ET Style's Picks for The Best Perfumes That Smell Like Designer Fragrances: 

La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum by Lancôme will catch your nose every time. It has a powdery and flowery scent that's balanced by a touch of musk that's full-bodied but not overpowering. You can get a similar sweet, floral experience from Zara's Red Vanilla at a fraction of the price. 

There's no doubt Le Labo Santal 33 has reached cult status for its alluring woody, leathery scent. The Maison Louis Marie No.04 is reminiscent of the $192 designer fragrance and saves you over $100. They both share notes of sandalwood and cedarwood, with a touch of spice that could be your new favorite scent.

The famous Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Baccarat Rouge 540 will cost you a pretty penny ($325 to be exact), but luckily Ariana Grande's Cloud Eau de Parfum is described as a way less expensive alternative. Both have an airy sweet, floral scents and warm quality. 

This scent from Ariana Grande will take your perfume game to new heights.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium is one of the most recognizable designer fragrances, thanks to the intoxicating blend of coffee, floral notes of white flowers and vanilla. To match it, we found PB Parfums Belcam Premiere Editions Version Eau de Parfum that is nearly identical to the YSL signature scent with notes of pink peppercorn, coffee, and vanilla. For less than $7 for the 1.7 fl oz bottle, it's hard to resist. 

PB Premiere Editions Eau de Parfum Spray is a warm and spicy, long-lasting fragrance formulated with premium quality oils, free of parabens, phthalates and propylene glycol. The scent has hints pink peppercorn, vanilla and black coffee, perfect for both day or evening wear.

OK, hear us out. We saw on TikTok that there's a Byredo designer scent match in the form of, wait for it, a Febreze air freshener. TikTok user @ohuprettythings says the Febreze Odor-Eliminating Air Freshener in Wood smells like the luxurious fragrance store, like the brand's best-selling woody, aromatic Byredo Mojave Ghost perfume.

The scent experts at TikTok (experts is used loosely, here) have been hard at work in finding the the perfect matching scent for Chanel's famous Chance Eau Tendre fragrance -- and it turns out it comes in the form of Zara's Apple Juice perfume. Both boast refreshing, fruity notes of grapefruit and jasmine of cedar.
