    Default 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 to me.

    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.

    My scentoscale:

    (Dank Patchouli) > Borneo 1834 - LIDGE - Coromandel < (Soft Cocoa)

    Not even a little. Well, I suppose Lidge can be powdery like Coromandel, but that's about it.

    They'r very different.

    I assure you there is not citrus opening in Coromandel nor any jasmine.
