum / 100ml, £6.49.

    (Got some of these from an older post from 2021, at the bottom…913 also from here…455 )

    Another edit (yep, Stylish Girl is a dupe of Carolina Herrera Good Girl)

    I went and had a sniff of the dark blue and it's actually D&G Pour Homme, which is my favourite scent. Superb dupe.

    I went to my local store a few days after these went on sale.

    Purchased three of the four mens fragrances, Victory didn't appeal to me at all.

    So far pretty impressed with them, will be on the look out in future just in case other options appear.

    Just goes to show we don't need to spend big money to get something that smells expensive.

    Thanks to jugger1 for starting this thread and to you louiselouise for adding the extra info. Without you both I'd never had know these smell alikes existed.

    You've twisted my arm, I'm going to wangle my way to Lidl to try out Stylish Girl

    It's traditional (at least, in the last few years) for Lidl to offer perfumes around Valentine's Day. I used to buy the Madame Glamour Gift Set (think it was body lotion and shower gel - edit - actually, this was what it looked like) but I've not seen that for a long time - and the MG bottle has had a makeover since then, just as these current scents are in newer bottles.

    I've seen the Madame Glamour Hand Cream and Fabric Conditioner in stores reasonably recently. I have talked about these on HUKD far, far too much over the years.

    The Madame Glamour Fabric Conditioner didn't really seem to linger (unless it's changed in the last year or two, but it was fun trying it out. Was also in Femelle / La Vie Est Belle and a few other fragrances).

    For me, Lidl still make the better of the copycat fragrances, though, I need to give Aldi a fair shout and get trying their newer testers - never seem to see any in the Aldis I go to currently. (edited)

    I agree 100% that Lidl dupes are better quality and longer lasting. I wish they made more fuss around them, the way Aldi do with all their dupes, they’re really missing a trick there

    Yay! Finally made it to the Fort William store - and I could smell perfumes...somewhere...turned out they are right beside the till and the full men's and women's range is there (usually they've sold out quickly, in Glasgow stores at least, especially the women's). Not sure if the price hike, cost of living or locality has put people off a bit.

    *edit: Got Elegance (Hugo Boss The Scent)
    Stylish Girl (Carolina Herrera Good Girl)

    I'd say Stylish Girl (only tried testers of the real scent) is a great copy. Had it on ten minutes though, will update about lasting power.

    another edit: Boyf woke me up this morning (I'm on sleep meds so I tend to sleep in longer than him) with lovely aftershave on, and it turned out he was wearing Elegance.

    The Blue ombre (Stylish Girl) and the Boss The Scent-alike-shaped (Elegance) bottles are a nice touch as well.

    The Stylish Girl lasts maybe 1-2 hours on me (so, not the greatest) but it's a big bottle, cheap and smells good, can't complain!

    Had a try of Essence on one wrist and it lasts quite a bit longer than Stylish Girl. (edited)

    You’re amazing! Thank you! Ive had the Lidl copies of Narciso Rodriguez and Amor Amor in different packaging, the square bottles with the square glass top ( quite stylish- a friend of mine has different coloured ones lined up on a shallow tray in their downstairs loo and they look really classy ). I remember the Amir amor was quite heady and packs a punch for a £4.99 perfume. I’ll definitely be getting myself these as soon as I see them. My recent favourites have been the black option and V&R flower bomb dupes from Aldi, though I got the Marc Jacobs dupe today and it’s really nice
    louiselouise's avatar
    Oh the (Aldi scents) Marc Jacobs one sounds tempting, love Flowerbomb as well. Will keep eyes peeled.

    Thanks both. I'd think I'd given up looking by the time I'd got to the tills!

    louiselouise's avatar
    Says "In Store Now" in the photo.

    Went into our Lidl today and couldn't see any of the perfumes. Are they normally in the health & beauty aisle?

    In Lidl yesterday they had moved them to the front of the shop close to the tills

    Any way to find out which branches have these? I found near my local lidl but they don't have it anymore. It was like a one off stock. And I can't find em anywhere else. Really like a few of these, and great price too!

    My local lidl had the dark water the other day. 6.99 parfum. Knock off of d & g pour homme, it's excellent.

    they are good for the price, shame they don't last more than a few hours
  12. vultura's avatar

    I know this is an old thread, but have either of you spotted the offerings for this year please?
    louiselouise's avatar
    Not sure if there's any scents this year (unless Lidl are releasing them later this year) - it's not on their Valentine's webpage Valentine's Gifting (

    - Was in Lidl today (Fort William store) but it was just the usual suspects52163945-ZzFr6.jpgThe price has went up again - from last year's £6.49, to £6.99 now:52163945-f8TGW.jpgI picked up one of Lidl's promo catalogues - no mention of scents in those either as I got two of their leaflets - this picture was on the back of one of them 52163945-CQbR4.jpg (edited)

    Should also say I had a quick visit to Aldi but didn't have a proper scour (I like to take my time, impossible with my impatient partner in tow). Didn't see any perfumes.

    Picked up a bottle of Dark Blue and Acqua Fresh for myself and D'Elle and Acqua Marina for the missus.

    She really liked D'elle but not the Marina one. It's a straight up dupe of Acqua Di Gioia and for guys, its a great layering fragrance if you have a standard 'blue' fragrance like Voyage.

    The men's one I picked up are really good. Dark Blue is a 90-95% dupe of D&G pour homme from the 90s and has lasted me all day (I've sprayed at 1pm and it's 9pm as I type). The Acqua Fresh is a Acqua Di Gio clone and is basically identical. It'll be my gym fragrance as I can spray heavily and it'll last a solid 5 hours. (edited)
