The moment you receive a super luxurious and expensive perfume as a gift and you fall in love with it, only to discover that you cannot use it everyday because it is too painful for your wallet to repurchase it. Does this sound familiar to you?! I had this experience quite a lot so usually I have two kinds of perfumes: the everyday perfume, with an okay to nice scent, but affordable to repurchase, and the special occasions perfume, which are my favorite scents and super expensive…what a shame! Everyone should be able to afford their favourite scents for everyday use. And this is exactly what Éclat Perfumes make possible! I was totally amazed to hear that they create and offer the twins of known perfumes for a small price, but how similar would they be and how would they actually compare?! One of my favorite perfumes is Thierry Mugler’s Angel. I adore the sweet scent and the recognition of this perfume and it has been my favorite for years now. I got the chance to take a closer look at Éclat Perfumes No. Called “Blue Star”, which is a dupe for “Angel” according to other bloggers and by the hint through the name.
Éclat Perfumes is located in Germany and their perfumes are made in Germany too. Obviously, they also ship to Germany, but also within Europe. They have a variety of 330 different perfumes and if you just browse through the world-wide web you will find lists of the perfumes and their famous sisters and brothers. Yes, they also offer perfumes for men and not only for women!
The packaging of the Éclat Perfumes is simple and sleek and looks elegant. I think that a bunch of these will really look pretty together, but unlike their pricier idols they do not come with differently shaped bottles. All perfumes have the same shape and packaging. On the other hand this is probably also one of the reasons these perfumes are so much more affordable. The price for a bottle containing 55 ml is usually at 19.95 €!
Let’s see how the perfume performs, since this is the main reason why we buy our beloved perfumes: the scent! I’m showing you Éclat Perfume No. 16 called “Blue Star”. This oriental and sweet perfume has these notes:
top note: bergamot, jasmine, cassia, coconut, mandarin, melon, cotton candy
middle note: apricot, blackberry, honey, jasmine, lily of the valley, orchid, peach, plum, rose, red berries
base notes: amber, caramel, musk, patchouli, chocolate, tonka bean, vanilla
As I said, this perfume is the sibling of Thierry Mugler’s Angel. You will find that even the notes above are the same in both products! After applying it on my skin I was totally convinced by the Éclat Perfume: it is hard to tell which one is the perfume from Éclat and which one is the original. Even in terms of lasting power the Éclat Perfume is as strong as the perfume from Thierry Mugler. I’m amazed!
Would I recommend trying out Éclat Perfumes?! Definitely! If you have a chance to get your hands on one or the other perfume you will be amazed how similar this perfume is to your favorite brand- at least it works for No.16, which I tested and compared here. Some of the names of the perfumes make it easy to guess which is their sibling perfume, like “Blue Star”, but for others it is more hard to detect. You can try to give it a search first, or check out other blogs. This perfume has become my everyday perfume and I love it so much! I definitely plan on buying other perfumes from Éclat Perfumes. You can obtain this perfume from Éclat Perfumes for 19.96 €.
What is your favorite perfume and would you consider to buy the dupe by Éclat Perfume if they have it?
