    Default What are some more "barbershop" scents that I can try?

    I love the old school, barbershop vibe and tend to wear that style the most. I only recently discover Rive Gauche and it has quickly become a favorite. I was looking for more frags along those lines. Below are the ones I have that are along those lines:

    RGPH
    Azzaro PH
    Aramis
    Quorum
    Tabac Original EdC

    Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Old Spice, of course. Longevity is pretty short lived IMHO.

    Pinaud Clubman is something else worth trying; it is technically an aftershave but sticks around for a while. If you're my age (40) or older, you'll almost certainly recognize the scent. In fact my local barbershop uses Clubman Talc after the shave.

    Yup I am also 40, and the barber always dusted me with Clubman talc after a haircut. I forgot to mention that I do have both Clubman, and Special reserve which I really like.

    Special Reserve is pretty nice - it's the Pinaud take on leather.

    My favorite Pinauds are the Vanilla (which is actually a pretty nice vanilla, if linear) and Citrus Musk (a great warm-weather fragrance.) None are "barbershop" but they are quite good in their own right.

    Caron Pour un Homme hits all the barbershop notes for me.

    Murdock Black Tea and I think Creed Original Vetiver are nice barbershop scents.

    This. I was going to say pretty much this, but sjg3839 beat me to the punch. Good god, you have great taste

    I might also recommend Prada Infusion D'homme. It's extremely "clean", and that might tickle your fancy.

    Montale Aromatic Lime is very barber shopy IMO.

    As much as they're asked about maybe we need an official barbershop thread. Anyway this guy goes through and rates and describes a bunch of barbershop frags. I agree with him on Brooks Bros "1818". If you like the smell of shaving cream it dries down to that for hours. http://pourmonsieurblog.blogspot.com...p%20Fragrances

    I really want to get myself some 1818 after reading that, it sounds like exactly what I am after.

    +1 on Clubman by Pinaud. I have a vintage Cologne concentrate and aftershave that lasts all day and smells great! The epitome of a barbershop scent if you ask me.

    BB 1818 is a fantastic frag. Believe it or not, Paul Sebastian is a great contender in that category.

    nice suggestions thus far...

    I'll add Proraso after shave. Essentially, the Italian Old Spice.

    Creed Orange Spice has that vintage barbershop feel to it.
