    Default Does any of you still wear Herrera for men?

    Hello boys!

    This is my first post here. Ive been reading some of the threads and finally decided to register.

    Iīm quite new to the world of fragrances and right now Iīm having some trouble finding a fragrance that is heavy on the tobacco smell. I ordered Herrera for men online yesterday and I want to know if itīs still a good call for these times.

    I also have been reading comments about Burberry London, Borgart ph and John Varvatosī Vintage. What are your opinions about this? Specially about Herrera for men? BTW, my age is 28.

    Herrera for men is a timeless non-sweet tobacco scent. I was actually going to buy it this week since a local store can give me a good price on it, but decided to tone down purchases until next month.

    You made a great buy.

    Actually , Herrera for Men is a very good scent and I enjoy it very much ,even I didn't expect that when I received it.

    Herrera may seem a bit too "old school" for you but if you like it, then that's all that matters. Alternatively, I think Dolce & Gabbana does a good job of capturing the same style in a more timeless way. They're both really good, but one has withstood the test of time better. I would grab the D&G Pour Homme online rather than at a retailer (the newest version in stores is very weak by comparison to older formulas).
    Summer Rotation:

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garįons
    Love & Luck by Ed Hardy
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Own Herrera for Men, and enjoy it a lot. I owned it in the 90's when it first hit the market and the juice that's available retail now seems very close to the original. A teeny bit old-school, but wears very well in the Spring and Fall particularly.

    Tried it on a few occasions. Just wasn't my style

    Have never worn it, but considered getting it while being popular and still widely available.

    I picked up a little Herrera in a lot that I bought -- one of those unexpected keepers!

    This was my SOTD yesterday, rather my scent of the first part of the day, the current formulation gives me about 8 hours longevity. Not as good as the older stuff, not nearly as strong, but still smells about the same. I have a small 1 oz bottle; they redid the 1 oz bottles, they are flat now and look like the style of Herrera Aqua.

    Scent itself, pretty good spicy/tobacco, great sandalwood dry down. Similar to Havana by Aramis, but not as good imo. Still a solid fragrance; but once I use this one up, I won't be buying it again.
    My 3 Signature Scents:

    Rive Gauche Light (2004)
    Fahrenheit (1988)
    Paul Smith Man (2009)

    I find Herrera for Men to be a discordant scent - there was something wrong about it, which made me want to go back and keep sniffing it. Anyhow, I noticed the other day that I've nearly used up half a bottle, so I must like it better than I thought.
    Regards,

    I like it, I haven't worn it much at all, probably largely due to association with my Dad - it may seem like more 'his', know what I mean? .

    Like has been said, HfM is a timeless and undoubtedly manly frag. I prefer its tobacco expression to that of D&G pH. I am not sure there has been as noticable a reformulation (if at all) of the Herrera as the D&G. Still a very good call, IMO.

    I have always liked this. Compared to the 212 range, it's a masterpiece
