Trying to find a le labo santal 33 dupe that’s affordable and actually smells like the real deal?
Wondering what perfume is similar to santal 33?
This list has got your back!
It’s hard not to come across at least one person wearing the Le Labo Santal 33 fragrance in a crowd – it’s just that popular and well-loved as a signature scent!
However, what people don’t love is the price tag.
Curious about what Santal 33 smell like?
Le Labo Santal 33 is an iconic, luxury, unisex, rich, and woody scent that is paraben-free, cruelty-free, vegan, and made in the USA.
It has top notes of violet accord and cardamom, middle notes of iris and anbrox, and base notes of cedarwood, leather, and sandalwod.
Whether you’ve never used santal 33 and want an affordable way to try out the scent profile.
Or you’re looking for a perfume that is similar to use daily instead of your original to save that for special occasions.
Or you love le labo so much that you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to use as a daily room spray.
There’s something in this post for everyone’s budget and needs.
Alternatively, if you really want to try out the real thing for less, Le Labo does have sample sizes available for purchase on Amazon to try before you commit to paying for a full bottle.

Best Le Labo Santal 33 Dupes:
1. Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum vs DUPE: Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Eau de Parfum
The first, and one of the most popular, le labo santal 33 dupes from Sephora is the Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Eau de Parfum.
While the name of this dupe is quite the mouth full, that’s where the differences stop.
This earthy and woody fragrance with key notes of sandalwood, vetiver, and amber wood is also vegan and paraben-free.
One reviewer on Sephora even said that they used to only use Le Labo until they found this scent and now it’s the only one they will buy!
The best part?
A 1.7 oz (50 ml) bottle of this dupe will save you $144 versus the original.
Looking for more deals?
If you prefer an essential oil application, this alternative also comes in a perfume oil version.
Lastly, if you’re looking for a le labo santal 33 candle dupe, you can also grab the candle version of this deliciously duped scent.
2. Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum vs DUPE: Oil Perfumery Impression of Le Labo Santal 33
The Oil Perfumery Impression of Le Labo Santal 33 is beloved on Reddit and one of the best hidden gems out there!
It has (the same) notes of cardamom, iris, violet, Australian sandalwood, cedarwood, papyrus, ambrox, leather accord, and musk, making it an almost undifferentiable scent to the original.
This le labo santal 33 essential oil dupe comes in a 10 ml glass bottle with a stainless steel ball roller applicator for only around $20 and will save you $210 versus buying a bottle of the OG.
If that’s not enough to sell you on this indie dupe, I’ll just leave this incredible review from Etsy here for you:
“Absolutely AMAZING! It smells exactly like the real thing but at a fraction of the price – definitely worth the buy and will be buying more as gifts for birthdays as I constantly get compliments on this perfume!! Thank you SO much! Love it!! A+++”
3. Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum vs DUPE: Commodity Book
Amazing for men and women, the Commodity Book fragrance is another hard to tell apart and cheaper to purchase perfume spray dupe that smells just like its more expensive twin fragrance.
It is a woody fragrance that has notes of sparkling bergamont, crisp eucalyptus, and warm sandalwood.
The fragrance story on their website explains that it “tips its hat to the Hemingways and Fitzgeralds of the world, conjuring the warmth of a quiet moment curled up with a good book”.
Their TikTok also beautifully showcases the sleek and minimal look of their bottle and packaging.
Although it isn’t the cheapest dupe, it will still save you $181 for a 3.2 oz (100 ml) bottle.
And you could save even more if you catch it on sale!

4. Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum vs DUPE: Kierin NYC Santal Sky
This next “le labo santal 33” dupe is *chef’s kiss*.
Kierin NYC Santal Sky is an extremely similar smelling woody fragrance that is also made in the USA, cruelty-free, vegan, eco-friendly, sustainably sourced, recyclable, and free of toxins, parabens, phthalates, unnecessary dyes, and stabilizers.
It’s also made with natural sugar cane alcohol and is so popular that they are currently sold out on their site (but still taking pre-orders!)
This UK Cosmopolitan article raves about the dupe and goes even more in-depth about the similarities between the two fragrances.
If you can’t find it on their website due to them being sold out, you might be able to still find it on Amazon.
5. Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum vs DUPE: Dossier Woodly Sandalwood
Dossier Woodly Sandalwood is an incredible and super affordable le labo santal 33 dupe!
Like the OG, it’s also vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free.
It has top notes of violet leaves and cardamom.
Middle notes of orris, ambrox, cedarwood and cypriol.
And base notes of musk, sandalwood, and amber.
The only thing that isn’t spot on to the original is the price (only $49 a bottle!), saving you $183 for a 1.7 oz (50 ml) bottle.
While this is a great option for those in the US, please note that this dupe is currently only available for shipping in the Continental US.
So if you’re in the UK or Canada, try out one of the other superstar dupes in this post instead (you really can’t go wrong with any of them).
6. Le Labo Santal 33 Eau De Parfum vs DUPE: Clean Reserve Sel Santal Eau De Parfum
Clean Reserve Sel Santal Eau De Parfum didn’t exactly try to keep it a secret they were trying to dupe the infamous fragrance when they decided on the name of this scent.
It’s a clean fragrance that beautifully replicates the scent of Le Labo with earthy and woody notes like mandarin, violet and sandalwood.
The best part?
A rollerball will only set you back $28, making this option over $200 cheaper than if you splurged on the real deal (a fraction of the price!)
Le Labo Santal 33 Dupe Wrap Up
Hopefully, this post helped you find an affordable alternative to the uber-popular and legendary scent that the New York Times dubbed the “perfume you smell everywhere“!
Some people love to splurge on an expensive perfume, and that’s totally okay, especially if it’s a scent you know you love!
But others (like myself) like to try out dupes that smell extremely similar to tell if we even like that fragrance family first, before deciding to stick with the more affordable alternative or treat ourselves to the original.
I personally stuck with the Oil Perfumery dupe, but have been loving the scent so much I may splurge on a Le Labo candle and/or a small bottle of the Le Labo perfume since I now know how that scent profile wears on me.
Do what’s right for you and please keep me posted in the comments below if you tried any of these out and what you thought!
I know there are other dupes out there as well from Target and Zara, which I’d love to hear about if you have experience with them.
However, I really wanted to focus on the best of the best from my personal experience and research in this post to provide a shortlist that’s great for a range of budgets and locations around the world.
One last tip I would give would be to wait for the bi-annual Sephora sales (usually in April and November) to save 10-20%, depending on your Sephora tier, off the dupes above that are available at Sephora.
If you enjoyed this dupe post, I have a bunch of other ones in the Beauty category of my blog you should also check out.
Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and take care!
