The festive period is officially on its way out (*cries*), but we do hope you at least got to enjoy several Christmas gifts from your list to Santa Claus this year.

If you were lucky enough to find a plush bottle of perfume under your tree this year, you may want to read on as it turns out, one brand of fragrances has been found to potentially injure users.

High street grocery and nifty-gifty retailer Aldi has today been forced to recall a certain stocking filler - their widely-popular Cozmo 'his and hers' perfumes.

The bargain-famed superstore made the discovery over the festive period that the product could cause injury after it found a fault in the packaging could trigger the glass to shatter.

The chain of supermarkets have since issued an emergency recall of both the men's and women's products.

Aldi acted fast in removing its Lacura perfumes from every single one of the millions of shops, and have also posted a product notice about the potentially-dangerous items on their website.

"Please note that the following Emergency Withdrawal and Public Product Recall has taken place," their website now reads.

"As a precautionary measure, our supplier is recalling this product due to a fault which may cause the glass bottle to break."

Aldi bosses - who have since claimed that all of their products go through 'rigorous safety and quality checks' before going on sale - are also urging customers who have brought these products to return them to their nearest Aldi store, where they'll be given a full refund.

They add that shoppers won't need a receipt in order to return the gifts, going on to say: "We apologise that this product did not meet our normal high standards and thank you for your co-operation."

The Cozmo perfumes became an instant hit with shoppers after going on sale last week, after many customers described them as the perfect dupe to a line of well-known luxury perfumes produced by Paco Rabanne.

Both Aldi scents were being sold from 10 December for a more than reasonable £6.99 each, saving them £77 compared to their high-end twin.

"Whether shoppers are looking to gift loved ones or are simply seeking a new signature scent for the festive season, these cruelty-free fragrances are guaranteed to be a sell-out, especially with savings of up to 94% compared to designer Paco Rabanne," the superstore described the perfumes.
