own LIDGE and got a sample of Coromandel when purchasing Sycomore. So have sampled these together, one on each hand.
IMO they have a lot in common, the patchouli / cocoa notes are in both, but LIDGE some citrus on top, and Coromandel has more of a classic Chanel floral backing.
Both wonderful, and would have a place in any collection, but I'm happy with only LIDGE for the time being.
To be honest if I was going to get another patchouli/chocolate frag it would be Borneo 1834. Had a sample I this and loved it. Like being lost in a dank, dark & humid jungle... In other words wonderful. Same nose as Coromandel - Christopher Sheldrake.
