Does erythritol sugar substitute completely replace fructose syrup, synthetic sweeteners such as aspartame?

1. Is it the same as sucrose/fructose syrup?
Although sugar substitutes can provide thousands of times, even thousands of times the sweetness of sucrose/fructosy syrup, most people can eat the difference between sucrose and sugar substitute. For example, the taste of Dieti and Zero Coke is different from that of the original Coke. Some people can accept it, and some people can't accept it. Many people around me complain that Diet Coke is completely unacceptable for Zero Cola. "It is not the taste of Coke at all."
So, what does this "different" specifically mean in science? Food scientists are constantly working hard to study. At present, sensory science often uses the "curd of intensity of sweetness over time" to measure the sweetness characteristics of a sweetener, as shown below.
The red curve in the picture means "Ansai Honey", its sweetness comes quickly and goes fast. When I ate my mouth, I reached the peak very quickly, but it disappeared very quickly. The blue curve indicates "New Sweet." The sweetness of this sweetener comes slowly, goes slowly, has a strong "post-sweet" character, and the sweetness has long been lingering.
Many food companies use different sweeteners, such as aspartame + acesulfame, or sucralose + acesulfame. This will make the overall curve similar to sucrose. But still can not completely reduce the sweetness of sucrose.
The light curve of "sweetness intensity over time" does not cover all aspects of sweetness. I want to use the sugar substitute to restore the taste that is exactly the same as the sucrose/fructose syrup. The road is still very long.
