As a big fan of another of Lidl’s perfume offerings (read my review of Lidl’s Suddenly Madame Glamour, a dupe for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle) I had to pick up a bottle of their Suddenly Diamonds when I saw it on the shelves for £3.99.
Lidl Suddenly Diamonds Perfume Review
Said to be a dupe for Boss Orange by Hugo Boss, it has top notes of orange blossom which give it a zingy, light fragrance that evolves through the base notes to something more subtle and less sweet with light vanilla and sandalwood. Not myself owning Boss Orange I nipped to my local boots to give it at sniff and it is very similar, practically indistinguishable but the Hugo Boss understandably does last longer on my skin considering the RRP of £30 per 30ml of EDT.

This fragrance lasts around 4-5 hours on my skin and didn’t cause any reactions. The scent develops nicely through the day with the citrus notes fading after 2 hours and the base notes coming through stronger from there. My driving instructor asked me which fragrance I was wearing and when I told her it was from Lidl she wouldn’t believe me!

The packaging, whilst nothing to go wild in the aisles about, is much sleeker in comparison to their previous offering with the likes of Suddenly Madame Glamour, with a sturdier lid and more pleasing shape. This is definitely a sling-it-in-your-bag affair and works well when used almost like a body spray.
You can pick up 50ml of the Eau de Parfum for £3.99, or less when it is on offer – so keep your eyes peeled!
