I have a friend that is searching for a scent that smells like an english gentleman. anyone has any suggestions? he's in his 40s but looks half his age tho (if that helps)
Hello guys, that friend would be me. Just registered myself with BN a min ago. I'm actually in my 30's.
I would imagine Jude Law/Chris Martin (modern English) wearing Midnight in Paris with suit and tie. I'm not too familiar with English history but what would a Victorian English gentleman wear? What define traditional English scent? I did some Googling and it seems like it's lavender and oakmoss. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Lavender and oakmoss are good starting points! Penhaligon's sprang to mind, especially Blenheim Bouquet, English Fern and Hammam Bouquet. I used to wear them but haven't tried them recently and am not up to speed with any reformulations that might have taken place.
Trumper's Curzon is another good one: plenty of oakmoss and a woody/leathery base, but refined.
yep we're both in malaysia. personally i find mouchoir de monsieur very english, but my knowledge and experience in this is pretty limited which is why i posted here.
Pehaligon's Hammam Bouquet and Iris Prima.
That said, I would also say Sartorial.
I don't know just how English to get, because I would also recommend Derby.
