    Default Anything Close to Original (1981) Burberry for Men?

    Hi All,

    I'm on something of a quest, to find a currently available fragrance that's very close in scent to the Original Burberry for Men that was introduced way back in 1981 and long discontinued (link in the fragrance directory: http://www.basenotes.net/ID26120273.html )

    I know its an old one that many may not remember, but if anyone can offer a good suggestion for a current day replacement that's close, many thanks in advance!

    Best,

    Joel

    At the link you provided one of the reviewers said it might be like Derby. Have you tried Derby?

    Hi,

    Yes, I did, but confess the similarity did not ring strongly to my nose.

    Best,

    If you really want to figure this out, first you need to isolate the notes or accords that you found so compelling. Also, some people are more interested in the top notes, others the first few hours, and still others the base. The more information you can provide the better responses you'll likely get. Can you explain what differences you found between Derby and Burberry?

    Perhaps Monsieur by Phillipe Venet

    To me, Derby was much "heavier" and more formal, Burberry had a young swagger to it but Derby felt more like an elderly gentleman's fragrance. Apologies, my nose is not tuned properly to the individual notes / accords to do better than that comparison (from memory at least)

    Best,
