Scent Dupes with other etailers

United States
February 7, 2007 8:53pm CST
Alright. I want to know these. I have some specifics I'd like to find, but please post any and all. The ones I want: Honey Bee Big Blue Sonic Death Monkey Blue Skies Jungle Olive Branch Preferably, bath bombs. I'd love to find a place that sells honey bee and big blue dupes cheaper, and to have the others in bath bombs would be amazing. Or if you know a BPAL (or something) dupe, I could use the perfume to make bath bombs.

I'll second you on the champagne snow showers. If I ever find a dupe of it, I will be sure to let you know.

Someone in another thread here said there was a CSS scent dupe... at beadedhemp, I think? Not sure, as I don't like CSS that much so I didn't pay attention. It might be the discon thread.

Ooh, right, I think I saw that! I think it was on my thread about your favourite must-have items from Lush! Note to self- must find out what that CSS dupe is called, I bet it's heavenly!

I've never actually tried it, but I hear Honey Bath from Bathed & Infused smells very close to Honey Bee/HIWTK.

I haven't found a bunch, but here are some BPAL scents that are very similar to LUSH scents (though not exact matches): Maiden--spicy carnation that is almost an exact match to Potion (it's a little greener, but I like that!) Dana O'Shee--a lot like Snowcake, but a bit more almondy Neptune--I think this smells exactly like Aqua Marina. I'm sure there are more, but these are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Dupe of Potion!?! Awesome! I hate having to get potion lotion all the way from the UK.

Does anyone know, which smells more like potion: Skindecent's pink carnation body butter, or Skindazzles' spicy carnation whipped body frosting? I haven't tried either etailer yet, and am trying to decide which to order from... but maybe I'll start a new thread for that so I can see what people think.

I had a similar question. It seems like Villianess soap has a carnation/rose scent that seems like it might be close to potion. Has anyone tried it?

You might try Wilde Ivy's HoneyBee Good. It's not an exact match, but it's a really good substitute as far as I'm concerned.

Gudonya on etsy.com has a pretty descent dupe of Karma for anyone who likes Karma.

I think that Burt's Bees' Honey and Shea Butter body butter smells a lot like HIWTK, but in thick lotion form. I use it most mornings since I've run out of Dream Cream. It's really grown on me though, and the light scent stays with you much of the day.

Ava-Luxe's Red Tara is similar to Blue Skies and very complimentary. It is a bit woodier than BS though, and not as spicy.

On me at least, I have found that Bpal's "Eat me" smells like the Comforter/YSTW. "Eat me" is a cake and currant scent. But on me, more of the currant comes through.

I am STILL looking for a flying fox dupe. I can't seem to find one ANYWHERE.
