    Default What else smells like One Million?

    Ever since I moved to London, everywhere I go I seem to smell men wearing a nasty scent with massive sillage and projection - and it reminds me a lot of One Million by Paco Rabanne. But worse than I ever thought that smelled. (It happened 3 times today. The other day in the cinema I had to move because it was so obnoxiously overpowering and must have had a 10 metre radius!)

    Now I own a bottle of one million, (though I didn't bring it with me) and I always liked it, never *thought* it was too strong or obnoxious while I was wearing it.

    My question is there something else really common, like maybe a body spray, that smells similar, and that I could be mistaking for one million?

    Or is this scent really ubiquitous and repellent?

    Some people no doubt will feel this way. I kind of like it also, but am at a loss to suggest something similar.

    The new Antonio Banderas scent, The Secret, is very similar to 1 Million.

    To me, Ted Lapidus Black Soul is a better, more refined One Million.

    +1 Carlos Santana. Doesn't last as long, but for the price you could buy 4 bottles.

    Could possibly be the new Gucci Guilty for men. It reminds me a bit of One Million, but doesn't particularly strike me as offensive. Just boring.

    Yes, it's either this (Lynx Excite as it's known if you're in London)... or it's someone that's been using Lynx for years, got used to emptying half a can a day on themselves... and have just bought 1 Million or Only the Brave

    Fragbombing seems to be common in the UK. Honestly, I've seen guys in department stores here go up to the Le Male tester bottle and dump 10 sprays on themselves, then their girlfriends nuzzle in and say "very nice". I'm always surprised that these women don't start choking...

    I am in London on visit too and noticed the exact same thing. Random wafts of 1 Million everywhere, people love this stuff here. I enjoy the scent but will stick to wearing it in Canada where its a bit more below the radar.

    Wow! I didn't think anyone else would notice the similarities between these two. Difference is though, ANs isn't anywhere near as sweet as OM. It's more "clean" in an almost chlorine pool water way, while One Million is more candy sweet.

    I smelled the Lynx, it might be that but it was hard to say for sure. I like the term fragbombed.

    Do you think if I ask these guys what they are wearing it will encourage them? I'm way too polite to ever tell anyone they've overdone it. And to be honest, I'd spray myself with 10 of one million without thinking anything of it

    The core reason for this thread is to allay my fears that I myself have been guilty of fragbombing, and everyone around me just choked politely into their hankies and never said a word

    When I was working at boots, every chav would come in and spray a TON of Le Male or 1 Million on themselves. 1 Million is horrendous, thankfully we ran out of testers midway through the christmas season so I didn't have to put up with it for too long. It was mainly Le Male or Joop! for the rest of the season

    I think some people thought Antidote by Viktor and Rolf smelled similar to 1 Million?

    I once watched a guy douse himself in 2 sprays of what was easily 20 different frags. I was in awe.

    Nothing, that's what makes 1 Million so special.
