BB 1818 replacement

Hello Gents,

I am just about done with my remaining bottle of 1818, pre-reformulation, pre-“right sizing”. Needless to say, I will not be purchasing what they are now offering. This was my everyday work scent so I am now in search of a replacement as close to the original as possible at a similar price point ($50-60 or so for 6 oz by my recollection). My preference would be to wear Floris Santal every day, but that just doesn't fit in the budget.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated and hopefully a help to others in the same situation.

Isn't TOBS Sandalwood quite similar to 1818? I haven't smelled 1818 yet but thats what Ive read - nevertheless TOBS make a really good cologne.

Expand the budget and buy the Floris Santal is my only recommendation.

1818 is quite unique and I've never smelled anything like it. If it's gone then it's gone.

Sometimes there is no alternative.

A quick ebay check shows several listings for Floris Santal that come pretty close to your posted budget limitations.
