Here at Who What Wear UK, we love a luxury fragrance. There’s something so special about saving up to buy that designer perfume you’ve been lusting after and feeling like a million dollars every time you give yourself a spritz. That being said, as a beauty editor, I truly believe that you don’t have to spend a fortune to smell expensive. In fact, I think there are certain high-street fragrances that give high-end perfumes a run for their money.
We all know that you can’t go wrong with a Zara perfume dupe, but did you know that & Other Stories also does a range of affordable fragrances that smell just as good as cult classics like Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540 and Byredo’s Gypsy Water?
I’ve tried my fair share of & Other Stories perfumes, and I’m always blown away by the chic packaging, the affordable price range and the lasting power of each fragrance. It seems I’m not the only one, as TikTok is full of rave reviews, with many claiming that some of the most popular & Other Stories perfumes smell just like designer alternatives.
So, if you want to create your own collection of expensive-smelling fragrances without breaking the bank, keep on scrolling for the very best & Other Stories perfume dupes to add to your basket. You are welcome.
I’m sure a lot of us have been searching for a dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540. Apparently this & Other Stories perfume smells so similar, with the same notes of jasmine, saffron and amber. For only £28, you really can’t go wrong. Plus, if you already have a bottle of Baccarat Rouge 540, this & Other Stories version is ideal for throwing in your bag and topping up your scent throughout the day.
TikTokers claim that Moon Fiction by & Other Stories is an affordable alternative to Byredo’s iconic Gypsy Water perfume, and I have to admit that even the bottles look super similar. Both fragrances feature notes of sandalwood, amber and citrus, and the contrasting warm and fresh notes make for a truly unique finish.
A £29 dupe for Tom Ford? Yes, please! The Lost Chapter by & Other Stories features creamy notes of sandalwood and tonka bean, while cardamom and cumin add a spicy touch. However, the biggest similarity between this perfume and Tom Ford’s Cherry Smoke is in the woody, smokey notes that make both fragrances perfect for autumn.
I love sweet scents, and this Floral Street perfume was a firm favourite in my collection last summer. However, when I smelt Perle de Coco by & Other Stories, I couldn’t believe how similar it was thanks to its notes of vanilla, caramel and creamy coconut. Trust me: both of these fragrances smell almost good enough to eat.
I’ve been desperate to try Chloé’s mimosa-scented perfume for a while now, and the other day I stumbled across a very similar sounding scent in & Other Stories called Fleur De Mimosa. Both fragrances contain the warm, honey-like notes of mimosa, alongside slightly woodier notes which give an expensive, luxurious finish.
This is another great designer dupe according to TikTok. If you want to smell as citrusy and fresh as Maison Margiela’s Under the Lemon Trees perfume, opt for Arabesque Wood by & Other Stories, with notes of lemon, ginger and watery accord. Everyone will be asking you what you’re wearing.
This is such a gorgeous scent from the brand, with notes of juicy pomegranate, black current, leather and amber.
Need a new scent for spring and summer? Sicilian Sunrise is the fragrance for you thanks to the fresh, citrusy notes.
This fragrance contains all of my favourite notes, from warm vanilla to nutty pistachio and sweet caramel.
How beautiful is this bottle? The perfume is just as good thanks to a blend of spicy black pepper and sweet pear.
If you can’t go to Miami, then why not smell like it, instead? Pink pepper, raspberry blossom and pink cotton candy combine for a truly delicious finish.
Need a date night fragrance? I recommend Midnight Encore. Think fresh coconut water, spicy black pepper, sensual jasmine and salted musk.
