    Default Drakkar Noir (Vintage)

    I've fallen head over heels for this one! My bottle is the aerosol spray version. Two questions: How does this compare to the original (green) Drakkar? And what other eighties (high quality) frags smell similar to it besides Caesars?

    I also have the Aerosol vintage spray version (25ml bottle that is) which smells indeed way deeper, heavier and mossier than current formulation.
    Besides Caesar's you can try Duc de Vervins or Lomani pour homme as alternatives to 'Drakkar Noir' like fragrances.
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Van Cleef & Arpels: Pour Homme
    - Armani: Acqua di Gio Profumo
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Ferrari: Essence Oud Edp
    - Chanel: Platinum Egoiste
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Fahrenheit (Aqua)
    - Mancera: Cedrat Boise
    - Knize Ten

    Sorry, wrote in length on the wrong cologne.

    Apart from Duc de Vervins, English Blazer by Yardley is another alternative (without being a cheap or too identical copy) of Drakkar Noir, also unexpectedly good quality for its affordable price.

    my 25ml bottle sports the writing "GuyLaroche 1989" , I wonder if it's the first reformulation after 1982.

    I agree, English Blazer is the closest scent to Drakkar Noir I've come across, though they are distinguishable.

    Got me a 1990 bottle in the mail today (UKHH). Oh, baby, smells sooooo gooooood! $24 well spent on an estate sale.

    I get no leather in the original Drakkar. I do get it in the Original Drakkar Noir.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
