Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Dupe

I'm a huge fan of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle, but due to its hefty price tag, it's usually one for my birthday/Christmas list. My current bottle is near enough empty, therefore you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this exact dupe from Next. I first came across it when my housemate sprayed some before a night out - when I asked if she was wearing Chanel, she presented her little bottle of Eau Nude. Needless to say I rushed out to purchase one myself the next day. I couldn't believe the resemblance!

After buying my bottle I did a bit of research online and found the notes in both fragrances to be very similar:

CHANEL 
Top notes: Bergamot, grapefruit, orange Middle notes: Jasmine, rose, litchi Base notes: Vanilla, patchouli, musk, vetiver 

NEXT 
Top notes: Raspberry, bergamot Middle notes: Rose, jasmine Base notes: Tonka bean, patchouli 

When I compare both scents side by side, I find Coco Mademoiselle smells ever so slightly muskier. Other than that I really can't tell much difference. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Eau Nude also comes in Eau De Parfum rather than toilette, meaning that it lasts longer on the skin that most high-street fragrances. I picked up my 30ml bottle for £7.50 (a whopping £40 cheaper than 35ml of Coco) but it's available in a range of sizes. I think the packaging is super pretty too and looks lovely sat on my dressing table!

If you love Coco Mademoiselle yet would prefer to try something slightly easier on their bank balance, go and buy this! I promise you won't disappointed x
