    I haven't come across anything similar to it. You might be able to get a scent close to it by layering a green chypre with Harrisa by CdG, but that sounds like a more expensive alternative.

    Your best bet is buying a bottle on Ebay or spending the time trying to locate one.

    Basala is good to go for sure. Try xmen for minis. His deal is a good one.

    Basala is not available there.

    I don't find Xeryus Rouge or B Men capture the dryness and naturalness of Basala -- they are sweet and synthetic, totally missing the chypre skeleton and gorgeous sandalwood etc etc.

    The only one I've found that's in the same zone is Jaguar Mark II, not surprisingly as it's by the same perfumer a couple years later. That's probably not much help since if anything it's even more rare and expensive.
