    Question Help!- Giorgio Beverly Hills

    I was at the local drugstore and stopped to scoff at their fragrance selection ( Yeah, 'cause I'm a perfume snob after reading from Basenotes, don'tcha know!) I saw something that reminded me of my childhood in the 80's. That familiar yellow and white striped box containing Giorgio. I saw the price... $14.99. I decided to hold off on buying until I read some of the reviews and got a few opinions ( After all, that 15 bucks could be part of a down payment on the tax of the cap off a bottle of Amouage)

    Is this the same juice of yesteryear that you couldn't help but seeing EVERYWHERE? Is it still any good? Was it ever good? Worth the 15 bucks? I guess the box would look good in my collection if nothing else...

    It has recently been released - and IMO the new juice is just as good as the old juice. I think it is a great buy.

    Not a surprising statement from a man with a bottle of Kouros in his avatar. I'll have to head back there tomorrow. They are having a buy one, get one half off sale too. Just have to find something else there I like, don't have, and can't get way cheaper online.

    Fans of this potion have Elizabeth Arden Co. to thank for resurrecting this baby, as well as many other great powerhouse scents that would have been left to die otherwise (e.g., Z-14, Sung Homme, Bijan Men, etc.). Also, they haven't screwed with the formulas either.

    Really... maybe I'll just buy 2 bottles for $22.50 and wear the hell out of it! I am always looking for cheap ( but good ) fragrances so I don't use up the pricier / hard to find / and discontinued stuff I have.

    I agree with Dimitrios on the 2 times a week - the stuff is so strong I find I get olfactory fatigue if I wear it two days in a row. I need to spread it out a bit.

    On the other hand, I tend to go with 7 sprays!

    Giorgio for Men is a great choice, I wore it daily for more than twenty years.

    The reformulation is superb. It is still my favorite fragrance.

    I just got back with a bottle... unfortunately the buy 1 get one half off sale didn't apply to this. Oh well. Still a bargain at twice that price. I have to agree that it is pretty good stuff and that 4 oz. bottle will last a while. I'll pick up another one next time I'm down that way, too.

    Now that is dedication! Most Basenoters' #1 scent seems to change almost weekly.

    I am against uninformed blind buys as well. I would make an exception in this case, however, as I never found a suitable replacement.

    Here is a thread I started early in my Basenotes journey before Giorgio for Men was resurrected:
    Replacing Giorgio for Men (R.I.P.)

    (shamu1, this thread should help explain my obsession!)

    In a PM, another member suggested Lauder for Men which actually came closest in 'feel' to Giorgio for Men.

    I agree that I can't think of a particular scent that smells a lot like it. The best way I can describe it to my nose is that it has a very prominent moss base note, which I can smell throughout its duration and for me is its definining note. It is obviously an '80's scent, but not outdated. The mossiness is mixed with a very heavy and sweet amber or honey note, with a good deal of patchouli to give the whole scent some spiciness. To me, Giorgio is very heavy, herbal and sweet. The moss dominates for me. The closest scents I can think of would be either Eau de Monsieur (Annick Goutal) or Gianfranco Ferre Man, mainly because of their strong moss notes, but even those are quite different from Giorgio. Giorgio is much stronger and long lasting than either of those. Giorgio For Men has sillage like no other scent, as well as 12+ hours of longevity.

    That's what Giorgio smells like to me, though other people may find its other notes to be more prominent than what I've described. It's truly a beautiful scent.

    Don't hesitate for a minute. Snatch it up right away, man! Giorgio for Men by Giorgio Beverly Hills is as nice a powerhouse oriental as you will ever own. It is unique....and absolutely wonderful!!!

    I use to love this and if I catch a bottle at that price, I'll probably snag one as well. I think this is a classic and should be sold in department stores once again with the full range.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I bought this again (retail therapy after a crap day) yesterday. $12.99 for a 4 OZ bottle at Ross. It is so nice! Powerful stuff! How refreshing. I can actually smell my cologne and it appears to be holding up very well.

    Just a classy...OPULENT is the word that keeps coming to mind. Jaipur Homme EDP is another one in this vein, though they smell nothing alike.

    You cannot beat this patchouli bomb for the money. It's always been a good scent....and it still is. Great pickup for the fall-winter rotation.

    The use one good spray to the chest. It dies down after 10 minutes and becomes a very nice masculine.

    Smells very nice from a distance, but up close is a no-go for me; very chemical smelling, up close. As I'm the type who always sprays a fragrance on my arms, and am a constant arm sniffer, this guy just doesn't work out. I'll take Escada pH over this any day, lighter, yet still that powerhouse smell, and very similar smell to Giorgio, but without the harsh chemicals!
