I got a decant last week, the perfume is very nice; lemon, sandalwood and I feel some incense too. The real problem is the staying power; it is complete gone in 30 minutes, perhaps the low quality of the decant??? I suggest you to try before buying.
Robert Mitchum, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr - my kind of guys. It's no surprise, then, that a 1957 effort called Gravel A Man's Cologne would appear on my radar. Until recently I had been unsuccessful in locating this grail...Parfumerie Jacqueline in San Francisco has it on the shelf and I had to get it. The smell is indeed a man's cologne, reminiscent of Caron's Pour Un Homme after shave - sharing it's nutty, vanilla base, with sandalwood featuring in place of PuH's lavender. The downside is the longevity and sillage. On me it fades within a couple of hours and it becomes very close to the skin. With the potential of the opening, this is a disappointment and at $60 US, I frankly expect a bit more horsepower. But it does smell quite good and any bottle with actual gravel at the bottom can't be all bad.
