    Default Similarities? Havana and Comme des Garcons?

    I am very taken with the opening notes of Havana- smokey, alluring, mysterious, and very Cuban.

    Sometime ago I tested one of the CDG scents and thought that Havana was in the same league. Am I wrong? And which of the CDG scents, preferably in an edp, would you recommend?

    Thanks

    It's been a couple of days now. Is there anyone out there with some observations regarding my query?

    The closest one i can think of that is even anthing remotely similar with Havana is probably CdG 2 Man, but it doesn't come in the edp, the edp comes with the CdG original, but it doesn't really remind me of Havana, though the CdG original is quite spicy like a spicy medicine shop. I hope this would help you somewhat.
    Current top 5:
    1. MDCI Chypre Palatin
    2. Puredistance M
    3. Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait
    4. Guerlain Coriolan
    5. BPC Oud

    Haven't smelled Havana, but I'm curious to find out which CdG you are referring too.

    Recommending a CdG scent in EdP strength is quite easy since there aren't too many. The original Comme des Garçons EdP and Comme des Garçons 2 EdP. I'm not sure about White, 3 and 2 Man though... I'm not swearing that these are the only ones, but the only ones I know of in EdP.

    That is an interesting observation. I think a case can be made that Havana and the (original) CdG share similar spicy herbal compositions during the start. However the drydowns diverge a lot.

    Havana: Bay Rum, Cumin, Jamaican Pimento Berry, Pepper

    CdG: Cardamom Oil, Coriander Oil, Geranium Oil, Nutmeg Oil, Cinnamon Bark Oil, Clovebud
