    Default YSL Pour Homme, Boucheron

    Hi
    I am looking for an alternative, yet simillar to YSL Pour Homme (1971), Boucheron, Eau Savage, Channel Pour Monsieur.

    Something classy, manly (nothing unisex) and eloquent.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe Monsieur Givenchy

    Make it the original Dunhill or the Art of Shaving's relatively new Lemon.
    There's also the incredibly crisp Terre d'Hermès if you want "classic but daring."

    You should try Caswell Massey's Verbena and/or Penhaligon's Castile.
    Cartier's Declaration might work for you (a tad woody), as might Acqua di Parma (VERY sharp -- and reasonable!).

    Also, I second both Dunhill Edition AND Monsieur de Givenchy.
    (You can't really go wrong with either of these frags.)

    You might try Acqua di Portofino.

    It's like a softer, more refined Eau Sauvage.

    Some great suggestions. May I also suggest Acqua Classica Borsari? Citrus and herbs like the YSL, but a subtle leather drydown.
