Going out on a limb here - these products are better than the aerosol knockoffs of Tommy girl I grew up with, (seriously, TG costs twenty dollars - do you really need it cheaper?) but they're still pretty bad.
The top notes are nearly identical but they veer off into weirdness pretty quickly. I'd say these are popular because they are sweeter and less complicated than the originals. I tried the "Impression of Opium" and it smells nothing like the real thing, a glorious, bombastic intense. It was a sad, mopey eau de toilette in a nursing home version. Depressing, to say the least.
Knowing this, are you really saving money? White Diamonds and Cool Water are sold in the same pharmacy for only ten or twenty dollars more - miniatures are are a great way to sample the 'real thing" and have many fragrances.You only go through a spray bottle that size if you wear it without fail every day for a year more. What did they tell me in kindergarten? Oh yes - "A little dab will do you."

I bought the Viva La Juicy one. OK, there were only two left at Walgreen's and I snatched up both of them. I wear the original fragrance & I'm down to the tiniest specks in the bottom of the bottle. I spritzed the In Style tester version on my wrist last week & wore it all afternoon just to make sure I liked it. DUH!! It was great and spot on for the original.

I bought the acqua di gio and the one and they both smell amazing. granted ive never heard of acqua di gio but it smells really nice. i have been wanting the one forever but didnt want to pay that much for a fragrance so this worked out perfectly i got them 2 for 12 at walgreens so if ur thinking of trying them give them a shot. walgreens also has samples of each which is great. im thinking of going back to get be delicious it smelled yummy

I bought one of these at walgreens too, I tried the sensuous (EL) and it really seems to be close to the original. I have the original so I decided i would try something different.I sniffed the coco madmoiselle one that they had and found that it didnt smell anything like the original which i own, then i tried "The One" (DG) which i ended up buying because when i spritzed it on it smelled pretty good. I havent smelled the original to this but didnt really care if it smelled the same since i just like how it smells anyway. The only issue I have with it is that it only lasts like 2 hours, then I have to reapply (liberally). I want to buy the angel as i see on there that it is getting great reviews!

Found these at my local Walgreen's BOGOF, so I purchase the Angel, Cashmere Mist, Opium and Light Blue.
My favorites in this order are: 1) C. Mist - smells spot-on, last ALL day LOVE! 2) Opium - A pretty good dupe, in fact I may like this better the the original, not as strong but last a long time (3) Angel - not exactly like the original, it does not have as much depth nor does it have the staying power but htis actually might appeal to some more than the original version. (4) Light Blue - Eh, it is ok not an exact dupe, a little cloying but overall not bad.
I would say that if you can find these BOGO, they are an excellent value, the real glass bottle is nice too and these are 3.4 oz so the product should last a while.

I bought the Juicy Couture Couture Couture dupe as well as the original Juicy Couture. I actually really like the scent of the Couture Couture, it smells slightly musky but feminine and sophisticated. I tried the actual Juicy fragrance and I actually like this better, definitely will be trying more from this line :)
Another good thing about it is they have testers in stores, and occasionally goes on buy one get one free so it's even cheaper

This line is great. I have Angel, Chanel #5, Opium, Beautiful, and Coco Mademoiselle. I find them to be very similar to the original, and in some cases, I like them better. Opium and Angel are a bit lighter and more wearable making them less offensive to people who are sensitive to strong scents. It's a cheap way to try out these scents before plunking down the big bucks for the originals. I am waiting for the bogo sale to try Euphoria and Sensuous. The packaging is boring, but what do you expect for 12 bucks for a huge amount? Will definitely rebuy!

I have two scents in this line - the version of "Angel" and the version of SJP "Lovely," which appears to have been discontinued and which I bought for a song on markdown at Walgreens. Both smell great on me, and I'm very pleased with them....THEN I found out that InStyle now has new versions of EL "Sensuous" and CK "Euphoria," which happen to be two of my three favorite fragrances....I've not tried the Instyle version of "Euphoria" yet but its rendition of "Sensuous" is fantastic. I mean NUCLEAR great, must-have, huge money-saver! Can't wait for the next BOGO sale at Walgreens. This knockoff line is the best I've ever tried - I've not sampled their version of CK "Obsession," which is my fave and is very, very hard to duplicate (I can always tell a knockoff of that one, for some reason), but overall this line just flat ROCKS. Kudos to Walgreens for carrying this quality line of knockoffs!!

I purchased the Angel knock off and LOVE IT!!! It is the closest knock off of Angel I have found....without breaking my bank either. My fiance and I were in Macy's one day trying different fragrances in the Men's and Women's Depts..... he ended up buying Aqua Di Gio and I contemplated spending the $75.00 for the initial bottle of Angel......but I couldn't bring myself to waste that much money for such a small bottle, despite the fact it was refillable. This is a great alternative!!!! No way am I spending the $75.00 when I can get this for $14.00 at Walgreens!! I will be trying other scents now too!! And if I can catch a BOGO sale and get 2 for one, I will be very happy!!! I've gotten a lot of compliments on this and everyone thinks it is the real Angel on me. :)
