    I would suggest that the most classic is a toss up between Old Spice and Pinaud Clubmen, and English Leather. I have used them all at one time or another, mainly from my dad's fragrance collection. Would not care for any today but I do regard them as men's classics.

    Clubman by Pinaud
    Zizanie by Fragonard
    and...
    Monsieur de Givenchy (Vintage)

    A point to note - I still wear and very much enjoy all three (although Clubman and Zizanie mostly at home). Monsieur de Givenchy, to my nose, is the most "classic" smelling of the wonderful realm of Aromatic Citrus scents...yet, one of my dear favorites.

    Great lists and scents noted by so many. And, by the way, "classic" does not mean "dated" to me at all.

    Cheers.

    The classics:

    Azzaro, Canoé, Old Spice, Pinaud's Clubman, Brut, Chanel pour Monsieur, Eau Sauvage, Monsieur de Givenchy, Monsieur Worth, Pour Un Homme, Guerlain Vetiver, Vetiver de Givenchy, Zizanie, Royal Copenhagen Musk, Pierre Cardin / Creed's Bois de Portugal...

    As to Tiffany / Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree, Habit Rouge, Equipage... I find them dated albeit enjoyable.

    Rive Gauche and Bois du Portugal are classic smelling. Just enough old school and new.

    Chypres with a nice leather note smell the most classic and classy to me.

    E.g. Bel Ami, Derby, Aramis, Polo
    My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2

    When I think "classic," I think of Tiffany for Men.

    It just smells like a fantastic cologne I would have encountered in the 1960s-70s, even though it's not of that vintage.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver
