Ho hang vintage is a bomb . Like ,Antaeus,Captain Molyneux,Tuscany,Equipage ,one of the best ,out of time.

A marginal thumbs up for this classic. It smells fine, but arguably incomplete, a base missing a top, settling almost too quickly into an agreeable accord, but nothing overly gripping.

Stardate 20160804:

It was the trendsetter. The original. Oft copied but never outclassed. Gucci Pour Homme and Gianfranco Ferre for Man (both masterpiece in their own right) derive a lot of their character form Ho Hang.
Like all the good stuff from the days of yore, this has been discontinued and I am glad as it did not get the love it deserved.

I see this as a contemporary of Vintage Hermes Equipage. Has the same Gentlemanly flavour. Instead of the Hermes Leather Elegance and Animalic we have more of a Powdery, Spicy Floral Soapy drydown. A nice Basil top note. I like owning both and when wearing one question which is better. Two Classics.

I used to wear Ho Hang at high school. I probably was the only guy of my age who wore this one. Nothing ressembles to this. A strange and complex composition: Citrus foral herbal.

Maybe outdated surely not a safe scent and certainly not for everyboby but for me one of the best. On my all Time top 5. Unfortunately discontuned and difficult to find at an indecent price.

Masterpiece 9/10

Ho Hang is a naturalistic Italian style masculine with a cool citrus - basil core and a minimum of detailing. Spare and uncompromising, it lies somewhere between a dry Martini and Eau du Sud.
