Shoppers have been sent for a spin after discovering a low-cost candle of a popular scent from an upscale brand.
New Zealand brand Maison and Muse, currently stocked at Woolworths, has created a $25 Tahaa Affair version of Glasshouse Fragrance that costs more than twice the price.
Danica, a fragrance lover from Sydney, shared the discovery online telling followers to ‘run’ to the Woolies to get their hands on the boudoir before they were all snapped.
Danica was shocked at how similar the Maison and Marilyn fragrance collection was to Glasshouse’s $54.95 Tahaa Affair, calling it “sweet and divine.”
Maison and Muse launched Marilyn in December of 2021 across New Zealand stores, but it was only made available to Australian shoppers.
