    Question Any male approximate equivalent of Dior Addict?

    After testing Dior Addict extensively for the first time, it struck me that (at least to my nose, my fragrance sense may still be undeveloped, unlearned and undereducated) it's a quite unisex wearable scents, especially among gourmand-style fragrance choices.

    While I may not have problems wearing this, I was only wondering if there is some approximate, even remote male or unisex (irrespective if mass-market/discounter, designer or niche) equivalent of this (because, browsing through the BN directory, haven't seen such flankers of variations of Addict so far). Its notes are great, but with a slight masculine twist, the result would be- in my opinion- stunningly beautiful.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions, hints, insights, advice; feel free to post any opinions on this.

    It would be interesting to know.

    For me, Dior Addict has similarities with Chergui. I know it sounds crazy, but... they are quite close (excepting the initial stage).

    How about What We Do In Paris Is Secret by A Lab on Fire? Ropion is the perfumer.

    Maybe Aomassai from Parfumerie Generale? I've never smelled it, but people describe it in similar ways (smoke, vanilla, incense).

    You want Tonka Imperiale from Guerlain.
    Same perfumer as for Dior Addict: Thierry Wasser.

    I bought a bottle of Addict yesterday. It may lean a little feminine but it was to good to pass up.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. Being a fan of most Serge Lutens and Guerlain scents anyway, it will be easy for me to start testing their more or less similar fragrances. The A Lab on Fire and Aromassai scents will be little bit more difficult, yet not impossible, to test, yet I already have a few basic options to choose from and to expand my horizons into equivalents of Dior Addict.


    Thanks again to everyone!

    Dior Addict is definitely unisex.

    I always thought Givenchy Pi was in a similar league as DA.
    It's been a long hot Summer in Sydney, looking forward to Winter & wearing vanilla fragrances.
