    THIS. They're totally different scents.

    And Hanae Mori HiM doesn't smell the same as Gucci Pour Homme II. Gph II is a tea/tobacco scent. HiM has neither tea, nor tobacco. It amazes me how easily people are fooled by a blast of violet leaf and cinnamon in the opening. Give it a few minutes and these two scents smell nothing alike.

    Vettiveru and Sycomore???
    I don't get it at all. In fact I find Jardin sur le Nil more similar, but even that is pretty superficial.
    So what matches these two? And please don't say citrus and vetiver. The citrus is wildly different as is the vetiver. Green and grassy vs dry, smoky and rooty. That said, I've always had a weird interaction with sycomore so I may be missing something essential.

    Ha, yes, you get what I am saying. For those who DON'T understand, Enchanted Forest costs $180 for 100 ml EDP, and Spark is probably as cheap as you can get. To say they smell alike, WHICH THEY DO, is an insult to the house of Vagabond Prince. But don't blame me, I am only the messenger. I would think, considering the price of EF, that it's far better than Spark overall, but I personally can't get past that initial honey-rum accord, which seems awesome at first, but over time, is absolutely sickening.

    After the pineapple drydown escapes Aventus, I get nothing but Romance Silver. According to the BN Directory, Romance Silver came out in 2003 and Aventus in 2010. Could it be that Aventus is a knockoff of Romance Silver? Given this, it is hard to justify the price of admission of Aventus.

    Set Sail St. Barts == Kenneth Cole Vintage Black (Kenneth Cole Black flanker)


    No, SSSB does not smell anything like VIW to me. I cant believe all the comparisons to it. Both have a tropical vibe, but that's it. It does however smell like a cheaper version of KC Vintage Black (a bit more hollow and poorer performance however). But if you don't have KC VB, and can't get that one, SSSB is worth a purchase.
