    Default Better version of Chrome

    As I'm gearing up for summer, I'm trying out tons of scents that I think might be good for the heat. Chrome is one that I'm definately considering, but I feel like I could do better. What is a scent that is similar to Chrome but is maybe juicier and more lively?

    Maybe you should just go with Chrome...

    Even though I don't like it, I get nothing but compliments on it :-[

    I also wish I could find something like Chrome that I like as much as other people.

    Nothing wrong with Chrome. It's a great clean and fresh scent. You may want to upgrade and go with Geir. More unique, stronger, complex and really nice!!

    Live Jazz!! ;D

    I think it smells more like Tabarome Millesome but it is very good for the summer and fits in that category. I love Chrome though and I would wear that if I could. I probably will for most of the summer. I have enough juice for 4 summers so I think I am set on that one.

    I always thought Chrome was a better version of cK One. You might think the opposite

    I always thought Chrome and CKone were very similar, CKone is more citrussy.

    I like Chrome a lot, but I think L`eau Bleue D`Issey is like more refined version of this scent. It`s more complex, a bit warmer with pleasant green nature, but I definitely think it shares similarities with Chrome.
    Find out for yourself!

    agreed! go with "the power of geir".

    In all seriousness look through the archives, there have been many funny stories about it.

    Besides CK One which was already mentioned, Lise Watier's Neiges pour homme is in the same family. It's smoother than Chrome though.

    O don't worry guys, I'm familiar with the "Power of Geir." In fact, I'm the author of a couple of those stories you mentioned. I agree it's great, though it isn't all that similar to Chrome.

    Though I won't interject with personal opinion, Lacoste Essential is like a more floral version of Chrome. Essential has a little bit of a flowery-boozy smell, but still has that sharp accord from Chrome that smells like rubbing alcohol and doctor offices.

    I'd recommend L'eau Par Kenzo. It's citrussy and aquatic but it doesn't have the sharp bite that Chrome does. It's rounder and smoother IMO.
