    Default Scents that split the difference

    I've seen some threads that compare Scent X with Scent Y, but what about scents that split the difference between two (or more) others, and why? Is there scent that's a middle ground between GIT and Tabarome (or whatever)? List 'em?

    I think just about every scent out there could be seen as splitting the difference between at LEAST two others.

    ok ok I have one

    Magnetism splits the difference between Sentiment and L'Anarchiste. I think.

    Perhaps Tumulte splits the difference between Tam Dao and Kyoto?

    Oscar for Men splits the difference between Bulgari PH Extreme and Guerlain Vetiver. Dirtier then Bulgari PH Extreme, but not as earthy as Guerlain Vetiver.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    Seems to me that Tumulte at best is what's left when you subtract Kyoto from Tam Dao . I like those two alot but I hate Iso-E-Tumulte.

    OK, how about this one?

    Then there's always this one:

    Or how about this one?
    Paco Rabanne XS splits the difference between Himalaya and Paco Rabanne XS Extrême.

    Or this one?
    Jean Pascal Pour Homme splits the difference between Devin and Passion for Men.

    Then I must mention that:

    Don't forget that . . .
    Gucci Rush splits the difference between Azzaro Visit and Diesel Green.

    But of course:

    Oh, one more before I forget -- in fact, the most blatantly obvious one of all:
    Rive Gauche Pour Homme splits the difference between Rive Gauche Pour Homme Light and Rive Gauche Pour Homme Intense.

    I'll have to say that Millesime Imperial splits the difference between Erolfa and Green Irish Tweed. Or atleast thats my thoughts on the whole damn thing.

    Sorry if this was a dumbass question. I'm still trying to figure out how things relate, and I thought this might give me some insite as to how certain scents might be alike or different.

    Some scents may share the same notes as other scents. Or are comprised of different notes that give X scent the same "feel" or smell as Y scent. So I could say that Halston Unbound smells like Acqua Di Gio with a few notes or accords taken out. I would also say that Halston Unbound is the bridge between Polo Blue and Aqua Di Gio.
