    Atinay, to each nose his own 8)
    To me they both smell equally citrussy (shitloads of yuzu for sure), aquatic, light and horrible. I agree Happy is somewhat more orangey though. Dunno with the rest of you guys but the stuff that generally comes out nowadays is getting harder and harder to tell apart. I think before houses would«nt really launch something unless it had some character. Now like with everything else it«s only about money. The thing I really believe in though is that serious development and work can pay off big time, Look at Le Male-very original and Gaultiers only male scent-top seller in all of Europe yyear after year -surely a fantastic investment and set to rape all annual CK -crap launches forever!

    My Moschino Uomo?/212 experience fits nicely in here.
    To the ultra similar Emporio White and VersaceJC i must now also add Davidoff Echo which particularly echoes E A White!

    More clones?

    For me, I found that Linx/Axe ( axe over here ) Africa is VERY similar to Givenchy - Pi.

    Axe Africa also is very similar to Axe Kilo... But I havn't been able to find Kilo in Europe.

    Gucci Pour Homme and Cuiron

    Default Re: Similar Fragrances

    Claiborn Sport (1997) and Dali Le Roy Soliel (1998).

    So very similar, except that the Dali has a bit more depth, less of a synthetic feel and removes a nasty note that was lurking somewhere there in Sport. I was surprised to see that the Claiborn came out BEFORE the Dali ... had always assumed it must have been the other way around.

    BTW has anyone tried Austin Reed for men?
    It«s such an obvious attempt to copy Allure, a successful one if looking for total similarity.
    Also I get the feeling that Dunhill Edition (lovely btw) must have some counterpart out there?

    Thanks for all the replies guys.
    When sampling in the city today I came to the conclusion that CK Crave and Escape are also very similar-equally horribl to IMO...

    I tested Comme de Garcons 2 yesterday and thought somebody has filled the bottle with Gucci pour Homme.

    Even the lady at the counter noticed the similarities.

    For those that like Caron 'Pour Un Homme'...You may also want to try Molinard Les Senteurs 'Patchouli' (very similar). I also think Burberry 'Touch' smells a lot like Christian Dior 'Fahrenheit'...only a little lighter.

    Default Re: Similar Fragrances

    Creed's Green Valley reminds me a lot of Fahrenheit as well.

    Herrera for men at times is like SMW.

    There's also a connection between Himalaya and the older Montana pour Homme (red packaging).

    Montana is also similar to Havana Reserva by Aramis.

    BUT: If some might think Himalaya then is like Havana: No way!! Completely different. Strange fragrance world ...

    Larry the great is back posting on occasion! Glad to have you, but on this post I must strenuously disagree. I have both Pour Un Homme and Les Senteurs Patchouli, and while I am not going to call my friend a madman, I can't see how they're alike in any way no how.
    Keep on sprayin', sniffin', and postin'!

    This is another one of my trashy posts. I feel the urge to draw a parallel between Beleaf by The Body Shop and Felce Azzurra, which is a widely known (in Italy) line of bath/body care products.

    The two entities smell practically the same.
