    It has to be something simple and respectable. I agree with Old Spice. By the way, he is gorgeous.

    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, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    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

    Something not worn by just every man, with some snob appeal — something like FougŤre Royale.

    Since it was discontinued in the 50's, maybe he managed to go through a bottle of two.

    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.

    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.
