    Question Similar scent to Mugler A*Men ? Animale Animale or Rochas Men ?

    I wonder if you know of any other frags that smell somewhat similar to Muglers Angel Men

    My brother wants something that smells like Angel Men, but without quite the same heavy sharp topnote.
    He can't find any of the Mugler flankers in any shop, so please do not recommend them (Pure Malt, Pure Coffee, Pure Havana)

    I have recommended him to try Animale Animale, Muglers Ice Men (only flanker he can find available online) and maybe Rochas Men (share some similar notes, like the coffee note)

    Animale Animale & Rochas Man are both good choices. For the sweeter opening I would go for Rochas Man and for a more similar drydown I woulg go for Animale Animale. Actually, I like both of these very much and don't care for A*men at all because it's just to sweet.

    Rochas Man does smell slightly similar. I suggest you try it.. it's definitely a lot smoother than A*Men and doesn't have harsh top notes.
    Current top 3:
    1) Gucci Pour Homme II
    2) Givenchy Play Intense
    3) Dolce & Gabbana The One

    I have never tried Animale Animale, but don't think Rochas Man smells very similar to A*Men. The closest I've found so far is Givenchy Play Intense. It's like a neutered version of A*Men without the opening in your face tar note that I have grown to love.

    Boomer gave great advice here regarding Rochas Man and Animale.

    Your bro may also want to look into Givenchy Play Intense as someone already suggested...it's not as abrasive or as sweet as AMen. It's not as sweet as Rochas or Animale either. It has a nice coffee vanilla combination along with some woods and citrus up top. It's very easy to wear and is well-received by others.

    Something that smells like Angel Men without the tar topnote?

    Answer is clearly Angel (for women).

    I think Animale Animale is like A*men without the strong opening. It's like jumping into the drydown.

    Exactly. If your brother wants something smooth and creamy that smells like Amen without the "challenging" notes, he should try Animale Animale

    I think Armani Attitude starts out with a similar vibe as A*Men, although it diverges in a different, more fresh direction in the drydown. But the coffee and patchouli notes are reminiscent.

    Since A*men is the beast of gourmands I'd say almost any gourmand that's not overly sweet. Rochas Man, Animale Animale, 24 Gold, or Mandarina Duck Pure Black are all good choices.

    You have to try Animale Animale. It smells like what you wished A men smelled like. The tar note in A men seriously smelled like urine when i first smelled it, but AA is a much more refined and smooth version of A men. Reverse that. A men is a much rougher version of animale animale.

    Play Intense by Givenchy - Upon application, one is pleasantly treated to a refreshing duet of nectarous, mandarin tangerine and somewhat tart bergamot. Tumbling to the waiting middle, the citrus mixes with the slightly spicy and fruity pink pepper and coffee tree wood to brew a sweet, cocoa concoction, and flows to the wondrous base. Transitioning, multifaceted labdanum kidnaps the cocoa mixture and morphs the cocoa into a not unpleasant, tar-like, burnt coffee. The syrupy coffee joins with the woody vetiver, the sweet patchouli, the spicy vanilla of the tonka beans, and the soft, balsamic amyris wood to exude an awesome, mocha drydown. A delectable treat, this radiant composition has excellent longevity and very good projection.

    To me, after an hour and a half, Rochas man and A*men are very similar.

    Animale Animale starts out strong, but isn't as potent as the other two after several hours.

    Other similar scents are Givenchy's Play, Play Intense and Very Irresistitible.

    CSP's Amour de Cacao is a very potent chocolate scent that my wife wears, and which some guys think is wearable. I can't quite pick what makes it feminine to my nose, but I don't wear it.

    Renato
