    Purely my opinion... I am a fan of Terre d'Hermes but to me A*Men smells like liquid garbage.

    I don't see any similarities personally. Take a men, take out the heavy tar opening, take out the patchouli and the creamy gourmand qualities in the dry down, add vetiver, dirty citrus notes, flint and a touch of pure earth. You have taken everything that is amen out of amen and now created terre d'hermes. But you can do this with any two fragrances that are opposites.

    For the record ill take TdH.

    Patchouli. Terre feels like A*men in cooler/colder weather, when (I've noticed) the patchouli in it becomes more prominent. In summer Terre is nothing like it. In fact it's nothing like any other thing I've smelled.

    All said, I'll take TdH over A*men anyday. Smooth, natural, versatile. And fills you with confidence.

    I find A*Men far more unique and interesting. Both great scents though. Dont see much similarity.

    Based on your analogy, all scents would be similar to other scents in a way or another .

    So i don't agree with you .

    While I love Terre d'Hermes, I very much dislike A*Men, so my short answer is: no way !

    On a similar note, if you take the tobacco and vanilla notes out of Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille and replace them with pineapple and smokey leather, it would smell just like Creed Aventus.

    Not really, maybe only if the chocolate note is taken away and, aside from orange, much more vetiver is added

    Take the chocolate note out of A*men, and you are going to have something that smells a bit like B*men.

    I tried A Men Pure Shot yesterday.
    After 10 minutes or so, it reminded me strongly of TdH.

    I don't find much similarities between regular A Men and TdH, though.

    and if you take the Aldehydes, Spices, Pink pepper, Sandalwood, Tobacco, Violet, Vetiver, Juniper, and Cypress notes out of Chanel's Sycomore, does anyone else get "water"?

    Maybe it's just me...

    Reverse this for me and agreed, nothing alike at all, not even close. But I've seen and made worse comparisons. Lol
