    When it comes to fairly basic "modern" fougeres, I'd just reach for Lomani. Solid and super cheap.

    Just curious, is this actually close to PE? I own Lomani and think that it is okay, although I haven't spent any real time with it. I've never smelled PE.

    Not sure which Lomani he is actually talking about since there are more than ten on the men's side. IMO Lomani Volcano smells pretty close and as are all Lomani fragrances, inexpensive.

    I've read that Live Jazz by Yves Saint Laurent is very close but I've never tried it myself.
    She gets a special cologne. It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. Yep, it's made with bits of real panther so you know it's good.
    Currently wearing: Sung Homme by Alfred Sung

    Ah.... thanks. I'll have to look into that one. The one I have is the original Lomani pour homme and seems like an acirid lavender.

    Lomani smells nothing alike IMO. I think A&F Fierce, Cool Water and Joop! Nightflight are all 'similar,' but I haven't found anything 'really close.'

    I see that they have an auction for 4 ml minis of Platinum Egoiste on ebay for less than 6 dollars each. I grabbed myself a bottle.
    Don't miss out!

    Funny you ask me when I got two of them.
    Real close deals with Egoiste Platinum that I found in my collection are very rare scents:
    Messer Jacopo by Torrini (Florentian jewellery)
    Succes fou for men by Marcella Wouters (Belgium)
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    I have also heard A&F Fierce although I haven't compared it myself. I did not find YSL Live Jazz to be similar, personally.

    To me, Curve for Men smells almost identical to the drydown of PE.

    It's a matter of sensitivity, and there is no way to know where the OP stands. If he is a "newbie" and hasn't smelled many frags, Lomani (the original, 1987 I think) might smell better to him than PE. If he is responding to a particular note in PE that is weak or absent in Lomani, then he would find it lacking. If he wants a bunch of slightly different fougeres and has limited money to spend, Lomani is a very good option. If the OP could be more specific, then those who respond can be too.

    Lomani goes for a grassy vetiver eventually, though within a fougere context, for those who don't know From what I remember, PE is richer and nicely balanced, and probably more "natural" as well, though Lomani doesn't have a "synthetic" feel.

    I found some similarities with Carthusia Uomo and Platinum Egoiste. I tested Carthusia Uomo some time ago and its drydown reminded clearly Platinum Egoiste, at least for my nose.

    I just tested my mini of Platinum Egoiste. I thought it was similar to Calvin Klein Eternity myself. I look at the note pyramid and see some similar notes as well (geranium, lavender).

    to me it smells similar to Paco XS...both have a metallic vibe to it... and a airy, golden yellow aura...only XS is sweeter

    I definitely agree with jenson re Paco XS and BradW re Eternity.
    Ergo... it also smells like Himalaya, but with much greater presence and longevity.
    Someone mentioned Cool Water and Nightflight. Can't see that at all, I'm afraid.

    To my nose Live Jazz en Platinum Egoiste smell nothing alike. I think it's pretty hard to come up with something that is similar to Platinum Egoiste,,,but than again one PE is more than enough.

    +1 for Eternity for Men and XS pour Homme. I'll add Hugh Parsons Blue.

    Curve, Cool Water and Platinum Egoiste are all starting to smell the same to me!

    When I first came to Basenotes I remember this topic showing up at times.....It seems I remember basenoters back then saying that Chrome is a nice companion to PE.....I seem to remember saying this myself.....PE is fantastic and could easily be my favorite Chanel.....Check out Chrome and see what You think!!!

    The one that is closest to me is:

    Gianfranco Ferre For Man

    But be careful, Platinum has been reformulated. Old bottles will smell better.

    Interesting, i didnt know it was reformulated. Any way to tell the difference between a old bottle and new one?

    Maitre Garrigue (PE's masculine deadringer father)
    Abercrombie Fierce (loud cousin)
    Claiborne Curve (kind, younger cousin)

    and to a lesser degree:

    CK Eternity for men
    Paco Rabanne XS
    Czech&Speake Oxford & Cambridge
    Currently wearing: Royal Mayfair by Creed

    I agree with the CK Eternity for men comparison, and I also found YSL L'Homme to be similar too.

    I am still quite new to this. I am not sure if I am right. But try Kenzo Pour Homme. For me they have the same vibe.
