    Default recs if I like Eau Sauvage, Acqua di Parma and Geo F Trumper's Bay Rhum

    can anyone give me recs they think I'd like regarding those, if at all possible split your recs into traditional and modern interpretations of the themes

    thanks

    I recommend seeking out a vintage bottle of Floris No. 89. That should be a nice English traditional right up your alley.

    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie

    Good rec. As a side note, my love of AdP (and my huge back up supply of it!) has so far stopped me from acquiring Eau Sauvage, as much as I like it. I do own NP though, hence my seconding of Bonoanimoes recommendation.

    That's interesting. I'm currently deciding between AdP and Eau Sauvage and favouring the latter because I find it less floral of the two. AdP's Opening is admittedly incomparable but I'm not so sure of the development. The less complex structure of the Dior seems to me, at least, to be its strength. It remains fresh and interesting throughout.

    Check out Granville from Dior Collection Privee. You'll need to track down a flagship store but it's worth it, trust me. You could also look into Eau de Guerlain and Uomo from Lorenzo Villoresi. These all 'complement' AdP Colonia & Eau Sauvage as additions to a wardrobe, for me at least.

    thank you guys, great suggestions so far! I'm going to look into all of these as I am quite close to retailers that stock them all

    does anything know of anything more modern that might take this idea and move it forward ? also anything on the Bay Rum front, something clovey ?

    I don't remember Bay Rum much, but Diptyque has plenty of clovey stuff, in particular L'Eau and Eau Lente.

    For traditional eau de cologne, my favorite is Chanel Eau de Cologne. More long lasting, in the direction of Eau Sauvage, is l'Eau d'Hermes.
