    Hey Grottola -

    I hope you're well, man. I don't know if you have pulled the trigger on Patrick yet - but, yes...someone of your taste will enjoy this, I believe.

    For a lover of green, aromatic fougeres who enjoy a true, natural smell...this is a bottle to have in your wardrobe. Although great year-round (actually very nice in cool weather with rain), I think this is a great fragrance for Spring and Summer...especially outdoors.

    Wearable and versatile - not offensive. I had hesitations over the last couple of years due to some postings about a barnyard smell (or a peat note). It is simply not there for me. The top and middle notes are green and beautiful - fern and pine (not too many pieces to this great composition) - while the base does have just light hints of sea and grass to give you a true Irish vibe, it is a nice earthy patchouli that I find along with a pleasant moss. Not the "richest" of compositions, but a very great take on what a natural fougere made in Ireland should smell like. Very, very good!!!

    Just a quick note as it is hard to tell for sure which bottle of Worth Pour Homme is pictured, but I own plain dark blue box (which came first) - clear bottle. I based my review on that. Upon realizing soon thereafter, that production had stopped and only a few sellers on Ebay were left with higher bottle prices ($35-40!). But, wait - I just found a great aromatic fougere that was opening up and showing me its true colors after a couple of wearings. I had to search and was able to locate a bottle (still Made In England) from a seller. The picture was of a bottle very similar (same font, but more narrow) - the key is the box. It has white polka dots. It was reasonably priced so I gave it go. Within a few days, I had it and opened it immediately. A perfect match - no reformulation! So, after a bit more research, I stumbled upon a seller in England (as it only makes sense that it is produced there). Here it is - http://www.perfumeshopping.com/worth-pour-homme.html They ship internationally and carry the entire line of Worth Pour Homme products for very fair prices. Shipping from England to California was just $10, although they cannot ship the aerosol due to shipping regulations and credited that to me. I ended up with a great bottle of the Worth PH Body Wash as well for under $5! The After Shave Splash is very nice and goes on very well either by itself or mixed with a little neutral balm - really enhancing the EDT. Plus - old-school screw-on cap splash. I poured most of a cap full on a light layer of neutral balm after a shower. It was brilliant. The 100ml bottle price is under $11 for the EDT and under $8 for the After Shave. So - a set for under $20 plus fair shipping prices.

    I thought for those who like this fragrance in its current formulation, I felt compelled to share. They also have shipping confirmation and professional packaging with signature required.

    Worth Pour Homme is now a "scent" (not just frag) I look forward to. I noticed that quality After Shaves and Body Washes really bring a SOTD together...a holistic approach that layers very well. An aromatic fougere that is far better than the cost at which you can get it, if you pay what I did.

    By the way, after a whole day's wear (and only a light touch up of a few shots of EDT in the afternoon)...the scent lasted very well.

    Cheers,

    ericrico

I actually like the fact that it has a lighter projection - for some reason, it makes it more classy. Not a powerhouse aromatic fougere, but a truly great composition! I will say, that it is more comparable to Paco Rabanne Pour Homme (later Vintage) along with Vintage Revillon Pour Homme (an absolutely beautiful fragrance with a great pine needle/fir heart and base accord similar to Worth Pour Homme). The leather is wonderful here - but I also like the integration of moss and coumarin. The florals linger here as well...along with the pine from the heart. Impressive longevity. Almost 2 hours in writing this and just two sprays to my arm - it is a very nice skin scent...very nice moss and leather base with aromatics wafting up. Again, not loud - very gentlemanly and I get a sense of class and cleanliness (but at the same time, a no-fuss/spray-and-go fougere that should be applied liberally). A button down shirt, sweater or polo shirt seem to be proper attire as there is an aire of sophistication about this. Like Paco Rabanne Pour Homme - it has distinction, refinement and class.
    I compare Worth Pour Homme with Revillon Pour homme side by side today. My vintage WPH has stronger projection than Revillon Pour homme. Well, both of them have beautiful scent

    Interesting to hear, teerose -

    I have never tried Vintage Worth Pour Homme, but the reviews of it are not all that positive on a lot of accounts. You may have found a good bottle. I have Vintage Revillon Pour Homme in large flacon. I wear it occasionally - it is special to me in many ways. The beauty of the scent is how it integrates so seamlessly. It is not a strong scent (in terms of projection), but exceptional in quality of ingredients and composition. This makes me want to find Vintage Worth. I really, really like the recent Worth bottling (Blue Box) and apply it liberally. Splash After Shave is great too - fantastic for layering.

    Just curious as Vintage Revillon Pour Homme is very rare...is your bottle a spray, splash? What size is it? They simply do not (and will not) make amazing scents like that any more...

    Also, are you a fan of Vintage Paco Rabanne? Just curious...

    Cheers,

    Eric

    Well, you don't have to buy vintage worth pour homme if you have already purchased vintage Revillon Pour Homme. I agree with you, what you described about Revillon Pour homme is what I smell on my right arm right now.

    I only have the vintage mini. Have you ever compared between the splash & spray? coz My friend saw the spray one on local shop. If the smell just like my mini maybe I will buy it

    *just called my friend and what he see was R de Revillon not Revillon Pour Homme

    Well -

    Not entirely true as I am a true lover of Classic Aromatic Fougeres and Vintage Worth is one of the few I don't have. You can never have too much of a good thing...

    Did you read my review on Basenotes of Vintage Revillon Pour Homme? My summation here is just a touch of what I spent time breaking down - here it is: http://www.basenotes.net/ID26121363.html

    That makes sense about your friend, because Revillon R (a great scent unto itself, but totally different - a "Fresh" Fougere - aromatic and very clean, created by the master perfumer, Maurice Roucel). That is one to get regardless, but I was doubtful that Revillon Pour Homme (Vintage) was floating around.

    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, in my honest and humble opinion, is the greatest male fragrance ever created - in Original Vintage formulation!

    Cheers,

    I fully agree, teerose.

    The pine needle and fir in both are essential in the composition. Also, an UPDATE...I recently bought Vintage Worth Pour Homme (both the EdT and excellent After Shave Lotion). I read a lot and was cautious, but it is actually wonderful. The current blue bottle does a good job maintaining the classic notes, but the Vintage Worth Pour Homme is really very good. I heard so much negativity on it, but then a friend on here (thanks, Boge) pointed me to a sale on Ebay for Vintage Worth Pour Homme After Shave. It was rich in both fragrance and emollients. Fantastic - it actually pairs well with both Vintage Worth Pour Homme EdT (with the large "W" designed bottle) and, actually well with Worth Pour Homme Haute Concentraion (the Red & Blue paisley box). Incredible stuff.

    I will say this - stronger projection may go to Worth (and the overall composition is truly excellent), but Vintage Revillon Pour Homme is sublime. There is a magical quality to it - hard to describe, but it is such a wonderful and natural-smelling fragrance. It is, in my humble opinion, fantastic.

    Having both (and Vintage Paco Rabanne Pour Homme) - I am truly blessed.

    Cheers,

    ericrico

    Could you describe the bottle?
    Or upload a photo?
    I have a bottle of Worth PH Aftershave but don't know it's vintage. (It is certainly potent with good longevity)
    Thanks,
    Martin.

    Hi martinijo -

    Yes - it is currently being sold on Ebay. It is a 100ml spray bottle with bright green juice. The stuff, as Boge describes, is wonderful and potent. I actually wear it by itself (as it has the strength of an Eau de Cologne!) or layer a little Worth Pour Homme Haute Concentration which I had before and just recently acquired the wonderful set of Vintage Worth Pour Homme. I read earlier comments on Vintage Worth PH and stayed away. After getting the excellent After Shave, I decided to get the set with the EdT - very glad I did. It is truly great stuff. Very deep, rich and potent. A classic fougere with a nice pine note in the heart, great oakmoss and also some nice leather. Impressive stuff - not to be worn casually.

    Here is a link with a picture of the Vintage After Shave bottle that is currently being sold: http://www.ebay.com/itm/190701556355...84.m1438.l2648

    Enjoy - cheers,

    Eric

    Ah, that is different to the bottle I have. The aftershave is clear. Must be a more recent version that I have. Still good though, and it definately has something in common with Paco Rabanne original formulation. I sometimes layer it with the newer Paco Pour Homme.
