Suddenly Madame Glamour

In December Lidl launched its long awaited 'Suddenly Madame Glamour'. As soon as it was released it flew off the shelves. Unfortunately I did not get a bottle in time and was RAGING! After plaguing the poor Lidl twitter team for ages asking when it was back in store I had a bit of luck last week! Suddenly Madame Glamour was back in stores for Valentines Day! I skipped down to my local Lidl and picked up a few bottles (One for me, my Mam and my boyfriends Mam) Each bottle was a bargain €3.49!

So why did I want to get my hands on this perfume so badly? For months I had been reading in the media and online just how much Suddenly Madame Glamour is like Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle. (The perfume modelled by the lovely Keira Knightley) A blind smell test was carried out and 90% of people tested prefered the Lidl version over the Chanel! A blind test was also carried out on Tom Dunnes radio show on Newstalk where once again Suddenly Madame Glamour beat Chanel again!

So what did I think? Did I waste my €3.49 on cheap horrible unwearable perfume? Firstly I was quite impressed with the packaging. It looks a lot more expensive than what I paid for it. Honestly when I first sprayed the perfume I was 'Oh God it's awful'. BUT! After a few minutes the scent had changed and I actually quite liked it! It has a lovely floral scent that is very wearable. The only downside I found is that the staying power is not the best. I have not compared it to Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle yet but I will shortly. (I will give an update to see if it actually is a Coco Mademoiselle dupe.) In the meantime I would recommend you to run to Lidl before they sell out of this bargain!

  1. Since Mademoiselle is my favourite perfume I decided to look for it in Lidl one day but it was sold out too. I'll definitely try it but I don't see myself replacing my Mademoiselle as even though the Lidl cheaper might be similar and much MUCH cheaper, theres nothing like going to the Chanel counter and picking it up, its definitely a treat purchase and usually get it for special occasions so I wouldn't want to replace it with the Lidl version haha!


    1. Oh no! Did you try any other Lidl shops? You should get the Lidl version to wear on a normal day but definitely use the Chanel for special occasions :) There definitely is nothing like a treat! At the same time there is nothing like a bargain so I would get both. :)

  3. I love this perfume, I only discovered it on Sat but it's just such a pretty scent! I'm wearing it today... put it on at 8am and can still smell it but it's definitely fading

    Very good buy for £3.99 :)
