Note: Review is of the current version
Dry, dusty lemon opening followed by a mossy-woody-patchouli accord with an abstract leatheriness that persists into the dry down. The composition feels somewhat flat, dull, and lacking in depth and richness. It shares olfactory ranges with Versace L'Homme, rather than New York or Bois du Portugal.
More frankly, it smelled like a poor reformulation of an erstwhile respectable fragrance. I'm not sure whether it was the particular store tester I tried. Based on my experience, one is better off with New York, New York Intense, or Bois du Portugal (which are all vastly better in every respect), or the vintage version of L'Homme. Even the version of L'Homme from 2012 that I had would be no worse.
A classic citrus top powdery drydown fragrance. This belongs to a hallowed club of old style fragrances that include Chanel PM Concentree, Bugatti, PdN NY. Creed's Bois de Portugal vintage versions is also a member of this club.
Everyone should have at least one of them (vintage version) or if you are like me get them all.
For Tiffany the current version is good enough but for others vintage is the way to go

A sweeter, slightly more powdery version of vintage Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree. I can smell it persistently as I am wearing it, which is nice.
I was bouncing around in this while my friends were suave(ing) the young ones with Fahrenheit. My playground was with the older ones. For me, it carries an elegance somewhat beyond, similar to that of Ambre Nuit. Call it a Fred Astaire kind of masculinity. Dries down to a wonderful Sandalwood, a Fine powder, a plus Memories.

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.
