If you’re searching for a new summer fragrance, the new Provenance perfume collection created by M&S has holidays (and heatwaves) written all over it. From sun-drenched Amongst The Orange Groves to the Greek island-inspired Santorini Days, the four new sunny eau de parfums are bound to have you dreaming of your next getaway in a single spritz… but the best part? At just £15, the M&S Provenance perfume collection is also a much more affordable dupe of Armani Privé which retails for a whopping £138.
Not even a tenth of the price of the luxury brand’s premium perfume range, the M&S Provenance collection makes for a very purse-friendly alternative to the luxury eau de toilette, comprising four sun-filled fragrances to choose from…
Bearing resemblance to Armani’s Privé perfume bottles, M&S’ new summer scents are also housed in a sleek, sophisticated bottle with a distinctive circular top. The ingredients and notes also share some similarities, too. For instance, the Amongst The Orange Groves fragrance blends top notes of citrus with orange blossom, jasmine and neroli and has a musk base, meanwhile, Armani’s Orangerie Venise Eau De Toilette combines citrus notes of Bergamot with Petitgrain and floral neroli and has a woody base.
Much like the Armani fragrances, which are said to embody scents from around the world, the dupe perfume collection from M&S has taken inspiration from far-flung destinations too—think beach-inspired coconut and sea salt from The Under The Palm Trees fragrance and aromatic scents of olive and zesty Bergamot found in Santorini Days. The vegan fragrances also all harness natural ingredients, most of which are 80% naturally derived.
In fact, it’s clear that sustainability has been front and centre of this collection from the offset. The bottle is 100% recyclable and the naturally-derived alcohol base is renewable and carbon neutral. The carton has also been created using Bagasse, a sustainable fibre made of 95% sugarcane by-product and 5% linen and hemp, meaning it uses less energy compared to standard card and is also 100% recyclable. So, if you’re looking for a fragrance that’s kind to the planet and to your skin, look no further.
