They also make a men's cologne called 'Classic'. It might possibly have the same smell.

1934 is a floral leather and Edition is spicy citrus. There are no similarities.
What about the current version? Is it any good?
Dunhill Edition is nice, a spicy-sweet clove & citrus scent. Very old-fashioned.
The Dunhill smells more like saddle soap than leather jacket and there is absolutely no cigar tobacco note or any tobacco for that matter. Equipage is the only 70s fragrance that has prominent notes...
ONLY for others? None.
Yes! Equipage makes the most sense. Please give it a try.
I wouldn't know what exactly he was wearing but from your description of the smell, it sounds a lot like vintage Polo. Was it in the late seventies? because Polo wasn't released until '78.
Rive Gauche pour Homme
Patchouli > Cacao > Sandalwood > Star anise
New West by Aramis
Please avoid the diors, they smell juvenile and feminine. I would be wary of using terre, the risk of coming across smelling like floor cleaner is too damn high, and for this reason I would avoid...
Positively strange. I have the current EdT version and it is very potent. Longevity is phenomenal and its projection and sillage is tenacious, the EdP given its nature should have slightly tamer...
DHI smells very feminine. If you don't mind smelling like a combination of lipstick, chocolate and vanilla cake, then by all means go ahead.
Wood, leather, tobacco and non-powdery? You have to try Montale's Aoud Cuir d'Arabie.
Givenchy Gentleman. Its an old school, manly and no-nonsense brew of patchouli, leather and musk. There is nothing remotely hip about it.
Look no further than Jaipur Homme. It is the perfect fragrance to wear at home. It has this relaxing, luxuriating and restorative effect on your senses which makes you feel wholesome and calm. It is...
Tsar smells like leather, tobacco and old money.
That is weird. How does that happen?
This. Also, what do you think about current Polo? Is it at least passable?
Boxed and in a cool & dark place.
Pour un homme. Its the best lavender fragrance.
Salvador Dali pH.
Habit rouge EdT. Smells intimate and soft yet has an outdoorsy edge of leather. I think it has enough citrus to make it wearable in warm weather.
Tuscan Leather. Its easily their best fragrance and the only one that's worth the fat price.
Katie Puckrik & Lanier Smith are the only ones that are worthwhile. The rest are simply boring and don't produce content that is even marginally enjoyable or intelligent.
When you have backup bottles. I'm quite certain that's a foreign concept to the general public.
1. Laid back nice guy - Rochas Man
2. The guy from dos equis commercial - Bel Ami
3. Prettyboy - Dior Homme
4. Muscular tough dude - Aramis for men
5. Flamboyant gay guy - Guerlain Habit...
Dior Homme Intense. It smells so gorgeously feminine.
Cartier Declaration and Armani Eau pour Homme.
Jaipur Homme is classic. MiP is average.
I used to own a hair gel that had a pleasantly smokey tobacco scent that I used to adore, it smelled like cigarette smoke. I was delighted when I discovered that Gucci Pour homme 2 had the same scent...
I have half the number of fragrances you have but I feel the same way. I only truly like about four of them. I think the ideal collection would have only 3-7 bottles.
I wouldn't buy anything from your list. I would instead like to recommend one of the best fragrances for tropical weather, Aramis Havana. It has a good dose of minty tobacco and bay rum. Perfect for...
You should try Eau Sauvage. Its Dior's best. I also enjoy Dior Homme intense. But the moreish vanillic sweetness that plagues most of their recent offerings gets tedious after a while.
Hell yes. Only thing missing is the best leather fragrance money can buy, which is of course Chanel's Cuir de Russie. Will have that fixed by the end of this year, I hope.
Anything with angelica. Its a putrid note.
This post makes me happy. Congrats.
Yes, backups of vintage Rive Gauche pour homme and silver collar DHI. I do have backups of easily accessible perfumes but only as an insurance against future reformulations and discontinuations, as...
Montale's Aoud Leather has a dominant saffron note along with leather and oud. I think it meets the brief and is worth checking out.
I personally do not spray more than 3 times. Anything past 5 is really pushing it IMO. To my nose and most probably to others' as well, the sillage smells much better when application has been...
DH without a doubt. It has a stronger presence of the cardamom, bergamot, patchouli and leather notes which adds some much needed testosterone and helps secure(barely) its place in masculine...
Please do. You won't regret it.
Frompyrgos(Bryan Ross) & Pourmonsieur(shamu). The former, is in my opinion one of the most intelligent, insightful and astute minds in this community. Shamu is of course a superbly eloquent reviewer...
I like it but it is too safe and a touch too sanitary to me. It almost smells robotic. I can picture this being the perfect fragrance for humanoid robots.
Are you looking for a sweet/vanillic/gourmand leather fragrance? If so, please give Cuir Ottoman by Parfum d'Empire a try. It is the best fragrance in this category.
+1 LIDGE. But please don't apply it on your skin, it somehow makes it smell flat and dry. Applying it on fabric seems to bring out the best in LIDGE in terms of smell and performance.
Polo "Green" by Ralph Lauren. This has the kind of tobacco you're looking for but it shares its dominance with leather and patchouli. Smells like an old leather couch where a lot of pipe tobacco was...
I don't get vanilla in Jaipur, if you want vanilla DHI is the fragrance to try. Jaipur to my nose is a combination of cinammon, clove, tobacco, incense and almond(heliotrope). It is very powdery and...
I have the German version. If it smells slightly metallic with a touch of waxy florals and a HUGE dose of soapy leather, you have the right stuff. Dont get coca cola but it does smell golden brown...
Azzaro pour homme for stark and bitter. If you want a brighter and greener alternative checkout Truefitt & Hill Grafton cologne.
Bandit by Robert Piguet
Citrus, vanilla, cacao and sandalwood. It seems like L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme EdT is going to be worth a try.
Leather for me. It could be because I love leathery notes. I've always loved the smell of fine leather, both brand new and well-worn.
There is also a newer version with the same silver label but an all black cap instead of the metal cap. This is the one I own and it dates to 2013. Dont know if it smells different from the older...
+1 Aramis Havana. It is a masterpiece.
John varvatos for men.
Thanks for the insightful reply. The shaving cream and leather combination sounds delightful. And I'm glad that its performance is satisfactory. It has now found itself on my must buy list.
That sounds awesome. I'm a huge fan of barbershop fragrances. How is its performance though? Good longevity and sillage? I hope its not a demeter style novelty fragrance.
+1 Jaipur Homme. The EdP version not the edt.
The current formula is superb. I would categorize it as a leather first with the patchouli playing a secondary, background role. The leather note, which undoubtedly enriched by the civet, is very...
Chanel pour Monsieur.
Givenchy Gentleman. I love this patchouli/leather bomb.
Wow man. That is an awesome buy. Enjoy!
Jaipur Homme. About 20 wears. I wear it when I'm back from work, after a nice hot bath. And also on most weekends.
If you're looking for a summer citrus there are far better options. Check out terre d'hermes(orange), Monsieur de Givenchy(lemon), Bergammoto Marino(bergamot) or Armani Eau pour Homme for a blended...
A spicy citrus with a touch of light powder. I like it but not sure it smells Italian enough as I always associate an 'Italian' fragrance, as in a fragrance that reminds you of the country, to have...
If i had to pick one, leather. I also love fougere, oriental and citrus, in that order of preference.
Fans of Rive Gauche pH should checkout Truefitt & Hill's Grafton. Its RG without the patchouli and with an addition of a bright incense note. Great stuff.
Big bottles of Knize Ten and Chanel Cuir de Russie. Nothing else for 2015.
Havana is a superb tobacco fragrance. I enjoy it immensely. I find its high energy tobacco and fresh, minty fougere notes wear best in the summer heat.
Issey is great. I think an extra 7 dollars for an extra ounce is great value. Go for it.
Merry Christmas. I love you guys.
Dunhill for Men 1934. A soapy leather bomb. The leather smells sanitized and like it has been scrubbed with saddle soap. No birch tar, smoke, fruit or oud here. It is an EdC but the longevity and...
This to me has too much baking quality vanilla that overpowers the delicious chocolate note. The over prominence and cheap quality of the vanilla note ruins what could have been a luxurious, silky,...
Thanks as always Andre. I'm glad this superb fragrance is still in shape. It would be a crying shame if anyone in this hobby were to miss out on experiencing its velvety, rich and smoldering...
I like lidg but lidge is miles better and improves upon every quality of lidg. Its richer, bolder and smells like it is made of higher quality ingredients. Lidg places perfectly in the 'office safe'...
This description most closely matches my impression of Jaïpur. I would also add that its smells very formal but at the same time its sillage is quite relaxing and therapeutic. Its a huge favorite of...
Lol. Had a good laugh. I find Drakkar to smell nice though. A dark, soapy, leather fougere.
I love everything in my wardrobe but wouldn't mind getting rid of them all except Rive Gauche pH and Jaïpur homme. With these two I'm practically set for any situation, weather etc. The rest of my...
The drydown to my nose is chocolate, milk, caramel and a lot of eye burning peaty smoke. The caramel's natural saltiness in combination with the milk is responsible for that curdled effect. Can't...
Its primarily a leather-rose-tobacco. The rose is deep red and rich, smells velvety and slightly sweet. The leather with a slight touch of sultry herbs is what lends Zino its animalic flair, imagine...
Polo by Ralph Lauren(green bottle). A dark, evening fragrance with a bit of freshness. Just go easy on the sprayer, this stuff is potent.
Thanks for the elaborate and insightful review. How would you rank the various versions and now the flanker of d&g ph, purely based on scent.
4711. Use unscented lotion to bolster longevity.
His cologne du Maghreb is so good.
Elegant, polite, boring. Infusion d'Homme.
Get your hands on some tin can RG. La collection RG lacks the dark spicy, smoky, ashen, tobacco-like notes of patchouli and clove that, in tandem with the squeaky clean, bright green, creamy, fougere...
Yeah, what a shame about the bottle. I don't understand why they had to change the bottle design. So what if it was reformulated, so was DHI but Dior didn't strip it of the black tube and smoked...
Eddie, I find your impressions to be promising. What I wanted from this Intenso was a bolder and more prominent presence of tobacco. And I also enjoy soapy scents. Looks like this release is going to...
The edt interests me far more with its delicate balancing of the bright, citrusy top notes and the powdery, rubbery notes of the mid and base. I find the EDP to be linear and generic due to the...
Jaïpur Homme Extrait.
Name: Evening Cologne.
Monsieur de Givenchy. Hands down. Go vintage for a better scent but weak longevity or the reformulated mythique version for boosted longevity but reduced vibrancy and effervescence in smell. But make...
