I forked out for a posh aftershave thinking I’d bagged a bargain but I only realised my stupid mistake when I opened it | The Sun
A BLOKE was furious after forking out £85 for what he reckoned was a luxe aftershave only to realise he had made a major mistake.
Shopper Bondi John took to TikTok to moan about the error after paying the eye-watering sum at a duty-free shop at the airport.
According to the fitness enthusiast, he had nabbed what he reckoned was a bottle of an aftershave, which cost him a whopping £85.
As the video revealed, the ''aftershave'' came in a posh black box – but unfortunately, the beauty essential was anything but a bargain deal.
Upon opening the packaging, John quickly realised that he would not be making anyone go wild with the scent – as instead of an aftershave, he had wasted the money on a candle.
Mortified, he said: ''I've only gone back and spent 85 f*****g quid on aproxy candle.''

Hundreds flocked to comments where many couldn't believe the error.
One TikTok fan said: ''I would never recover from this.
''On my death bed I’d still be ranting about spending 85 quid on a proxy candle.''
