More Affordable versions of upmarket fragrances

Rate this Entry
Over the past 3-4 years, my project of sampling the world of cheap colognes for quality has resulted in finding several that are nearly identical to popular and more expensive fragrances. I thought I might share some of these findings with the BN community:
Yacht Man Metal is identical to Chanel Allure Homme Sport
Thallium Sport is identical to Happy by Clinique
AB Spirit Millionaire is very similar to Azzaro 1 Million (no surprise there)
Lomani is very similar to Drakkar Noir
Adidas Dare is identical to Givenchy Play Intense
Fujiyama Homme is identical to L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme
Baryshnikov Sport is identical to PE 360
The drydown stage of Cold by Benetton is identical to Lagerfeld Classic
The drydown stage of Paradise by Alfred Sung is very similar to Polo Blue

In the cases of Baryshnikov Sport, Fujiyama Homme, and Paradise by Sung, I feel these are actually preferable to their more popular originators. Baryshnikov and Fujiyama are both better blended and project and smoother and more delicate fragrance than PE360 and Issey. In the case of Paradise, the papaya replaces Polo Blue's cucumber, and the effect is wonderful, warming, and welcome.
