I mean...

 

How many smells do perfumers even work with?? Obviously they're going to use a combination of different smells that another brand peobably thought of too... If ALL of the smells in a fragrance are the same as the other one, i can understand calling it a clone... but sometimes i read stuff like...

 

"Well, this is exactly X fragrance, if you remove the Y note and the Z note, and add the A note and the B note"

 

Well... if you have to change around four notes to get to that scent, how is it a clone? It just happens that they have a couple of similar notes... it's not like there are 100,000 different notes they can use.

 

No?
