    Question Yang by Jaques Fath. Anything comparable to it?

    I am in love with Yang. I stumbled upon it while doing a blind buy,
    and am very happy I did. The problem is, I can't seem to find it as
    easily as I did before. Is there anything like it out there? What other perfumes are similiar to it? Including the amazing time it lasts on my skin..

    Thanks alot for any and all suggestions.

    Nothing I've come across really smells quite like Yang. You'd have to check out other tea scents like Bvlgari Black and L'Artisan's Tea for Two to see if they had enough similarity for your taste.

    When the Directory is back on line, do a check for tea in the fragrance notes and see what it throws up.

    Yes, Absolument Absinth from Le Parfum D'Interdits is VERY much alike!

    Pro's, the latter lasts much longer plus it has a far more interesting drydown.
    Con's, it's much more expensive and probably not that easy to find also, especially if you live outside of Europe.

    I'm glad you remebered this one. How did I forget it when I wear it every now and then?

    Although the black tea note in both it and Bvlgari Black always reminds me a bit of rubber for some reason.

    Nothing similar IMO. It's really good, but I just got bored with it.

    I sold my bottle and now the buyer is selling it. It's the good old vintage stuff, not Ying Yang.

    Also, you might find bottles popping up on Ebay.

    Good Luck!

    There's something in Bond No. 9 Hamptons that reminds me of Yang. It may be the sharp tea note, albeit Hamptons is more aquatic.

    I feel Gucci Pour Homme II shares a similarity to Yang with some Givenchy Blue Label mixed in.

    I bought it 2 weeks ago and really like it. However, its opening is very synthetic and it hurt my nose.

    I got a hint of green tea in it, which should appear in some of Bvlgari scents. Apart from that, I've got John Player Special "Be Green" and I find some similarities in them.

    I also recommend Annick Goutal's Duel. I own both Yang and Duel, and wore Yang today as my SOTD.

    They are similar to my nose. Duel seems a bit richer, fuller, and perhaps woodier in the drydown. Yang seems leaner and more airy. But they are alike in their overall smell.

    Tried...Elizabeth Arden's tea's. it is cheap. But the time it lasts is cheap too. 30 minutes at best for me. Same with the other teas from elizabeth arden, Spiced, Iced, Summer (Or was it tropical?) etc.

    If I remeber correctly, it has a Bvlgari PH vibe going on.

    Duel is much richer (with spices) than Yang and the two are somewhat simliar. IMO Cartier Declaration is MUCH closer to Yang than Duel, with an emphasis on the drier, woodier elements and a touch less sweetness.

    Finally got Duel after more then a month .
    Is it comparable to Yang?; Perhaps...not to my nose though.

    The opening reminds me of Eau Savage...with some green tea
    thrown in for good measure.
    After that it mellows down into the most enchanting smell.
    It stays close to the skin, but now and then a whiff comes up to my nose.
    In the mid notes I can smell Clove, Iris and an undertone (the musk? ) I can't
    quite nail down. It is beautiful though.

    Thanks Noggs for the suggestion! I love it! I'm going to enjoy it for a long time .

    Cartier's declaration is next on my list to try though... Perhaps it is closer to Yang.
