So along with the order of the Derby Club House, I also bought another bottle of CDNI for backup. To me it's that good. And I wanted to try the Derby Club House Blanche which is supposed to be a clone of Silver Mountain Water.

I really like SMW. In fact I love it. I once got worked by a Cougar wearing 2 drops Alpha Treasures and Silver Mountain Water. Good times!

So after trying DCH, my hopes for DCHB dropped considerably. I just hit the back of my hand with one spray to see.

Yes...THIS IS CLOSE! I am very satisfied with this one. If there is a difference it doesn't matter. So similar. Not sure how they do it, but they are good. Now I am looking forward to the other three coming from India.

That brings me to believe that they did NOT intend DCH to be a clone to BdP because it is so far off to me. It must be something else.

Anyway, if you love SMW, I can't see how you won't love DCHB. Same, or at least super similar fragrance for a small fraction of the cost! Brothers helping Brothers.

received a bottle of armaf bois nuit which is supposed to be a clone of YSL la nuit de l'homme. i've never owned YSL but the bois nuit had a familiar smell on my skin. i couldn't place it but then it hit me .... it's very similar to Apex's Fuse! Just thought i'd mention this for the people who like Fuse.

That being said, is it of quality? Do you like it?

I smelled them side by side in a fragrance shop. To me they smell nothing alike and the pufumer working behind the counter agreed. She gave me a funny look when I said it was made to be a GIT clone.

All this talk about creed and armaf club de nuit being identical and grabbing compliments left and right made me go on a blind purchase. (Mostly I was curious what does a 300/400 dollar cologne smells like).

Personally I think its good but subtle. I do get compliments on it a lot. The other day I was doing a tour of an apartment and this gorgeous 20 year old from africa (I dont like chocolate covered girls but she was perfect model like, 10/10 I kid you not, super petite). Asked if I was wearing creed as her ex bf always had it on. I said no idea it was a christmas present. She was very persistent at convincing me its creed and asking if its in a black bottle etc.

Sorry just noticed your question.

I have a few armafs and they're all great quality. I do like Bois de nuit, lasts a good 6 hours on my skin. I also have an oil version of La Nuit and they do both smell similar. Slightly different in the dry down.

Were you comparing Bois Nuit to GIT?
Tres Nuit is the GIT clone.

So this morning I figured out what Armaf's Derby Club House is supposed to be a clone of. If it isn't supposed to be a clone of it, they got close without trying.

As I stated above, I'm not crazy about DCH, but it is a pleasant scent.

This morning I hit myself with 4 sprays from a sample I still have from a Creed shop in Paris last Summer. That sample is Original Santal. I've tried this a few times and I'm not crazy about this either. Then it hit me. Go grab DCH. I sprayed one spray on my ankle because I didn't want it mingling with the Original Santal.

These two are actually pretty close. The DCH is a little abrasive and does have a little bit of a gasoline smell to it. I like the smell of gas though so that doesn't bother me. The DCH projects a little better.

Bottom line - it's a little reach as they are not exact, but these two are pretty close. Good for a powdery scent, but I'm not blown away by either.
