    Bigelow Barber Cologne Elixir White No. 1585 by C.O. Bigelow Apothecary

    It starts with a wonderfully sharp and natural smelling grapefruit buttressed by some cedar, rose and and pepper. This is a wonderful scent, very high quality ingredients. Sillage is average and as an EDC I get about 5-6 hours longevity which isn't bad for a citrus pepper. Easily worth double it's price if you're looking for citrus pepper this is a no-brainer.

    This is a clean scent, sharp very mild sweetness brought initially by the grapefruit. This is a steal of a deal, buy without reservations.

    Oxygène Homme by Lanvin

    Take an aquatic, add black pepper and voila, Oxygene pour Homme. Not offensive, just nothing mind blowing. A nice safe office scent.

    Citrus & Wood by Yardley

    Very clean and natural smelling little fragrance. Cedar and Lemon dominate the top notes, dries down and you get some more soft woods in the scent. Longevity is just average, but this is also a scent that would be amazing to layer with your favorite light aquatic. Thumbs up for this incredibly natural classic fragrance!

    Oscar de la Renta pour Lui by Oscar de la Renta

    A vile sickening patchoulli bomb, the fragrance equivalent of high shoulder pads, tight blazers and red leather zipper jackets. Interesting perhaps as a historical study, but too dated to be wearable and evokes the excess silliness of all the 80's and their gaudy glory.

    The scent has longevity, but so does mosquito repellant, you'll want this stuff to go away after about half an hour, but it just won't. I mistakenly wore this once to have a co-worker remark "umm oh, is that your cologne" followed by a disgusted expression. I'm forced to agree, this stuff is dated and simply unwearable, avoid it.
