    Default "Grown-up" versions of my favorite fragrances

    I am a few years out of college now and am looking to graduate from my old standby colognes as well. I wear each of my colognes well, so I am not trying to reinvent the wheel, simply find better quality substitutes. I am primarily looking for a daytime fragrance to purchase at this time. Please give me the "quality" replacements to the following:

    L'eau d'Issey
    L'eau Par Kenzo
    Aqua di Gio
    Eternity
    Curve

    Geir and Creed Green Irish Tweed would eat those other frags for breakfast

    You migh like Creed Millesime Imperiale, but all Creeds are spendy. If you want something fresh but earthy, check out Guerlain's Vetiver. Very unique and wearable.

    And welcome to the board!

    Thanks for the replies. I was going to mention GIT, but I did not want to "steer" the responses. Spendy is fine, I've only ever competed on price in the absence of quality or value. If it's worth the premium, I'll usually pay it. By the way, is there an underlying scent that is common to the fragrances mentioned? Do any of them fall into a particular group (citrus, woodsy, etc.)? I'm trying to pinpoint why I like them/wear them better than other fragrances. Thanks again.

    I think Kiton Men might be up your alley. It's very sophisticated and reeks class, but it's also pretty versatile. You can dress it down or wear it with an expensive suit. I would classify it as a chypre by nature but the topnotes have a strong citrus accord.

    Bleecker Street and Hamptons are other good scents that I think are some of Bond's few assets.

    Very good suggestions given so far. I'd like to second Kiton and Millesime Imperial--excellent scents. I think they would be likely steps up from those you've mentioned.

    Try the following Creeds (big money, but worth it):

    Green Irish Tweed (Curve)
    Millesime Imperiale (Eternity)
    Neroli Sauvage (Aqua di Gio, L'eau D'Issey)
    Erolfa (L'eau par Kenzo)

    Highest quality fragrances for grown-up mature guys with good taste in fragrances (like me, hehe ;D ).

    Also: Creed - Erolfa

    Personally I have no problems with Curve, other than duration. If it lasted longer, I'd wear it more often. I'd say Green Irish Tweed as well.

    I'm thinking Pasha as well for some reason, possibly XS.
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava
