    Possibly, to certain limited extents:

    several male florals with or without rose and/or vanillic note like Habit Rouge, Zino and/or Santos

    speaking of certain male floral notes, Caron pour un Homme in comparison to other scents in the lineup containing pronounced lavender like particularly l'Occitan, Sartorial, Ungaro Man Silver

    Armani Eau pour Homme compared to other classic style citruses including but not limited to Eau Sauvage EDT

    Marbert Homme and/or Lancetti Uomo with other vintage and/or discontinued powerhouses

    Middle Eastern tobacco scent Mystique Homme by Al Haramain to further tobacco scents like Zara Tobacco Collection, Aramis Havana and/or CK One Shock among others

    several scents with a certain TDH theme without being downright Hermes TDH plagiarisms, including but not limited to Yardley Citrus&Wood, Cuir Vetiver, Ginepro Nero by l'Erbolario, Zara Norrland

    among others, in no particular order

    Way too many to list for me.

    A good chunk of my collection is comprised of tobacco scents. I find tobacco to be a pretty diverse note; I don't think, for example, Aramis Havana has anything to do with Michael for Men.

    But I do own at least two that feel similar: MAC Shadescents Velvet Teddy and West Third Brand Tobacco 1812, which are both descendants of Tobacco Vanille, though they take that scent profile in different directions (both kinda ditch the "Christmas candle" elements of Tobacco Vanille; Velvet Teddy rebuild the scent around dirty, wild honey, and Tobacco 1812 shifts the emphasis to earthy cacao with a strong mint accent).
    Holiday Favorites
    Bentley for Men Intense, English Laundry Windsor, Franck Boclet Tobacco, Guerlain Héritage EDT, L'Erbolario Méharées, L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme, Michael Kors Michael for Men, Rasasi Dhanal Oudh Nashwah, Tom Ford Extreme

    Once my collection got over 100 bottles, I really began to draw easy parallels of many scents. There's too many to document here, but unfortunately online resources don't do similar fragrance mapping justice (Fragrantica has a similar frag voting feature, but it's inherently flawed). Best way, other than drawing one's own comparison, is to delve deep into written reviews.

    I have sold 250+ bottles often to avoid similarities .

    However, one double up was hard to resist because the cost was so low and big bold fougeres are a favourite: Duc de Vervin and Drakkar Noir

    I was put off buying Giorgio PH for the longest time because I had GG, but to my relief there is a substantial difference. But yes for thise new to the hobby, real patchouli can come across as same same since every designer that lists patchouli in the notes is using the most characterless version of patchouli. Designer-grade patchouli may as well be called “filler”. Same with designer-grade vetiver.

    Yeah, I actually like GIorgio BH better than GG (vintage). It's more fun in the top to middle, and sharing the killer patch at the end.

    I've taken to calling designer patchouli "denatured" because it's really just an isolate of one facet, not the entire patchouli accord. Vetiver that smells artificially smoky or grassy also comes across to me as an isolate. Damn these chem firms.

    I'm not sure I would be able to identify "artificially" grassy or smoky vetiver. How do you distinguish it from "genuinely" smoky or grassy?

    Like if the smoke is "just" smoke or you get "just" the grassy aspects alone, and vetiver is listed in the note pyramid. There's a lot of complexity to natural vetiver and when vetiver in a perfume comes closer to this complexity, it feels more real. It's similar to how sandalwood smells versus the synthetic stuff they call sandalwood that focuses on just one aspect or another of sandalwood. Same with oakmoss versus treemoss/oakmoss blend versus zero moss (evernyl) bases. Granted, some of this might be blending too.

    One similarity I do want to mention, now that I recall:

    Tom Ford Oud Wood and Lalique Hommage a L'Homme Voyageur. Sample of the first compared to my tester bottle of the second. I haven't tested the comparison since, because I don't like either.

    Sometimes I like to get flankers of an existing wardrobe item, if that counts. For example, I have both Elixir des Merveilles and Eau Claire des Merveilles. I also have Kenzo Flower and Kenzo Flower Le Parfum. I like the strength variations for different weather and moods.
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Dunhill Pursuit and Frank No. 2 smell alike to me, almost too much. Only difference is the Dunhill disappears in about 5 minutes.

    Actually Egoiste Cologne Concentree is more similar to Tiffany for Men. The spice and sandalwood notes are comparable in both. Tiffany for men lacks a little bit of the oriental sweetness unlike the Chanel.
