    Question What other frags smell like Guerlain Heritage?

    I tried this one blind today, and I SWEAR I have smelled it before, and maybe even owned it, but it is my first Guerlain.

    It smells so... familiar.

    I thought maybe the BdP or PdNNY that I recently sampled, but nope...
    Opium EDT, nope... Nothing in my drobe seems to fit.

    It would have to be a mass-market, non-niche frag, since that is all I owned before discovering basenotes.

    Someone help me out with this, please! It's driving me nuts!

    *edit* maybe a seriously amped-up Pierre Cardin? (I haven't owned this one in YEARS)

    *another edit* Scratch the Pierre Cardin - that's not it either. The Creed BdP reminds me more of Pierre Cardin than Heritage does. (I realize that it is sacrilege to make this comparison - I'll probably get flamed for it!)

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I am absolutely sure you are thinking about Zino Davidoff.

    A 99% copy.

    You nailed that one! It was hidden behind my other bottles, and I haven't worn it in a while (too many samples).

    Zino seems a little bolder/spicier upon application, but they are VERY similar. I'll follow up after they dry a bit.

    DW says they are very close, but she likes Heritage better.

    *edit* ABSOLUTELY NAILED Mic, thank you. I guess if I don't know my own collection I shouldn't buy any more frags for a while... I too like the Heritage better. It seems a bit more versatile, and the longevity is good. Zino has always been a cold weather suit-and-tie frag to me. That must be why I never wear it. I'm a sweater & jeans type

    Thanks!

    It smells like a cross between Zino (closest resemblence) and Lalique (for that sour note), to me.
