Top marks! Probably the very first fragrance I ever encountered back in the 1980s. Dad always had a bottle. The best way I can describe PRPH is it smells like the finest soap and talcum powder set that money can buy...refined, clean, fresh and comforting. It really is unique and evocative.

This is how I like it. Very crisp, with lots of rosemary, sage and laurel, and the lavender is very smoothly blended in - unlike sweet modern lavenders. It is suave, it is fresh. The dry down is driven by moss and accentuated by a vague, hazy sweetness of honey and tonka, which makes it a little cosy; moderate separation of notes, and excellent balance. Sometimes rugged, sometimes refined, soothing, uplifting, robust, decidedly old school and definitely out of fashion (is that a good thing?). It isn't as sophisticated as Rive Gauche pour Homme, but it is more effortless. I find there are several similarities in 'personality' with Bogart ("classic/signature"), even though scent profiles are somewhat different. A must try if you're into wet shaving or barbershop scents; discreet sillage and moderate duration.

4/5

Note: My bottle is a 'semi-vintage' splash. No idea as to how the current stuff is.

Rosemary, sage and touches of bergamot - can an opening be more classic? Rich, fresh-ish, herbal - delicious.

The same relational line continues in the drydown: lots of lavender, geranium with whiffs of basil thrown in. Sheer delight.

In the base, the oakmoss was the jewel of the original formulation: crisp, not very sharp and of intense richness. This all is counterbalanced by a restrained sweetness that is mainly owed to a honeyed tonka. In the most recent version the base is thinner, the oakmoss is just a shadow of its former self, and the whole appears anaemic compared to the older issues.

I get moderate sillage l, excellent projection and seven hours of longevity on my skin.

In its original version this autumnal beauty represents the classic fougère, in all its glorious beauty. The quality of the ingredients was sublime, and the blending exquisite. A bit brighter than dunhill blend 30. 4.25/5.

The most recent reformulation is a 3.5/5 - still respectable overall.

This is one my all-time favorite fragrances, at least in the vintage formulations. It was my father's signature scent in the 70s - 80s and every time I wear it, it reminds me of him. Wearing this really makes me mourn the loss of oak moss in perfumes, as it is my favorite base note. I recently managed to score 100ml of the first edition of Paco Rabanne Pour Homme and the Oak Moss base blows me away, so natural and soft. The modern formulation is a chemical mess, in my opinion, but the original, second and even third formulations are sublime. 5 solid stars.

Only tried the reformulation, but I was expecting a powerhouse scent. Wasn't what I expected. Barbershop and floral yes, dated yes, but not old man/too strong. I don't know if I'd wear this to work or out, but might consider a bottle for weekends at home.

My dad used to own it back in the 1980s/90s. It's a very masculine, elegant, dry, classic, old school fragrance, suitable for young and older men. Great for men in their 40s and 50s.
