    Default Similar scents to Gucci Nobile?

    Hi everybody

    any suggestions for a similar scent to Gucci Nobile beside knock-offs? I'm running very low on it and it became quite hard to find lately...

    Nobile Royalty apparently is an "homage" to it.

    Gucci Nobile is somewhat unique IMO.

    Do you not think it's similar enough then? Are you not happy with it? Or are you just looking for another one that is similar?

    (I'm genuinely interested to hear your thoughts, I'm thinking of getting it)
    I wanna say something. Im gonna put it out there. If you like it, you can take it, if you dont, send it right back."

    It's actually very similar but it's unavailable in italy. The Nobile Royalty definitely has some variation, but for the price (really regardless of the price) is also a well crafted wonder in my opinion. I think it has slightly more Oakmoss and Musk, and the tobacco is greener, but all in all, its a great wear. I had a bottle as a gift from a firend from San Francisco and as I'm running very low I was thinking about another alternative.

    Marginally, Loewe para Hombre shares a slight similarity

    Although I've never tried it, the reviews would indicate that Sergio Tacchini shares similarities to Nobile.

    I might agree with Loewe or Loewe Essencia. But you should really look into Houbigant Duc de Vervins...pretty close as far as I'm concerned. Big, strong, and green.

    I thought Truefitt & Hill Grafton was a green soapy scent with a nice masculine feel as well, though not as elegant as Nobile.

    Good news for me. I probably found an acceptable alternative to Gucci Nobile: Tsar. While The former is definitely unique I find The latter to share many similarities with this outstanding composition. It's surely louder but I can bypass this aspect by simply going lighter on The trigger.

    +1 one on Duc de Vervins.

    Soprani Uomo is also bang on, though more patchouli in the dry down.

    +1 Nobile Royalty, though it smells cheaper and thinner.

    I don't find Esencia Loewe that similar to the Gucci . . . the Gucci has a good dose of leather and Esencia has none or next to none, among other things.

    Boss Spirit is, for my nose, similar to Nobile with leather. Boss Spirit can be as hard to find which does not help. If you can find it, I say give it a go!

    Nothing IMO.
    it's really the one of the Icon of 20 century masculine scents.
    Pity that it's not long lasting on my skin.
    Bought 1 liter of this stuff and happy with it

    Peace be unto the many opinions registered.
    On my skin, Nobile Royalty is a thin and attenuated scent, somewhat synthetic and barely reaches an approximation of Nobile after about two hours of burn-off.
    Tsar is a lovely scent but it is more piney and green, more "open" than Nobile.
    No one has mentioned an affordable scent -- 1903 by J. Peterman. That is only available online, but believe me, it is a reasonable and totally affordable best alternative to the majestic, old-school Nobile.

    I do not know if anybody else has put this connection together but after having got to know Gucci Nobile a bit the scent started to smell like something I really recognized! "Gillette" aftershave? The Gillette aftershave gel particularly.. The cheap $2.50 blue bottle of Gillette aftershave gel.. The scent of the gel has a lot in common with Nobile.. Besides that I would say that I do see a similarity to Drakkar Noir also but Drakkar is dark and leathery whereas Nobile is brighter and fresher without the leather..

    The closest fragrance I have found to Gucci Nobile is the knock-off by Palermo: http://www.palermoperfumes.com.au/nobile-by-gucci/
    IMO, it is quite close.
