    M7, Kouros, and for some reason, Drakkar Noir.

    He looks just like all my english/drama/jazz/pol-sci/philosophy- major friends. Amazing how some styles never change.

    I would have to say Guerlain Vetiver -- earthy, organic, fresh and somewhat moody.

    Keeping in mind some historical observation - lavender!
    maybe Creed or Goutal.

    But the picture itself gives me another thought - SMN Peau d`Espagne, or even Caron Parfum Sacre
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    Gucci pour Homme. Dont know why... He just looks like that kinda guy. Obviously nothing too masculine, but then again nothing too femine. So Gucci pour homme. The ear ring looked bit girly and so did the lips. Then again, he had wery "straight" clothes. Boring actually. So Gucci pour Homme

    Habit Rouge, Voleur de Roses or Opium for women.
    He looks like he's completely in touch with his femenine side...

    Oh man, what came to my mind immediately is Royal English Leather.

    Dig the earring that old smoothie Willie Shakespeare is wearing! *In this picture, he looks like a very interesting guy (as if the author of some of the world's greatest literary masterpieces could ever be considered uninteresting!)

    Given the period, I'd bet on Hungary Water, a cologne based on rosemary, reputed to have been devised by none other than St. Elizabeth of Hungary herself, hence the name!

    Just in case anyone is interested, the portrait is the famous Chandos portrait of William Shakespeare (1564-1616), named after the 17th/18th century aristocratic owner of the portrait, James Brydges, 1st Duke of Chandos (1673-1744). It's one of the National Portrait Gallery's prized possessions.

    My candidate for a match: Czech and Speake *No. 88*, naturally.
