Many people disagree with “knockoff” or “inspired” products. Take “inspired” perfume for example, a fragrance is created for the purpose of imitating an already existing fragrance. But unlike fakes, knockoffs are legal and don’t pretend to be the actual original fragrance. For example, The Body Fantasies collection includes scents like Silver Linings, inspired by Victoria’s Secret Heavenly. The BOD line includes Midnight Reign, a scent inspired by Aqua di Gio, America’s #1 selling men’s fragrance. For frugal fragrance lovers the Designer Imposter’s line offers an affordable alternative for fans of classics like Obsession by Calvin Klein, Delicious by DKNY and Dolce Gabbana Light Blue.
I’m not saying they’re in the same league as the real thing but priced under $10, these steals are hard to resist when compared to $50 or more per fragrance.
