• Hey friends, in today's video I'm listing off some fragrance flankers that I personally think are better than the original releases. In this video I've got fragrances like Dolce & Gabbana The One, Paco Rabanne Invictus and more. As always, thanks for watching!

    2. Jean Paul Gaultier Male - Ultra Male
    3. Paco Rabbane Invictus - Invictus Intense
    4. YSL L'Homme - YSL La Nuit De L'Homme

    You should do a top list of masculine barbershop-like fragrances!

  • Deion Beeldenstormer
    Deion Beeldenstormer 2 months ago +1

    Great list! I would add:
    PDM/Layton Exclusif better than Layton
    Givenchy/Xeryus Rouge better than Xeryus
    Lalique/Encre Noire a l'Extreme better than Encre Noire
    Gucci/Guilty Absolute better than Guilty (and any other flankers)
    JPG/Ultra Male better than Le Male
    Bvlgari/Aqua Amara better than Aqua
    Acqua di Parma/Colonia Essenza (also: Colonia Intensa) better than Colonia
    Dior/Fahrenheit Absolute better than Fahrenheit
    P.S. Little secret: sometimes the perfume (women's) version of a frag is wayyyyy better than the men's version. Or at least an interesting reinterpretation of the men's version, and worth checking out (regardless of your gender). Case in point: Amouage. IMO, Memoir Woman is sooo much better than Memoir Man. I also prefer Interlude Woman and Epic Woman to the Man versions. If you've tried the Man versions, and want something a bit more versatile and mysterious, try out the Woman versions. Trust me on this.

    Don't forget flankers like BANG BANG, Stronger with you Intensely, Velvet Orchid Lumiere, and PS Onyx.

    I have to play Devil's Advocate on Gucci Guilty Black. It represents the whole "cancer" of the fragrance community of making fragrances and marketing names that are misleading. I was expecting Gucci to make a flakey that was darker, bolder and more mysterious than the original Gucci Guilty.

    I have these Fragrances
    Tom Ford - Noir
    Prada- L’Homme Intense
    D&G - The One EDP
    Versace - Eros
    what fragrances should I get to complete an allrounder type of set? I would like to get La Nuit de L’homme but I think It is too similar to the One.

    I know you are sick and tired about Aventus Clones but Armaf just released a CDNI EDP it’s been sold in fragrancebuy for $57 and for sure it’s going to be better than the original CDNI.

    • MoahGentle
      MoahGentle 3 months ago +1

      You can pick out the seaweed note in every single Aqva flanker easily. It's definitely a hit or miss. I personally love it for it's uniqueness.

    Thanks for all the reviews in 2019. In this video you explained the term 'flankers' (which I knew) but maybe in a future video you can explain 'flex'. Saw this term 'flex' as a category on the Fragrantica awards, but still not sure what exactly 'flex' means.

    • Jkev24
      Jkev24 3 months ago

      I think flex refers to showing off. Like you're flexing on the competition. Could be wrong though.
