A smell-a-like is a perfume that smells like a designer fragrance but with a different name and packaging, and at a cheaper price. A smell-a-like isn't an exact copy, but often smells very similar.
I tried it today. Once and never again. It smells like polish and screen cleaner mixed with a touch of petrol.This is the first ML I didn't like. It smelt horrible to start with and settled down to a nasty smell. I don't doubt that the original, Ted Lapidus - Lapidus Pour Homme, smells just as bad.
This is spot on with the original Ted Lapidus Pour Homme. You will not be disappointed!
