    Default A natural alternative to Voyage d`Hermes?

    I've just tries Voyage d`Hermes and like it alot but to me it's also too synthetic.
    Can you suggest alternatives that smell similar but also smell very natural?

    If the soft clean musk is the part you like, you might also like Mauboussin Pour Homme, which is the closest thing I've ever smelled to Voyage d'Hermes. However, I can't guarantee that you won't find it just as synthetic, or more. It does have more lavender and spice in it, but the fruity musk part is the same, and dominates. It was composed by Alberto Morillas, so it's a quality juice. But it's modern designer, and therefore you're getting your synthetics, like 'em or not.

    I don't know about it being less synthetic, but Bulgari's Eau Parfumee au Thé Vert Extreme is similar in structure and smell.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Keep in mind that Jean Claude Ellena loves synthetics, and a good majority of his creations use them combined with other natural ingredients. Synthetic materials aren't necessarily a bad thing--- some of the greatest masterpieces created relied heavily on them.

    Perhaps look into some fragrances by Diptyque?

    Bulgari's Pour Homme (original) smells very similar to me. If you add a dash of Cartier Declaration they're almost identical IMO.

    lol, I like how so many of us are referencing Bulgaris. I was going to mention Eau Parfumee Au the Blanc, myself, for that clean white musk note in the base. It smells fairly pure and natural to me. Whatever that means.

    Agree. You could check L'Autre. Another good option, but maybe not easily available in Australia, could be Panama 1924 Millesimè.
