Bulgari's is best .

I edited Classic to traditional in my post ; unable to edit the title however.
I would have to say a traditional Eau de Cologne .
This topic is probably the most overlooked and abused in the world of fragrance.
One of the beautiful characteristics of traditional Eau de Cologne is it can be worn by any age or gender.

So far I've tried Vitalis , Brylcream , brilliantine , and American Crew Pomade which has given the best results , but not enough of the "wet" look.
Going for "Old Hollywood" style .
Is there a hair tonic like Vitalis , only better ?

There was an article about them in the Wall Street Journal ; a sales pitch for sure.
I saw an advert for a new fragrance named "The Beattles" , with a pic of the mop topped fab four in the backround ; I think from Burberry's .
Forget about that ; it can only be pure marketing.
