    Is there a reason why those you listed are not acceptable? Price? Availability?

    You're basically talking rich woody orientals here but what really unites the three scents you mention for me is their sense of dignity and sophistication. A few others that strike me as having a similar mood are Jaïpur Homme EdP, Santal Noble, L'Air du Desert Marocain, Dia, JHL, Basala, Jubilation XXV, Givenchy Vetyver, Sycomore, and Eau Lente. Of these, Jaïpur Homme, JHL, Jubilation XXV, Desert Marocain and Eau Lente probably approach your three standards most closely in actual structure, the others beig generally drier and woodier.

    This has been compared to BdP. I find it to be a little easier to wear but just as formal and masculine. Beautifully blended.

    Cuba Red is spicy woody amber, fairly dry. Carven Homme has rosewood. The original Escada men's frag is boozy. Lalique Pour Homme (lion) is powdery sandalwood. Dunhill Desire (red) for men is teakwood based. Tiffany for men is very smooth and rich but hard to get cheap now. YSL's Jazz Prestige goes for tobacco instead of wood, but is otherwise similar. Listen by Herb Alpert goes in a spicy direction (I call it the Latin American BdP). Azzaro Visit for men adds incense to the spices and wood, and has a more trimmed down quality (it's also not as sweet as some of these and is dry).

    I think Givenchy Gentlemen fits into the same genre

    +4 , they smell so very much alike. I prefer BdP though.

    I haven't smell the Patou PH, so this may not be appropriate - but I think Egoiste and Le Dandy would be a nice fit with BdP and Heritage.

    Not quite as grand, but I think Le Dandy by d'Orsay is close to fitting the bill. Might be a little more simple than those complex beauties, but to think about the genre a little further I think it fits.

    That also makes me think of D'Orsay's Etiquette Bleue, too, which is sort of as elegant, but certainly smells different.

    Oh my, I'm blind. Look, Matthew already said Le Dandy, and I didn't even notice. Silly me. I simply second Matthew then.

    If you want a fairly respectable BdP clone try Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's Antony.

    The only difference I can smell is that about a half-hour in, Bois du Portugal has very dark, musky undertones. Antony doesn't have that stage, but the initial scent and the drydown are nearly identical. It's worth a try for about 10% of the price of BdP...
