    Default Sushi imperiale a copy of Opium Pour Homme?

    Hi!
    I`m testing today a sample of Sushi Imperiale. One of my friends gave me it and i decided to use it today. I`m shocked because i cannot see any difference with opium pour homme. It smells kind of a mix between opium pour homme edt and opium pour homme edp. But, it`s so expensive! Who they want to fool?
    Has anyone tested it and detected this similarty?

    I tested it against the Opium Pour Homme Eau D'Orient some time ago and thought there was a good deal of similarity, especially in the base notes - and therefore not something really different enough to warrant the hefty price tag.

    Yes, they're VERY similar. The Bois 1920 is a bit more cinnamon prominent, but it also relies heavily on a bunch of aldehydes...too, too many for me to comfortably wear it. I prefer the Opium Pour Homme EdP.

    Mike, I also prefer it too. After all, you can find it for less than half of the price of the Bois 1920 one. This is what shocked me, the attempt of selling for a premium price something that you can have for less. I cannot find anything that justifies buying sushi, because even opium pour homme edp bottle is more beautiful, and is also refillable, something that the sushi isn`t. I`m very disappointed with this one...

    Scent, the Opium pour homme edp version is closer to Sushi Imperiale than the EDT version, which is woodier on me and has less spices.
    But, if you still want to buy it, the Bois 1920 line is available now at www.fragrancenet.com with a lower price than in other sites. It is still a high value, but, besides the lower price than in luckyscent, you can also find coupon codes at internet which give you 15% discount and helps bois 1920 fragrances to be a little more cheaper.

    I tried Sushi Imperiale recently, loving the top notes... but didn't like the drydown at all. I wonder what I'd think of Opium PH.

    I thought Penhaligons LP No 9 for Men was a copy of Opium pour Homme?

    I tried Sushi Imperiale a while back and also found it very similar to Opium Pour Homme Eau D'Orient. You're very right about the Opium similarity!

    I thought LPN9 smelled like Egoiste.
