    Default If you like X try Y

    Based on a recent observation pending the arrival of some new fragrances and testing of my bottle of M7 Oud Absolu I was going to post a thread suggesting that those who like it try Graphite by Montana, but figured the general concept but make a good thread itself.

    So, simply put, if someone likes a particular fragrance, suggest a scent with a simmilar character, notes, or which pleases in a simmilar fashion or does the same job. You could suggest a lower-cost alternative or a superior higher-cost alternative. For example if you like Eau des Baux you might like Tom Ford's TV or vice-versa. Don't limit yourself to things which are reputed to smell the same; this need not be about that.

    If you like Bond no 9 Eau de New York you are sure to like Art of Shaving Lemon being that they smell almost exactly the same and the AoS is a lot cheaper.
