    Creed Original Santal and Mont Blanc Individuel are incredibly close, I'd say 99% as well.
    Rive Gauche PH and Ruehl No 925 Signature are near identical at 99.9% similar.

    Mont Blanc Legend, to me, smells identical to Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce.. So much that I had to exchange Legend because A&F lasts longer on my skin and dries down better.

    I was thinking the same thing. I didn't mention it because it's not my top pick, but no doubt they are very close.

    Completely agree. Smelt this in Selfridges the other day and the SA was babbling on about how unique it was, and the first thing I said was "It really reminds me of Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford". She went quiet... Her stall wasn't selling any of the (much cheaper) Tom Ford Private Blend range.

    Caesars Man and Drakkar Noir are very close. CM is a little greener but for those who know Drakkar only casually, you could get away with the much cheaper Caesars.

    That's so interesting! This is one I've been meaning to try. JHAG's Not a Perfume is listed as "for women" whereas Molecule 02 is listed as unisex. I realize that's just marketing, but still, it's interesting. I guess it's impossible to prevent anyone from selling diluted Ambroxan as a scent.

    Personally, I don't find them to be that similar. AHS has a more fruity/citric candy sweetness whereas Vph is floral. Both are worth sampling, that's for sure!

    Chanel Allure Homme & Polo Big Pony #4. There is a central accord that's very similar for both, though CAH has more complexity or "decoration" surrounding the center.

    For me, Gucci pour Homme II has a similar center, but it is much more complex than the above, so much so that the "decoration" predominates much of the time.

    I would like to know if that's really an "accord" I'm smelling as the dominant thing, or is it one specific note.
