THRIFTY shoppers are always on the hunt for affordable dupes which can save them a fortune, particularly on pricey designer perfume and makeup.
So bargain-hunters get ready, because a couple of Superdrug employees have revealed which budget scents from the health and beauty retailer smell exactly like expensive fragrances – including Chloe, Dior and Tom Ford.
The two girls appear to work at the Newbury store and posted a clip on Superdrug’s TikTok page.
They revealed that each scent in the Artiscent Atelier range is an exact dupe of a popular, more expensive perfume, but costs just £9.99 for a 50ml bottle.
In the clip, they started with the Spring Fleur scent which they said was a dupe for the popular Chloé Fleur de Parfum, which can retail for up to £75.
And the Patchouli Passion scent, which is made up of Orris, Orange Flower, Praline, Vanilla and Patchouli, smells just like Lancome La Vie Est Belle – with Superdrug selling it for £49.

What’s more, the Superdrug workers claim that the Lily Amour variety is an exact dupe of Chanel Chance, which would normally set you back a whopping £79.
And if you love Dior’s Forever and Ever but can’t justify dropping a huge £67 (or more), then why not give Artiscent’s Vanille Blush a go, as the girls reckon it’s exactly the same.
Likewise, Exotic Musk in the Artiscent range supposedly smells amazing, just like Tom Ford’s Santal Blush, without the £141 price tag.
And it’s not just women’s fragrances on offer but men’s too, with the budget range offering dupes for One Million, Paco Rabanne Invictus and Chanel Bleu.
The clip has racked up almost 100,000 views with shoppers left amazed by the incredible budget hack.
And not only are the budget perfume’s affordable, but they seem super luxe, too.
According to the Superdug website, the Artiscent fragrances are created in Paris, home of prestige perfumery, where perfumers are given carte blanche to translate their vision into unique and exciting scents.
