    Default fragrances that smell alike

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum & it's my first post. I'm a beginner in the fragrance collection, & I need help trying to find cheaper fragrances that smell like expensive ones. For example, I know cuba gold smells almost identical to lemale, perry ellis red like aqua di gio, the new one I found is aventus smells like insurrection pure. Can I get your thoughts on others?

    Hi & welcome, mrvega

    We'll move your thread over to our 'Just Starting Out' section as it should have more replies there.
    Thanks.

    Some say Creed Original Santal is like Joop! Homme.

    Creed Green Irish Tweed is like Cool Water.

    I also sense a similarity between Joop Homme and AMen- especially a certain burnt sugar note.

    GIT is like Cool Water indeed. Although the real GIT-fans will scold you for that!
    Comme des Garçons Chalayan smells like Kenzo Air for him in the drydown.
    Now I came across Amouage Memoir Man which smells like Comme des Garçons Hinoki.

    There are many that smell alike, but often there is a lot of difference once you start comparing side by side.

    Mont Blanc INDIVIDUEL =Creeds original Santal
    cool Water = Creeds green Irish tweed

    Btw, similarities are significant on these and on Aventus copycats but quality of ingredients used are not and their is a lot of variables when noses come to play plus ones own chemistry reaction to a lower grade condiment versus a higher grade one but to each it's own....enjoy and God bless

    Salvador Dali Black Sun smells like Armani Code.

    Bod Man Black body spray also is supposed to...but the Windex looking bottle is just a complete put off for me...and the longevity isn't good.
    A single simple smile can change the world…

    Fragrances owned, but not in the basenotes database:

    Blue Escape - Avon
    Cuba Silver Blue - Parfums Des Champs
    In Red pour homme - Estelle Ewen
    Untouchable - Avon
    Version of - Jordache/Jean Philippe (Dollar Tree product. Multiple fragrances; most are not great copy attempts.)

    Truefitt & Hill 1805 is a L'eau D'Issey clone.
    Not sure which is cheaper though!

    L de Lolita is a pretty fair swap for Musc Ravageur- same perfumer, similar notes.
