I’ve spotted in a couple of forums that this Lidl fragrance, Suddenly Madame Glamour, is a dupe for Chanel Coco Mademoiselle so obviously I had to try it for myself.

On first squirt it is genuinely vile. It almost smells off or like a very old fragrance with a burst of alcohol and something definitely nasty. BUT, in the time it took me to snap these pictures and come back to write about my findings, it’s totally changed on the dry-down. There are some similarities to Coco Mademoiselle – the real thing it is definitely not, but I’d challenge anyone to tell the difference between this at (on offer) £1.99 and a much more expensive perfume.

I got accidentally sprayed with a new celebrity fragrance the other day which was so obnoxious I was nearly sick (and I’m not even joking) and that retails for over £20. Lidl Suddenly Madame Glamour is infinitely preferable to that.

*NB: Several hours later and Madame Glamour is still going strong (but not too strong!) and just gets better and better the more it lives on the skin, turning into a sweet (ish) skin and floral scent. I’m growing more and more fond of this.
