Think about it. Habit Rouge and Eau Sauvage probably weren't created with older men in mind. They were probably imagining a man in his late 20s or early 30s. Isn't it possible that the "old man" or "old lady" smell that we all know and love today is really just the smell of the mid-20th century? Conversely, isn't the "young man" fragrance simply a matter of what has been in fashion since the early '90s, which, in an oedipal way, is defiantly different/opposite to the trends from 40 years prior?
