Shopper says this £5 fragrance ‘smells almost identical’ to Dior’s Sauvage £94 scent

Officially the most popular men’s fragrance in the UK, Dior Sauvage makes the perfect gift for Christmas. But with a 100ml bottle setting you back a whopping £94, shopping for your loved ones can quickly turn into an expensive task.

Luckily, one savvy shopper on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK appears to have found a solution.

The bargain hunter claims they discovered a “dupe” for the popular scent in their local Lidl supermarket, and took to Facebook to share their excitement.

In the picture shared with her fellow savvy shoppers, the Facebook member raves about Lidl’s G.Bellini Homme scent – and the packaging does look remarkably similar to Dior’s Sauvage fragrance.

“Got this in Lidl today for £4.99 for my teenage son. It smells and looks almost identical,” the user writes on the post, sharing a snap of the Lidl product next to the Dior original.

“Sprayed it on my clothes several hours ago and can still smell it from them,” she adds.

The post is attracting a lot of attention from shoppers who have also tried Lidl’s version themselves and have left their verdict in the comment section below.

“Yes very good copy smell lasts for ages,” one person says, while another writes, “I can recommend this, they do a dupe of one million too, they smell so good and the smell lasts ages too.”

A third person says, “It smells lush!! my daughter's dad got some and the smell lasts ages.”

“Love the smell of that,” a fourth adds.

However, some shoppers aren’t convinced that is an exact dupe for the high-end original, but are still impressed by the scent nonetheless.

One bargain hunter says, “I don’t think it smells the same, but it does smell nice.”

Lidl’s G.Bellini Homme isn’t available to purchase online but if you’re planning on nabbing yourself a bottle in store, you’ll have to be quick. Judging by the comment section, the bargain scent is selling like hot cakes.

“I’ve looked for this a couple times but no luck,” one person has commented.

This isn't the first time Lidl has made news for its beauty ‘dupes’. Earlier this year, the supermarket launched a bargain alternative to Dyson’s popular Airwrap styler, which comes with a hefty price tag of £449 here.

Lidl’s bargain version mimics some of the functions of Dyson’s sell-out original, but retails at a more affordable price of £11.99.

Unfortunately, it’s no longer available to purchase online, but if you’re planning to take a trip to your local store, keep your eyes peeled because it’ll make the perfect gift for any beauty lover.
