Posting in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, one shopper revealed that she’s been a loyal D&G perfume wearer for years.
That is until she stumbled upon the £4.99 version in Lidl and will never look back.
She wrote: “Iv used the original DG light blue perfume for years. I got this today in Lidl £4.99 and it smells exactly the same and lasts all day. Love it.”
And it seems she’s not the only one as another shared: “I also have this & it’s lovely. Just like D&G at a fraction of the price.”
