Strangely this is one of my favorite scents but I thought it shouldn't have been named 'Wall Street'.I'm visualizing Felix Warburg puffing a cigar and saying to one of his staff 'So Kaganovich is enduring a forced famine and agricultural collectivization?...great!'.The scum of Wall Street and their usury system and cultural overrepresentation to privilege their own people.This cologne says the European/European descent male all the way.It's very mature and sophisticated.It's not a green scent because it has no forest vibe but a very aged character I agree with other reviewers on.Picture standing in a dimly lit dining room with with wooden panel baseboards,a chandelier,and mounted animal heads on the wall.Wall Street smells like leather and spices,a little cedar but start to pick up through the sharp citrus.Tobacco and civet or castoreum as it has a musky finish to this scent overall.By no means is Wall Street a clean smelling cologne but it combines sophistication of Polo Green with a dirty and aged character that a Yatagan wearer could appreciate.A darn shame it's discontinued.
i used to wear this in the early 90's as i worked in a bank. i loved it then and just picked some up recently and love it now. if only i could find it in a spray as opposed to splash.
here's hoping the Victor Co will bring this cologne back and with a tad more longevity.
cedar, leather, tobacco, and citrus make for a very nice scent. it smells authentic and not cheap. if anyone out there has this in a spray and would like to deal please contact me.
It's a musty fougere with a fascinating, high-keyed cedar reminiscent of sage and dill pickles - not unpleasantly, just enough to give it a touch of piss and vinegar. It's like wearing a tailored business suit with the first three buttons of your shirt undone. Pretty dashing.
Wall Street smells to me like Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme with more notes. The fact that I acquired both blindly within two weeks of each other is uncanny. The fact they have identically poor longevity is eerie. Wall Street features that same sort of ivy/tea scent that dominates the Bulgari offering but it's smokier, spicier, mustier...like it belongs in a low-lit drawing room. It's such a strange juxtaposition of old money and fresh vigor that despite being a product of the 80's I can't call it dated. I enjoy this, and if it performed a little better I'd consider tossing my bottle of Bulgari. But hey, maybe they'll layer well.
In redux - considering their similar structures and performances, if Bulgari Pour Homme Extreme is a silver rum, Wall Street is a gold. Make sense?
I love you Wall Street, it's a "go to" scent for work or out-and-about on the town.
I get cedar out of this but not synthetic, cloying, heavy or cheap!
SirSlarty is right when he mentions its longevity, it is not long but we all know when it comes to scents it's better to go light more so than heavy.
They did choose a good name for this, reminds me of a gentleman's study room or a gentlemen's club lounge area where everything features wood or is wrapped/bound in leather.
I still can't believe what a hidden gem this is! Go out and get it and prepare to stand out and feel great for a low price!!!!!!!!!!
