Now that we're off Zoom and back into the real world, we all want to be looking and feeling our best.

From investing in a trendy autumn wardrobe additions to finding a fresh new scent, we've all been searching for a few new purchases. 

Don't want to spend a small fortune? We've found a brilliant new perfume that is a lot more affordable that it looks, and according to reviews, smells too.

The Ladies' Peony Eau De Parfum from Aldi has been raved about by shoppers for its luxurious scent, with many touting it as the perfect handbag accessory. 

Here's why you'll want to snap it up while it's still in stock...

Why we rate it:

With notes of bergamot, this perfume is the perfect balance between smelling high-end, but costing less than a sandwich and a coffee from Pret. 

The delicate floral peony scent is ideal for both day and night wear, and the bottle can be popped in your handbag so that you're never caught short. 

We are aware you can't smell it through your computer or phone screen, so we scrolled through the reviews to see how customers described it.

"It's a citrus-y smell with a woody background" said one shopper, while another said "deep and dark and left a lovely layer of woody vanilla fragrance, which I can still smell on my skin the following morning".

Others said the hint of bergamot shone through: "Terrific scent: woody with notes of bergamot and what smells like patchouli to me."

Customers also praised the longevity of the scent, many top-rated reviews saying they could still smell it for hours after. 

With a scent that shoppers say "smells luxurious" but is an absolute bargain at £6.99, it's no wonder women are purchasing multiple bottles. 

What the reviews say:

  • "Another smasher from Aldi, beautiful scent. Long lasting, shame they sell out so fast, you think by now Aldi would know the demand for their perfumes and order enough."

  • "This perfume is amazing for the price. I went out with a friend and the first thing she asked was what perfume did I have on, she then went and brought a bottle and I got two more as gifts. It lasts ages and smells like a much more expensive perfume."

  • "For the price this is pretty good. I spritzed it on at 8am today and I can still smell it 3 hours later. It's a citrus-y smell with a woody background. That's the only way I can describe it, and I love it. I've been asked twice this morning what perfume I'm wearing. I'm sorry I didn't buy 2 bottles."

  • "Ordered two more as don’t want to be without this little bottle of gorgeous perfume .. thank you Aldi"
