Reviews of Preferred Stock

From what I remember of Preferred Stock (through the 3.4oz splash bottle I still have) this was a contender scent in the early 90's.It was competing against Drakkar Noir's dark and leathery trademark and the cinnamon woodsy side of Red for Men by Giorgio.Many working class men bought it for the great price and it became a staple gift under the Christmas tree almost as common as English Leather.

This cologne smells of rough cinnamon and a pinch of violet.Citrus soaked tree bark and leather.A bit of white soap and a dash of vetiver to give it a little green quality.Preferred Stock was fairly harsh and synthetic...I'll agree to the judgement on that.But I got complimented on it now and then.And even when I smell it on someone passing by? I praise it over Drakkar Noir.Not perfect but Preferred Stock still smells good.It just might be something don't want to wear all four seasons of the year.It's a 4-6 hour cologne with fair projection.

I love it I wore quarts of this in the 90s and sadly enough I don't own it now.(but not for long)citrus bomb sandlewood and leather is what I get its got a sharp drakkar noir Gio red old spice vibe to me anyways, love it love it. fresh and clean no doubt

Wore this the last two days on a throwback because I've had a few bottles sitting here forever.

You know, I don't mind it. Sure it smells synthetic, it's cheap as dirt. It reminds me of a cheapened less complex Giorgio Red.

My rating is based somewhat in price but unlike the 1990s no one really wears it as much anymore due to all the fresh scents, so all I can say is isn't bad these days, kind of refreshing like people wearing Royal Copenhagen which no one seems to wear either despite wide availability (and I can spot that one a mile away).

The descriptions here are accurate, but to my nose this comes across as bitter and synthetic.

Wow... if I had one scent that brings back memories this was it. This was the Cologne that all the guys got for Christmas when were in high school. I have not smelled it in years, but I remember it was very strong, and cheap smelling, girls never really dug it.

I would call this Preferred Red, because it is like a simplified version of vintage Red for Men by Giorgio of Beverly Hills. I do think this is better than the new version of Red for Men, but I'm giving it a neutral for lack of originality. If Red wasn't released first, I would give this a positive rating. It's a more "mature" scent, but not too "old" (not that it matters to me), and the ingredients seem at least good (for a "cheapo"). However, because I already have enough vintage Red to last me a long time, what can I do with this other than put it on my swap list?
