    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    It seems to be a mass-market Belgian company. That's probably why. How did you find out about this house?

    Creation Lamis, Hot Blast is a Spicebomb clone. They're pretty decent when starting out, I bought loads in 2016 when I was starting out. done a few videos on them on my youtube channel. Not bad bang for the buck, but I sold all mine off a year or so ago

    they must have been pretty bad to sell them all off.

    It's hard to say, I was (still am) an amateur so couldn't exactly differentiate quality, but I started buying these clones randomly without knowing what TYPE of fragrances that I liked, so over time as I tried more scents I realised that the clones I'd bought weren't the type of thing I wanted to smell of.

    For example their Sauvage copy was pretty close (again, to my inexperienced nose) - I guess now I've smelled a whole range of things I may now have a different experience and be able to find distinctions between the 2, but using the Sauvage one as an example, I'd only worn the original Dior once or twice and the Lamis copy certainly reminded me of it, but I wasn't too familiar with the scent to know how close it was exactly.

    I also bought more designers over time and all these clones I had were just sitting there unused which is another reason for their sales.
