Stellar Times by Louis Vuitton is a popular fragrance for
women and men with warm amber tones lifted by a fresh floral edge. The
fragrance was launched by Louis Vuitton in 2021 and was developed by renowned
perfumer Jacques Cavallier.
The fragrance has notably sweet and creamy overtones, with a
warm heart of white amber helping to ground the scent and prevent it from
becoming too heady. It has an above-average longevity, making it a popular
choice for people wanting to go directly from the office to a night out on the
town while still smelling fresh.
A good dupe fragrance will include the delicious vanilla
notes of Peru balsam that round out Stellar Times and add depth to balance the sweet
freshness of orange blossoms. You should look for a dupe with an overall soft
wood feel that isn't too masculine for women to wear, nor too sweet or floral
for men to appreciate.
High Notes: Orange Blossom Mid Notes: Amber, floral Base Notes: Peru Balm

Following the success of Angel, Thierry Mugler wanted to make an impact with another high-profile fragrance. It took thirteen years before Alien was released, but it helped him successfully challenge the scent world once again.
The creators of Alien, Dominique Ropion and Laurent Bruyere, based their scent around three key features: warmth from white Amber, woody mid notes at heart, and bright and sunny Indian Jasmine at the top.
What makes Alien stand out from many of its contemporaries is that it is based around these three single notes. Leading perfumers can sometimes overcomplicate fragrances by including an overwhelming number of ingredients in the mix. The creators of Alien kept things simple by basing the scent on three key elements, and their experiment paid off with a signature scent of seductive Jasmine, glowing Amber, and warm Woods.
Copycat just released one that's relly close. Before then we'd say they were a relatively mixed bag.
This is by far the best clone of stellar times that we've come across. Matching the scent profile almost perfectly with only the top notes fading slightly more agressively after 6 hours of wear we can't fault it when you consider it's 75% less expensive. The balance of the citrus, woods and floral notes has been done really well here.
Our blind tests had it not coming across as being decernably different on the skin after 30 minutes although for the first 10 copycat's version was a bit more saccharine.
Projection was good and clear, with the lead orange notes coming in strong from range and the base not being lost.
We'd highly recommend CopyCat Stellar to anyone looking to replace the louis vuitton original.
Scoring 5/5 for authenticity and 4/5 for staying power, CopyCat's remarkable price tag and overall customer satsifaction have Stellar almost receiving a perfect score. We'll have to wait for a few more verified customer reviews before we can give it top marks with it being a new release. But, it's looking very good for this dupe.
Although 771 by The Essence Vault is a perfect dupe for
Amber Aoud, it also has very similar notes found in Stellar Times. Currently,
the company doesn't carry a replica for Stellar Times, but this one is close.
771 has a mesmerising combination of fresh lemon, rose and
jasmine with warm woody notes that gives you a fantastic olfactory experience
that transports your mind to exotic lands dripping with warm amber and fresh
floral landscapes, such as Morocco.
Our testers had tried 771 by The Essence Vault in previous
trials when researching for a good Amber Oud dupe. When our testers first
sampled Stellar Times by Louis Vuitton, it was surprising how many said it
reminded them of 771 by The Essence Vault.
This replica fragrance has excellent longevity, and we like
the way it mellows out after wearing it for a while, leaving a warm, lingering
scent of patchouli and sandalwood.
Our testers gave 771 by The Essence Vault 3 out of 5 for
Despite being a perfect dupe for Amber Oud, this is a good choice
for anyone wanting to find a more cost-effective alternative to Stellar Times
with a similar scent profile.
Copycat Fragrances just released a Stellar Times dupe, but
they do have Amber Aoud, which is an excellent choice if you like the sweet and
floral top notes and warm amber tones of Stellar times.
Amber Aoud has a luxurious combination of sweet and spicy
aromas that is pleasing to both men and women.
Copycat Amber Aoud contains
moreish sweet fig tones that are not sickly sweet, unlike other fruity-toned
dupes. You get the rich, creamy sweetness of Stellar Times mixed with warm and
spicy base tones of cinnamon and saffron.
There is a distinct amber feel to the Copycat replica that
is reminiscent of Stellar Times, and while it isn't an exact copy of the
fragrance by Louis Vuitton, it is excellent value for money at just £54.95 for
a 100ml bottle. Our testers also gave Amber Aoud 3 out of 5 for authenticity
but thought that 771 by The Essence Vault edges it out for its exceptional
However, Amber Aoud is long-lasting and will comfortably get
you through a day and evening with just a little reapplication after work
before hitting the town.
Zara Fleur D' Oranger is a dead ringer for Jo Malone's Orange
Blossom. However, because Stellar Times uses top notes or orange blossom
essence, the Zara copy is also a good substitute for Stellar Times.
There is a distinct citrus opening, but it quickly mellows
out with a floral edge of orange blossom coming through. This is a similar
first experience to Stellar Times, but the original scent has more warm amber
tones to enhance the experience.
Zara Fleur d' Oranger has a deeply exotic ylang-ylang floral
smell rather than the woody edge Stellar Times possesses. The sillage and
longevity could be better compared to the original, but for the price, you can
afford to reapply it more regularly to get you through a whole day and night of
