    Exclamation Looking For The Ultimate "Retro" Barber Shop Vibe Fragrance ?

    Look no further.

    Chanel no.5 Premiere

    I'm in ecstasy. This is an incredible perfume. It winds and twists, but always within a retro barber shop theme.

    Extremely wearable for a guy !

    Love your enthusiasm David!

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Oddly had the very same sensation with at least another fragrance by Chanel, officially marketed as feminine, but personally speaking quite unisex during its development:
    No. 19 EDP.

    Such an amazing sequence of some powder, some citrus and lots of moss, chypre, dry woody notes while drying down: almost certainly not out of place in an upscale barbershop, but also perfume store, dressing room, even art gallery of yesteryear- in a surprisingly non-dated, timelessly trendy way.
    Currently wearing: Floïd by Floïd

    Not sure David, not many guys in my part of the woods would wear Eau Premiere, would rather smell it on my wife.

    Might spritz some on tonight for kicks

    Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend at the time last year.
    Agree that it's an excellent fragrance, but prefer smelling it on women.

    I agree it's good. But it doesn't register as barbershop to me. To me, the ideal barbershop is an old style fougere, like the original Fougere Royale.
