Love Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne, but don’t love the price tag? Same. Here’s a post all about the closest dupe I’ve managed to hunt down. And the best part? It’s under £20!
If you were a reader around Christmas, you might’ve seen me mention this brilliant dupe already. I talked about the Fragrance and Glamour 614 Eau de Parfum in my Top 5 Affordable Fragrances post. Today, I thought we’d delve a little deeper into this little gem.
The Best Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber Cologne Dupe
Fragrance and Glamour is a vegan perfumery based in Southport. They make tons of different dupes of famous fragrances, and this Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber dupe of theirs is so, so close to the original that it’s incredible. They also do Chanel dupes, Dior dupes, and even YSL dupes, to name but a few.
They offer various different size bottles for different prices. I have the 50ml which was £19.99. You can get 2ml for £3.49, 30ml for £14.99, 50ml for £19.99 or 100ml for £26.99.
For the Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne, you’ll be paying £50 for 30ml and £100 for 100ml, so the difference in price is very stark.
Top notes: Jasmine, bergamot & red apple.
Middle notes: Angelica & cucumber.
Base notes: Virginia cedar, beeswax, vanilla & musk.
How similar is it?
Very! You’d be hard pushed to notice the difference. I can only note a slight bit of extra ‘sharpness’ to this dupe, if that makes sense? I think it’s because the bergamot is a little less prevalent than it is in the original. It’s a tiny bit (and I mean tiny) more musky, I feel.
Packaging-wise, the bottle to this Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne dupe is glass, just like the original. The lid is plastic though, instead of metal, which does make it look a little cheaper. But, then again, it is much cheaper than the original, so I don’t think we can really complain too much about that, can we?
Other than that, it’s pretty much a dead ringer for the original. I get compliments on it, plus I get to hold on to some more cash.
All in all, if you’re looking for a much more affordable alternative to the Jo Malone Earl Grey & Cucumber cologne, this dupe is fantastic.
