So, I feel like my fragrance collection is getting near completion. I've been on the hunt for a certain "something" in the world of colognes for years. Call it a 70's-80's a masculine mojo spanning from John Shaft to Patrick Bateman. The trouble is that I don't have the budget to obtain certain fragrances. Samples just make me feel unfulfilled and ripped off on the price per ounce. So that leaves me blind buying fragrances over 20$, something I don't like to make a habit of. So I decided on clone oils. I happen to know that these are manufactured by some unknown company in bulk and then sold to many separate online retailers. I have tried these products before and know that they are well beyond the quality you'd expect. Their Hai Karate is amazing. It's not spot on, but if someone told you it was a "reformulation" of HK, you'd have no trouble believing it. Even the current one in the UK is reformulated. These oils are $3.99 for a 1oz rollerballer, the price of a sample of the name brand. If you love a fragrance, you can wear it for months and save up for the real deal. If you hate it, you're out $3.99 and you know you wouldn't pay $60 for it. Here's the list of what I bought. I got Quorum to layer with the EDat and hopefully extend the longevity of the reformulated version. Dior Jules, as far as I know, is discontinued. The bottles I've seen are over $100. Kuoros a complete unknown and it's over $50 for the good bottle. And Lapidus, well, let me say I've heard mixed things!
