    Default Similar to Hanae Mori H.M., but better?

    I like Hanae Hori H.M. and I get excellent feedback if I wear it on a date... but I can't help thinking there must be something kind of similar, more or less, that I'd love.

    Can you point me in the direction of scents I should try? Thanks! And happy new year!

    There is nothing like HM. If there were, it wouldn't be better. HM is a masterpiece and is perfectly made. Plus it's cheaply priced and lasts forever, so what more could you want?

    Can't think of anything similar, sorry. This is a terrible fragrance IMO. Unbearably sweet and synthetic lemon. Last time I wore it, I think it gave me a cavity.

    I'm with you on this one JH. This stuff is horrible IMO. If there is something out there similar, let me know so I won't buy it. I'm serious! For those who enjoy it, no disrepect. Enjoy!

    I really didn't care for that sweet lemon opening. Can't say I've smelled anything that was quite like it.

    Ouch. My apologies LBI, I must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed that day!

    Kerosene Unknown Pleasures kinda has the same vibe - sweet gourmandish lemon.

    HA! No worries. I still really enjoy Hanae Mori HM (the EdT, specifically), and as I said a year and a half ago in the original post, I get such good feedback when I wear it.
