£3.99 Suddenly Madame Glamour perfumeTop Chanel smell-alike. 50ml bottle, at Lidl
If you're looking for a Chanel smell-alike, Suddenly Madame Glamour perfume is £3.99 for a 50ml bottle in Lidl stores nationwide (find your nearest).
Forumites swear it smells just like Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, which is normally £61ish for 50ml. We've also done some in-house testing at MSE Towers, and it scored highly against the more expensive brand.
Obviously we can't guarantee you'll scents the similarity, but it's worth a nosey.
