    Default Carolina Herrera for men clones

    After sampling many perfumes and not liking any of them, I thought it is about time to go back where I started many years ago and look for perfumes that are similar to Herrera for men or close enough niche or designer. Your help appreciated, thank you!

    Burberry London is along the same lines of spicy woody tobacco.

    Not long ago I started collecting tobacco perfumes like: tobacco rose, the dreamer, burberry london, havana, pure havane, eau de baux, tabac rouge, habanita and many others. There is nothing like herrera for men, the citrus opening and the tobacco note are something else.

    Why not just hunt for another of what you know you like?

    the old herrera pour homme is way better than the new one so pay attention for what you are hunting?

    Thanks for the reply moharram, I have used the older reformulation of herrera for men in the past and current one, I think the differences are negligible, nevertheless I would like to get a hold of a vintage bottle. Do you of any other places beside eBay that sell vintage perfumes?

    I wish I could go back in time to golden era of perfumery the 90's.

    IMO Platinum Egoiste is quite similar.

    Thanks for the reply Izzie, Platinum Egoiste is a fine perfume and it is indeed close to herrera for men but there is something deep within the composition I don't like, I had a similar experience with One Man Show, it just made me feel sick.
