ok, here's the deal, these gorgeous people at ET know what they're doing....and I mean, they do...
I bought bunchof their stuff and been more than pleased with it...the only con I see is the fact that they haven't updated their page (which looks pretty poor considering the quality of stuff they're making), and it is impossible to see which scents are in fact Designer duplicates....
the other thing-well,you really don't know whether you're gonna like the scent or not...if you choose designer dupe-it is almost certain that you'll be very pleased...now, I've had some blind orders and here's my review...
've Ibought 8 time 8 ml. body mists which are pretty strong, so try not to over do....I know american people crave for sweeter stuff and that is the main ''problem'' here...let's begin
FATAMORGANA- a very strange but comfy smell of cereal, myrrh,musk (to me it smells like a spinoff of Sticky cake which I adore)-very long lasting,kinda oriental/fuity and dark....good
STICKY CAKE- exact CdG Sticky cake dupe, amazing,strange and alluring smell of white Karbofix glue, industrial smell with some milky/ambery accords-love it
SHEER SEDUCTION- sweet flowery concoction,smells like hibiscus and banana leaf- bad
DRAGON'S BLOOD- wonderful oriental,sticky mixture of resinoids, Nag Champa, pure oriental heaven
BOTRYTIS- a typical ambery perfume which smells divine on a man's skin...
BLACK KASHMERE- smells exactly like D.Karan BC
ROSE JELLY (Lush Rose jam dupe)- ok, this smells awfully sweet, like honeyed rose in alcohol...on me it turns very ruberry argh, not a perfume, but I guess lovers of sweets will enjoy it..
WHITE WITCH- one of the best ET scents...great milky,oriental, spicy mixture of resins....love
SANDALWOOD ROSE- omg, this is gross,it is sandalwood and it is rose, but smells like bathroom freshener....
PATCHOULY RASPBERRY-same thing-awfuly combined raspberry with very weak patchouly-yuck
I had Flowerbomb-amazing, great....Chinatown by Bond No 9-also amazing.....Alkmaar-omg, it is the same thing as Lush Alkmaar soap.....
but what I absolutely appreciate and that's just one of the reasons to keep ordering from these amazing people is the fact taht they care....THEY CARE!!with every order you'll get a free fullsized product (I've got Prada Candy perfumed shea stick...great stuff), personaly written card of appreciation (thank you dear Barbara)...and some cute candies wrapped with sweet little butterfly flakes in the package.....
If you ever consider ordering, you won't be dissappointed because thing is you'll probably love at least one thing that you receive, and if that happens, you'll cherish that stuff forever....
extremely long lasting, and extremely deterioration free....I've had some fluffy stuff for 7 years!!!as good as the day I received it!<3<3<3<3!
EDIT: got my new order Dragon's blood edp and Tolu edp....the first one is even better than the body mist version, and Tolu....is pure balmy amber...veery weird and definitely not for me...

I want to keep this business my secret, it is THAT good :)
Age: 36-43 Skin: Very Dry, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
ET's version of Miss Dior Cherie is very lovely and feminine without being too sweet or cloying or heady. I tried both old and new ones and when wearing perfume I reach out for those most often. I have sniffed the original fragrance only once and for my opinion it is sweeter, maybe more sugary?
I don't notice the patchouli which I think is mentioned on the original note description but personally a good thing as I don't like it that much.
I have this scent in Body Mist and in Body Lotion, both last pretty well on skin, will probaply buy again when I run out.

I tried these in the jojoba oil formulation unless otherwise stated:
Arabie dupe - very like the original, but a bit more citrus-y on dry down. Still gorgeous
Black Amber Musk- Tried the dry oil. The amber went sour on me (Not unusual for my skin)
Black Vetyver Cafe- Tried in solid scent. Nice simple unisex of woody incense.
Blue Sugar type - sweet bright and fruity, dries down to plain vanilla. Pleasant.
Botrytis dupe - An autumn scent, but perfume-y. I prefer gourmands in autumn, I guess.
Fata Morgana - bright lemon grass, woody notes. Very bright and herby.
Matin Calin- Exact to the original but lasts way longer
Pomegranite Noir - Pomegranite but too much patchouli for me
Sexy Graffitti - Musky melon. A nice summer scent, but fairly youthful
Sticky Cake dupe- My favorite. It's close enough to the original to replace it for me and I can actually afford this. Love this one.
Tolu type-Ormonde Jayne dupe. It has the same feeling as the original without being like the original. Still, I like it rather a lot. It's brighter and starts very sharp, but the dry down is lovely and complex.
Un Bois Vanille-Serge Lutens dupe. Close enough to the original to make me scrub. They share a sandal/vanilla combo that really bothers me.
Believe type - Brittany Spears dupe. Bright, frutiy and youthful. Nice but not my thing. The oil lasts forever.
Infusion de Iris dupe - Very close, and this is my favorite perfume these days in the original. ET dupe works great in soaps.
Purple Cow-Vanilla violet that is edible good. Love this one.
Addict type - fruitier than I expected, but a good summer scent
Ambre del Nepal type - vanilla-y amber. Nice, but not special.
Eau de Sud dupe - in liquid shea. Lovely bright herbal scent, smells a bit like sunlight might.
Sweet Grass ET - Lovely sweet grassy smell with a touch of florals. Gorgeous in the soap with the little mouse. Too lovely to use.
oh, man, now I gotta go order more stuff. I love playing in this store!

Adding my 2cents:
Pixie Dust (my fave so far): Green and fresh, with aloe, greens and citrus. Reminds me of Vitabath Spring Green. Sort of grapefruit on me. Nice.
Karma: I'm on the fence about this one. I love LUSH Karma soap, and the soap in ET Karma smells *sort of* like it, but the Butter Bar in ET Karma has that "head shoppy" patchouli smell, cheap and musty instead of sharp and bright. Not enough orange to make it work, IMO. Still, I ordered a Butter Bar in Sweet Orange to blend with it in hopes I can recreate LUSH Karma without paying LUSH's outrageously high prices. ETA: The addition of Sweet Orange to ET's version of Karma definitely helps!
Honeysuckle: I got a nice sample of this (Barbara includes generous samples with each order!) and while it is a beautiful honeysuckle floral, it just isn't for me.
Ruby Red Grapefruit: this one smells like LaffyTaffy, no kidding.
Sweet Orange: a nice citrus aroma, and definitely SWEET! not at all like neroli, which is bitter.

(all tried as dry oil mists)
Bluebell vanilla- first time really smelling this one, nice and creamy vanilla, definitely realistic, a new fave?
pumpkin crunch cake- wooonderful spicy but cakey scent! might even add some vanilla to it if I get it in a cream!
chocolate fudge icing- soo good!!!!
creamy custard-not for me, was hoping for more of a pudding scent. A little burnt smelling, but I still smell sweet cream
chocolate duge cake - reordered fave, cakier that fudge icing, but equally good
sweet dreams - my only fave non foody scent! creamy vanilla and white spice, drool worthy!
buttery vanilla & creme brulle blend - hmm, undecided. the creme part is great but the vanilla smells plasticky. might keep.
angel food cake - perfect, just like all angel food cake scents
orange juice cake: yup, this is great! just like BB's
irish mocha - reorder, my fave as always!
vanilla wafer - okay, the best wafer scent ever, no popcorn/cornchip scent!!
mago lassi - I guess I can't do many fruit scents, I smell 'green; in this too! nice mango with a crisp green note to me, undecided
