    Bois de Portugal and PDN New York.

    Also, when I layer Kiehls Pour Homme Oil with Habit Rouge (or Shulton Old Spice), I get a PDN New York vibe.

    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.

    Enchanted Forest by The Vagabond Prince....... and ............. Spark for Men, by Liz Claiborne.
    Just because a fragrance is expensive, doesn’t necessarily make it smell better than a cheaper one.

    I can still pray in the U.S.A. (For now, anyway.)

    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.
