    Default Fragrances similar to Penhaligon Juniper Sling with Gin and Tonic?

    Tried Penhaligon’s Juniper Sling (Smells of Gin Tonic) earlier but I’m concerned about the longevity and sillage of the perfume. I’m looking for better alternatives that perform better and I was hoping people could throw out some suggestions. Preferably under $100, if possible.

    I love the smell of Juniper Sling but have found nothing really close to it. I thought Lubin's Gin Fizz might be like it, but after I sampled it, I found they weren't close.

    People have complained about the longevity/sillage of Juniper Sling since it came out, but it's never been horrible for me.

    Unfortunately, if you overspray, I found it can get to be too cloying, so I just spray a little extra on my shirt. That usually helps with fragrances that are "projection-challenged". Either that or get an inexpensive atomizer to carry around with you during the day for a few added spritzes.

    Thanks, appreciate the insight.

    Juniper Sling is one of those fragrances that you can't smell on yourself after an hour or so, but I have received compliments after 6 hours so others are smelling it long after I can't

    Bought a bottle of Hermès Voyage Parfum yesterday. This smells precisely like a Gin Soda, not really tonic like, but the gin aspect is sublime. There's a soft ambery incense quality to it.

    I can see that comparison also. Good stuff.

    I don't find Gin Fizz similar either and it has longevity issues imo

    Juniper is very prevalent in Costa Azzura by Tom Ford -- I think it's fairly close but definitely not under $100 unfortunately

    Creed Royal Mayfair has a very nice gin and tonic accord. The list price for Royal Mayfair is higher, but I have seen it marked down at some online retailers.

    L’Humaniste would give you the Gin and Tonic Vibe but not for under $100

    Perhaps its just me - but I get a boozy Gin and Tonic vibe from Le Vetiver by Carven

    Perhaps a vodka tonic?

    And it hangs in there for a good long time

    I agree with Voyage d'Hermes EdT. Malle's Angeliques Sous La Pluie captures the feel even better for me, but it is not strong or long lasting. Or under 100 bucks. Anyway...

    Good to know :-) ... .
    I love a spritz of water & Gin much more than with any other flavourings (no connoisseur here, just think I'm buying some of the more decent stuff).
    Concerning VdHP: It's almost exactly the same smell ... stunningly close, sipping some Tanqueray right this moment.

    You're asking for longevity in a category that's notoriously short lived. I found L'Humaniste tragic.

    Here are a few that will give you that zesty, freshly poured drink vibe (can't guarantee they're under a $100 but you could buy samples/decants) -

    Art de Parfum - Gin and Tonic cologne (I think this would be perfect. It has none of the cheap white pepper smell that Juniper Sling has. You'll need to like cardamom.)

    Olfactive Studio - Still Life

    Parfumerie Générale - Yuzu Ab Irato

    Arquiste - L'Etrog Acqua

    Many people have reported this. I’m glad performance is not an issue on it for me. Quite good actually
