A smell-a-like is a perfume that smells like a designer fragrance but with a different name and packaging, and at a cheaper price. A smell-a-like isn't an exact copy, but often smells very similar.
If like me you love Armani Si but grudge paying for it (unless of course someone buys it for you) this is a brilliant dupe. And because of the cost you can be as liberal with it as you like...trust me, only you will know it's not Si. Aesthetically speaking, I love the bottle...thick rounded glass that feels substantial and expensive in your hand when spraying, although the lid is a little lacking, I'm not planning to wear the lid anytime soon, It's all about the juice. Buying another bottle now. £6.99 on ebay just now.
