Crazy, looks like I need to spend $35 to be right lol!!
I bought a bottle of DE last week havent opened it till today, they had 2 bottles, one with oakmoss listed (which I bought) and the other that I sprayed on (it was open) that did not have Oakmoss listed on the box.
So the one I tested, to me, smelled very very close to Halston Amber Man.
Today I opened my oakmoss bottle, and did a side by side, and I have to eat my words, they are not as close as I remember.
I am going back to get the bigger bottle of DE, which must be a different formulation, after I get that one, I will do another side by side, I will be honest and let you know if it is similar or not.
Anyways side by side DE, (Oakmoss, EA Fragrances) 9:00 AM, opened spicy, cedar, and some smell that reminded me of earwax. Now at 11:30 its pretty close to the skin, slight oud and cedar.
Halston, Opened smoky, myrrh, and cedar, kicked DE's ASS for the first 2 hours, just overpowered it the whole time, now at 11:30 it IS similar to the DE, but it has a dominating dry sweet Myrrh note above the Oud, cedar base.
This was NOT NEARLY as close as the other bottle I smelled of the DE, but again, without doing a direct side by side, memory can play its tricks on me. So I will go get the other bottle and report back, probably next week.
All my previous comparisson, was based off the only DE I smelled, which is the bottle I did not buy.
