    Default Similar: Fat Electrician and Hermes Vetiver Tonka?

    I've worn these both this week, and while wearing the FE today it struck that both seem very similar to my nose.

    I mean I could tell them apart obviously, but while FE is a little more brash, they both have a vetiver/ vanilla component that fill the same roll.

    Anyone else get this or am I off base?

    I hadn't thought of it but there's definitely a thematic connection because both pair vetiver with sweeter notes, FE with vanilla and the Hermes with tonka. The feel and aroma of the fragrances is quite different. The Hermes borders on gourmand as the vetiver and tonka fuse seamlessly into an accord while the ELdO's vetiver note stays prominent and contrasts with the creamy vanilla underneath. I've long felt Fat Electrician is the modern day Habanita and prefer FE to the Hermes, but both are excellent.

    Great idea comparing these two. Smooth.

    Strangely enough Fat Electrician to my nose is Myrh Ardente on vetiver.
