Choosing the perfect men’s fragrance can be difficult.
It’s also expensive, with the cost of aftershave and perfume rising by as much as nine percent this year.
If you’re looking to cut your grooming budget, it makes sense to switch to one of these designer dupes. . .
STEAL VICTORY: Paco Rabanne Invictus was one of the favorite fragrances of 2022.
Get the EDT for £42.99 for 50ml at The Perfume Shop. Or head to Zara and pick up Blue Spirit EDT for just £12.99 for 80ml. It smells incredibly similar.
BLUE FEELING: Bleu De Chanel is a stunning fragrance, but the price is high.
A bottle will set you back £89 for 50ml, but many love the Artiscent Atelier Eau de Parfum Vetiver Arome 50ml, £11.99 at Superdrug.
This is a saving that should not be underestimated.
CULT CLASSICS: If you prefer Jean Paul Gaultier, visit Aldi. Lacura Gentleman costs £5.99 for 100ml, has base notes of vanilla, amber and sandalwood and will be available in stores on December 8th.
It’s an excellent dupe of the classic Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, currently £34 for 40ml at John Lewis.
MAKE IT SPICIER: Dior Sauvage EDP is sure to be at the top of many Christmas lists this year. A bottle is currently £64 for 60ml at Boots. But at Superdrug try the tangy new Bespoke Oriental Woods and Amber EDP, £9.99 for 100ml – very similar.
UPPER AREA: If you’re a fan of something a little more specific or unfamiliar scents, it can be harder to find a cheap option.
