    Lightbulb I LOVE rive Gauche. Which scent would you recommend me also?

    I love this can bottle... Sometimes i think RG is all that i need. I can´t get enough of it. Usually i like those barbershop scents (Caron pour un Homme, Azzaro PH) but i want to go further and wanted to test another scents similar to RG. I read aramis Tuscany is a good one, but is it better than Azzaro pour homme for example? Do you guys can help me with some scent names? Thank you!

    Penhaligon's Sartorial is a lovely fougere with a British tailors twist. I too love Rive Gauche.

    Brut.
    Tuscany is very herbal and not similar to RG to me.

    Prada Amber PH has a bit of a soapy, barbershop type thing going.

    Excellent suggestion. Houbigant Fougere Royale is another good option. Both are so inexpensive....lol!

    These three might be good but also could be step backward towards softer and more gentile fougere fragrances: Caron Pour un Homme, Invasion Barbare and Sartorial. Yes, it has lavender, but what is outstanding about RGPH is the warm spice and the woods base (patchouli). You might try these:

    Divine L' Homme Sage
    Aftelier Parfum Maroc
    Amouage Jubilation XXV
    Creed Bois du Portugal
    Azzaro pour Homme
    Diptyque Eau Lente
    CDG Avignon

    Maybe try Penhaligon's Castile or Douro. Also the Truefitt & Hill and the Geo F. Trumper lines. I've heard that Ruehl No. 925 is very similar to Rive Gauche Pour Homme although I've never tried it myself.

    I'm a barbershopy frag lover as well. RGPH and APH are two of my favorites. Others that are good and give that barbershop vibe for me are Tuscany, Open by Roger & Gallet, Paco Rabanne PH, good old Clubman and Clubman Private Reserve, Brut and of course Old Spice are must haves too. Best thing about all of these, is they are extremely cheap.

    Aramis Tuscany is great. While it's not the same you should sample.

    Any scent where you see 'clean', 'safe for the office', and/or 'barbershop' in the review.

    +1 Invasion Barbare - but I think it is a bit pricey.

    - - - Updated - - -

    If you like the "barbershop" scents you might want to give Pinaud Clubman a try. It's very inexpensive and can be found and the local drugstore. It is a quality cheapie scent that gets many kudos here on Basenotes.
