I happen to sample IC this weekend (before noticing this thread). It occured to me how similar it was to something I must have worn somewhere in the 80's. What vaguely came to mind was Pierre Cardin (pour Homme?). I had earlier made a mental note back when I sampled Creed's Bois du Portugal (mentioned above as a similar fragrance) as being similar to Pierre Cardin as well. Having owned Halston's Z-14 (also mentioned above), I would agree how someone might make the comparison of similarity to TF Italian Cypress as well. I can't imagine myself spending serious money on an expensive fragrance with no obvious "new ground broaken" and with forerunners which cost but a fraction of the price.
