    Default Byredo Sunday Cologne

    I pulled out a sample I had of this stuff randomly and tried it out... I must say it is VERY nice. Call me crazy but it comes off as slightly Aventus-like. Great projection too.

    Couldn't find too many threads on it, but the reviews are all very positive. Does anyone else have any experience with this cologne???

    Oh... the other problem is that it is very expensive. I was wondering if there are any other fragrances that smell like it, without the hefty price tag. Please don't say Terre d'Hermes, because I don't like it at all (I know people say these smell similar, but I don't get it)

    I've owned an FB of this since it came out and was called Fantastic Man back in 2009. It's very nice and with decent longevity for the citrus cologne it is. Its strong point is definitely the very beautiful opening - the drydown, on the other hand, is really nothing special, IMO.

    If I were to compare Sunday Cologne to anything else on the market that I'm familiar with, it would be Red Vetyver by Montale, although Sunday Cologne is definitely lighter and fresher. FWIW, I don't smell anything similar to Aventus in Sunday Cologne.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Thx for that info. I think it's the blast of bergamot I get that is what reminds me of Aventus. They are very different though.

    I enjoy Sunday cologne, I have a sample and wore it yesterday, it is indeed similar to TdH and Red Vetiver, I only got six hours from it, which was disappointing. I'll certainly give it another wearing to see if that improves. I actually prefer the overall smell to both of it's aforementioned cousins, but without better longevity I wouldn't buy it.

    Two hours is about what I get from Sunday Cologne too. I do much better with Red Vetyver.

    I sampled it a while ago, and didn't find it similar to Aventus at all.

    I really love the opening of bergamot and neroli, but it dries down quite shortly into incense, which I didn't like at all. Short lived and very expensive. I had to pass this one on, I was expecting something more cologne-like: this one is more toward incense fragrances

    Yes, I am a fan. As I like incense, I enjoy the whole experience, which I have found to be sufficiently long lasting.

    I have to agree with both of you.
    We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.

    Most Byredo's don't last too long

    +1 Red Vetyver (harsher, longer-lasting)
    Yardley Citrus & Wood (cheaper and cheaper-smelling but not bad)

    Can't believe you don't smell the resemblance to Terre...

    I think I have to try Red Vetyver, or maybe even give TdH another try. I always thought TdH smelled like sweat...
