As to the original query about hardest to find frag, a quick story. I had read in here about the legendary Patou Pour Homme. In a back forth of PMs with another member, he happened to mention he had seen a bottle of Patou Pour Homme in an odd little store in an office complex.
It was 2 miles from my house, so I lept in the car. It was a teeny tiny convenience store to service a twin tower office complex. We're talking about place smaller than most average bedrooms. It was off the street and has no real "walk-in foot traffic;" just mostly visited by people who work in the office towers on weekdays.
For some odd reason, he had small case filled with colognes. I searched and didn't see it. Finally asked him, and he had it behind the counter. Sold it to me for $46.
I got it home and tried it out. I fear the years of being in a store which is not temperature controlled all the time probably has mostly "killed" it. It has enough of its presence left to give me an idea of the scent, but seems to have very little longevity, which isn't what I would expect from this scent.
It is very "perfumey." I think part of it's appeal and mystique is that when it was originally available, it had a very refined and high end male perfume scent not unlike Amouage Gold, or Clive Christian Number One. But,
it was available as a standard designer scent for around $60 or so.
In terms of "attitude," it's kind of like Vintage Tabarome or maybe Trumper's Eucris. It doesn't smell
like either, but it's very old school-ish, manly and for many here, way too "mature" in feel. For most of you in this thread, this isn't the way "dad" would smell, more like "grandad." I kind of like the vibe of it, but were it still in good shape, I wouldn't wear it often. It feels a bit mature and formal at times even for me (and I'm kind of mature guy).
(Final note: When I first posted about this find in February, many local BNers PMed me for location of store and descended on the poor fellow who runs the place. There is no more Patou Pour Homme there, and if he had anything else worthwhile, it was no doubt snapped up.)
