    Default Alternatives to Paco Rabanne 1 Million.

    I've found a few alternatives to One Million that smell almost identical on the opening.

    1) The first one is Carlos Santana for Men, i did a review on this one if you'd like to see it. This is a great one for sure and smells like One Million on the opening without the harsh leather notes. It's also in the bargain bin at only $20 or so.

    2)Don't hate me for this but...Axe Anarchy for him. This one smells close to exactly like One million but softer and more subtle. It's actually the only Axe that is pleasant, its worth a try trust me. Especially for the $4 price tag.

    Santana? Really? I get a cherryade vibe from Santana. 1 Million alternatives, I'd say:

    Lapidus - Black Soul Imperial
    Bandares - The Golden Secret

    Yeah, Santana deffinately has a similar feel imo. It smells like candied cherries and bubblegum on my skin.

    I see what you mean with the bubblegum. Santana feels much lighter than 1 Million though and isn't half as strong. It's definitely a nice budget scent. Can't go wrong for the price.

    Yeah, its deffinately lighter and not as potent. Certainly a nice budget scent indeed.

    I get strong similarities to 1 Million from Old Spice After Hours deodorant.

    There's a matching body spray as well, in case one is interested.
