You're right- I never made the connection, but it's true. Envy and L'Occitane Vetiver are reminiscent of each other in some ways.
A fragrance I think is a dead ringer for Envy is J.P. Dupont Signature (I think the initials are J.D.). The bottle looks like a little inkwell. I got it cheap at Marshalls. Just like Envy with a bit more cinnamon and vanilla. It reminds me of Life cereal, just a tad. Not bad for the price.
