Home Bargains fans obsessed with ‘unreal’ £1.99 product that saves shoppers £89

Home Bargains has long been known for their affordable beauty buys, beautifully fragranced candles and stocking big name brands at a fraction of the cost. But their most recent launch has proven to be hugely popular with perfume fans, since it could save them nearly £90.

Fragrances that have been on the shelves for months, such as Elegant Pomegranate and Elegant Jasmine and Honey, have previously been likened to Jo Malone's Pomegranate Noir and Honeysuckle and Jasmine, while their men’s ‘Jour’ is very similar to Joop! Homme.

However, beauty fans on TikTok have spotted some brand new ‘unreal’ dupes of high-end fragrances, claiming that they smell ‘just like the originals’. And they best part? They’re only £1.99.

In a video shared to TikTok, Georgia raved about the latest fragrances, and said: "Home Bargains have stepped up their game and they have released brand new perfume dupes - and a lot of them. I smelt them all and they smelt so good - just like the originals.

"And they are so cheap - like £1.99 cheap. It’s unreal."

Georgia shared clips of the affordable fragrances, and the luxury scents they’re similar to, comparing the £1.99 Oh Yes! to Georgio Armani Si and Dreamy Summer to Marc Jacobs Daisy.

Miss Chicago is said to be a dupe of Chanel No 5, which usually retails at £91 for 50ml, so could save shoppers up to £89. Meanwhile, Opal Black - likened to YSL’s Black Opium - had proven so popular, it had sold out.

Fans rushed to comment on the video to share their thoughts, with one writing: “I’ve got the Oh Yes perfume dupe! I’d only found these when I was Xmas shopping. Love Oh Yes.”

Another added: “I want the Daisy one!” While third wrote: “I’m going to the shops on Monday so this will be my first stop.”

Others praised the Jo Malone ‘dupes’, which cost £3.99 each. Manchester Evening News previously reviewed the Pomegranate fragrance and can confirm claims that it ‘lasts all day.’

One shopper wrote: "I've had the pomegranate one for ages and get so many compliments on it and it actually lasts!"

"The pomegranate one is beautiful so strong," another added, with another fan commenting: "I have the elegant jasmine and honey, smells really nice."

You can find the £1.99 fragrances in your nearest Home Bargains store - that is, unless they’re sold out!
