I guess I was.
I also have the vintage PPH AS and am satisfied with it. I'll take the vintage AS any day over the "New" PPH.
I know "Patou Pour Homme" (original) has been lauded and talked to death on these forums, but I'd like to mention its under appreciated step-sibling "Versailles Pour Homme." Since both originated in...
No, you can't buy the EDT from the Chanel website---only the Concentree.
I have a question. I understand that you can't buy Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT in the United States, you can only buy the Concentree. Where can you buy the EDT if you live in the US? Only on eBay or...
It's a dead issue to me.
If its only sold online then it can't be sampled at the Bergdorf's fragrance counter. In addition, since samples will not be available online from Bergdorfs, then there will be an enormous leap of...
I've always been partial to fougere scents, and I mean the original concept of fougere , not its metamorphosis over the years. I know there are fougere soaps by Penhaligons and Valobra (can't get...
Yes, its the squat bottle in the front. Most likely 4 ounces splash. Couldn't be Patou Pour Homme Prive as this pic came out in 1986.
Check out this Charles Bronson video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0Jxu9zTJ2A. At 13:53 there is what looks like vintage Patou Pour Homme and Monsieur Rochas (among others---looks like there is...
I need a good cheap scent to wear after the gym. I was using Speed Stick Deodorant for years but the scent has really grown old on me and I wanted a change. I currently use Sir Irisch Moos...
Patou Pour Homme reissue.
I just received a sample from First In Fragrance. It initially smells vaguely like Neutrogena Raindance shower gel. There's a fruity note, maybe melon. Rather linear--I don't really detect much...
I just received a sample from First Fragrance. It initially smells vaguely like Neutrogena Raindance shower gel. There's a fruity note, perhaps melon. I don't like it. I've smelled the vintage, and...
It was produced in 1984 by Clinique. Fantastic scent.
I know this fragrance has been discontinued for quite some time, but I wish there might be a similar fragrance that is more accessible and certainly cheaper. Bottles of this stuff go for big bucks,...
I used to collect really unknown vintage fragrances and I remember this one. It was a mini bottle, possibly only about 10 ml, a classic chypre. It is French, and the name was based on the...
Well pelle, you got it directly from the horse's mouth or horse's "nose." You can't get that information any more authoritatively than from Thomas Fontaine !
Having had a very large collection, I've winnowed it down to only about 6 or 7 vintages/classics. I keep them in their original boxes in a shelf in my refrigerator. The stuff I use regularly (not...
We need to hear from "bokaba." He started the whole campaign to reissue PPH.
Gucci Nobile<-------->Lauder For Men
Lauder For Men.
I ordered a SAMPLE from First In Fragrance rather than the whole bottle.
Leonard Pour Homme.
Jean Patou Lacoste Eau De Sport (not to be confused with Lacoste Eau De Sport; this fragrance was from Jean Patou, not from Lacoste). Long discontinued. I have a 3.3 ounce frosted, boxed, spray...
I dunno...I don't like to get TOO close to another guy. As long as he doesn't stink up the place.
I'm disappointed in RazoRock Colonia Provenzale. It doesn't have that uplifting drydown of AdP. While AdP has a sweet drydown, RazoRock smells kind of sour, and it doesn't last as long as AdP. I...
Well, to tell you the truth, I also have the dollar store Old Spice aftershave clone that smells more like the original. I like to alternate that one with the reformulated Old Spice Cologne. Did I...
I like the smell of the reformulated Old Spice better than the original. Its more flowery and less spicy, but I like it like that.
I have been using a cobalt blue American and a green English poison bottle with red morphine label as reed diffuser bottles. I don't think I'm the only person who thought of this.
Its probably this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-John-Weitz-Gift-Set-With-3-8-oz-Cologne-3-8-oz-Aftershave-/380409375665?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58922a6bb1
I neglected to say that in my refrigerator are 4 bottles of "go to" scents that I use on rare occasions. They are: vintage Equipage EDT, vintage Chanel For Men EDT (not "Pour Monsieur"), Jean Patou...
Just call me an old fogie.
You're right........I may be back. Never say never.
Well, the Old Spice clone from the Dollar Shop is supposedly the closest to the original Old Spice scent. I'm trying to get as back to basics as I can, I guess. This is just my opinion, but I feel...
I've decided to just drop my former obsession. I just use Irish Spring Deodorant and slap on some dollar store Old Spice clone and call it a day.
What is the big deal about this? I see outrageous prices for this on eBay.
Is this fragrance discontinued? I can't find it at any website. Even e-bay doesn't have it.
The vintage version smells limey. The Indian version has no lime smell that I can determine. I can't determine if the vintage has gone "off." I'm not an expert about that. But it would seem odd...
There is a difference. I received a vintage bottle and the Indian version does smell different.
Jean Patou Lacoste Eau de Sport
Just received this set. Really brings back memories. Wonderful scents. The aftershave is different from the cologne. Too bad Yardley discontinued these fragrances. These retro scents seem a lot...
I think "stale ashtray" best describes the basenotes in MAX FACTOR WOOD GRAINS SANDALWOOD.
It is quite linear: smoky and bitter to the "bitter end." No sweetness at all. Longevity, unfortunately, is very good.
I have read a thread kindly submitted by one of the respondents to my initial thread. Here is part of it:
Sandalwood, Santalum austro-caledonicum, Tigerflag – The species names are confusing....
If I had to qualify my impressions, I would have to say that there is no SWEETNESS in this fragrance. It smells like something is burning.
The reason why I like to collect vintage fragrances is...
Regarding the replies I have received so far: I bought this already and have given my responses regarding the smell.
CHANEL FOR MEN (original formula before they changed the name to CHANEL POUR MONSIEUR)--I have the vintage stuff
I have had an opportunity to purchase a bottle of Max Factor Wood Grains Sandalwood. From what I have learned, it came out in 1980. It looks like a run-of-the-mill drugstore fragrance to me. From...
Clinique Tailoring for Men
Jean Patou Lacoste Eau de Sport
It okay, but give me the original GPH anytime.
I'm generally not a believer in reformulations, but in this case, I make an exception. The reformulated version (since 1990) is by far superior to the original. The drydown is very unique.
for obvious reasons
You must go to eBay and buy the bottle that states "Chanel for Men"(not "Chanel pour Monsieur"). This is the original formula before it was changed in the '80's. If you see a picture of a bottle...
Its because these fragrances are OF THEIR TIME and reflect current trends. Since I collect vintage, its an opportunity to experience, on a very economical level, what fragrances were in vogue at the...
"Lonestar Memories" by Tauer
"West" by Faberge (discontinued and hard to find)
On the Rocks EDT by Fragonard: is anyone familiar with this? I bought this blind on eBay. The seller wasn't sure if it was a male or female fragrance. I don't know what year this was brought out...
Rugger Cologne by Avon. I just like it.
There's something about this fragrance that's so different from other citrus fragrances. Its sweet and powdery, but there's something else in the mix that I just can't put my finger on. The closest...
I like it.

Thanks, Simon Moon. Then, I suppose that this is real, unadulterated lavender.
Balafre by Lancome
Sagamore by Lancome
I bought this more out of curiosity, and a sense of completion rather than anything else. Since I already have Monsieur Lanvin, Monsieur Lanvin Vetyver (original formula), and Monsieur Lanvin...
I have the vintage and newer versions of Moustache. The vintage is EDC, while the newer version is EDT. There is a definite difference between the two versions. I prefer the vintage, as its much...
See this photo for the original formula bottle
Actually there are two version of Eau de Patou: for Men (the cylinder one like Rive Gauche) and for Women (the pyramid-like one).
There is no Eau de Patou for Men. Please refer to the...
Its an old school bright chypre that has good longevity and sillage. Unfortunately, its very hard to find these days.
The date on the box states: 1951. The box is very old and smells like old cigarettes. The fragrance is sweet but definitely in the male realm. Its a nice novelty item, very un-PC in its sexual...
It states "Aftershave" on the box...........
It really does tingle.

Well, why are there?
Patou pour Homme is considered an oriental.
Yes. I have a vintage bottle of Christian Dior Eau Fraiche, and of course, it was not a lighter fragrance of anything else, and stood out on its own. It was a "don't ask don't tell " unisex...
There were a lot of eau fraiches brought out in the '60's and '70's. Christian Dior debuted its eau fraiche even earlier, in 1952.
I bought That Man as the reissued fragrance. I believe Revlon reiussed this in the '80's. I was not able to buy the vintage version from the '60's. Hopefully, the reiussed version was not...
Chanel for Men (before the reformulation and universal name change to Chanel pour Monsieur in the '80's).
That Man by Revlon
Guilty here. Even though I collect only vintage and discontinued, I can be a sucker for a classy bottle, even if its a blind buy with absolutely no reviews. Take, for example, "That Man" by...
I'd appreciate it if anyone could point out which Heritage is more vintage (older), Heritage A or Heritage B. Thanks.
It would be more courteous of you to post your thread here.
