Luxury Perfumes at a Fraction of the Cost? Reviewing Fruity Almond- Dossier Perfumes
When I saw that the dossier Fruity Almond was available through PrismPop, I had to grab it! The fragrance that it is a dupe for (Carolina Herrera - Good Girl Eau de Parfum) has been at the top of my list of splurge items to buy when I have a few extra dollars in my budget!
If you’ve never heard of dossier, let me give you a little introduction! Dossier creates fragrances inspired by high demand designer brands. They’re able to provide more affordable perfume and cologne options by removing the costs of branding and packaging. They are high quality and luxury inspired, just at a price that’s more reachable for your average person. These perfumes and colognes range in price from $29 to $49, but are discounted at 10-20% if you buy multiple at the same time. The fragrances these are dupes for easily cost $80-150+. You also get a lot of perfume (volume wise) with dossier, so this is a great option to make your dollar last longer!
So how good of a dupe is it??
The main differences between fruity almond and good girl are the locations of the fragrance notes. The top fragrance notes for Good Girl are sambac jasmine and tuberose crystal. We see these floral scents more in the middle notes of fruity almond, which are orris (related to iris), orange blossom, and tuberose. The top notes of fruity almond are almond and peach, which matched Good Girl’s middle note of velvet almond. The base notes are nearly identical: Good Girl has tonka bean, cocoa, and coffee bean whereas fruity almond is tonka bean, vanilla, and cocoa.
Overall, I don’t notice the difference between jasmine in Good Girl and orris and orange blossom in fruity almond - I think that’s a good swap to make the fragrance affordable! I do think fruity almond does come off a little sweeter compared to Good Girl’s more floral but well rounded scent. I think the peach and lack of coffee bean (not necessarily bitter but more… earthy? dark? warm? I’m not sure of the right term) is the main reason for the slight sweetness in fruity almond!
I love the sleek packaging design and the magnetic lid to close is everything!! It’s supposed to be fragrances without all the bells and whistles, but this doesn’t come off as cheap at all!
