The Best Designer Perfume Dupes 2021 | Boujie on a Budget

‎Hi lovely,

welcome to my space. This post is dedicated to all my boujie-on-a-budget readers.

I have worn and researched a few designer fragrance dupes and would love to put you on.

Worthy of note is that although opinions on some of these vary, my findings from personal use, Youtube videos, blogposts and fragrance forums have brought about these lists.

Are there any other designer dupes you know about that didn’t make this list? Do share in the comments section.

I am currently wearing and loving the JRip oud scent as it makes me feel rich. Trust me, people treat you with respect just having this on. Its 70ml bottle currently retails for £79.00. Use discount code METROGYPSIE15 for money off all September at JRIP.


My bottle of  oud & roses has since been obtained by my partner



For those of you who still want the popular designer fragrances but cannot afford the whole bottles, Scent and Co is your plug. You can subscribe to receive various 10ml fragrances straight through your door’s letter hole.

use METROGYPSIE30 for money off your Scent and Co orders. This month, I got the TOM FORD
Neroli Portofino myself, perfect size.

thanks so much for your time on here. Happy shopping and do not forget to use the discount codes.
