Not to me.
Thread: Coromandel and LiDGE
Any similarities to these two fragrances? By the looks of it they have similar notes with the citrus in the opening, jasmine, and a cocoa/chocolate dry down. I just purchased LIDGE a few days ago, but I was just curious if there was any similarities for future reference.
Not similar at all IMO. Though they share some chocolate and patchouli in the ingredient list, they give off a totally different scent when put together. Both are excellent.
own LIDGE and got a sample of Coromandel when purchasing Sycomore. So have sampled these together, one on each hand.
IMO they have a lot in common, the patchouli / cocoa notes are in both, but LIDGE some citrus on top, and Coromandel has more of a classic Chanel floral backing.
Both wonderful, and would have a place in any collection, but I'm happy with only LIDGE for the time being.
To be honest if I was going to get another patchouli/chocolate frag it would be Borneo 1834. Had a sample I this and loved it. Like being lost in a dank, dark & humid jungle... In other words wonderful. Same nose as Coromandel - Christopher Sheldrake.

Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
Both awesome. Have both of them in my collection and wear them a lot in winter.
And LOVE 'em both. Loads of compliments as well...
None at all.
Fine fragrance is alive; it breathes, unfolds and unravels with each passing hour....
Have them both, love them both, but they are not similar at all.
Not even a little. Well, I suppose Lidge can be powdery like Coromandel, but that's about it.
