    Default Ch Men Prive and Rochas Man - why do they smell alike?

    Just got a split of CH Men Prive and it immediately reminded me of a same kinda dominating note which can be found in Rochas Man.

    I dislike Rochas so I Washington kinda dissapointed.

    On paper these two fragrances dont share much in common besides being winter fragrances. Am I imagining things or do they share the same kind of ingredient or note?

    Not sure about individual notes, but to my nose I don't feel they are similar. Perhaps just me.

    I dont think they smell the same but they both have a sugary sweetness which is the only similarity i can identify.

    To me they're not alike.

    Strangely when I tried CH Prive, the first thing that came to mind was a sweeter version of Fahrenheit Absolute even though I don't believe they share a single note
