Fragrance at Primark

Polka Fragrance - Primark £2 

I've not ventured into Primark for absolutely ages and when I went in last weekend, I couldn't believe how much it had changed! 

The Manchester Primark now has a Costa coffee, a massive beauty section and you can even get your eyebrows threaded! 

I had a good little gander around the beauty section, picking up the odd bit here and there but the thing I was the most impressed with was this little rollerball fragrance - Polka. 

Now, I'm not pointing any fingers, but I have a sneaky suspicion that Primark my have taken inspiration from some popular fragrances when it comes to the names & packaging of their fragrances, but why spend £40 on a 30ml bottle when you can spend £2 for something just as nice? 

I've heard that although this clearly looks like Marc Daisy Dot, it's doesn't actually smell the same, and that its actually similar to Lady Million by Paco Rabanne. I've not tried either of these, so can't comment, but I know that this scent hits all the right spots for me. 

I find it just the right amount of girly, with more of a sexy night time scent to it. It lingers nicely on the skin for a good few hours and doesn't fade away to leave a nasty, granny scent like some cheaper fragrances do. There's no way I could tell between this and a £40 perfume.

Its a rollerball too, which is just perfect! I don't know why, but rollerball perfumes encourage me to apply loads more, and it's the perfect size for my handbag. 

I think I'll be heading to Primark to pick up a couple more of these handy scents!

Have you tried any of the Primark beauty range? What should I pick up next time I pop in? 


  1. I love primark perfumes and my post on the 'He Loves Me' eau de toilette is one of my most popular. I need to check this one out as well!!xx

  2. I tried one of these one when my friend bought it, and it smells so nice! I'd prefer a pump on it, but that's just me! Tania xx
