That's a valid point, though the term "Interpretation" is a bit nicer than "knock-off"
I'd like to see a relevant cross-list though. Chanel #19 and #22 are obvious; Chyper appears to be a class of scents more than a specific one though (like "Pour Homme"). What about the spicy Citrus scents? Sandalwood is done to death by everyone, always a bit different. YOBS is ... not a favorite of mine, but original.
I see 6 direct knock-offs (which claim as much-- dead ringer for original Old Spice? Dublin Tweed? Chanel?), one definite "interpretation" that's been done to death to the point of becoming its own category, and 7 that I think are fully original.
