    Another vote for Ted Lapidus' Black Soul. And maybe John Varvatos too.

    I'm holding onto my bottle until 'they' move onto something else. I sense it'll be Spicebomb which they'll move to. In which case, I'll have to put SB on the sidelines

    PI by Givenchy is just as gross.

    I was out in a club last night, must have smelled 1 Million on eight different people, very, very strong from a big distance. Acqua di Gio was a big presence in there too. I really would advise people to stop buying 1 Million if you live in the UK, every man and his dog is wearing it at the moment.

    Many SAs push One Million like mindless zombies at lots of fragrance shops, so it probably is a huge bestseller. I wouldn't be surprised if indeed everytime you thought you were smelling One Million, you actually were smelling it.

    Spicebomb has a bubblegum vibe like 1 Million, but it's a different bubble gum. Whereas 1 Million smells like pink, fruity gumball machine bubble gum, Spicebomb is a little more like Big League Chew.

    Fact - women LOVE 1 Million.

    I was having a discussion with one girl who was wondering what the hell it was in 1 Million that had that effect on her (I couldn't advise on what the mystery note).

    Treat it with disdain if you wish, but it may be your loss.

    St Dupont Passenger & Bijan B Exquisite. B Exquisite is actually gonna be one of my next purchases, I find it to be a more tamed and more refined version of 1 Million, there's a leather note in there that goes well with the sweet and spicy notes.

    I also agree with Banderas The Secret. It opens up very much like 1 Million, but as it dries, it has this odd mossy/leather accord that is just kinda ugly, beware of it.

    6+ month thread bump, I know...

    A lot of disdain being thrown around here. Maybe I'd feel the same way if I'd smelled it on everybody around me, but I live in a small town and NOBODY around here knows what in the world the fragrance "One Million" is. Loving it.

    Passion Man - Franck Olivier. A cinnamon bomb, with green apple and pink pepper adding some allure and making it better than One Million, IMO.

    The real title of this thread should be What Doesn't Smell Like 1 Million. It seems every scent coming out is compared to 1 Million.

    Nothing wrong with one million. It is one of the worlds top selling fragrances. It has become a victim of its own fame. Europeans like Americans, continue to purchase this fragrance at well above average rates.

    Cuba Royal smells like 1 Millions top notes, but that's all you get. It doesn't progress to the base, but simply stays linear for a couple of hours and dies away.

    Givenchy Pi smells like One Million's refined uncle. Surprisingly enough, when my counter was out of Pi I had a lot of those looking for Pi buy One Million. It's not terrible juice, but if you have just smelled it on a card right out of the bottle I can see why you hate it. This is one that I have to spray the air and bring the blotter card thru the mist. It makes a big difference. Like others have said it seems to be well received by those around you when you're wearing it. It's a club/ look at me type of scent. And there isn't anything wrong with that.

    THIS. Its sweetness is like a jackhammer to my nose. 1 Million is a huge hit with teens and early 20s, not that it's limited to that group, but the presentation alone speaks to who the targeted customers are.

    Young tastes trend very sweet, and 1 Million is a bona-fide hit. See also: Guilty, with a bottle shaped like a flask (though more tastefully done, IMHO, than 1 Million's cheesy gold brick).

    There's a lot to like with 1 Million, but I can't handle that much sweetness (nor the presentation).

    Interesting though is that in Europe, many gentlemen over 50 are fond of One Million. Prior to becoming available in the USA, men of all ages throughout Europe were enjoying the fragrance and continue to do so.

    in England whats famous for a replacement is the even cheaper Marks and Spencer HOMME - monster sillage - i find Carolina Herrera 212 VIP MEN also somewhat similar, if not louder than 1 Million.
