    Default Re: Old Spice. Brut. Polo...what's the next must-try classic?

    By the time I was a child, Old Spice and Brut were 'everyman', drug store splash ons. Something Polo has never been.

    So the contemporaries of Old Spice and Brut would be Rapport, Blue Stratos, Mandate, Denim, and how could anyone forget Hai Karate?! Pierre Cardin PM just about fits in this group too.

    How do I remember these? Because my Dad tried the lot of them (or got them in Christmas gift sets). I'm sure it was this lot that Anchorman was taking the piss out of.

    Once he was making better money, my Dad moved up to Department store colognes. Aramis and Paco Rabanne, then Polo when it came out, then Antaeus and Kouros. Quorum and Drakkar Noir would also appeal to a guy like this.

    Classics are the scents from the past that you can still find in the shops:
    Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir
    CK Obsession
    Chanel Egoiste
    Davidoff Zino
    Davidoff Cool Water
    Armani Aqua di Giò
    JPG Le Male
    CK One
    Versace Dreamer
    Dior Fahrenheit
    Bulgari Aqua
    and many others...
    Paco Rabanne One Million I think it will become a classic.

    70s = Paco Rabanne
    80s = Kouros
    90s = Le Male
    00s = 1 Million

    Don't you get it?? He mention 3 strong perfumes and asks what is next, and you propose those bland, insipid, watered down "aquatics" (Aquatic means watery after all, doesn't it)

    So Seanjuan, those Drakkar Noir, One man show , Quorum, Paco Rabanne and Azzaro pH suggestions you got are perfect for your quest, and I may add Fendi Uomo, Ted Lapidus pH and Sung pH.

    Oh so many:
    Lagerfeld Classic
    Drakkar Noir
    Halston Z-14
    Quorum
    Aramis
    Obsession

    All must smells for sure, just frags that once they are in your head you can immediately recognize it from there on after.

    Gotta echo Tabac.
    Be sure to try out both the edc and edt as they are quite different.
