Royal Vintage by M Micallef
I have several ideas about this one but I would like to hear the valued opinions from my fellow BN's.

Pure Malt... to mask all the booze they drink in that little office
60's New York, a clean-shaven exec who grew up on a farm and keeps a stack of pressed white shirts in his desk?
It has to be something simple and respectable. I agree with Old Spice. By the way, he is gorgeous.
Then? Old Spice.
Today? Eau Sauvage.
"Follow your nose. It always knows." -- Toucan Sam
vintage Guerlain Habit Rouge (released 1965)
Probably Caron Pour Homme
Probably a mixture of tobacco, martinis, and starch.
"OOOOOOH WHAT A GOAL! IT'S DANNY ROSE, ON HIS PREMIER LEAGUE DEBUT, WITH A MEMORABLE STRIKE!"

Maybe also something along the lines of Paco Rabanne pour Homme or Versace l'Homme.
I believe they have brought up Eau Sauvage on the show at one point or another, though it wasn't introduced until what would be the latter part of the series.
Joan wears Shalimar.
I think that today Don Draper might wear Egoiste, Tobacco Vanille or Bois du Portugal.
Please check out my selling list:
YSL Opium homme EDP, Musc Ravageur, Rive Gauche pour homme, French Lover, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros etc.
Chanel Pour Monsieur.
Frank No. 2 Los Angeles
Eau Sauvage, Chanel For Men. An old Guerlain or two. Dunhill names might be a little too recent.
I'd imagine Old Spice as well.
If he was to go for a designer frag, probably something from Chanel... maybe Cuir de Russie?
Current Top 10:
1. Leather Oud- Dior
2. Black Aoud- Montale
3. M7 Oud Absolu- YSL (I really REALLY like oud)
4. Green Irish Tweed- Creed
5. Cuir de Russie- Chanel
6. Straight to Heaven- By Kilian
7. Aventus- Creed
8. Pure Havane- Theirry Mugler
9. Shalimar EdP- Guerlain
10.Body Kouros- YSL
Tiffany for Men

Something not worn by just every man, with some snob appeal — something like Fougère Royale.
Since it was discontinued in the 50's, maybe he managed to go through a bottle of two.

“When you step back from stressing the parts,
when the mind becomes still, the rose comes to you,
unfolds in you in all her glory.
The perfume invades you completely.
The rose is you. You are one.”
brut, canoe, english leather, english leather lime...or just some aftershave like aqua velva.
I imagine he would smell of cigarettes and alcohol mainly, but there would be a little something lurking under those scents. A manly, spicy scent. Not sure quite what though...
If they had been around in the 1960's I would say Green Irish Tweed or Bois Du Portugal.
Brooks Brothers 1818. the smell of "old money".
Creed Original Vetiver
I wonder what JASON from TRUE BLOOD would wear..... He is also gorgeous.
Don Draper would have NEVER worn anything even remotely related to the current trends in frangrance. He is a man, historically, before REAL MEN (VETS) bought such things.
