    Default Guerlain Derby ......

    Hello everyone. It's been a wild day up here in Niagara Falls today. I was hit by a tornado this morning at 11am . I lost halfof my roof and deck, and four large pines were up rooted and destroyed. Good news is no injuries. I hope ant other Bassnoters that were hit by this storm are okay .

    Looking for a scent that closely replaces Guerlain Derby. If you guys have any ideas it is appreciated.


    Thanks,

    This is tough IMO as this is quite unique.

    I'm not sure there is anything to replace it - or even resemble it. But you might consider:


    Gucci BY GUCCI pour Homme by Gucci

    Roadster Sport by Cartier

    Tom Ford for Men EXTREME by Tom Ford

    Déclaration Essence by Cartier

    I don't remember what Derby smells like but I am glad to hear you're OK; I didn't realize it was as bad as all that up there today...

    Although there's nothing quite like Derby, it shares more in common with the leather chypres that preceded it then the masculine fougeres that were its contemporaries. Therefore perfumes like Miss Dior, Diorling, and Rochas Audace share some of the same vibe, as do vintage leather fragrances such as En Avion and Lanvin Scandal.

    However the best you do to replace Derby is buy the current version of Derby from Guerlain boutiques. Although not quite as rich it's pretty damn close and it's unmistakably Derby....

    Not sure why you just don't get another Derby if you like it. Some of the best noses in here seem to think the new version is as good (and sometimes better) than the old.

    It is pricey. But I have to say, it's quite distinctive. I find it to be very well blended and basically a masculine "perfume." Patou Pour Homme comes to mind for me as something similar, but it doesn't smell like Derby and it's way pricier, rare and hard to find.

    A fair question, although I think his recently-remodeled roof might have something to do with it.

    What a trooper you are, johnjohn! A tornado strikes your house, you lose half your roof and deck, have four large trees uprooted, and yet here you are on Basenotes asking questions about Derby.

    I hereby award you the Basenotes Medal of Perfume Honor!
