‘It’s fresh and clean smelling.’

Do you love the smell of Baccarat Rouge 540 but want a perfume that is a bit softer and doesn’t break the bank?

Jess, a retail manager for the pharmacy chain Chemist Warehouse, promises she has the ultimate solution.

In a video shared to TikTok, Jess said the Bella Vita Paradiso perfume from Guess ($59.99) is a cheaper and “less intense” version of the cult favourite Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge 540.

The high-end fragrance comes in three different sizes — 35mL ($244), 70mL ($399) and 200mL ($759).

“If you love Baccarat Rouge but you want something a little bit softer, you need to try the new Guess fragrance,” Jess said in a video.

“Guess Bella Vita Paradiso is a very seductive scent that gives a mysterious vibe.

“You have some sweetness from pear blossom and red fruits, some white florals to keep it nice and soft, and your classic musk, amber and patchouli notes to give it depth.”

Jess believes this perfume is an ideal dupe for Baccarat Rouge — and even better, it’s currently on sale for $59.99, originally $83.

Her video has received more than 6,000 views and commenters are loving it.

“I randomly bought this. It’s fresh and clean smelling,” one wrote.

“Club de Nuit Untold is also another dupe for Baccarat Rouge,” another added.

“Also very strong and lasts so long.”

A third said: “I’m a big fan of the Guess fragrances. I think they are very underrated”.

The retail manager frequently shares her Chemist Warehouse favourites as well as beauty recommendations, tips and tricks, including an item she uses to hide blemishes.

“I’m going to tell you guys something I haven’t spoken about. It’s about my skincare and it can tend to be sensitive,” she said.

Chemist Warehouse employee shares the $32 item she used to cover up her blemishes.

Jess noticed her blemishes were disguised after using L’Oreal Paris Infallible More Than Concealer, which normally retails for $31.99.

“The product has given me this coverage, it’s incredible,” she said.

The photos were taken two hours apart to show viewers how she was able to cover up her redness using the product.

The first image shows redness under Jess’ eyes, whereas the second image shows a much smoother complexion.

“Obviously you have to use your correct shade but look at that,” she said.

“I couldn’t believe it, I’ve never found a product that I can cover it up with, because it hurts, or it goes dry and flaky.”

“So, if you’re looking for a concealer that really covers up imperfections — she’s your girl.”

Jess’s video had more than 6,000 views and beauty lovers praised her recommendation.

“I’m excited to try, thank you,” said one.

“Such a great concealer, your makeup looks flawless,” added another.
