    Default Does Anucci Men Smell Like Samourai Alain Delon For Men?

    I recently blind purchased a bottle of Anucci Men because I loved the notes and I hear it's a nice summer floral fragrance. I'm waiting for my bottle to arrive. However, after my purchase I read that Anucci Men smells very similar to Samourai for Men by Alain Delon. I already own Samourai, which was given to me as a gift. So owning both, to me, will be redundant, if they smell alike. One of my pet peeves is having 2 or more fragrances that smell the same or too similar. Does anybody know if the 2 fragrances smell alike?

    They don't smell the same to me. I own the Delon and have smelled the former. Just my take.

    Rest assured Rich, the two fragrances are as different as day and night. They smell like they are from two different eras as well, despite being only a handful of years apart.

    Let us know what you think of Anucci Man when it arrives.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Beyond the jasmine, and the overall effect of a men's fragrance with florals they aren't that much alike. Samourai is much sharper, the citrus more pronounced. Neither seems to last very long though.
    Most worn:

    Black Comme des Garçons, Borneo 1834 Serge Lutens, Patchouli Santa Maria Novella
