Jo Malone fans went crazy over Primark’s Private Collection, launched last August 2017. Why? Bloggers and Beauty Editors, and fragrance aficionados everywhere said that the high street retailer’s line of fragrances is a complete dupe for Jo Malone! And now they’ve done it again… with the Oud Collection. A set of 4 new perfumes that highly resemble scents from Jo Malone’s Cologne Intense range.
A Jo Malone fragrance will typically set you back £44 to £88. But with prices of these new perfumes being just £6, Primark’s Oud Collection is up to 15 times less than the coveted Jo Malone scents.
