    Default Old boy needs a little guidance please

    Dear Group, believe it or not my only experiance of male colognes and fragrances was when Henry Cooper exhorted me to "Splash it all over" long time ago.

    Anyways, time has moved on and i fancy some nice colognes, classic fragrances you might say.
    With your inestimable wisdom dear group, what small list of classic fragrances would you suggest for this old boy.

    Thanks

    Hey man, welcome to Basenotes. The selection is daunting and my recommendations are just the tip of the 'berg.

    True "Classics"

    YSL Pour Homme (lemon drop fading into an herbal bed of pleasantness)


    Aqua di Parma Colonia (Italian citrus and rose)


    Newer things

    YSL Rive Gauche (this is an olfactory trip to a straight razor barber shop)


    Le Labo Rose 31 (a dry dark rose and cedar concoction that is amazing)


    Creed - Bois du Portugal (this is a newer take on the spicy colognes and aftershaves of yore)


    Gendarme (ultra clean, fine soapy fragrance)

    some solid recommendations above!
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
