    yesterday I wore Floris JL and it immediately reminded me of GIT/CW, but as well done as the GIT. If you can get past calling it a clone and just judge it for what it is, it's nice stuff!

    Kiton Men today. I don't wear this one as much as I should, probably because I get occupied with trying new samples. The BN reviews never mention this, but the pineapple note really makes this fragrance.

    I have been using Guerlain Vetiver and YSL Opium and would love to hear your views on what fragrances would appeal to my tastes, Thanks.

    Thanks Master-Classter for your suggestions. I read reviews of all the four fragrances on basenotes and will be trying Lalique Encre Noir and Gucci Envy soon.

    Do you mean YSL Opium pour Homme or the original YSL Opium? Assuming you mean Opium pour Homme, you might want to check out Tom Ford Moss Breches, which is spicy and sweet like Opium PH. The top of Moss Breches is much less harsh and the base is much less sickly sweet than Opium PH.

    You might also like Tom Ford Black Orchid. Both are heavy and sweet, although the sweetness in Black Orchid is jammy rather than vanilla. (There's nothing in Black Orchid that resembles that awful black currant note you get at the top of Opium PH, but that's a good thing IMO!)

    Finally, you might want to check out the original Opium, which is also spicy and sweet, but much less harshly so. (I think the original is better than Opium PH in every way.)

    Finally, +1 to all of Master-Classter's recommendations.

    Thanks L'Incandescent for your suggestions, I use the original YSL Opium and would love to hear your thoughts on fragrances similar to the original Opium.

    The original Coco from Chanel is somewhat in a style like Opium, except it has more dried fruits to it.
    I think if you like Vetiver, Sycomore is another one to check out.

    Thomas, thanks for changing your avatar. That egyptian guy always creeped me out. Are you having an arm wrestling contest with Dakota Rube? Etro Sandalo
    LOL, no - there's been a strange avatar-swap going on so I thought it was time. It will probably change again soon, once I find the right pic. Nice pick on Sandalo, I remember liking that one.

    Hmmm. I like vetiver but not Opium so it's a toss-up. Here are a few off the beaten path: Etro Shaal Nur (vetiver/incense/vanilla) Guerlain Habit Rouge SL Chergui Today I'm wearing Shaal Nur.
