Similar Fragrances to Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani

Similar Fragrances to Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani

NOTES: This aquatic, aromatic fragrance opens with a splash of fresh, calabrian bergamot, neroli and green tangerine. Light, aquatic nuances mix with jasmine petal, crisp rock rose, rosemary, fruity persimmon and warm Indonesian patchouli to create a masculine scent that is both fresh and sensual.

Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani is a classic fragrance for Men.  I have been selling this fragrance for a very long time and it is one of the best selling fragrance.  There are so many fragrances that try to copy this scent.  As the others might not have it perfect here are some that i have found that smell similar to this. 

1) 360 Red by Perry Ellis For Men

Top notes are orange, nutmeg, lime, mandarin orange, bergamot, cloves and cinnamon; middle notes are lavender and coriander; base notes are patchouli, vetiver, sandalwood, musk, red cedar and oakmoss.

This is one that I found that smells closest to Acqua Di Gio with is branded.  360 Red is also a classic scent and much cheaper the the Acqua di Gio.  The lasting power for this fragrance might not be as much as the Gio, but equivalent.

2) Man Attitude by Deray

Man Attitude by Deray is one of the inexpensive cologne that smells like the Gio.  This fragrance is not found in many places, but you can find it online or in some individually owned fragrance stores.  This fragrance is great for an everyday cologne as it doesn't hurt your pockets and smells great.  When people come asking for the Gio and cannot afford the high price I would show them this one. Immediately they will purchase this one as it only cost around $25 for a 3.4oz bottle where the Gio will cost you around $85 for the same size.  

3) Blue Homme by Sterling Parfums Armaf
Vibrant and masculine, a man who wears Blue Homme is, himself a debonair. The fragrance opens with fresh citrus notes of bergamot, grapefruit and a heart of nutmeg, jasmine ending in lusciously subtle aromas of cedarwood, amber, musk and patchouli.

Blue Homme by Sterling Parfums Armaf has almost the same notes as the Acqua Di Gio if you read it.  This fragrance is inexpensive and the best quality out of all the ones that I have named.  If you had to choose between the others this would be your best bet. It is long lasting, has a beautiful quality bottle and smells the same like the Gio.

Similar Cologne to 1 Million by Paco Rabanne

Similar Cologne to
1 Million by Paco Rabanne
 The notes are: sexy blood orange, grapefruit, cinnamon, mint, rose, spices, light leather, white wood, patchouli and amber.
This cologne is so popular that there are so many copies of them. 
1) Millionaire by Lomani

This is a great alternative to the 1 million as it is cheaper and smells the same as the Paco Rabanne.
2) The Golden Secret by Antonio Banderas
The Golden Secret by Antonio Banderas is a new version of The Secret fragrance introduced in 2010. The fragrance features a cedar note, amber, nutmeg, cumin, apple liquor, leather and black pepper.

This fragrance by Antonio Banderas is great.  I is very close to the 1 million, but a slight difference that is not noticeable.  You can get away wearing this and telling people you are wearing the 1 Million.

There are also loads of copies of the 1 million like 1 Billion which is a knock off and many others.

Similar Perfume to Michael by Michael Kors

Similar Perfumes to
Michael by Michael Kors
Michael by Michael Kors is a Floral Woody Musk fragrance for women. Top notes are freesia, incense, chinese osmanthus and tamarind; middle notes are tuberose, iris, peony, orris root and arum lily; base notes are musk, cashmere wood and vetiver.

Recently there has been so many fragrances that smell like this or very close to it. The one in my opinion which is closest to this is Kim Kardashian.
1) Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is a fragrance constructed of luminous, sweet opening notes, intoxicating, floral middle notes and sensual, sexy aromas in a base. An opening includes refreshing notes of mandarin surrounded with floral-lemon honeysuckle and orange blossom, while a heart blooms with pink jasmine, tuberose, gardenia and spices. A base is created of warm, gentle Tonka, jacaranda wood, vanilla orchid, sexy musk and creamy sandalwood.
This fragrance smells just like the Michael. As I know that the Michael Kors is not in everyone's budget so I think that this is a great alternative for that fragrance with the fraction of the cost. 
2) Tease by Paris Hilton
Notes of the new fragrance incorporate fuji apple, white peach, bergamot, white flowers, amber, blond wood and hot sand.
One of my emplyees was wearing this and I asked her if she was wearing Michael Kors and see told me that it was Paris Hilton.  You cannot tell the difference between them.  I been working with fragrances for about 10 years so I know the scents of almost all the fragrances so I was very surprised that it was Paris Hilton's fragrance.   It is even cheaper than the Kim Kardashian's fragrance so even better for everyone.
 If I find any more that are similar to the Michael I will update the post. Thanks

Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch

Similar Fragrance To Fierce by Abercrombie & Fitch
 Top notes are petitgrain, cardamom, lemon, orange and fir; middle notes are jasmine, rosemary, rose and lily-of-the-valley; base notes are vetiver, musk, oakmoss and brazilian rosewood. 

Fierce is a wonderful fragrance for men.  It fragrance is like the Abercrombie Store when you enter.  It is very different from other fragrances as it is hard to copy, but recently i have seen so many copies of that fragrance.  This fragrance is quite expensive so finding a cheaper version is great for people who don't want to spend so much money on this fragrance.

Skulls & Roses for Him is a fresh ozone scent of bergamot, cardamom, 
 lavender, moss and musk. 

Ed hardy so many fragrances that are amazing, but this one by him smells exactly like Fierce.  I don't think that if you sprayed the two you will be able to tell the difference between the two.  The bottle is also a very good selling point as it is very different with the skull and the rose.  The price on this fragrance is about $20 less than the Fierce, but still a great fragrance. I would prefer this fragrance over the Fierce just because of the bottle and the price. 

This Fragrance by Louis Varel is also very similar to the Fierce.  It has a little more citrus than the fierce, but a very good copy.  I have sold this to so many people who wanted the fierce, but didn't want to spend the money.  This Fragrance retails for about $20 so you can't go wrong. 

Inner Force is not as similar as the other two, but this is close to the fierce about half an hour after spraying the fragrance.  Its smells wonderful fragrance, but if you want something very close to the fierce your best bet would be to buy the Ed Hardy or the Xtra White.

Similar Fragrances To TERRE D HERMES

 Terre d’Herm├Ęs scent is based on an alchemy of wood, the scent first introduces the gaity of orange, the bitterness of grapefruit and the vivacity of pepper and of fresh spices. Dominated by cedar, the fragrance goes deeper with the sweetness of resins and the impalpable voluptuousness of benzoin.

This fragrance is the most wonderful fragrance i have ever smelled, 
but very expensive and hard to find in most of the stores. I have found many fragrances that smell like
 Terre D Hermes, but at a cheaper prince and are available in many places. 

1) F by Ferragamo Pour Homme by Salvatore Ferragamo

F by Ferragamo Pour Homme by Salvatore Ferragamo is a Oriental Woody fragrance for men. Top notes are lavender and apple middle note is black pepper base notes are labdanum, leather and amber.

This fragrance is very similar to the Hermes.  If you smelled them together you cannot find the difference between the two.  I have had many people buy this one instead of the Hermes because of the price difference.  Its not like this fragrance is a cheap brand.  It is still by Salvatore Ferragamo which is a big company so the fragrance on your skin will last as long as the Hermes does. 

2) Black Touch by Franck Olivier

Black Touch men's fragrance from the house of Franck Olivier has a woody-spicy flavor. Composition fragrance opens in notes of bergamot, grapefruit, cardamom and geranium, going to the accords of jasmine, orange flower, and the Caribbean magnolias.  Warm plume spread notes vetiver, musk, patchouli, cedar and vanilla. 

Black Touch by Franck Olivier is very similar to the Hermes, but has a little bit of difference as that it is a bit less citris than the Hermes does but still a great fragrance.  My brother uses this one and you can smell it for at least 6 to 8 hours.  The Hermes on your skin will last as long as 24 hours, but this one is a good cologne if you don't want it to last that long as the Hermes, as some people like to change there day and night fragrances. 

3) MS HOMME by Marco Serussi

MS HOMME by Marco Serussi the fragrance opens with a refreshing scent of the Bergamot and Grapefruit, enhanced by the Spices and the Pink Pepper. Mid note goes floral with the Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Magnolia and vibrates in the refined scent of Cardamom and Geranium Leaves. The base note settles on the silage that mingles with Cedar wood, Patchouli, Vetyver with Vanilla and Musk.
Classic, confident and eager to achieve his dreams, this is The Marco Serussi Pour Homme man. 

This fragrance is by Marco Serussi is also very similar to Hermes, but very hard to find in The US.

Similar to Sunset Heat by Escada

Sunset Heat by Escada

Escada comes out with a summer fragrance every year with a very summery and fruity smell, but unfortunately they discontinue it that same year so when you go back looking for the fragrance its not available anymore.  The best thing you can do in this situation is to find a smell that is very close to the scent.  I have found one that smell the same as the sunset heat by Escada.
This fruity elixir is built around a floral heart magnificently personified by sensual Jasmine, passionate Red Fruits and gourmand Rose. A floral fruity delight of woody, musky gourmand dry down.
