Tom Ford made several successful perfume releases since 2006. Soleil Blanc, a unisex fragrance with amber floral tones, is one of its most famous. The sultry blend showcases beautiful summer sceneries in luxurious private islands.
Launched in 2016 and developed under the nose of Natalie Gracia-Cetto, Soleil Blanc builds around the powerful combination of spicy, floral, and luxurious tones, which include pink pepper, cardamom, pistachio, jasmine, ylang-ylang, coconut milk, and benzoin. If you like the scent of the sexy beach, but you cannot afford a Tom Ford, or you simply want an alternative, here are its closest clones.

Fleur d’Orchidee Karl Lagerfeld
Fleur d’Orchidee is a fresh and luminous scent perfect for daily wear, especially when the weather is hot and humid. The 2019 release from Karl Lagerfeld is an ideal replacement for Tom Ford Soleil Blanc because it has similar characteristics and scent accords with the luxury brand, yet it does not cost that much.
Perfume specialist Emilie Coppermann was the nose behind Fleur d’Orchidee, and made it with the opening notes of grapefruit and neroli; the heart notes of orchid, jasmine, sambac, and pink pepper; and the base notes of cedar, patchouli, and Tonka bean.

Dossier has been making decent alternatives to luxury scents at an affordable price since 2018. Its headquarter is in New York, and it has stores spread across three continents. It carefully maintains the French touch on its fragrances, with perfumers from Paris. One of its winningest editions is Powdery Coconut, inspired by Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc.
Like its inspiration, Powdery Coconut opens with the pistachio and cardamom combo. Then, it leads up to the heart of sweet floral tones of ylang-ylang. The scent builds up further with base notes of benzoin and amber, plus coconut notes tying up everything together.
