I don't have anything against knockoffs, but I do not think that the Jordache fragrances smell very good.
The fragrance oils that people sell on the street or at flea markets can be quite good. I sampled one this weekend that was labeled "Creed" (no specific name) and it was really pleasant.
Cuba Gold is a good copy of Le Male.
One of the Sambas (the one in the black bottle) reminds me of A*Men.
OS Signature reminds me of Z Zegna.
C. O. Bigelow Elixir Blue
is a good copy of Curve (which comes in a green
bottle), and Elixir Green
is a good copy of Polo Blue.
I think that is cute for some reason. (Disclaimer: I work part-time at Bath & Body Works.)
I second the vote for Liz Claiborne Realities. It is a very nice scent, and it is a little less expensive than the Dolce and Gabanna.
Good-quality knockoffs can be cheap fun. What enrages me is an expensive fragrance that claims to be original but turns out to be a copy. Phat Farm Atman is Drakkar Noir in a new bottle with a $20 higher price tag. That oughta be a crime.
