    Default Fred Hayman Touch - Anyone tried this...?

    Hi folks - I was just wondering if anyone has any experience of this fragrance? It's by Fred Hayman - founder of the Giorgio Beverly Hills boutique - and there is very little about it within Basenotes. The few reviews on this and other sites suggest it is a Barbershop-style fragrance reminiscent of Brut for Men but longer lasting.

    Anything on this would be much appreciated...!

    The reviews are close to the mark. Touch, though an oriental, has that fougere feel and a sweetness that reminds one of Brut. For more contemporary comparisons, i would say it smells a bit like Cerruti 1881 Black or Joop Jump, but with a certain old-schoolish solidity, IYKWIM.

    Touch is an unsung classic, IMO.

    Hi perfaddict! Thanks for helping me out - I can always rely on you to be there when I need a reliable opinion!! I've seen a cheap bottle on Ebay and was intrigued by the cool bottle (well...I like it!) and the connection with Giorgio (I love Beverly Hills for Men).

    I've always thought YSL Rive Gauche (which I like a lot) smells Brut-ish - is there any similarity between Rive Gauche and Touch?

    It's on Ebay for around 10.00 for a new, 30ml bottle - is it worth a shot?

    While you go about grabbing the bottle, i would say the dominant patchouli in RG moves Touch it away from it and towards Brut.

    To me. I think it smells a lot like Heritage by Guerlain, but w/ more caffeine.

    It's an odd fragrance, it smells almost identical to Neutrogena's Rain Bath shower gel. If you've never smelled RB before, go to your local CVS and screw the cap off and give it a whiff. If you like what you smell than I believe you'll enjoy Touch.
