DELINA DUPES

Delina and its flankers by Perfums de Marly are always on most perfume lovers' "Top 10" lists, and many women choose it as a wedding day perfume. Delina smells like elegance; think delicate pearls, satin and lace nightie set, and powdery pink roses - that's Delina.


There are tons of videos on YouTube that claim to have found dupes for this popular perfume however, only one of the perfumes below is sometimes referenced.


Parfums de Marly Delina
Sillage: 8/10

Delina retails for £230 /$355 for a 75ml bottle. This is relatively pricey but, for a niche perfume, it's pretty average. Below is a list of the dupes I have found, and most of them are way cheaper than the original.

NB: The listed prices are retail prices for the UK and USA, not direct conversions.



1. Initio Parfums Pivés - Atomic Rose


Personally, Delina just doesn't do it for me ( I prefer Delina Exclusif), but Atomic Rose is to me, everything Delina isn't; the blend is just exquisite! Atomic Rose has an edge to it that gives this very feminine scent, a "boss-lady" angle. The notes in Atomic Rose are different to those in Delina, but the similarity is undeniable and it's always referenced by YouTubers as a good dupe.

2. Issey Miyake - L'Eau D'Issey Rose & Rose


I was at the airport in Barbados when I discovered this dupe. As usual, I was perfume sniffing, hoping to discover (or rediscover, as the case may be) something nice, and I got Delina at first sniff. Again, other than rose and cashmere, the notes are different, but the similarity is uncanny. Although litchi is not officially listed as a note in this, I and others can smell it in there, which might be the reason that this blend is so Delina-esque.

3. Lataffa Perfumes - Bade'e Al Oud Amethyst


This is actually more of an Atomic Rose dupe but, although it's incredibly similar, Oud Amethyst doesn't smell as refined and opulent as Delina or Atomic Rose; something about it is much more synthetic. If the softness of Delina is what you appreciate, then this may not be for you, as you lose that with the presence of the harsh oud used in this, however, if a beast-mode Delina is what you are looking for, then this can definitely be it. The packaging is very similar to Atomic Rose's, but its price is literally less than 10% of it! I got my Oud Amethyst for £15!
