    Question Hugh Parsons Blue - My holy grail?

    I've been given a reccommendation to try Hugh Parsons Blue by the automated BN system. After reading the reviews, I MUST try this. It has a 4.5 star rating and sounds like an even better Dunhill. That whole classic gentleman thing is my bag, baby!

    Here's the problem...No members willing to swap or decant, and I can't even find it for sale on the internet. Have you ever even seen it in the U.S. let alone tried it? This one just jumped to the top of my list of things I want to try!
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    What makes you think it might be your holy grail?

    PF, a few years ago Nordstrom sold it. I'm kicking myself for not even remembering what it smelled like. I'd bet that it's available online at reasonable prices.

    There's a feature on this site that recommends frags?

    I also really like Hugh Parsons, only problem I had with it was it didn't last that long on my skin. The Nordstrom by me has it.

    Lets see.. I believe Hugh Parsons Blue is as "Traditional"

    http://www.cocolily.com.au/product_i...ucts_id=100593
    http://perfume-4sale.com/detail.cfm/...h-Parsons.html
    http://www.1stperfume.com/hugparsmetsp17.html
    http://www.beautifulperfumes.com/8012543118021.html

    can't vouch for any of these sites, and someone please correct me if I am wrong on the traditional=blue bit!


    Oh and it looks also like there is a new Hugh Parsons not in the directory yet "99 Regent St."

    I found a bottle of Hugh Parsons on eBay once. Unfortunately there was no picture, but I knew there was only
    the yellow and the blue one so I asked about the color.
    The buy it now price was very very low so I bought when the seller said:

    It's blue!!

    Actually I was looking for yellow, but the price was so low I couldn't resist.
    So I got the blue, but not the EdT, but the After Shave.

    Happy shaving ....



    The AS starts quite unbalanced, but gets way better after ten minutes.
    Traditionell barbershop smell, gentlemen!
    Lasts quite a long time, especially for an AS.
    Bought the yellow afterwards anyway ....

    Its currently broken and, if you use certain functions of it, will result in your wardrobe being deleted.

    I am sure Grant will let everyone know about it when its done, but from what I can gather, its still in Suppoerter-only testing mode (and rightfully so).
