Nope, not Lagerfeld Classic. Good guess (definitely gets the old lady wisecracks), but that one is talked about a lot on the Mens Forum.
Here's another clue: it was released after 1990, but still has a very old school smell. It smells like it could have been released some time in the 1970s.
Balenciaga pour homme?
Not Balenciaga PH. The one I'm thinking of isn't discontinued or obscure.
Remember - OLD LADY SMELL!
I'll wait for two more guesses before I throw another clue out.
Rochas Lui ? If not, I´ve at least promoted this hidden retro vibe gem! Go out and sample!
Hm, "old lady smell" is a personal perception. Here are some masculine frags described as "old lady" but it's not how I myself smell them - Antaeus, Grey flannel, Habit rouge???
A Priscilla Presley scent?
Opium Pour Homme?
None of those.
Here's another clue: it's a chypre. And it's obviously a chypre - no one would debate this, trust me.
Man, I love this frag. I can't believe I'd gone five years without replenishing this jewel.
Not Jaipur. Jaipur is an oriental. This one is definitely a chypre, without question.
