    It's only 3 people who said they'd just got it.
    I think people are grabbing it now though, as they have stopped making the tin can version.
    I don't think the stuff in the new bottle i as bad as is made out personally.

    Alas it is a lot more expensive, and so the older stuff is being stockpiled by BN members.
    The Yanks are finding bottles of it for around $20-$30 a pop, but even at the relatively high (ha!) price of $42 from FragranceX, it's still a bargain for the rest of us.

    i thing i m the kind of man that care about what others smell on you.
    Do YOU like it? Don't assume that the co-worker was talking about you, unless you sprayed 10 times - that would be too much. If you are only wearing it for other people, then it may not be what you need. You'd have to ask the people around you what you should wear. I wear fragrances for myself, so I really like it and don't find it offensive at all. Each person has their own reasons for wearing a fragrance.

    I see, thanks for the info! Seemed like a weird coincidence.

    I recently swapped mine for a small decant of Creed Royal Oud. Before I swapped it, I bought a bottle of Brut. To me, Brut gives me a similar vibe, but I actually found Brut to be a little bit more pleasant, so I said I could live without Rive Gauche. But truthfully, tho I wanted to love RG, I just didn't. I'm still quite surprised by all the love it gets. I'd like to smell it on someone other than myself. Sometimes you'll grow to appreciate a fragrance because you smell it on someone else and it hits you differently than when you wear it.

    well , I have to say, I can only scent the power sillage on rgph on the start , first 10 min. when it get powndery ( 1 hr later) and the scent is amazingly good the sillage stay close on skin on me.
    Yesterday I went to a perfum store and i sprayed my rive gauche on my wrist ( because the atendant couldnt scent the perfum on me) and asked her opinion. She said that it was good light and soft, the top notes were similar to azzaro ( as we know)but very light and better as it goes to a clean scent. that being said brought me a doubt about the sillage of rive gauche and if in hot days, as here in brazil, rgph goes away very fast.

    Nope. Not just you. It cracks me up when people call this fresh and things like that. I kniw barbershop scents can be fresh but I look at Clubman as more barbershop. I tried to like it it but all I get is a dated power type scent that is heady and just too much. I guess I'm missing out but I never got this one.

    I think it is a great scent. It lasts forever on me. But, it doesn't really fit my style, and it does feel a little old. I ended up selling my bottle. I'll pick up another in the future at some point.

    I wore RGPH in the office yesterday -- 1/2 (half) sprays on each side of my neck, and it was perfect. The first hour with the anise opening could be borderline mature. But, after that I kept getting whiffs and kept wondering, as I walked around the workplace, who smelled good. Then, I realized it was me.

    Just tried Rive Guache for the first time. started off pretty strong floral but once into the mid notes it was a delight.

    After wearing Giorgio to the office yesterday (mistake), I can definitely see RG at work. Nice resonant almost minty note in there - beautiful.

    I also enjoy rive gauche. If your into that type of scent, make sure to try sartorial by penhaligans. A bit more refined and stays with you for a long time. Beautiful fragrance.

    Thanks for the tip Jarrod. I realized that the thread was about RG Pour Homme. I looked up my perfumed court order and it's the original RG (not Pour Homme). Love it, but now must try the PH (and of course now Sartorial) :-)

    A masterpiece. Nothing short of it.

    There is a common misconception that young guys should wear "young fragrances" and that only older guys should wear old school fragrances.
    I disagree with this philosophy.
    IMHO, it is all about balance.
    If you look adolescent, wearing an insipid, modern calone-code-clone (CCC) may seem "age appropriate", but is it really doing you any favours?
    Alternatively, if you look adolescent but wear a masculine, old school inspired fragrance like RG, you may present an image to the world that your balls have actually dropped.
    If I were 18 again, I would always rock the uber masculine classics and leave the CCCs for my mates (who will all smell the same: ie. boring).

    I know, I know... Basenoters will tell you to wear what you like... but the old school has SO MUCH variety, you will definitely find uber masculines that you will love to wear and which will get you noticed in a good way.
