Perfume Dupes For Designer Fragrances: We all have a signature scent that makes us feel confident and energetic as we walk through our office aisles or when entering the party, leaving a beautiful sillage behind that people can instantly recognize us with.
While most of us love to drape our skin with a luxe designer fragrance, it is not always possible to use them on a day-to-day basis. Designer perfumes are quite on the expensive side to be used regularly.
Thankfully, there is an array of drugstore brands’ fragrances that come to our rescue as alternatives for our favourite high-end perfumes.
You can easily find an affordable fragrance dupe in India for any designer perfume that you like. The difference between the designer perfume and its affordable alternative is usually very faint and unnoticeable.
In this post, I have shared the 5 best perfume dupes for designer fragrances. These dupes will not even cost you 1/4th of the amount of the original fragrance. Sounds unbelievable? Keep on reading to see it yourself!

Dupe For Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Toilette
There cannot be a better dupe for Black Opium fragrance than DeBelle Fine Fragrance Body Mist Haute Noir! It is my most favourite fragrance that I have tried out to date. The prominent coffee, vanilla, and orange blossom accords of Black Opium are the same in Haute Noir by DeBelle.
Since Black Opium is priced at ₹6000, DeBelle’s Haute Noir as its alternative is definitely a steal deal. The best part is that this particular fragrance is quite long-lasting.
It is a “body mist” but if you spray it on your clothes, the fragrance lingers for long. Haute Noir is my favourite fragrance from DeBelle. DeBelle fragrances are currently only available in India, but they will be launching in other countries very soon.
Recently, the brand has also launched luxurious scented candles range that I have featured on my list of Best Scented Candles in India.
