    Smile Anything smell similar to NEROLI SAVAGE-creed, Hermes-Orange, Guerlain-Imperial?

    I'm new to the scent game. I own Bois du Portugal, nightimey and wintery, love it, but want a cheap everyday scent that is like Neroli Sauvage, but maybe a little cheaper.

    GIT is to COOL WATER
    as
    MI is to Unforgivable
    as
    Neroli Sauvage is to ??????
    also I like Hermes Orange verte but it is too weak what is close to this?
    I like Guerlain Imperial, but it also fades hard, what is similar to this?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I've heard that Fleur du Male is similar to Neroli Sauvage, although I could be completely wrong and thinking of something else.

    I'll be the first to disagree with that one! (edit...actually, I'll kind of agree, but in protest!)

    they do share some notes, but to compare the cloying synthetic mess that is FdM to NS is an insult

    as a sidenote, good alternatives to FdM would be Castile, Fleurs d'Citronnier (lutens), and there are plenty of others. I hate that FdM! The Guerlain is a good stand-in for Citrus Bigarrade! (but I know I'm still off topic!)

    Nothing is coming to mind to substitute for the NS. Just get a cheap(er) tester!

    Why not Eau Sauvage?

    I'd say they are diametrically opposed interpretations of the same concept (neroli, i.e. orange blossom). There's quite a number of orange or neroli fragrances, but those in the frahs-light vein are bound to be short-lived. Actually Neroli Sauvage does reasonably well.

    Here are some older threads on classic EdCs, that may be helpful:

    How about Diorella by Dior - it's for women, but most people refer to it as the Eau Savage for women?

    Another that comes to mind is Anbar by Comme des Garcons (Cologne Series).

    Terre d'Hermes is reasonably close in character to Neroli Sauvage, and much less expensive. I dare say that it (TdH) also wears more consistently than the Creed. Cartier's Declaration is also very close to Terre d'Hermes, and both are remarkably similar to Nina Ricci's Memoire d'Homme.
