    Default replacement for hugh parsons traditional blue

    Hello all,

    I'm looking for a fragrance very similar to hugh parsons traditional blue but available widely. I have noticed that 'traditional blue' has disappeared from nordstroms, the only place that used to carry it. Quite a shame. Any other scent that has the same fresh, clean but sophisticated smell with just the right level of spicy woodiness unlike your typical 'aquatic' scent.

    cheers,
    S

    Just a question. The last time I went into Nordstroms looking for it, they didn't have it for display or even in the glass cases. But when I asked them, they had it in a stock drawer and had quite a few bottles. Have you asked for it there? Plus you can still get it very cheap at Beautyencounter.com

    Ulta carries it if you have any of those in your town.You might want to try Azzaro Now Men if you want to try a different version of what you describe. Or, you know, order it online where it's cheaper and tax-free.

    Agree 100%

    Besides, you really don't want to stray too far from the Hugh Parsons, imo... It's one of the best scents of its type...

    Hugh Parsons Blue is a great one!

    Why look for a replacement? Just order it onliine. There's no lack of online dealers.

    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye
