What’s this? three reviews in one day? Can you tell half term is over?
My beloved Lidl comes up with the goods once again. For the princely sum of just 4.99 for a 50ml EDP, with enough change for a pack of mini Magnums, I broke a tenner getting this and carried it home like a squirrel with a nut.
I wore this all day, trying to break it down. It was so familiar to me, but do you think I could put my finger on why? It opens with pear, then there’s jasmine and white flowers, but the base…? Now that merged into something more gourmand-y. What was it? There was caramel and patchouli and lots of warm, sweet vanilla. Suddenly-the penny dropped. Lidl Luxury Famous For Her, whether by accident or design, shares a lot of notes with Lancome La Vie est Belle. I wouldn’t go as far as saying it was a dupe, but if La Vie est Belle is your thing, then this probably will be too. Longevity is fantastic. Eight hours later and it’s still there. For 4.99, you can’t go wrong!
Available from Lidl, and if you’re not quick, eBay. Theses are limited edition so don’t wait if you see them in store.
