Neutral Reviews of 273 Rodeo Drive for Men by Fred Hayman

Brut at half volume!

Disliked Brut in the 60's.

Stayed away in the 70's.

Thought it had disappeared in the 90's.

Now to 273.

Once you get past the Bergamot, Lavender

blast. Things get better.

In the drydown, I find quite a pleasant touch of

Oakmoss. Mmm.

This seems much simpler in composition to the Brut..

I kind of like it.

Sampleworthy. Yes! Bottleworthy. No!

A giant cedar and oakmoss spritz that fades into a musk.

I bought this blind (for $10) because of the reviews that said it smelled like Antaeus. It was not a lie, the top notes do smell like Antaeus. But, upon the drydown it becomes too floral and powdery for my taste.
It's not a bad cologne, great value, but it just doesn't work with me. I'll stick with Antaeus.

Probably one of the most unusual scents I've ever tried. Im still not quite sure what to make of it. Kind of a heavy, smoky-sweet scent but very synthetic smelling. Nothing like Opium or others in its category. I noticed very little development on the drydown. The only reason I purchased it was because I found it dirt cheap. If you're one of those "quirky" fragrance collectors its worth trying, but not at full price. I give it a neutral.
