    Default fragrances wardrobe collection... repetitive or redundant scents ? Capucci, Dunhill, ...

    Are these fragrances very similar to each other ?
    And if I have one or two, the other two are not necessary?
    Or for a lover of classics fougeres, chypres and barbershop scents,
    they can be worn during a same week rotation and is not repetitive or reduntant scent ?
    For the reviews that I have read I think I will like all of them, ..

    I think that the rotation is something key to be able to enjoy the perfumes and
    I am easily fatigued or tired, that's why i would like to ask before.

    I try not to repeat my favorite perfumes for more than two days in a week.

    Versace L'Homme (lemon + leather) and Capucci pour Homme (lemon chypre) are a little bit similar because of the lemon note, but Versace L'Homme is much more punchy. I much prefer it over Capucci pour Homme. The Dunhills are quite different from each other and also these two.

    IMO these are not similar.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thanks Freewheelingvagabond and Hednic, I see that the Dunhill are not similar.
    I will surely include and add both in my collection this year, and maybe all 4 fragrances , Versace, Dunhill and finally Capucci.

    Have you tried the Capucci? Honestly I don't think it would be worth it to you.

    Agreed. And both are nice scents at a modest price in the barbershop genre.....

    For a barbsershop vibe Dunhill For Men and Dunhill Edition could work.

    Also tending to consider that Versace l'Homme and Capucci PH are different enough from each other to not make owning and routinely using/wearing both redundant.
    While at least one of not both of the Dunhills add more variety into the lineup, again with little to no reason to become redundant while gaining at least one more great classic and often at affordable costs too.
