    Question Weil Homme Silver - Eau de Parfum ???

    I'm really curious about this mysterious fragrance !
    ...no mention of it on basenotes or fragrantica, or any other perfume website directories.
    The packaging looks similar to Weil pour Homme, (but without the horizontal stripes).
    I love Weil pour Homme, but I'm guessing that this is something completely different rather than a concentrated version of WpH.
    Has anyone tested it ? does anyone know the notes ?

    Thanks for any help on this one.

    I do not know how to do links hednic, but if you google image the name you will find photo's of it. I saw it in a perfumery here but they did not have a tester bottle.

    I just picked it up today, and it reminds me of Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. Not an exact dupe, but in the same space.

    OK I found it. Another Basenoter displayed an image of it in another thread.

    I just got my nose on this. It’s been a while, but this might be a Aqua di Parma Essenza dupe. Or perhaps AdP Colonia?
    Suffering is not holding you. You are holding suffering. When you become good at the art of letting sufferings go, then you’ll come to realize how unnecessary it was for you to drag those burdens around with you. You’ll see that no one else other than you was responsible. The truth is that existence wants your life to become a festival, because when you are unhappy, you also throw unhappiness all around. -Osho

    Actually like this one on its own merits and it's ridiculously inexpensive.

    I found it to have a striking resemblance to Chanel Pour Monsieur EDP. I see the Tom Ford Grey Vetiver comparisons, but the exact nature of the lemony, powdery citrus and even less vetiver than GV bring it very close to the newer PM EDP for me.

    But is the quality actually impressive, or is it just a "good for the price" offering?

    Starting out as the second, but growing into the first. It reminds me of a lot of good fragrances, including Arquiste, Varvatos, etc. Most of these sorts of cheap fragrances aren't nearly as pleasing as this, but it still has a cheap vibe. Oddly, it uses that well-done cheapness as the "bad attractor" very effectively. That's a bit fascinating.

    I'm getting a lot of positive olfactory reminiscences from it - "where did I smell this note?" Seems a big step up from the average Zara.

    A really good cheap fragrance. It cannot shake the cheap feel, but it wears it very well.
