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.
I bought a bottle of marks and spencers black amber and a bottle of chanel coco noir on the same day and they smell exactly the same.
the chanel is stronger. But comparing prices the marks and spencers version is a brilliant price at £18.00 and the chanel at £165.00. If you did a close eyes test you wouldn't know which one was which.
Just bought this very long lasting and similar to the original.bought it from eBay but half the perfume had leaked into the box as the bottle top was loose.This one was made in the uae but at 5.99 inc p&p it was still a bargain!
