    Default Anything similar to Rive Gauche

    I'm a huge fan of Rive Gauche (YSL) I prefer the original version while I own the light and intense versions of this amazing scent. I believe Rive Gauche is quite unique and I never smelled anything like it, I would like to check out some other scents which come close to it.

    I heard some suggestions:

    - AZZARO PH
    - Paco Rabanne PH
    - Truefitt & Hill Grafton
    - No 88 Czech & Speake
    - Aramis Tuscany
    - Helmut Lang EDC
    - XPEC Original

    Which ones should I definitely check out, are there other fragrances a Rive Gauche fan would like? Thanks!

    Azzaro Ph is much brighter and has a musky soapy character while having the same aromatic vibe as Rive Gauche. If you like Rive Gauche I would be surprised if you did not like Azzaro as it is a scent that is easy to love. Check out the reviews.

    That is one heck of a list and aside the Grafton, which I dont know, I highly recommend trying all of them.
    Why exactly do you like Rive Guache?
    Because of it's character, in which case that Gentlemens collection is as a whole recommendable, or rather because of a certain note/vibe that Rive Gauche carries?

    Azzaro's pretty similar, except it doesn't have that whole soapy/powder angle but the spices are similar.

    No 88's also along the same lines although it's a little 'darker' IMO and less spicey more floral.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Anything you listed here except Helmut Lang wich is more of a clean musk with no spices (maybe some herbs like rosemary). I also second Pluran's suggetion on Or Black and Gucci Nobile (if you don't mind the fact that Nobile is discreet and understated).
