? Ralph Lauren Polo? - though I am not sure if the box is so funny. Discontinued: Monogram, Crest, Chaps (original) and Chaps Musk).
Or... Could it be Halston z-14? It once had some racing car driver's face on the box (my box doesn't). It also has a brother, 1-12 and there are a number of discontinuations in the company's line: 101 etc.
Sex Appeal For Men
Bulls eye Shamu1. Your turn.
Santino, the clue about the silly packaging gave it away immediately.
OK, the frag I'm thinking of now is an undisputed all time classic, old school men's fragrance, released before 1990. It was reformulated several years ago, and to my nose it was a good reformulation that was very similar to the original version of the scent. The one difference I could detect however was that there was noticeably less civet in the current version. What is it? Clue: it is not Givenchy Gentleman.
I know but without that, I guess it would have been very vague. I thought for quiet a while about it, but then I had to give it away!
I think it could be Vetiver by Guerlain, the only problem is that the reformulation is not that good.
I used to think that Vetiver by G was the best perfume of all times, but after the reformulation it drop considerably in my list, I still like it, no questions about it, but it is not what it used to be, mainly because the civet is almost indistinguishable now.
I wish I had smelled older version of Guerlin vetiver to pass a judgement. It may be Pierre Cardin Pour Moniseur which has fleeting civet thing going on. Never smelled original but I am assuming it must be big on civet.
It's neither of those, but you're both in the ballpark. In my book, it could have been Guerlain Vetiver because I love the reformulation, but it's not that one.
Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme? Bad guess, since there doesn't appear to be civet in this one, but castoreum. I have never smelled civet in it, but I can think of nothing else. If it were VC&A pH, I pass my turn to Shamu.
