Dupe Alert: Miss Tutu Perfume v Chanel Coco Mademoiselle

Hi everybody,


I have a bit of a different post today- a new perfume dupe that I have recently found. I have long heard of Milton Lloyd- a UK based perfume company that specialise in creating dupes of famous branded perfumes. Now I cannot abide and would never support counterfeit goods or the black market economy, but I love a dupe. As far as I know, each perfume is £4 on the website http://www.milton-lloyd.co.uk/ which is not bad value. They only deliver to UK addresses however which is why I shelved the idea. However, this caught my eye in a local pharmacy a few weeks ago and I couldn't believe it. It cost €5.99 and is meant to be a dupe of Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. I owned Coco Mademoiselle back in the day and it was one of my favourites, and my all time fave is another Chanel offering, Chance, which I will keep on repurchasing over and over. 

I am terrible at describing smells so I will just take what is on the website for your reference-

A modern sensuous chypre fragrance with bergamot, muguet and water fruits to sparkle. 
Precious jasmin, velvety red rose and woody vetivert give heady floralcy which reaches into a warm feminine sensuous background of amber, patchouli, creamy vanilla

This perfume lasts for so long. I am very fussy when it comes to smells, and a general rule of thumb that I abide by is you shouldn't be able to smell a person before you see them. This is definitely not overpowering, I literally use one spritz of this and it lasts the entire day. I have showed it to a few people already and they all purchased it since and love it. I also have very sensitive skin and some shower gels would irritate my skin quite badly but I have had no irritation around my wrists at all from this.


The packaging isn't the most glamorous and it definitely doesn't scream Chanel but it does the job nicely. You get 50 mls of perfume which is quite a decent size really. I've used it practically every day for the last few weeks and it's barely made a dent in it. One spritz of this is perfectly adequate to last a whole day- I usually spritz on my left wrist, dab that on my right and job oxo.

Just for your reference, if you are looking for dupe perfumes, the following is the list of the perfumes Milton Lloyd manufacture and the perfume that they dupe are next to them. For now, they don't deliver to Ireland but if you can arrange for a friend from the UK to send them over to you, do it! I think there are loads of reviews of these- just pick your favourite perfume and see if there is a dupe.

  2. HI Aisling,
    Like you, i was in my local pharmacy when i saw this for €5.99. Expecting it to be pure dishwater for that price, I was very pleasantly surprised at the smell. It screams "Coco Madamoiselle", only at one tenth the price! I love Coco Madamoiselle, but tend to keep it for special occasions due to the cost....now I can smell like Coco all the time, but at a fraction of the cost!!!
    Great review by the way!
    Look forward to trying some of the other ones if i can find them! I'll definitely be spreading the word!

    1. Hi Louise,I would be exactly the same as you in that you would expect dishwater perfume at such a low price. I am keeping an eye out for other ones too so if I find them I'll keep you posted! I actually picked up Suddenly Woman in Lidl before Xmas for €3.99 and I love it almost as much as my Chanel No 5 EDT- I wouldn't say it's a dupe but it's a really new perfume if you can pick it up! :) x Thanks for dropping by!

  3. Hi Ashling,

    I know this blog entry is from last year but I am curious to know if you found more of the Milton LLoyd perfumes. I'm a fan too.

    regards

    1. I have been buying good quality perfumes that smell just like high street store perfumes,
      FM16 smells just like Jimmy Choo
      FM 16 smells just like Coco Mademoiselle
      FM54 mells just like Hugo Boss
      and there are many more from £11.99 for a 30ml bottle

      Infact better as The FM Group offer high quality perfumes and fragrances containing 20% perfume oil
      compared to the weaker Eau de Toilette containing 6-8% which people often purchase on the High Street.

    2. Thank you. I have looked on eBay but nothing there .. even on the actual Milton lloyd website. I have found Define from Next which smells like Armani Lei (She).... absolutely gorgeous. I tried the Armani on the left wrist and Define on the right wrist, not much difference at all and the dupe lasted around 8 hours.

  14. There are several types of incense, the most common types being sticks and cones. There is also resin sold in big bars, which is cut or moulded into pieces at home. Incense produces a very strong smell, which some people like and others find overpowering. here
