    Default Azzaro PH and Rive Gauche?

    Are there enough differences in these two fragrances to own/use both? I already have the former and have been thinking about purchasing the later. I know it's pretty inexpensive, but I don't want to buy something that is too much like something I already have. Thanks.

    I own both and feel like they are different enough to own them. I don't think Rive Gauche when smelling Azzaro. Rive Gauche turns sweeter.

    They're both fougeres, but they're different enough. RG is cleaner, drier, soapier, Azzaro is more aromatic and richer. I prefer Azzaro, but if you like clean, then there should be space for RG as well.

    I have both, think they are slightly similar, but prefer Azzaro overall.

    They're pretty different to me. Rive Gauche is less a classic fougere that Azzaro. It's soapier and fresher. I prefer it greatly to the Azzaro. I've just given away my Azzaro and consider RG indispensable.

    Wow...its crazy how noses are so different cuz Azzaro smells super old to me and I don't like, had thought about RG but if they are somewhat comparable I guess I shouldn't try.

    I love them both for their similarities, but they are different enough to own both. Especially if you like that classic barbershop vibe.

    RGPH is brighter and fresher, while APH is a little more classic maybe even more elegant. If you didn't like APH, you may still like RG!

    Indeed, different enough to own both.

    I love the Azzaro but RG does nothing for me so I would say different enough to own both.

    Hope you enjoy!

    I would say yes. I like Rive Gauche a little more.
