    Default Thoughts on Bobby Jones cologne.

    I found a bottle of this for really cheap and decide to pick it up. I've only heard Bigsly talk about it as something along the lines of GIT. Anyone have any thoughts on this one? Also, this is the original 2.5 oz bottle and with what looks like a green leather strap around it. Another version of the bottle is 3.4 oz and has Bobby Jones written on it with a golfer on the front.

    The presentation of the bottle is a good look.

    Wore this as my SOTD. The bottle looks just like the picture and it's really nice with the leather around it. It does bear a resemblance to Creed's Green Valley but not as soapy. Really liking this one.

    I don't have the version in the picture (mine is the 100 ml with the golfer graphic on it). Basically for me it's a wet grassy scent, with violet leaf but not lavender or iris (or in very small amounts). Unlike other "green" scents, it does not go off in a different direction in the base but retains its green quality for a very long time.

    I was wondering about the difference in the bottles, but from what you've described it's just what I'm smelling from my bottle. The overall smell reminds me of a combination of Creed's Green Valley and Green Irish Tweed. I've heard you talk this fragrance up a couple of times and I agree with you 100%. Great stuff!

    I have a bottle like the one pictured in the original post, but it is 125 ml.

    I rarely wear it but I like it.

    Such a shame that the original has been discontinued. One of the best green scents, ever!

    For sure.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Chuck, how are you liking the Bentley Black?
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    It’s nice. My wife likes it. It’s basically Kenneth Cole Signature gussied up a bit. Fresh and a bit melony.
