One Man Show by Jacques Bogart (1980)
I had purchased Patchouli 24 this past January and revisited it today and really think the 1 year of aging has done this wonders. When I first purchased at Barney's LV I was disappointed that it...

When I really want to go back to my earliest barbershop memories I go way back to the original mid-'60's version of Pinaud in glass bottle version of:
Clubman, Clubman Special Reserve, Lilac...
I would say it is closer to Signoricci or Monsieur Balmain, one of the top lemon bursts of all time...
I recently opened a box of M7 that I have had for several years, date released was January 1, 2003. Bottle has single amber brown sticker on back of bottle so I would guess this is an early...
Just order 2 extra backup 4.2 oz bottles thanks to this thread...
Bond No. 9 is way over priced for the quality you are receiving in my opinion
I have purchased from them a few times and always received fast, accurate service. Although their everyday prices are high they frequently have 20-25% off coupons and you can find some real good...
Personally I prefer Golden Edition since it has the Leather note more up front...
Punjab by Capucci
JHL by Aramis
YSL pour homme
Tabac by Maurer & Wirtz (EDC)
Has seen better days due to reformulations but still a classic fougere, not one of great longevity...
The new 100 ml bottle is selling for about $220 in Paris presently, the 125 ml bee bottle is looking like a buy now...
Although not a big fan of this house of these 2 New Haarlem is more original and superior...
Today I started the day with a moderate spraying of Encre Noire by Lalique, 2 light sprays to the chest, 2 on each side of neck at pulsepoints, and 2 sprays on each forearm, so far I have worn this...
Never tried the vintage but recently purchased a bottle direct from Dior, Paris and all those who question the masculinity of Dior Homme need to give Jules a try. Personally I think this is the best...

Try Lorenzo Villoresi Acqua di Colonia (if you can find it) for an herbal/citrus/musk scent that is perfect for summer, also Opium pour Homme Eau d'Orient by YSL...
Spirteuse Double Vanilla by Guerlain
#2 Bond No. 9
Both overrated, overpriced, & underwhelming
Balenciaga Pour Homme.
The initial opening of MB is about as pure a lemon scent that you will find, like a fresh grated rind. It then turns into a dirty lemon much like YSL Pour Homme and pretty much stays that way for...
Highly Recommended, fresh & authentic product and great customer service...
I own the Aramis Devin Country Eau De Colonge Spray in the green box and have no longevity problems at all.
Dunhill for Men 1934 Edition
The only scent released in the past 5 years that I would consider close to a powerhouse would be Mazzolari Lui
I found that Lafes works best for me:
Midnight in Paris by Van Cleef & Arpels
Arabian Nights by Jacques Bogart
Witness by Jacques Bogart
Tuscany by Aramis is what I would recommend.
Havana by Aramis
One of the best bangs for your buck available...
I personally am a big fan of JHL but as mrclmind said there seems to be as many haters as lovers. This is a true powerhouse and one should go very light on the application. This time of year is...
L'Instant (EDP) is my personal favorite from your list, it has gotten me more compliments than any other fragrance in my collection.
On the way is a 6.7 oz bottle of Fahrenheit
Derby by Guerlain
JHL by far, great winter scent and a little goes a long way...
Try Opium Eau d'Orient, retains the best parts of original at about 1/2 the strength, nobody in your HS will smell like this...
JHL by Aramis
Sagamore Pour Homme by Lancome
Totally agree, this one shouldn't have even been associated with Habit Rouge, a sickly sweet mess...
Hard to believe over 60 responses and nobody said Caron Pour Un Homme
Heritage EDP by Guerlain
One of my favorites, just ordered another 2 bottles since this is getting harder to find.
I will never purchase from them again, poor packing, old juice, and non-existent customer service (try having an email answered).
