Hello my lovely friends :) Do you know thast feeling while going through Sephora or Douglas and smelling a wonderful perfume, matching totallaly to you and you hear the voice of the bottle calling for you? You grab the bottle and you’re obsessed and want it so badly – until the moment you see the price. Yep. I know that feeling, my favorite perfumes –Thierry Mugler Womanity, Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire or Chanel Coco Mademoiselle– are just a few of my favorite scents, where the prices are really VERY expensive. I always look out for a sale or a coupon when buying them or comparing the prices online. But now I have discovered another opportunity to get my favorite scents – Dupes of my favorite scents from ÉCLAT.
Éclat Perfumes is a German online shop, creating Dupes of famous and very popular scents. The price for a bottle (55ml) is only 19,95€! Can you believe this? About 20€ seams for me to be a fair price to try them out.
The perfume “212” is the scent I got from Éclat, a dupe of one of my favorites – La Petite Robe Noire from Guerlain and I was so curious to try it out. The first thing I noticed was the packaging: Very plain, just a bottle with the brand name on it an on the bottom of the bottle the number of the perfume – no playful details, no playful, feminine name describing the product, not what I knew from Guerlain.
I sprayed. On the left hand Éclat – smelling. It seamed to be exactly the same scent, but I wasn’t sure, so I did the same with the original on the right hand. The sweet, fruity and very unique scent of that perfume was really exactly the same. I didn’t notice just the slightest difference. The scent was exactly the scent which I loved and I was immediately impressed and forgot the fact about the not so pretty packaging :D
I wondered if it was as long lasting as the Guerlain one and tried it out being out for the night. It is long-lasting, yes, I always use my perfume before going out and when I came home it still smelled so good – but the next morning I didn’t smell it – unlike Guerlain. I would say the scent lasts 10-12 h depending on what you di and where you are, whereas I have the feeling Guerlain lasts really for a complete day. But being honest, that didn’t bother me :D I think even 10 h are enough to go out and after 10 h spraying again is not annoying for me – In fact I love spraying any perfume several times a day, so twice is just a good quote.
Honestly I’m so happy with that service and I’ll have a look at the other dupes , too, since there are some perfumes which I LIKED but didn’t LOVE and I didn’t want to pay 50€ or more for a small bottle. Éclat is definitely a wonderful service for everyone preferring to have a lot of different scents at home and everyone who doesn’t want to pay just for a brand name instead of a scent and there are a lot of dupes like Thierry Mugler Angel, Chanel, Armani, Hugo Boss, almost every popular scent you can think of.
