Taking to Facebook group Extreme Coupling and Bargaining, the savvy shoppers said they could now get a near-replica scent without having to use their “special occasion” Chanel perfume.

Lidl’s Suddenly by Madame Glamour has become popular thanks to its “citrus and floral notes, incorporating bergamot and jasmine”.

One shopper raved: “My favourite perfume Chanel ‘Coco Mademoiselle’ on the right £98 from Boots, perfume on the left ‘Suddenly’ from lidl for £3.99!!

“They smell exactly the same I am really impressed.”

Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle is said to incorporate the scents of ‘orange and pink raised by the smell of bergamot, jasmine, patchouli, vanilla bourbon, white musk and vetiver Haiti’

And another said: “It’s my fav perfume. Just bought some more.”

However, not everyone was convinced by the bargain “dupe”.

One said: “Can’t beat the real smell of Chanel!” and one Facebook user said: “I have both, although I agree they’re very very similar the Coco one smell lasts a lot longer.”

And another added: “You get what you pay for.”

But even money expert Martin Lewis has likened the smells, and said to the Independent: “There are many ‘smell-alike’ perfumes on the market and a perfect example of this is the Lidl’s perfume and the Coco Mademoiselle.

“This is something we discovered on my TV show [Martin Lewis Money Show], when we got some people to smell them.

“About 50% of them either couldn’t tell the difference or preferred the cheap version.”

One of the big difference between the two perfumes is the branding, with Keira Knightley endorsing Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle, while Lidl’s bottle is more on the plain side.


Meanwhile, B&M is selling dupes of Jo Malone £90 perfumes for only £3.
