    Default Fragrances similar to Encre Noire?

    Hey guys, Encre Noire has become my favorite fragrance and I was wondering if you had any recommendations for fragrances that are similar to EN. I bought a sample of Sycomore recently and I like it, but I still much prefer Encre Noire. To me Encre Noire is a lot darker, wetter, and earthier (especially at the start).

    If you already tried Sycomore, I agree that Route De Vetiver could be an option.

    Encre Noire is quite unique in this regard (dark, wet, earthy). You won't find any other vetiver that will beat EN in this game.

    Definitely try Wonderwood. Very similar in genre to EN.

    The only one that I can see a similarity with is Sycomore although I do like the other choices mentioned.

    Encre Noire has the same structure of Sycomore but has some synthetic, Iso-E dark background, whereas Sycomore is more natural smelling. Then perhaps rather than vetiver per se, you should look for these dark synthetics. I'm wondering whether you'd be a good client for the powerful, scary Histoire de Parfums Petroleum, which smells like entering a dark, humid cave full of mold and minerals.

    LesNez Turtle Vetiver Front smells a little like it but without the ink note. Villoresi Vetiver is worth a try for vetiver that is on the cool and dark side, a bit. Nothing is just like Encre Noire.
