Another Thumbs up for Monsieur Polge.
The opening is quite harsh, I'm so familiar with this formula Jacques is wont of doing, I tend to identify him as the Dry Down specialist.
Azzaro Pour Homme comes to mind as-well as Pour Monsieur, the classic powder and oakmoss duo in the foreground.
I see it as a formal nightwear scent, preferably for a tweed herringbone suit. I'm a young adult myself and have no problem wearing this scent. Completely inoffensive, wonderful longevity and a dry down that bears a timeless badge akin to the gentleman. You'll be compelled to sniffing your wrist constantly.
First review.... I'll try and keep it short.
Tiffany for Men is one of the most powerful scents I've experienced.
It starts with powder.... and a green note.... then gets a bit sweeter and floral with powdery iris/nutmeg. Then after quite a while it gets creamy and you're suddenly hit with a deep, spicy sensation which is almost overpowering but then disappears and leaves a tonka powder but all this is over a very long time indeed.
I wore this to the office yesterday... No comments either way.... But I will say one spray to the chest is plenty. It's incredibly potent and is more suited to wrist for me. Easily got 12 hours out of it and it sticks to your clothes, given them a nice warm smell even the next day.
Everyone should sniff this at least once. I'll be honest though and say if I bought again I might just stick to sample size - you need very little and I feel something a little lighter such as Pour Monsieur would suit the office. This will however be my go to for special occasions and cold winter nights.

Tiffany For Men (vintage):
For completely unknown reasons, I always avoided reviewing Tiffany For Men. There's something about it that hardly translates into words but, when it comes to classics from the golden age of masculine perfumery, this is definitely one of my pillars.
A rich and complex spicy-woody concoction with an intoxicating mossy presence and an endless ambery-woody drydown. Somehwere in the middle of an hypothetical triangle composed by Parfums De Nicolai New York, Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree and Habit Rouge. More complex than PDN's New York, sort of the good-looking twin of Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree and definitely less sweet than Habit Rouge yet, somehow, related to all three. A masterwork of restraint and elegance for anyone who doesn't want to give up on character and presence.
There's really not much to add here if not that anyone who's into fragrance more than simply for *panty-dropping* matters, shouldn't miss the chance to at least experience these masterworks from the past before they're gone forever.
The opening scent returned me to my youth, whence my mother and two sisters adorned themselves in sillage of high quality perfumery. The longer Tiffany sat, the more exquisite did she glow. Hard chased to imagine a more luxuriant redolence. This scent is so aptly lush, I would feel matters incongruent to not be well dressed after its application.
I believe Tiffany for men is a wonderful collection of the colognes you'll find now fermenting in the old avon pick-up truck decanters.
Powder. Like, oh dear lord powder. Maybe a bit of moss here and there to let you know it's make-up powder that's been out for quite a bit. Perhaps your grandfather or grandmother tipped over a bit of their Avon collection. Perhaps goodwill was having a sale and you decided that the decanter look cute. But oh lord, what's that smell on the way home?
In addition, it doesn't go away. Both sillage and longevity are designed to remind you for the entire day that you just bought Tiffany for Men.
