MFK APOM Pour Homme
I love RM but I have serious longevity issues with it, might be the weather in London, might be my skin, not sure. I've switched to New Haarlem for now but can imagine it being incredibly cloying in the summer. So like the title says, anything out there with a similar vibe to RM with better longevity? Don't say Le Male, that gives me a headache.
MFK APOM Pour Homme
It's very similar to my nose. I get around 6-8hrs from both of them.
How about 1725 Casanova? Worth trying out?
My current top ten:
1. Spice and Wood
2. 34 Boulevard Saint Germain
3. Noir De Noir
4. Tobacco Vanille
5. Musc Ravageur
7. Dior Homme Intense
8. L'air Du Desert Marocain
9. Ambre 114
10. Plum Japonais
I don't think APOM smells much like Reflection, but it's a nice frag none the less, certainly worth a look if you haven't checked it out. And it seems a few cats think it smells like Reflection, which as I said, I just don't see. I haven't found a suitable stand-in for Reflection, but when I wanna go with something that has a similar vibe (but doesn't smell like Reflection), I'll wear Original Santal.

Creed's Original Santal, to some degree.
Bought decants of both Original Santal and APOM, will let you know what I think.
Also worth checking out (not the 'same' as Reflection, but with a similar vibe IMO)
Fleur du Male
Prada Amber PH
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml

Original Santal was alright, it almost singed my nose hairs off at first sniff, you really have to let it settle. I guess it does have a similar vibe to Reflection Man, but it's not nearly as interesting.
APOM I did not like at all, maybe it's my skin and the fact that I used a dabber, but I got a baby oil vibe with it. Smells nothing like Reflection Man to me.
How about Antico Caruso? Can this be compared to RM?
Are you absolutely sure about those longevity issues with Reflexion? I was most surprised to hear that. Don't have a broad enough scentabulary to suggest another, sorry.

Looked for Varvatos Artisan for several months to then find it to be one of the most simple citrus drugstore fragrances ever made
