    It sounds like you're asking for designer or less expensive options. IMO, and although the notes are different, the closest would be Azzaro Chrome and Carolina Herrera 212 Men.

    I'll agree, Bond No. 9 Hamptons smells like SMW on top, but don't know how it continues.
    I definitely think Unforgiveable smells much more like SMW than MI does.

    Default Re: is there any scent that smells like SILVER MOUNTAIN WATER?

    Out of all the Bonds I've tried, I haven't tried Hamptons yet, but I assume you would get the top notes and not the famous Creed house note. I honestly don't think Unforgivable smells like MI...It smells like Wall Street. Believe it or not, I think Unforgivable's drydown is closer to SMW than MI. MI's drydown is a lot warmer, if that makes any sense at all.

    I haven't come across any male scent with a distinctive black currant note like SMW, thus nothing smells remotely like it that I've come across.

    I find Silver Mountain Water remarkably similar to the opening of Moschino Cheap & Chic and Moschino Oh! They all seem to have the same entirely synthetic metallic/inky amalgam. The drydown of Cheap & Chic, in contrast to SMW and Oh!, is floral, however. Anyone who likes SMW should check out Moscino Oh! On the other hand, if you dislike SMW, you'll want to steer clear of these Moschino compositions...

    Me too...but as the scent progresses (Hamptons) it takes a different turn...kinda ambery....so the drydown is different from that of SMW.

    In the same manner Sean Jean put out Unforgiveable to smell like MI, I believe his I Am King is supposed to smell like SMW.

    Haven't tried it and the reviews in directory are none too good.

    Sean John's fragrance isn't an exact clone of SMW but the similarities are there. I think it's a good scent that gets bad reviews due to his habit of ripping off other creations. It's worth a try though if you can look past that fact.

    I can't think of anything remotely like SMW.
    You might get a really cheap approximation by layering a little CK Escape with... mmm... something to give it the slightest hint of ambery warmth... Davidoff's Silver Shadow/Adventure???

    Further to what I wrote above, to my nose The Original by The Gap bears a strong similarity in style to Silver Mountain Water.
    I think of The Original as SMW without the blackcurrant, but with a bit of leather tossed in instead.

    I have SMW, the Original and I am King on my hands at the moment. I can't smell an similarity between I Am King and the other two.

    The only fragrance that reminds me of the blackcurrant notes in SMW is Mefisto by Xerjoff. Mefisto certainly isn't a SMW clone, it's far more classier, better quality and longer lasting, but I do detect a similar blackcurrant note coming through for the first half hour as SMW when I spray my Mefisto.

    Default Re: is there any scent that smells like SILVER MOUNTAIN WATER?

    I'm a bit agitated by all the 'I am King = SMW ripoff' comments here. People assume that Unforgivable was a MI knockoff, and therefore project their feelings on 'I am King'.

    Nobody who has sniffed both SMW and I am King would think SMW was a template for I am King, whilst with a bit of a stretch you might say that MI was a template for Unforgivable, or the formula for Green Irish Tweed was a template for Cool Water.

    Bond's Hamptons is boozier towards the drydown whereas SMW is sharper, almost nose tinglingly sharp and muskier. I prefer Hamptons, it's drydown appeals to me more than SMW's does.

    I haven't tried Bond no 9 Hamptons, but Montale Boise Fruité is definetely the closest one, which I know. Boise Fruité smells very similar than SMW, although SMW is more fresh comparing the two. Boise Fruité is also stronger with better sillage and longevity as Montales usually do.

    I have sampled I am King and think it smells good. Understand that I am not a Puffy fan or whatever he calls himself, I am a metalhead. A lot of people are saying that CKone and Chrome smell like SMW. I unfortunately have not smelled SMW, but if it does smell like CHROME, then I have to say that I am King is not a "knockoff" of SMW.

    I used the sample I have of I Am King once but damn it's horrible. It's not even close to SMW to my nose.

    Unfortunately the only other one that I find is similar, as others have said, is Hamptons. I slightly prefer SMW but I enjoy both

    For 10th or is 20th time? I am King smells about as much like Silver Mountain Water, as Acqua di Gio smells like Joop!, they are 100% different. One is sharp, cold black currant and tea, the other is a synthetic fruit bowl. The only scents which I know smell like SMW, are rather expensive: Montale Boise Fruite and Xerjoff Mefisto.

    I couldnt see any similarity either with I Am King... Unforgivable has more in common, and even then its pushing it.

    I won't quote anyone directly, but I find it amusing when people state their opinions as fact and believe they can speak on behalf of everyone in the world. Fragrance is subjective and your nose won't always agree with what others perceive. Everyone's sense of smell is different. I'm sure there are people out there who can't tell the difference between I am King and SMW, but does that make them wrong?

    While the note pyramid of I am King is not identical to SMW, one could argue that they both share similar citrus accords. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, which shouldn't be subjected to ridicule especially on this forum.

    Sun Java White for men smells similar but it wouldn't be redundant to own both.
    Top Notes: Bergamont, Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit, Black Currant and Tangerine.
    Heart: Mint, Sage, Pepper, Rosemary, and Patchouli
    Base: Musk and Amber

    Out of those I get all the top notes, mint, rosemary, and with just a touch of patchouli.

    There's nothing that can replace silver mountain water. It's such a beautiful composition.
    Definitely not the metallic nastiness of al rehab silver. I can appreciate why some think so however. For a split second when you smell them you might think they're close.

    Yes there is a fragrance which smells exactly like Silver Mountain Water.... Its called Creed Silver Mountain Water

    Default Re: is there any scent that smells like SILVER MOUNTAIN WATER?

    Nothing I've ever smelled is like SMW.

    I have both the Hamptions and SMW and I get where some people might compare & confuse the opening of the both of them because of the Lime blossom and bergamot in the Hamptons to the Bergamot and Mandarin in SMW but to me they are not even close and from there on they really take a completly different path. I enjoy both but much prefer SMW in the opening which is much sharper. The middle notes of Green tea and blackcurrant really seperate the two and of course the dry down on both are so different from each other IMO.

    BTW I always get a " you smell so good " from the 21 young and middle aged women I work with when I wear SMW but a "thats not bad" when I'm wearing the Hamptons. Hell I get great compliments when I wear Mulger The Cologna from the crew. All 3 are in a similar genre but are still so different to a nose that knows.

    If you want something Like SMW why not get the real thing. Fragrancenet has it at a discount price always and with the 20% coupon it's not gonna break the bank either.

    I agree.

    What the heck do the price tags have to do with the olfactive similarity of the fragrances?? Do people think the ingredients of SMW really cost 25-30 times those of Silver? I suspect the majority in difference in cost is merely profit in Messrs Creed back pockets. Nowt wrong with that and I have gratefully contribured to their coffers, but will never buy SMW.
