    Default Boucheron Pour Homme

    My father usually wears Boucheron Pour Homme, but for this christmas i was thinking of maybe giving him something else. Since he really likes this one I wonder if there is something similar to BPH but maybe not as strong.
    Thanks in advance!

    Truly Boucheron is in a league of its own. Ive never really smelled anything like it but may I suggest that you try out more from the Boucheron house. Jaipur is just as wonderful as Boucheron. Something i can probably recommend is Kenzo Power. Its a bit subtle and has a flower citrusy feel to it. Its quite nice.

    I have a couple of suggestions, and I'm listing the notes so you can see where/how I think they are similar fragrances. All three should be readily available (although the Colonia Essenza might be a bit harder to come by). The Eau Savage might be too lemony, and you might think it's too strong; so I'd lean towards the Colonia.

    top note Verbena, Bergamot, Seville orange, Basil;
    middle note Ylang-ylang, Rose, Lily of the valley, Carnation;
    base note Vetiver, Sandal, Oakmoss, Benzoin

    Eau sauvage by Dior

    top note
    Lemon, Petitgrain, Rosemary, Basil

    middle note
    Jasmine, Rose, Carnation, Orris

    base note
    Oakmoss, Vetiver, Musk

    Colonia Essenza by Acqua Di Parma

    top note
    Lemon, Mandarin Orange, Orange, Grapefruit, Petit-Grain, Neroli, Bergamot

    middle note
    Rosemary, Jasmine, Clove, Lily-of-the-Valley, Rose

    base note
    Patchouli, Vetiver, White Musk, Amber

    Colonia by Acqua Di Parma

    top note
    Bergamot, Lemon, Orange

    middle note
    Lavender, Bulgarian Rose, Ylang Ylang

    base note
    Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Cedar

    Seconded. Also, in the same spirit as BpH, if not necessarily the same fragrance category, Givenchy Gentleman or (perhaps) Guerlain Heritage.

    How about YSL Haute concentre Pour Homme. Something also like Annick Goutal Eau D'hadrien. These are different but may be of interest to try.

    Maybe you laugh at this, but i see a few similarities between BPH and Open by Roger & Gallet. BPH has more citrus notes, and sharper. I think maybe Open be what you need.

    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks

    Monsieur De Givenchy is a good alternative for one who likes Boucheron Pour Homme
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
