    Default Roma Uomo vs. Sculpture vs Minotaure

    My experiences with Minotaure have always left me disappointed and unfulfilled. For this reason, I've always wanted to find something similar but with more strength (the smell itself is fine). I read in various places that Roma Uomo and Sculpture are similar but better for different reasons, so I looked into both.

    After having sampled all three, I'm still unsatisfied. I can safely say that Roma is much closer to Minotaure than Sculpture; however, Roma is flat and banal, where as Minotaure sparkles and bears a uniquely Mediterranean aroma. Sculpture manages to smell different than either of the other two, with a strong floral and citrus composition that's bright (almost like Minotaure's sparkle) and Mediterranean in feel, but it ends up being too linear and sweet with little complexity. I must applaud Sculpture for its tenacity - it lasts quite well with minimal application.

    I just wish there was a suitable Minotaure alternative. Thoughts?

    Lanvin Avant Garde

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Lacoste pour Homme is a very close to both Roma Uomo and Minotaure, possibly more to the latter.

    Although different, Sculpture is better than the other two IMO.

    I like Roma Uomo and Sculpture, but have only tested Minotaure, and that was a long time ago - from memory it was a much richer scent. Others you may want to check out, because they're similar in style to Sculpture are Diesel Plus Plus, Man Aubusson and Fred Hayman Touch for Men - but they're not like Minotaure.

    After have been researching LOTS I decided I am going to get one of this fragances: either L'anarchiste de Caron or Minotaure Paloma Picasso. Witch one is more wearable for any occasion? How strong are they in comparaison? Prices are more or less the same... I also like Caron because I love that house, but that is not a reason really... I know they are both uniques and specials and maybe more summer scents but I just need a bit more advise. Thanks in advance.
