    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?

    This pretty much sums up my feelings on H.M. I'm wearing it today And loving every minute.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    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.
