    Default What is it that I'm smelling...

    For some reason Tuscan Leather, Aventus, and Terre D'Hermes all have a very similar smell. There's a certain vibe I get from all of them that puts them all into the same category in my opinion. Any ideas on what it is I'm smelling, and what other fragrances would fit into this category? I'm thinking it might be the woody/smokey smell, but I'm not sure.

    Perhaps Iso-E? It's a chemical that doesn't have a huge profile itself, but imparts a certain woodiness and brilliance. Very evident in TdH, but likely Tuscan Leather has some, though TL is primarily a leather to my nose.

    An Iso-E bomb is Lalique Encre Noire. It's quite different, it's a fresh vetiver, but if you feel something in common then it must be it.

    I forgot to mention Encre Noire I get a similar vibe to these as well, but not as much. Might just be the Iso-E. Is there Iso-E in Aventus?

    Terre D'Hermes and Aventus to me don't smell anything alike.

    When I first smelled Aventus I thought "hmmm... Creed does Terre, and a chunk of pineapple." So yes, I get that. But the Tuscan Leather connection never occurred to me.

    Don't know if there is iso-e in Aventus, I haven't put it on skin. But likely there is. It is quite common in modern masculines.

    It's not so much that they smell the same, but just have similar vibes. They pack the same punch when you smell them. It's hard to explain really.
