    I'd second Ungaro II, and also recommend Maitre Perfumer et Gantier's Or Des Indes.

    Powdery, with a huge dose of opoponax, a slightly metallic musk note, sandalwood, amber, vanilla, and an interesting green lemony note woven throughout thanks to the geranium. If you've smelled Prada's Infusion d'Homme, imagine that only with a very warm instead of cool character, more powder, and more opulence.
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    i would say Rochas Lui could be a perfect choice for you. Here are some topics and reviews about it. I am using it not as an every day scent and think that it belows to the "glamorous" category you did described. Fine Woods especialy cedarwood, Neroli, Patchouli. Potent but elegant and a fine evening scent.

    Itīs not as masculine as described below:

    "Lui, the new men's fragrance from French brand Rochas…is yet another testimonial to the move away from the watery, citrusy scents of recent years towards classic, strong and instantly recognisable fragrances. "Lui is for a man who wants to be a man. It is fresh and woody with amber notes, certainly not an all-purpose fragrance," said a Rochas spokesperson." (7/18/2003)

    Let me underline Tiffany for Men from the poster just above. It is one of my favorite formal scents and based on your original post I think it fits the bill to a T.

    Iquitos springs to mind (and not just because it's by Alain Delon).

    Chamade EDT or pure parfum (Guerlain)
    Coco EDP (Chanel)

    These are very different from each other, but I would consider them both very strong and glamorous.

    for the kind of '20's Hollywood' glamour you mention, i'd suggest Caron Tabac Blond, Guerlain Mitsouko (or perhaps Samsara), Trumper's Eucris is glamorous in more of a debonaire, James Bond style, English and masculine. Black Orchid is definately glamorous, and Versace's Crystal Noir is glamorous in a wonderfully bad-taste, noveau-riche way - not sure about it on a man though.

    Also try one of my favourites, Michael Kors Michael for Men - very masculine glamour, dried fruit and brandy and tobacco. Very decadent. and D'orsay's Le Dandy is truly fabulous.
