    As mentioned before, this is a lot like Ralph Lauren's Safari for Men. Everything that Ralph Lauren does is a little more dynamic, more showy, more "designed" than the house (Brooks Brothers) that he takes his inspiration from. This is a perfect example of that--a smoother, more conservative version of Safari. I get a slight metallic note, as if the machine-turned sterling belt buckle that the label echos was somehow dropped into the vat. I have worn this quite a lot over the years and really like it without completely loving it. That said, it is a perfect office scent, totally masculine and in the best taste. It may not get you laid, but it will not get you fired, either. One morning I showed up at my office wearing this and one of my team came in to brief me on something or other. He immediately said how great I smelled, then stopped, embarrassed that he had crossed some unspoken line about guys not complimenting other guy's fragrance. He then stammered that my cologne smelled good--you know, masculine...I mean manly. Uh, whatever that is smells good..... Flustered, he grabbed the file and fled. I later had a word with his wife who was asking for suggestions for a birthday present. Guess what he got that year?

    For me, this is a light, grassy scent that is generic among men's scents of the past few decades. It is neither unique, nor creative, simply basic.

    Like dozens of others of its type, not recommended.

    Brooks Brothers for Men is certainly a winner among the hackneyed group of woody aromatics available today. It is nothing intriguing or breath-taking, but it is a solid masculine aromatic. Despite its American heritage, Brooks Brothers for Men is refined and smooth English woody aromatic featuring the usual suspects found in Safari for Men and Grafton though it is better than either of those. The opening is a bit fruitier and the overall composition is less fusty with of course less sillage and projection (which I like). Is BB a throwback, even retro? Despite its late arrival in 1998 compared to its predecessors, perhaps it does play the retro card and quite well I might add.

    Even though Brooks Brothers for Men is a late 1990s interpretation of a late 1980s/early 1990s genre, one might chance to catch a whiff of the Belle Epoch/Edwardian Era as some reviewers have mentioned. Buy it while you can. Something this solid won't last long since most people have poor taste these days (the company from whom I purchased my Brooks Brothers said they would include a sample of a similar fragrance for me to try--they included a sample of something by Jessica Simpson).

    This smells a lot like Safari For Men, only not as loud. It's a leathery, spicy and sweet aromatic fougere, and it's got an underlying scent of shaving cream. I can tell this was made of quality materials, composed by a skilled perfumer, because the scent remains rock-solid for its entire duration, rather than going all soft and mushy on your skin after an hour or two. If Truefitt & Hill's Grafton were much better constructed, it would smell a lot like Brooks Brothers For Men.

    This is the kind of scent that would go perfectly with a bowtie, suspenders and muttonchops. It's the scent of an aristocrat or a dandy from the late 1800s. If this is your style, then this is a must-try fragrance. It's really excellent!

    MY RATING: 8/10

    Notes include bergamot, petitgrain oil, tangerine, carnation, , cumin, oak moss, vetiver, and musk. The following terms were not translated by Google so I leave them to Estonian BNoters willing to contribute: raudürt, võhumõõgajuur.

    At first smell there are notes common to classic "white shirt" scents launched during the 1990's like Safari, XS, Tiffany and Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree, thus BB is not that different and / or original. Besides, the blend lacks the subtlety and the finesse of Tiffany and Chanel, wich does not reduce at all its quality and character, which is, to some point, improved by its longevity and sillage. As well as the ones mentioned, BB is a formal scent that is sold at a very convenient price, thus it would make a perfect replacement for those unwillig to spend prices carried by the ones mentioned.

    The essence of affordable leather shoes, generic wooden shoe trees, cheap carpeting and musk are hastily merged to form a scent that instantly transports one's nose to the local haberdashery.
