Chanel's Chance Eau Tendre is counted among the best perfumes thanks to its fresh and fruity anatomy—but as to be expected from the iconic name, a bottle does not come cheap.

The scent itself features a soft blend of jasmine, rose and teakwood, with sparkling hints of citron that once spritzed, create a violet-like aroma on the skin. Now that's all well and good but a bottle of the floral perfume will set you back $90 for 1.2 fluid ounces. 

Thankfully though, fragrance enthusiasts over on TikTok come through with three perfectly fresh alternatives from ZARA, Target and Dossier all for under $30...

3 Chance Eau Tendre swaps that TikTok loves

As a former wearer of Chance Eau Tendre myself (Le Labo Santal 33 is my new go-to, in case you were interested), I can attest to the hype of this scent. It's sweet and warm but still fresh and really reminds me of Parma Violets...but fancy. It's the perfect everyday fragrance and will no doubt earn you a multitude of compliments when worn as a date night scent

That being said, it is on the pricier side but like with these YSL Black Opium replicas, there are a few almost identical alternatives out there, just waiting to be spritzed...

One such fragrance is ZARA's Applejuice, which—like most of ZARA's perfume range—has been dubbed by TikTokers as a close swap.

The perfume (which is priced at just $19.90) features a mix of apple, orange and pink grapefruit, with core notes of jasmine, rose and violet—which, in particular, Chance Eau Tendre smells like—followed by warm hints of cedar and sandalwood. 

All in all, it's very reminiscent of the OG but bear in mind that it's longevity isn't quite there, with many TikTok shoppers saying they have to reapply. Though for under $20, that's a price we're willing to pay!

Next up is Target's Magnolia Violet which is again, said to be very similar to Eau Tendre, in fact, one shopper actually wrote in their review: "Similar fragrance notes to Chance by Chanel (my all-time fave), for a fraction of the price. Super cute packaging, fragranced with essential oils instead of perfume allergens. Excellent find!"

Others also compared it to Marc Jacob's Daisy, so if that's your signature, this could be a good option for every day!

Dossier, which offers an affordable range of perfumes inspired by iconic scents, also offers a homage to Eau Tendre, with similar notes of grapefruit, pear, jasmine, lilac, Orris and Amber Woods. All for just $29 for 1.7 fluid ounces.
