Interesting, classy scent. I sampled it without knowing its notes. I could tell that it had something green, dry and herbaceous at the centre. I'm surprise to see that it is coriander -- the leaves, obviously, not the seed. Otherwise known as cilantro.
Starts with a citrus opening, but the lemon is not obvious. Perhaps hints of camphoraceous lavender but these too are subdued.
In fact, everything is throttled-back in the cause of sophisticated understatement.
Hint of tonka/vanilla in the dry-down, but be assured that the scent is dry throughout.
10/10, sophistication you can rely on for the entire day.
For me, this has the feel of Tiffany for Men. I had a mini from the 90's EDT and thought this is excellent. Just purchased a 100ml 2010 production. It's better because it is brighter. 2003 production has a bigger plonk of oakmoss and is richer than 2010.
This is up on my list of must haves. Wear it formal or casual as it's elegant and not quite as dense as the Tiffany. It melts into my masculine skin. Thumb's up!!
Now I need to try the EDP.

Classic smelling, regal, but challenging. It makes me think of a luxurious car interior, mint condition.
This has now become connected in my mind with Pour Monsieur Concentree and Tiffany for Men. This Guerlain is a loud version - sharp bordering on edgy.

If you were to take the most rich and distinctive notes from old school fragrances and meld them perfectly into a single fragrance, you'll end up with Heritage. This is a mature fragrance that that smells like it's out of another era. Classical lavender, lemon, patchouli, cedar and vanilla, in a superb balance. It's Mad Men and Wall Street and Empire Boardwalk rolled into one. This is what I want to wear with my best suit, tie and french cuffs. Very nice.
