    Default Bois Du Portugal by Creed and Le 3 Homme by Caron similarities?

    Today I am giving full wearing to Bois Du Portugal, I got sample yesterday from Neiman.
    And I can smell some similarities with Le 3 Homme, its' that powdery smell that I know too well from Third Man.

    Does anybody else see these similarities or it's only me.

    Final Word - I got rid of the Third Man because I couldn't get over that powdery note.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    Yeah I'll bite, I kind of see it. I was actually thinking about this the other night while sampling Third Man. I had word Bois du Portugal the day before, and the similarities struck me.

    The lavender at the top of 3me was really coming out sharply, and I was getting a lot more woods than usual (the florals are usually more dominant to me). On that particular wearing, it reminded me of BdP. Of course there are major differences, but I can see the comparison.

    In my case, it was due more to the lavender and woods, and not the powdery notes you notice, which to me are quite different (BdP's powder seems a lot drier, while Third Man's powder seems to be more the result of musks and florals).

    I've got to be honest, I wear 3rd Man often and never bring to mind BdP when wearing it. BdP is closer to Heritage (which I prefer) or New York by PdN except that BdP has a smokier drydown.
    In a world where people smell bad, it is the personal responsibility of every Basenoter to improve the world one SotD at a time...

    Similar - maybe cousins. However I would say that PDN New York is a brother to Creed BdP.

    However, I see in a darker or bitter Tiffany for men a brother to Creed BdP
