I've been through 2 full size bottles of Greenwich Village and this is the same. Because of the higher oil content it lasts longer. I love this so much, I just sold my current bottle of the real thing. I'll be picking up more. This is better than Juliana's 100% because the bottle, atomizer, and fragrances longevity are all MUCH better. Shipping was fast, AND FREE. Yes this is my new dupe house. Buh bye Juliana!
I LOVE the design of this bottle especially in comparison to its counterpart, but I don't think the fragrance is the same. Its a lot more similar to BR540 to my nose. I know those two are compared too, but GWV has a fresh floral sparkly quality to it that you cant get enough of and I just don't get that with this one :( I also pick up an almost unisex smokiness/plastickiness in it that I dont think my nose agrees with. Kind of a bummer, but the price is great. Hopefully Ill get more used to it as time goes by and will learn to appreciate it for what it is.
I have never smelled Greenwich Village but this is so beautiful! I love it! If you like or want a similar vibe to Sunset Hour by Goldfield and Banks, this is the ticket! And so much cheaper! I have Sunset Hour so I can tell you they are not dupes but they are very similar. I would totally repurchase this.
Smells very close to Greenwich, but sits close to the skin unfortunately, no projection on me
Great scent a little too light for me. I like strong perfumes. But overall I Love Elysian. The scents are really good and they last pretty long too.
