On a Budget? These Affordable Perfumes Smell Just Like Baccarat Rouge 540

We’re not gatekeeping here.

Last Updated on April 5, 2023

Can’t get the Baccarat Rouge 450 Perfume out of your head? It’s a hard relate relate from me.

The iconic perfume from Maison Francis Kurkdjian and Baccarat was created in celebration of the crystal house’s 250th anniversary. This unisex fragrance combines notes of amber, jasmine and saffron with woody tones of a cedar wood for a scent that not only smells delicious, but lasts too.

Baccarat Rouge 540 has an incredible 374.4 million views on Tiktok at the time of writing. It was dubbed the scent of 2021 and is now one of the best-selling perfumes on the planet.

With so much hype online about the perfume, it’s hard to avoid. Like Chanel No.5, it’s one of the most luxury perfumes on the market with a price tag to match.

As someone used to buying my perfume from Zara, the idea of spending £235 on a bottle pains me. So I’ve done some research and found the best dupes for it instead.

I’m aware of my tendency to become fixated on new products and wear them nonstop until it’s gone within a month or two. My Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil didn’t even last for two months!

Fortunately, Zara, a well-known high-street brand, has gained a reputation for creating perfumes that smell just like designer fragrances. I have consistently turned to them for my fragrance needs, and surprise, surprise, they have a dupe for Baccarat Rouge too!

As much as I want to keep these to myself, I believe they’re worth sharing. These alternatives are strikingly similar to the original, yet available at a fraction of the cost and they last too!

Ariana Grande’s Cloud perfume has long been lauded a dupe for Baccarat Rouge 540. However it’s worth mentioning that it smells a little fruitier than the OG, it’s a lot lighter and it doesn’t last quite as long.

For such an affordable price tag, it’s to be expected. But it’s still worth trying, especially if you’re a fan of the star!
