    Question The Best Knock Off?

    What are the best knock off colognes of other colognes that you have smelt ...ever.

    For me personally would be Perry Ellis - Red 360 and acqua di dio . . .My personal take is that Red 360 does it better (taking in consideration of price too).

    Hmm, maybe Perry Ellis 360 White? But Cuba Gold is another favorite in this category too.

    It depends upon what you mean by a knockoff, because it's common for a perfumer to do a similar frag for another house/company, and it may be priced lower. As far as ones I consider true knockoffs, I'd say an old bottler of Mustang by Dorall, which is good enough for me (Polo type frag), meaning I feel no need to get a bottle of "real" Polo, which may have been reformulated badly anyway.

    Nobile Royalty is a great knock off of Gucci Nobile. Scary good.

    Creed's Millesime Imperial did a piss poor job of copying Sean Jean's masterpiece Unforgivable. Not even close. *SMH*

    Also, Cuba Orange is a dead ringer for Dunhill Desire.

    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    Juicy Couture's Dirty English is a far (FAR) superior version of Gucci Pour Homme (IMO).
