  1. Re: Are there YSL Rive Gauche alternatives that actually smell the SAME?

    Pascal Morabito Or Black (1982) has a drydown closest to Rive Gauche pour Homme in my opinion.

    As popular as Prive seems to be in FragComm, it'll be a unicorn pretty fast if it's DC'd.

    Percival to me is more like Paco Rabanne XS mixed with a splash of Versace Dylan Blue. I personally don't see any connective tissue to Fierce in Percival.
