    Default room scents that are copies of real perfumes

    We have several brands of room scents around here, the ones where wood sticks are put in a boddle of fragrance, that are copies of real perfumes. I mean they are not just smellalikes but are an exact copy of a popular fragrances. On of the brands that can be bought around here are is called "puro". They have a fragrance called "cold water" (guess what it smells like and it's not Green Irish Tweed). Right now I have a boddle called "silent wood" in my toilet that is Terre d'Hermes in every aspect. It is amazing how this one smells exactly like the original. Does Givaudan and other producers sell their recipes to other companies?

    I cannot help, sorry Rex. But you made me curious: 'Puro' and 'Cold Water' are made by whom? And available at ....Globus, maybe?

    Not sure if this is what you mean - but in the Diptyque line Philosykos (fragrance) seems to mirror the room spray and candle Figuer.

    Puro is the brand. Silent wood one of their products. I'm not sure if Cold Water ist also a product of Puro or of some other brand. I think Globus sells Puro (or some other brand).

    Slightly off topic, since it doesn't refer to room scents "per se", but I found in a quite generic retail chain a no-name body mist, also usable as ambient fragrance/room spray (at least, according to instructions on the label), going by some highly inadequate and anachronistic name like "Mai Tai" (and showing no similarities whatsoever with the aforementioned cocktail in anything but the name), yet strongly reminding, call me crazy, of both the female and the male version of YSL's Opium, all this also with a quite good lasting power too.

    I know what you mean...And yes, such perfumeries as L'artisan, Frederic Malle are selling Scented Candles, Aromatic Amber Balls...which is available on the L'artisan Website...it works by emanating little amounts of the fragrance within periodical moments...it lasts for a long time and is worth the money if you're an avid amber follower. So, if you'd like I'll give you the links and you can have a scourer through the goodies

    Good Luck!

    Abercrombie's Feirce is often available as a room spray on eBay. I'm guessing that is how you smell the fragrance in every mall when coming close to one of their stores.

    Pretty much all Jo Malone scents come as candles and I think many come as room sprays as well.

    If there's a Pomegrante Noir room spray, I'd be interested in getting it. Haha.

    Nope, just a candle. For only $65!

    Oh yeah, Malle has those scent boxes (ahem, Fleur Mécanique, or Mechanical Flower ). Balavassassin mentioned it earlier.
