When I went to perfumania the other day, this really came off as too woodsy/spicey for me. However, minutes later, I smelt this great sweet cherry note in the medley of warm sweet spices. Really nice.
Longevity wasn't amazing, so I'm wondering if there's other similar fragrances with a really warm, sweet cherry note in there. Not overly sweet, because the spices balance it out just right. So warm and cuddly. I wanted to just cuddle myself by a fireplace
Yeah, definitely check out John Varvatos. Also, I recommend giving M7 a whirl. It certainly conjures up a fireplace vibe.
I do believe it is less sweet than the other two as well.
Which JV? Original?
The original John Varvatos certainly should be considered if you like Burberry London.
I have thought about this for the day, and can come up with only one rec :
Bogart pour Homme.
It doesn't smell just like Burberry London, but you can say it shares that certain warm sweet cherry smell.
Good luck !

great suggestions, thank you. any more? I'm probably going to check these out tomorrow sometime. If I like any, I'll buy them over London. But I wonder if those above are testable at nordstroms?
