    Default Zino Davidoff Clone

    Zino Davidoff is one of my more favorite fragrances. Its simply timeless. But Its not available anymore and I got to know they don't make it anymore. Can someone please advise me a good clone of Zino Davidoff which I can get in INDIAN market. I have searched a lot. But I haven't found anything. I need a Zino Davidoff clone. BTW I am a novice in this matter.

    Widely available in the USA surprised it’s hard to get outside of the USA, hopefully others give you some ideas where to buy it. It is often compared to Guerlain Heritage EDT good place to start if you haven’t tried it.
    Current Top 10

    Azzaro Azzaro Pour Homme

    The perfect clone of Zino is Gatsby by Paloma. Unfortunately, it's a discontinued one that may be even more difficult to find than Zino but , who knows ? ...

    If they’re available in your area:

    1920 Extreme by BOIS 1920
    Mesmerize for men by Avon

    I’ve seen these two often recommended.
    Currently wearing: Zen for Men by Shiseido

    Aren't there any US online fragrance retailers that ship to India that you would feel comfortable with?

    Yes there are few. FragranceX.com. is one such online retailer is US who ship to INDIA but the the shipping costs are way too much for me. I have checked with some other US online stores too. Shipping Cost is what killing the deal.

    Glad the OP found an online retailer thanks to AnthonyG.

    Your response of Mesmerize caught my attention. This is bang on correct, except I find mesmerize a tad more 'flowery' while Zino maintains a straight face, as it were.
    I still use Zino as a base for many fragrances I wear. It is a boost to Bleu de Chanel, Sauvage, and others in that vein for example.

    I totally agree with Avecesar. It was my first thought few years ago as I have smelled Gatsby by Pacoma.
    On the other hand I do not find Zino similar to Guerlain Heritage.
    Zino is out of production so if you like it it is time to get a bottle or two.

    I don't think it's out of production I just bought my first bottle and it was made two years ago.

    I can certainly understand that.

    I have searched for Pacoma Gatsby too since Avecesar mentioned it. Sadly it's not available anywhere.
