    Default A*men Vs Cuba Prestige : Alternative to higher price fragrance

    I wanted to let my fellow basenoter's know and be aware that there are really good alternatives to the higher price department fragrance line. Cuba Prestige is one of them. Note: I am not a big fan of Angel men but I did receive a sample when I bought my last fragrance at sephora and after testing it out Cuba prestige smells exactley like Angel men I mean verbratum and Prestige has the same longevity and projection as angel man. Angel man cost to or up too the 100's you can buy Cuba Prestige for like 10 bucks at most discount retailers. So if you like Angel man and don't want to pay the hefty price tag reach for Cuba Prestige for it is a safe alternative to Angel.

    Don't think I've smelled the one you're talking about but I've smelled a few of these Cuba frags and IMO they do not compare at all to their counterparts. Truly horrendous stuff.

    Totally agree with you but I think prestige is an exception to the rule. I was trully schocked to be honest with you. I have smelled other cuba line and was not a fan but this one took me by surprise after sniffing this one and A*men and seeing how close they were.

    No, I've smelled red and gold and probably a few others...that was enough for me lol. Is the prestige packaged in a cigar bottle?

    yea but not a single cigar. It looks like three cigars joined together with a frosted looking bottle. I'm hoping other basenoters will not be embarressed to say they have tried this and comment lol

    I own Prestige. It is close to A*Men but not exact. Some similarities and a great alternative if you don't want to spend a lot of money. Actually got Cuba Prestige for $7.99 @ TJ Maxx.

    That being said... A*Men is still superior.
    My top 5 changes like the Tennessee weather.

    Had to look that bottle up. Easily beats the single cigar ones.


    Only have tried Gold which I didn't like, reluctant to try another Cuba.
