    Default Aftershave/Dated vibe

    So I'm looking for a new, everyday sort of versatile fragrance.

    I'm looking for something with an aftershave-y but dated vibe (yeah, I'm not much into fruity fragrances), but yet undeniably French, with a citrusy/civety French vibe. So here are my choices so far:

    Lacoste Original
    YSL pour homme

    Anything else that you could suggest?

    Try to get a hold of the tin can version of Rive Gauche by YSL.

    YSL pH is one of my favorites. I'd suggest checking out the following:
    Lancome Trophee
    Homme d'Gres
    Eau Savauge
    Eau d'Hermes
    Equipage
    Monsieur de Givenchy
    Montana Parfum d'Homme
    YSL pH haute concentree
    Annick Goutal Eau de Sud

    Dated - Pierre Cardin Pour Monsieur Cologne

    Civet is hard to find in modern masculine perfumery (even Kouros has been cleaned up a bit). I'd recommend Caron Troisieme home. It has a definite barbershoppy vibe in the drydown, not with civet but with an interesting, semi-dirtyish musk.

    Tsar by Van Cleef & Arpels

    (matches your criteria except for Civet, which it doesn't have, at least to my nose)

    +1 on Pierre Cardin and adding

    Tabak Original. Such a cheapie and was my favorite purchase of last year. A bit nasty out of the bottle, but the dry down is amazing.

    My thoughts exactly. I personally didn't like it, but if you are going for a 1970's motif, it would be perfect
    WANTED (full or partial bottles)
    Divine eau Divine (refillable)

    This is the one and only time I'll ever recommend it. Drakkar Noir

    Monsieur De givenchy or Chanel Pour Monsieur. I don't think Rive gauche is citrusy or civety, but you might like it.
    You could also try original Givenchy Gentleman (again no real citrus though.)

    Eau de Hermes - older versions particularly have lots of civet in a citrus cologne.

    Funnily enough I was thinking along similar vibes and intend to pick up Paco Rabane XS as I think it would fit the bill perfectly.

    I forgot about XS. Could be a good one, certainly at the price. I think YSL Pour Homme has more class, but is less versatile and more expensive.
    Just don't buy the black version.
