    This is what I wrote about LM:

    So, the real McCoy indeed and a bulls eye on the serious side of things. This scent does not have a single drop of humor or smile in it.

    The thing now is, am I man enough to pull this off or will it break my balls like a tornado tears down a shanty town?
    My Moonshine sample came yesterday and my initial feelings are favourable.

    Now, this is a gentleman cowboy, all smiles, good manners and happy go lucky trailblazer spirit. Lucky Luke instead of Clint Eastwood, top break Schofield in shoulder holster instead of Nock, shined up boots and fresh shave. Clif Adams singing 'My John Deere Tractor' Kip Moore in 'Something about a truck'.

    Gin, maybe some rum or similar, something darker, 'haps ham, also for some reason reminds me bit of Neroli Portofino. Definitely more approachable than LM.

    Most confess that I ended up ordering them both LM is the king of the Hill but how can i resists Moonshine either, at the end of the day it's made in Austin. Perhaps that actually explains its somewhat double nature, at least i've heard that for some Austin is not really Texas, at least that was told to us at McCombs some years back

    I'm glad you got to try and like them both! I have both also and I think you nailed it with your descriptions. LM is the rough cowboy marlboro man type, while Moonshine is the refined gentleman cowboy. Thanks for coming back to share

    Wearing this (Chaps) right now and agree completely - very bold, yet extremely well blended. This is, in my opinion, the ultimate cowboy scent. I just won a vintage 1 oz. splash on ebay for under $10 and it still smells fresh. Brings back wonderful memories of simpler times...

You need the one in the amber glass bottle with the chrome top with the western design. Most of them come in a splash bottle, it's rare to begin with, and even more rare to find one with a sprayer, these are usually in the smaller 1 oz bottles. Chaps is a very bold strong masculine scent with big time notes -- leather, patchouli, spices, lavender, oak moss, sandalwood are all big notes here, typically base notes,, and I'm sure some of these are base notes here, but not all, making this a big powerful powerhouse, Western appeal, check it out if you find it. Again, be sure you like strong masculines, stuff like Azzaro pH is weak in comparison to Chaps.

    What about something from Juniper Ridge. I "reckon" that a cowpoke would enjoy Mojave etc.
    I've just been on Trip Advisor. There was no information on a cut knee.

    Give Patchouli 24 by Le Labo a try if you want an eye opening "bbq" type cologne. It's not for everyone, but I can't get enough of it. It's got birch tar, I think- which gives it a charred-woody-smokey smell. It's bold and awesome.

    I see others have recommended leather colognes, which is good too. But if you want the smoke and wood, give Patchouli 24 a try.
