Bois du Portugal...??
Match the cologne to this painting:
Bois du Portugal...??

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.
Nihil Obstat Ben
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!!!
Czech & Speake No. 88

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
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...
Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??
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!)
Yeah! *Czech & Speake No. 88 would suit him very well! *And, of course, Czech & Speake does claim that No. 88 "is based on an original Elizabethan recipe", and old Will was an Elizabethan! * *Originally Posted by ajmc
But 88 is a good choice. By CzeckSpeare.

Nothing else to be said! That settles the question!!

I'm thinking.......Ungaro III
Ambre Précieux by Maître Parfumeur et Gantier
Ambre Soie from the Armani Prive Line
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!
Yr good bud,
"Why spend life seeking that which does not satisfy? Why remain a slave, when freedom waits? Let your life shine; illumine the world with your truth!"
Fiat justitia ruat cælum.
Let justice be done, even if the sky should fall.

Qui nihil potest sperare, desperet nihil.
Let him who can hope for nothing despair of nothing.
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.
Those are some great suggestions!
Cool, thanks everybody! I really appreciate all of your responses.
