    I like it, too.

    Have you tried Armand Basi Homme, Carlos Santana, Zegna Intenso, Dunhill Desire or Prada pour homme?

    I went from "love it" to "hate it" and I'm somewhere close to "love it" again these days. It's fairly unique in my wardrobe though so sadly I can't recommend anything similar.

    I find rochas man strikingly similar but some here would disagree. Also try gaultier2... Not exactly the same but contains the same theme- vanilla, amber, and musk
    Current Top 5:

    Tabac, Cardinal, Brookes Brothers, Musc Kublai Khan, Andron

    Gaultier2 is great...BUT way too feminine....so feminine i can't get myself to buy it.

    The closest I've smelled to "V" is La Prairie's Silver Rain, which would be the closest female equivalent. They both have an unusual "rotting fruit"-like quality.

    As far as other men's scents that are similar to V, I couldn't suggest one.

    I'd suggest Ignition by Lomani, Carven Homme, and Devotion for men. Not exactly the same, but I like them better that V, which I sampled a couple of weeks ago.

    Rochas Man (maybe)

    Body Kouros

    Lanvin Arpege For Men

    ...Although, if you have Valentino, why trade down?

    I really love it too but cannot find a similar scent at all - it is very special and very ordinary at the same time!?

    Does anyone know which ingredients it has - it is not (very strange!?) in the BN Directory?

    I think Laura Biagiotti Duo Uomo has a very similar dry-down. Not my favourite any of them, so I didn't try them too many times, but the resemblance is obvious for me.

    For someone who really likes V, I'd suggest sampling ST Dupont's Signature.

    Its original in its unoriginality (like a Tarantino movie). No scent out there is quite like it, yet many bear a familiar resemblance (Body Kouros, L'Arpege, even Very Valentino).

    Cheers,

    if you can't find anything else that you like that is similar to it, Marshalls has the very V gift set for 24.99. I comes with a 1.6 oz cologne with a body wash and after shave......

    The notes are listed in the following review:

    I just tested it the other day. I had a lot on my arms already so I couldn't really get a handle on the top notes but the mid notes and drydown reminded me heavily of Body Kourous.

    I think it is the tamarind note that makes it unique, there are very few others with that note.

    V certainly is unique. Body Kouros strikes me as broadly similar, but not as interesting. Unfortunately, though I like V, it doesn't evolve well on me - I enjoy it more on others. If anyone's interested in swapping for a 100ml 90% full bottle of V, pm me.

    Another vote for YSL - Body Kouros

    I have them both, and they are nearly identical.
