If you can get any dupe fragrances that smells pretty much like a high-end niche perfume brand, but which costs you a lot less, then YES, dupe fragrance shopping is something you should be looking into.
Perfume cloning and perfume duping are thought of as being rather crude and crass, but the truth is that there are some advantages to shopping for clone fragrances in terms of price, quality, and convenience.
There are many different types of clones on the market today, some are considered more expensive than others and some have been around longer than others. But regardless of the price or longevity, clones are an industry term used to describe any fragrance that has been copied from another brand.
These days there are many clone houses in existence from all over the place, but just like with anything else in this world, you get what you pay for! If a clone house charges high prices for their perfumes, then chances are they will be made with better quality ingredients than one that charges less for their scents; likewise, if a clone house charges low prices for their fragrances, then chances are they will be using cheap ingredients to make up their scents.
So how do they manage to sell them at such low prices? Well, the first thing is that they don’t spend money on marketing or advertising their products so that cuts down their costs significantly.
But most importantly, they do not have any advertising budgets, so all sales are done online through various websites and social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram which enables them to reach millions of people worldwide without having to spend anything on traditional forms of advertising like print ads in magazines or television commercials, etc.
Now, a lot of you have been asking this question- “Is it true that a fragrance dupe can achieve a 100% match to the original? The truth is that they will NOT be a 100% match.
The reason for this is simple – they are not made by the same company that makes the original perfume, so they don’t have access to the same exclusive/expensive ingredients that were used when making the original fine fragrance. This also means that they will always smell slightly different, particularly the impressions of the luxurious niche brands, but higher-tier clone houses can achieve duplication as high as 95% match.
Another thing to remember is that some people find it easier to pick up on the nuances between clone perfumes and their originals than others do. So, what might be a perfect match for one person may seem off for another person when smelled side by side with their favourite fragrance. As the adage goes, scents are subjective.
At the end of the day, if you have a specific scent in mind and you want to get the most out of your money, it makes sense to buy a scent that’s going to be close to the real thing without the price tag. If you are local, look for fragrance clones on Philippine e-commerce platforms like Shopee and Lazada, or support quality local brands like Symmetry Lab, Eternal Fragrances, NicheCraft, or best find something you like from our SHOP.
