    Body Kouros and M7 Fresh are better than the originals,in my opinion.
    But the best is Jaipur Homme Fraicheur Epicee ,a lighter and much more wearable Jaipur.

    By the way,there are numerous flankers of Boucheron Pour Homme and Jaipur and not all of them recorded...
    It's never too late to mend.

    I agree with Vetiver Extreme.

    Antaeus Sport. I found it to be a little deeper than the original Antaeus. Great find.

    My vote also goes to B*Men. Love this stuff and bought the one with the cool rubber flask for cheap! It's just a shame the weather is warming up so I can't wear it as often during the day. Good thing the night is still cold!

    Mine? L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme, the flanker of their earlier L'Eau d'Ambre.

    24, Faubourg Eau Délicate
    Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge, if it can be considered a flanker of Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert.

    Mike alraedy mentioned my favorites: Shalimar Eau Legere, Declaration Essence and No. 5 Eau Premiere.

    I also like Vol de Nuit Evasion and a Cartier Pasha Menthe that my dad owned.

    I don't think of the various Montale Aouds as flankers as much as it's a 'line' with the 'Aoud' name designation to indicate that it contains an oud accord, but hey it's just semantics.

    I, too am glad to see the Hypnotic Poison love. It's one of the fragrances I wish I could shout to everyone "try this! try this! it's good and you'd never know it!" It deserves to be far more discussed than it is, and it's completely unisex.

    This one is interesting because it's the rare flanker of a flanker (Polo Sport Extreme flanks Polo Sport, which flanks Polo). Never tried it but I've always been curious what it smells like.

    I don't know if Hermes Kelly Caleche is a rightful flanker of Caleche, but if it is we can include that one.

    Flankers are confusing.
    According to my training notes, EP is just an 'updated variation' of the fragrance, but I would call it a flanker.
    None of Chanel's different concentrations have the same ingredients, they always add and take away - which is practically impossible to explain to customers ("it still smells the same though!"). It's why the EDP versions of No5 (sharp and fatty) and No19 (fetid) are so repulsive to me in comparison to the EDT.

    My fav flanker is one that's much hated on this board: Givenchy Insense Ultramarine.
    It's definitely the loudest scent I own...it's a piercingly strong (can be headache inducing) spicy aquatic and I absolutely understand why it's hated...but I apply it in moderation and I only wear it in the summertime - it always reminds me of going on vacation.

    Polo Sport Extreme smells like the strongest black pepper note you've ever smelled, concentrated into a fragrance and then set atop the original Polo Sport aquatic base. If those sturdy pepper notes could be removed and made into a fragrance all by themselves it'd be great. As it is though, the aquatic base really annoys me.
