    Of the three, I voted for Chanel Pour Monsieur, but my favorite 1950s-60s classic cologne is Eau d'Hermès.

    +1 Chanel Pour Monsieur, but I'd also add Guerlain Vetiver (vintage).

    Voted for Chanel although I do like the other two.

    Chanel pour monsieur
    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Armani Eau pour Homme (Vintage), Eau de Guerlain or Eau de Rochas Homme are all preferable to the 3 in the vote. Even O de Lancôme and Eau de Rochas (without the Homme) should be considered.

    All of these are soon to be gutted by new EU regulation so hurry...

    All classics, I can't vote for just one of these. I'm wearing original Monsieur De Givenchy aftershave which is more subtle than the others but magnificent. There are plenty of times when I would rather wear something stronger and would go for the others (probably Chanel Pour Monsieur as a day to day scent as Eau Sauvage can be a little bit loud in it's old fashioned sort of way.)

    Love the Chanel, like the Dior, have fond memories of the Givenchy, but Guerlain Vetiver is the classic of choice for me.

    I enjoy either of the three, but if I had a choice, it would be difficult to decide between Eau Sauvage and Chanel pour Monsieur.

    ...the genre is I guess: a classic citrus scent (Monsieur de Givenchy?)! VCAA has nothing to do with that, so you might come with another candidate...?

    OK, brotato. Guess I got nothin' then...
    Fahrenheit is a classic citrus scent? It must have really changed then, because a sample I had a few months ago was all about oil and grease scent (and I've been around enough oil and grease to know).

    Monsieur Givenchy is just a little more refined than Pour Monsieur so it gets the nod from me. Cheers! Happy New Year!

    Thanks for replying. By same genre as Chanel Pour Monsieur, Monsieur de Givenchy and Eau Sauvage I was meaning a classic mens edt based around citrus accords.
