    That Man information

    A strange name for a fragrance you may think! Back in the fifties, the four big US cosmetics brands were Estée Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein and Charles Revson's, Revlon. As you can imagine, the rivalry was immense, and Arden couldn't even bring herself to call Revson by his name, instead calling him "That Man". Charles decided to give the name to this men's fragrance, which must have really peeved Liz!

    A masculine classic from 1958, similar in spirit to ultra-rare Woodhue For Men. No kidding, it also reminds me of vintage, pricey Patou Pour Homme. Still can't figure out why this isn't a massive BN favorite, especially at current affordable prices. Warm, woody, ambery, a nice shot of oak moss. It's from a long lost time and place when men could go into a drugstore, spend less than $10, and come out with a very nice, high quality scent. Old Spice is the only remaining scent in that price/value range. If you love vintage fragrances, especially men's classics from the '50s-'60s, That Man is a must buy.

    This starts off with a gently refreshing lemon-bergamot note with a bit of petitgrain, that later on passes through some mild floral notions. The drydown commences after the first fifteen minutes and is characterised by wood and moss, making this a traditional barbershop fougère. Some musk hints are in the base, but they remain in the background, is never cloying, and the initial touch of gentle freshness never completely disappears. Although a very traditional barbershop scent, it lacks any real soapiness on my skin.

    This is a very discrete and versatile nice fragrance. Projection and silage are ok, and the longevity is very respectable at over five hours.

    Revlon’s That Man is definitely a blast from the past… It presents a gentlemanly arid herbal / wood resinous accord softened by a background of masculine mixed floral texture. It’s an accord that I had enjoyed many times in the distant past and I like it even better now than I did fifty years ago. Undoubtedly masculine, and if it’s outdated, I certainly don’t care because, as uncomplicated as it is, it smells so great. Easy to wear… Easy to accomplish anywhere from subtle to powerful projection simply by adjusting the amount applied... Linear… Moderate longevity… Another wonderful classic drugstore fragrance that I wish was still in production.

    The header states that this is in production, but I'm not sure that's accurate. It is, however, available via ebay. Definitely of the old school, it's Revlon's best man's scent. It is unlike anything in the current mainstream marketplace, although it is in the vein of British Sterling or Jovan Sex Appeal, both of which are still available. It has a creamy floral undertow more typical of the masculines from decades past (Tabac, Baron) and pretty good longevity. For less than $20, it's easy to recommend this modest classic.

    A crisp, clean scent. Not pretentious, not cloying -- just pleasant. I get a LOT of compliments whenever I wear this one.

    Too bad this one's discontinued. I buy it often when it comes up on eBay for a reasonable price.

    One of my all-time favorite less expensive scents.
