    Question What smells like Axe Africa / Kilo, but better?

    What smells like Axe Africa / Kilo, but better? I quite like the vanilla smell in the Axe Africa, but I would like to buy a cologne which is suited for more formal occassions.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Bogart pour Homme is very similar but worlds better, much more complex, lasts for 12 hours + and won't make people think you smell like you're 14 years old.

    For some reason I get nuttiness out of Kilo and I like the warm feel of it. When I first smelled it, it reminded me of Very Irresistible for men by Givenchy. But truthfully, I like Kilo better!

    Minotaure smells quite like it, but more soapy and a bit less woody. I prefer Africa to it though tbh. Chanel's Allure smells a bit similar IMO. If you like Africa/Kilo, just wear it :P

    I hate Minotaure :O But to be honest, I bought it because the opening and midnotes reminded me so much of Axe Africa. It's just the musty base that ruins the whole composition.

    Minotaure and Christian Audigier for Men definitely have the Kilo thing going on.
    I refuse to sink.

    Ah, my nose isn't that refined so I am probably way off the mark describing it as soapy. I agree though, the base is horrible in Minotaure (to me). It's nauseating. It's a shame because the opening notes are fantastic.

    +1 on Chanel Allure Homme.

    A marginal suggestion of Axe Africa, even Kilo, is sensed by me whenever I come across certain gourmands

    I could hardly call them formal, but scents along the lines of AMen (mainly the initial one, but some of the flankers too), Joop Homme, Dior Homme Intense, Le Male, Very Irressistibile by Givenchy have a strong, earthy, lasting and near-rugged vanilla note (IF vanilla could ever be rugged, as opposed to creamy, comforting, smooth, sugary etc.) somehow reminding of Axe Africa
