    Default Re: Alpha Male Fragrances?

    these alpha men you mention, NJ's own 5 foot tall Bruce Willis especially have every thing done for them. They have a team that obsesses over them so it's hard to guess what they wear but it isn't cheap and the markup before Bruce, and I'm just using him as an example, gets the bill must be astronomical. I wonder what he's left with after he gets 30 million for a movie and pays everyone working for him.

    I think the English have their own breed of Alpha Male and my guess is that they would wear the sauve, Dunhill for Men, from 1934.

    Hard to believe Dunhill is that old. My husband wears it, and it's magnificent.

    It has been about 6 months since I originally posted this question. I've tested most of the fragrances suggested and these are the ones I've found best matched what I was looking for:

    - Santos Concentrée (1982) by Cartier

    - Polo Crest (1991) by Ralph Lauren

    - Yatagan (1976) by Caron

    - Polo (1978) by Ralph Lauren

    - Bel Ami (1986) by Hermès

    - Cumming (2004) by Alan Cumming

    - Givenchy Gentleman (1974) by Givenchy

    These fragrances now are highly valued fragrances in my wardrobe.

    Good to hear, I haven't managed to get hold of it. Love old stuff and use Dunhill Edition instead!
