    Default Most accessible barbershop

    I know there are many threads relating to barbershop frags. Are there one or two more accessible than others? (aside from the ubiquitous Rive Gauche)

    Wow. I never thought of Grey Flannel as 'Barbershoppy' . I'll have to revisit that one.

    Jockey Club by Caswell-Massey. I agree with the ??? on Mike's idea about Grey Flannel being "barber shop." I've never thought of it as that. The only thing it has in common with barber shop scents in my mind is that it's inexpensive. Well, basenotes is getting ready to shut down for 12 hours or so; I hope the DTs aren't more than I can bear!

    Well there are three that immediately spring to mind.

    All by Taylor of Old Bond Street:

    Shaving Shop - delightful classic gentleman's cologne in the Chanel Pour Monsieur field and I think better.

    Luxury Sandalwood Cologne - In my opinion the best sandalwood cologne out there, and a ridiculously low price.

    Mr Taylor - No idea what the notes are on this, but it's a very elegant and unusually distinctive cologne.

    All of these three are classic barbershop fragrances. You could buy all three for the price of one niche fragrance.

    I am not sure what "accessible" means in regard to barbershop fragrances, which to me as a group would be accessible in the sense of "approachable".

    Agree Clubman is a universal, and should be immediately recognizable for what it is. Rive Gauche is right up there. Antico Caruso is too, but may not be as "accessible".

    Versace l'homme. It reminds me of the barbershop my uncle owned when I was a kid.

    I think our definition of barbershop scents are very different! I think of warm soapy scents(specially with lavender) as barbershop scents. So I admit these ones:
    -Caron Pour Un Homme
    -Le Male
    -Prada
    -Hypnose by Lancome
    and also some other warm-cool clean scents like
    -Fahrenheit by Dior
    -Grey Flannel
    can be reminiscent of barbershops for me.
