    Default Something more mature than Royal Copenhagen and Canoe

    I loved those scents as a teenager and maybe part of this is that the reptile part of my brain now associates those scents with teens but now in my 40's I want something a little more mature. Something to wear out at a nice dinner or a show or taking the illustrious girlfriend to a music club. Any ideas on brands I should try?

    Welcome to you Saint Cad!

    Perhaps Bleu De Chanel or Burberry London

    Try those OP (and welcome to you) I concur that they are both very nice and I actually can't imagine anyone being ever offended by either of them

    Welcome!

    Funny, most kids now, grown up on sharp aquatics, would find Canoe and Royal Copenhagen peculiarly mature.

    Canoe was a fougere. A great fougere is Caron Troisieme homme. In general, I think that the trio of Caron masculines is as classic as it gets: Caron pour un homme (lavender vanilla), Troisieme homme (fougere), Yatagan (woody vegetal). Sadly, not that easy to find in the States, though quite common in Europe. Or the classic Guerlains: Jicky and Mouchoir de monsieur (vanilla fougeres), Derby (citrus leather).

    I was looking over some of the recommendations. I think I'll try some Burberry London but it seems more woodsy (is that a scent term?) than the classic RC (i.e. pre-reformulation, the new stuff is so disappointing) or Canoe. I see references in the reviews as a powdery scent. Is there something other than the apparently-hard-to-get troisieme homme that would be a more sophisticated scent reminiscent of those two?

    Azzaro pour homme, Paco Rabanne pour homme, and YSL Rive Gauche for man are probably the easiest to find traditional fougeres. The first is more aromatic (anise), the second is a little sharper, and the third one cleaner and more soapy.
