If there's one bottle any luxury fragrance lover is sure to have on their shelf, it's the signature Chloé perfume that has developed a cult following the world over.
The unbelievably fresh notes of the globally-favored perfume are instantly recognizable to lovers of the spray and the gorgeously sophisticated bottle is a status symbol in its own right.
But while the clean, flowery scent is undeniably heavenly, a big bottle of the good stuff isn’t a frivolous purchase for most.
If, like a swipe of the best mascara, a mandatory spritz of this has become a prerequisite for leaving the house (and with this warm floral-cedar blend how could it not be), then staying stocked up on the treasured essential isn’t entirely bank account-friendly.
Just like we had to find a Chanel No 5 dupe for the cult perfume to save money, we've done the same with this Chloe icon. High-street store Zara is here with their outstandingly similar dupe that will set you back a fraction of the price.
Generally known as a high-street fashionista hub thanks to its affordable takes on the season's most recent catwalk looks, Zara offers shoppers the chance to keep their wardrobes on-trend for a fraction of the designer prices.
So it's no surprise that their Powdery Magnolia fragrance is a perfect match for the luxury Chloé perfume.
However, a 100ml bottle of Zara's Powdery Magnolia perfume costs a mere £15.99 - that's a £73 saving on the 75ml bottle of Chloé's eau de parfum.
And fans of the scent have even flooded social media with tales of its uncanny resemblance.

Of course, being an eau de toilette, the Zara perfume won't linger quite as long as the Chloé original - but at such a cheap price a few extra spritzes throughout the day definitely won't break the bank.
And it's not just Zara who are offering an affordable alternative.
With their talent for home fragrance that has given us some of the best scented candles in our lives, it's no surprise that luxury high-street staple The White Company offers their own line that also bears a striking similarity to the designer favorite.
Their Blanc range blends notes of pure white geranium and bright juniper berry for a fresh eau de toilette that resembles the Chloé perfume.
And if you're as obsessed with the scent as we are, they also offer homeware and skincare alternatives, with a candle, diffuser, hand wash, hand cream and body cream available in the addictive blend.
The signature Chloé perfume does still have our heart, but at such a fraction of the price there's no harm in saving that for special occasions and going for the Zara or The White Company options for daily wear.
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
