    From your description, the first thing I thought of was Tiffany for Men. It can be bought directly from Tiffany. It is a fresh but powdery masculine scent that is very similar to Pour Monsieur from Chanel, but better. Another in this category that has a slight more herbal base is Monsieur Givenchy - a very fine, lemony, men's cologne chypre with a slight powdery touch. Pure elegance.
    current rotation: • mugler cologne • bergamote 22 • galloway • morning chess • le labo the noir 29 • smn patchouli • suedois • menthe fraiche • extreme blue • m/mink • eau d'orange verte • javanese patchouli

    Noir by Tom Ford or it's BETTER predecessor, Habit Rouge by Guerlain (the Eau de Toilette).

    Good calls! Another not quite as powdery perhaps but more fresh talcum vibe with good projection is Prada Infusion d'Homme .

    Tiffany for Men fits that bill perfectly. Habit Rouge does, too, but I like Tiffany better.
    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

    Midnight in Paris(but has a burnt rubber smell), CKN2U is like cinnamon rolls and baby powder, and D&G the one gentleman is like a talc with bubble gum.

    I would agree with Tiffany for Men. Also Habit Rouge as well.

    Creed Bois du Portugal may also be worth a look, although not as "fresh"

    +1 Touch.

    Check out Bvlgari BLV and BLV Notte too. BLV was one of my most complimented ever, Notte is basically the same but a little less powdery with a light chocolatey note.
    My Ultimate Top 5:

    Fahrenheit (1988)
    24 Platinum (2012)
    Burberry London (2006)
    Eau des Baux (2006)
    Arpege pour Homme (2005)

    Racquets is great stuff. Barbershop for sure. I read that it was discontinued recently though, so if true be sure to snap up what's out there!

    Not the greatest sillage but as far as the rest, Gucci II may fit the bill.

    +1 for Heritage - Guerlain
    +1 for Habit Rouge - Guerlain
