    Default Cormandel smells like LDDM

    I was wondering, what is in Cormandel, That makes it smell so similiar to L'air Du Desert Marocain?

    Sorry to disapoint you, but Coromandel smells nothing like L'Air du Desert Marocain. Coromandel is an exquisite patchouli fragrance created by the very talented Chris Sheldrake. It's his Chanel version of Lutens' Borneo.

    I haven't smelled L'Air du Desert Marocain, but have had the pleasure of wearing Coromandel. It really is a terrific rendition.

    The two smell nothing alike, in my opinion. However, there is something in LDDM that reminds me of Narciso Rodrigues for Her and SJP Lovely. Probably LDDM has the same musk aromachemical.

    Im sitting here, with LDDM on one wrist and Comandel on the other, To me they smell so similiar, could it be my chemistry?

    Is your Coromandel an original bottle or a decant? I was wondering that maybe the Coromandel isn't Coromandel at all. I can't think that it's skin chemistry because to my knowledge, L'Air doesn't contain any patchouli and Coromandel is virtually all patchouli.

    Very strange. I'm wondering now whether you have inhaled quite a lot of the L'Air and it's still affecting your nasal membranes because it is rather potent, to say the least.

    Why don't you try another side by side in a day or two after you have showered and are scentless. Your nose will be more acute and discerning.

    Yes I think this is the only way that this will work.

    If you want a cheaper version of the Coromandel drydown (definitely not the top notes) then just grab the original Prada perfume (the "women's").

    Thats weird, because I always think encre noire and leather purses (not mine, of course) smell similar; yet they are completely different things.
