Primark's new £8 'Aladdin' perfume smells exactly like £72 designer Alien, mums claim 

Primark is somewhat of a haven in the UK. From students looking for a shirt for the upcoming 'traffic light' night out, to families just looking for a bargain - Primark (lovingly dubbed, Primarni) has something for everyone, and a good price too!

And for Disney fans, Primark really is a must-visit destination. From clothes to homeware, Primark has a HUGE range of Disney affiliated merch, all at a fraction of the costs you can expect to find in official Disney stores.

Check out the trailer to Disney's live-action Aladdin:

And now, Primark has added a new range of Disney perfumes to their offering - with one, in particular, causing quite the stir online.

Shoppers are raving about Primark's new £8 perfume from the Disney's Aladdin range, as they claim is smells identical to the designer Thierry Mugler’s iconic Alien scent, which RRPs in stores for £72.50.

Yes, for nine-times less and with just 10ml fewer in the bottle, you could smell like a high-end celeb, when really you're smothered in Agrabah's finest musk for street-rats - Making My Own Magic, eau de parfum.

Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Couponing & Bargains, run by money-saving mum Holly Smith, one woman shared her bargain buy, writing:

"Primark 100ml perfume… Disney Aladdin £8 smells exactly the same as Alien!! Now a mum of 2 who wears Aladdin."

Others were quick to confirm the woman's findings, with another typing:

"Thank you to the person who posted about Primark Aladdin perfume smelling like Alien.

"Sprayed a sample in the shop & it’s still smelling strong hour half later so I’ve brought it- the perfume smells better than the spray but both are."
