Now, these aren't duplicates but they will probably scratch that itch you have. You can get samples of almost anything on Scented Monkey, Beauty Encounter and The Perfumed Court.
Meh.. Magnetism (which I recently sold) smells like and overpowering version of Armani Code.. both of which are nothing like Corduroy.
Dunhill products disgust me.. maybe its just me but I find that every Dunhill fragrance with the exception of Pure, has this nasty stale smell. I've owned over 300 fragrances and unfortunately a few were Dunhill..I kept saying to myself..I'll give them another shot.. but they never seem to impress me. Desire smells much like Diesel Plus Plus, both of which I owned and sold, both are overpowering and linger. The absolute worst though was Dunhill Man, absolutely horrid.. Maybe one of the most nauseating fragrances ever produced, plus nothing appealing in the juice itself. I got a sample of Desire Blue and it smelled like a less powerful version of Desire, still unappealing to me. I'm a fan of spicy scents, but Desire, Desire Blue, And Diesel Plus Plus for that matter were all total crap. Dunhill Fresh was another screw up, too many ingredients ruined this one. Pure was the only tolerable one IMHO. It was very floral, along the lines of BLV.
As for Tommy Bahama.. big fan of their line, I own both Set Sail South Bart's and South Sea's, both of which are excellent and unique. Very Cool is ok but a little bit too Hawaiian, and the original is very good, unique, I actually need to add that to my collection.
Still none of these smell like Corduroy, when you first spray Corduroy on you.. it's that initial scent that's so unbelievable.
