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.
This perfume needs to dissipate for a few minutes but after those undertones come through it is so spot on. I refuse to get the knock off ones from amazon since it’s been discontinued. I get all of my perfumes in a 30 day trial size from Scent Bird and I’m obsessed. I’m so glad I found this one! It’s $14.95 a month I believe!

These two perfumes couldn't smell more different. I have both. They suit different moods! Noa is creamy musk, with a hint of floral that dries down to a woody scent. Lovely is powdery, girly flowers and dries much lighter although with a hint of musk. Just sayin'
