    Can you suggest similar colognes to V Valentiono pour homme?

    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......

    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.

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    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.
    For swap/sale: Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire, Vint. MPG Santal Noble, vint. Tiffany for Men, Creed Spice & Wood, Roja Dove Amber Aoud Crystal, 1 Million Intense & Absolutely Gold, Montale Cuir D'Arabie, Bentley Intense, Prada Amber PH metal travel spray, Loewe PH, vint. YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme, M7 gel, Roma (women's), Spicebomb (original), Obsession, others...

    Another vote for YSL - Body Kouros

    I have them both, and they are nearly identical.
