I bought this as I really love Clinique Aromatics perfume. I wasn’t disappointed. It smells exactly like the Clinique perfume and lasts for a long time. I will buy it again

I am constantly asked what perfume I am wearing when I have this on ,it really is lovely and lasts well!

I got my daughter to but this one and my partner to buy the real thing for me for christmas. Never tried Milton before so thought I would give it a go. They are both as great as each other and I can now afford to spray the Milton one before work and the real one for when I go out for the night. Perfect copy, will definitely buy again, and I'm now looking to buy other different ones just because I can afford too!

Brilliant just like the real thing, ideal for work

You could be mistaken to think this is the original Aromatics, and that is why Milton Lloyd is worth its weight in gold. Lasts all day with subtle traces the day after wearing.

This is so like the real thing, it lasts and lasts and I spray in the bathroom sometimes and in the house. Absolutely the real deal. Very good for the price.

I am in love with this perfume it's such a sweet fruity floral scent if you're into those kind of fragrances go for it. It last for ages and ages it has good silage too for £3-£5 you really can not go wrong here most girls will like this perfume if they like sweet fruity perfumes great for a younger crowd too I love it and i'm 15 but don't get me wrong the the older crowd like it too, I asked my older sister about this one and she loved she wants to buy one for herself now so definitely try it wether it's similar to jimmy choo i'm not entirely sure as i have not tried that one.

This scent is gorgeous, mellow and musky. It’s my fave of all the Milton Lloyd’s. Lasts all day as well. I have 4 bottles of it!

very nice long lasting fragrance, so good i bought 3 excellent.....


Schloesy (29 Aug 2016)

Comments:
Quite strong when you first apply, but after 5 minutes it smells so much like A*men. It also does not fade away quick like others ive tried. My wife says she can pure smell it when ironing my shirts.


Tall Dark and Handsome (17 Oct 2015)

Comments:
For something that costs about one tenth of the original, yes, I said one tenth, this is as perfect a 'replica' as it is possible to get. I get it from my wholesaler for under £2 but expect to pay about a fiver at retail prices. You won't regret it for a single second.

Never smelt the original 1888 by Cerutti - stumbled across this cheapy - all I can say is "WOW this is great!" Will be buying a big supply so I never run out....better than most of the expensive perfumes I have had over the years with only a few exceptions.


I LOVE IT (6 Oct 2017)

Comments:
OMG THIS IS CERUTTI 1888 OR U WOULD THINK IT IS OBVIOUSLY DOSENT LAST AS LONG BUT YOU CAN AFORD TO TOP IT UP AT THIS PRICE, I SO HOPE I CAN FIND A GHOST SERENITY REPLACEMENT


Roxanne (27 Jan 2017)

great fragrance smells same if not better lasting than YSL kuros


Sir Smell-A-Lot (7 May 2018)

Comments:
This a clone of old-school Kouros. It has an animalic (some would say dirty) opening. It dries down to a clean and soapy scent, and becomes indistinguishable from the Kuoros available in the stores today. Longevity is an impressive 12 hours. It projects for about 3 hours or so and has a strong spillage. You only need 3 quick sprays of this (careful with the Milton Lloyd sprayer). You can pick this up for less than €5 if you shop around. This is must buy for Kuoros fans everywhere.

This is amazing!! I bought Kouros as a teenager. This is as close and long lasting as you gonna get without spending £35.

I have both this and the original. You cannot tell the difference between them. Milton Lloyd are some of the best copies you can get. Excellent.Five stars.

Almost a dead-on dupe for Flowerbomb, with fantastic sillage, and lasts a good 6 hours too.

Just found this page, I buy 5 every time, when I 1st got this I had compliments all day women and Men I did not know what it was like but have to agree ADG I empty a whole bottle into a jar and let the alcohol evaporate halfway and then put into another bottle, its super nice then ( takes about 3 days but worth the little effort as it lasts all day, once had someone grab my arm in Tesco to ask me what I was wearing random, £1.99 Savers, just found another shop hat sells others fantastic price, just have to go over the top with it to keep it going all day. spray it back of the knees, nape of neck and lower back then put your shirt on :)


Tall Dark and Handsome (1 May 2016)

Comments:
Just bought this at Savers discount stores for £1.99 I must say that it is a very faithful replica of Acqua di Gio by Armani. For the money you are being asked to spend you simply can't complain. Five stars.

PRESS REVIEW

Telegraph.co.uk (10 Oct 2012)

At first, when I sprayed my wrist, the X-Bolt was disappointingly innocuous. I was secretly hoping for some violent whiff of slurry to confirm my hunch that this was all a clever PR stunt.

But no, this was definitely a proper eau de toilette - and one determined not to offend.

Initially, the only scent I could detect was old-fashioned sweet shop: bonbons and barley sugar. Not entirely unpleasant. And then, the undertones started to seep into my nostrils. Frangipani and pears, a sort of poire clafoutis; then came vanilla, not quite the heady scent of Madagascan pods, slightly more the manufactured vanilla you get in an Ambi Pur plug-in air freshener; finally, an aroma of wood, which at a stretch might pass for sandalwood.

BLOGGER REVIEW

Bonkers about Perfume (23 Sep 2012)

Hey, I have to say that once again I am very impressed. I don't know exactly what notes I am smelling, other than a vague luminously woody ambery quality and a slightly herbal facet, but I do detect a marked resemblance. The main difference seems to be that when you first spray Hugo Boss, it is soft and refined from the off (as men's designer scents go), whereas the Lidl scent is a little brash at the outset, but quickly settles down.
