    Question Similar scents to Antaeus by Chanel ??

    Is there anything similar to Antaeus by Chanel, but not as overpowering? Something a little more closer to the skin?

    I find YSL M7 to be an "Antaeus Light". The drydown of M7 is more powdery though.

    Note that I've only got to sample Antaeus on a card, but I found it to be in a similar vein to Kouros. Antaeus had a bit more "other stuff" going on than the Kouros, which is very heavy on an incense note, and evolves into this wonderfully delicious honeyed drydown. Antaeus had a similar effect on the card. Both are great stuff!

    Caswell Massey's vintage Greenbriar. A greener version, it probably smells closer to Gucci Nobile than Antaeus.

    I just got a sample of Antaeus by Chanel and also found it to be similar to YSL M7.

    Emporio Armani Night He...similar in feel but with a citrus beginning that is not very long. Little more minimal.

    Curzon, by Geo F. Trumper (UK) strikes me as similar, but with a citrus tang at the start.

    The only scent I can think of that is in any way similar to Antaeus is actually more powerful - namely Havana. It's like Antaeus with rum punch.

    Silly question perhaps but have you experimented with fewer sprays, or spraying in less prominent areas?

    Ditto.

    Some have said Jean Pascal has elements of Antaeus to it but I haven't worn it enough to say, though I have a bottle.

    Nope. Antaeus is unique.

    yess I agree.
    f.e. you can find similarities with Kouros - they have something in common...

    but I am interested in the drydown of Antaeus, this warmth of burning candlet . From this point of view- it's unique

    Lately I have been wearing a sample of Antaeus, and find it to be a great powerhouse fragrance. Its definitely the best of all the Chanel mens fragrances that I have tried - it makes Allure smell positively weak and uninspired. I would like to add Antaeus to my collection. The fragrance transformations are: an opening blast of lavender blended with sage leading to a smooth and sexy sandalwood and patchouli heart before settling into a dry, arid leather drydown tempered with just the right amount of amber.

    I find it similar in character and execution to another late 70s/early 80s powerhouse - Van Cleef pour homme. At this point I am not sure whether Antaeus is worth acquiring if you already own Van Cleef pour homme..

    Habit Rouge is Antaeu's evil brother.

    For my money Dior's Jules has it all over Antaeus. It's darker, dirtier, and probably slept with your girlfriend.

    If they were related, Antaeus would be Habit Rouge's evil brother. Habit Rouge is a wussy.

    Basala or Basara by Shiseido is the most similar fragrance to Antaeus.

    said that antaeus is definitely unique, I found a similar appeal in Geo F. Trumper Eucris.

    I agree. It's like an updated, modern version of Antaeus.

    I like Scent 79 a lot, but never made the connection to Antaeus... It does have a similar feeling to the reformulated Antaeus, but much lighter and airier.

    Ditto. I actually find it drier and more subtle than many scents of its era. Try applying to your core rather than to pulse points (wrists, neck).

    Similar scents? I can't think of any.

    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui is a very close cousin to Antaeus.
