Pure class. Tiffany for Men starts off a little ssweet for my taste, but immediately starts to morph into a very sophisticated blend. Its basenotes are clean and sext. Sillage is almost perfect... if you are in my personal space (within 18 inches, pehaps), you definitiely smell TFM. Acress the conference table you won't smell me. Longevity? I applied in the morning after my shower. I can still smell it the next morning. Timeless. Classic.

This is precisely what a classy men's cologne smells like. If you're looking for a well-crafted cologne, perfect for the office and (especially) business meetings or outings at night, this is the one. I don't think this is going to be anyone's "dream" cologne, but its a great scent.
I was recently in Chicago and went in to Tiffany's to finally get my hands on this much heralded cologne. Ironically I went with Tiffany Sport but changed my mind a few hours later after realizing that it was an upscale version of CK One. I also realized after having tried both on my skin, the presence of the original Tiffany was much more interesting. Indeed it is very much like Pour Monsieur by Chanel, and that's a good thing. The projection and longevity are key differences. Tiffany lasts a long time, but stays in the background close to the skin. Just when you think it's dead, it comes right back. You get that nice whiff of fragrance every so often. The drydown is powdery and evolves nicely with time. There are a lot of people who believe this is a cologne only meant for formal occasions, but I think it can worn for just a night out by those who want to project an appreciation for the finer things in life.
I don't do many reviews, but I feel compelled to add one for Tiffany for Men. I cannot recommend this fragrance enough. Off the top of my head, I can't think of a more well-blended men's fragrance. Every note and transition is seamlessly blended. It is "just right" in every category: projection, longevity, and sillage, you name it. If you love cardamom, nutmeg, oakmoss and amber, you owe it to yourself to give this one a try. Others have described this one as "powdery." I have to respectfully disagree. I think it has just the right balance of sweetness and dryness. It's a spicy, yet delicate masterpiece. Although it has "Cologne" on the bottle, this fragrance is certainly not cologne-strength. It lasts longer than almost every other EDT I've tried, and in fact, with it's discreet, close to the skin presence, it behaves much more like an EDP. I think it can be worn year-round and would make an excellent signature scent. It can be worn anytime: to work, to school, running errands, to a wedding, to a cocktail party, etc. etc. Some might say Tiffany for Men is a more mature, outdated fragrance, whose best days have come and gone. I'd say that class, elegance, and refinement never go out of style. And these can all be found in Tiffany for Men.
Beautiful, classy, refined, sexy. I prefer it to PDN New York.
To those who want a simple explanation of what this smells like, take vegetables, mix them with sugar and vanilla, and add a tiny bit of mint and spices and you get this. It's basically candied vegetables. It's mildly soapy, although not super soapy at all. It starts off like an in your face 70s-80s powerhouse, but that only lasts for 30 seconds and then it turns into a pleasant scent. One of the most stark transitions I've ever seen in a fragrance. You could definitely wear this to work without any problems. Also, it's easily a unisex scent.
Tiffany dresses to impress. Classic chypre structure from the hand of J. Polge. Polge actually steals from himself by tweaking the Chanel Pour Monsieur formula in TfM. It's a striking balance of fresh (bergamot/citrus), sweet (vanilla/amber) and spice(rosewood/oak moss) that will charm anybody in sniffing distance. It's been altered a bit over the years but it still sings like a canary on a sunny day. Not bad from a company that brainwashes men into buying overpriced jewelry for their significant other.
If you should ever need a seamless, very pleasant, teflon coated lightly scented, gentle fragrance - this is it! Tiffany for Men is everything that many of these reviews repeat over and over. It is sophisticated, refined, formal, well blended, modern. I like it, but I rarely want to smell this special and cultured. It took me so long to be OK with letting the chips fall where they may and accepting moments as they are. I feel like a traitor to the postmodern world to enjoy something so streamlined with all the parts working as if they were one. Smells a lot like Pour Monsieur Concentree but it is creamier and ends up being softer - how is that possible?
Tiffany For Men is Class in a way that it`s not produced anymore. For me it sits between an execution of a Guerlain and a Chanel fragrance, and it`s a fragrance that would suit mens and womens. It starts with a classic citrus accord, bright, sliglhty green and bitter, and at this moment it reminds both of Chanel Pour Homme and Boucheron Pour Homme. Then some powdery aspects join the citrus parts, and at this moment there is an Habit Rouge aura, but more balanced, without the dirty aspects and balanced on the sweet part. There is something slightly balsamic and woody over the citrus and powdery parts. If you like complex fragrances and doesn`t have anything elegant that merges citrus, powdery, woods and resins, Tiffany Men is a strong option to be considered.
Tiffany for Men is a classic masculine fragrance that I'm glad to own. I have to be in the mood to wear it, but it never lets me down. It's a very floral, powdery oriental like Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentrée (released the same year and also by Jacques Polge), however it smells more refined and classy. I usually hate powdery fragrances, but this one is tolerable and complex. Tiffany for Men can be a doozy for many fellas, but when approached with an open mind it's not so bad, and will most likely grow on you over time.
