    Default Gentlemans Fragrance - Long Lasting snd Refined

    I'm looking for very refined and long lasting gentleman's fragrance. I really don't know exactly what I want in notes but I do know that it must have elegance, longevity and sillage in its genes.

    Hugh Parsons Traditional Blue, available now only from "First in Fragrances" in Germany is my first suggestion. This is a truly marvelous scent that has great longevity. At one time you could get it at any Nordstroms, as their house scent, but that is no longer the case.

    Mark Birley Charles Street, a subtle, rich and manly fragrance. Charles Street has very good longevity, but doesn't project a great deal, so the longevity is like everything else about this: subtle. Available almost nowhere, expect in NY at Aedes and LA at luckyscent.com/fragrance bar.

    Both are EdeP-s which make them long lasting.

    This may come as a surprise entry for many but seriously, try Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene. 1-2 spray(s) to the chest and you'll spend the day smelling like no other guys out there...

    This is a great suggestion. There are many many beauties out there that will meet your criteria, enough to make you a collector as a matter of fact, but DiamondFlame's suggestion is fantastic.

    Guerlain Mouchoir de Monsieur - transalates as "gentlemans handkerchief" - very soft but has a bit of animalism to it as well.
    Parfums MDCI Invasion Barbare - very soft, warm and long lansting - very old world gentleman in feel.

    +1 Guerlain Habit Rouge edp - warm vanilla, lavender ending in subtle oud leather base.
    +1 Mark Birley Charles Street - soft warm dusty leather and coffee.
    +1 YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme - warm incense spice that has a very post WWII vibe.

    I´m not quite sure about Givenchy Gentleman - this one can easily became a patchouli hell for non-experienced user...anyway, if applied gently it could also pass

    Jabomano: The question as asked has a lottttttt of answers. It's fine to ask it; there is no better place. Best to now look up these frags in the directory and look through the comments to see which sound test worthy. Like you, I'm not very "notes" based.

    If you don't want to focus on the scent specifics, you will see many comments in the directory that give an idea of the "personality" of the fragrances mentioned. (e.g old fashioned, contemporary, very elegant, dressy, etc).
