    Default Plum Japonais what doea it really remind you of

    All the Youtubers keep spamming that it smells like Floriental but i just dont see it. Floriental seems much more complex and so unique to me. On the Other hand plum Japonais really smells similar to Comme des Garcons 2 for me. I even found a fragrantica comment that says this.

    Whats your opinion

    While I do find it shares some similarities with 'Floriental', it really reminds me of 'Fille en Aiguilles'.

    I can also see the similarities with Floriental so it doesn't surprise to hear that others are opining about this.

    I haven't tried Floriental but I've never smelled anything else like Plum Japonais.

    Agree.

    I get a nice ambery-balsamic sweet base, which the fruity plum merges in to, with a floral (rose, saffron) top.

    Haven't tried Floriental. It sort of reminds me of Armani fragrances, in a way, but not any particular one.

    I have not smelled Floriental, but Plum Japonais is among my top five favourite fragrances. I find it unique, opulent, and comforting. I don't find it very feminine, but it is perfectly unisex in my opinion. Some women complain it is to masculine for their taste.

    Opening reminds me of Varvatos Vintage, or Jub XXV.
