    What a nice fragrance this is. I've enjoyed wearing it all day. The sandalwood is very nice [emoji106].

    I have worn it about 6-7 times. Its about a 5-7 ml decant. It actually only takes a few sprays as it lasts on me pretty well. It is ok in my opinion. Quite a bit of Ceder and musk. I like it, and find it quite wearable, but don't find it bottle worthy for me.

    Here's the bottle that the Shocking came from. Even looks like 1958, doesn't it? And can you believe all that tsunami of smell is coming from an EDC of that age??

    I really like the shape of that bottle!

    It's the kind of shape that feels good to a 60 year old Masculine hand.

    Thanks again Cook.bot for this wonderful sample.

    Currently rocking the Moustache by Rochas today at work (1949)
    It's such an incredibly bygone design for a male fragrance with its heavy use of citrus, dry herbals, and animalics that folks now don't even see it as old-school (unlike Z-14 which is still remembered enough to get accusations of "old man cologne"). Basically it's outlived most folks who wore it when it was contemporary, and since this chypre style is literally extinct in mainstream fragrance, people assume I'm wearing some niche organic stuff or try to peg it as Lush, especially up here in Seattle. The looks of horror when I pull out the gilded Art Deco bottle are just soooo gooood, then I tell them "no, it's actually from 1949. This kind of thing was forward-looking back then. The handmade soap shops lied to you".
    It's great on a rainy day. Just pierces the gloom all day.

    I love Eau Sauvage too, and that one surprisingly still makes modern-minded people turn their heads. Got a friend who's previous favorite was the newest Curve flanker hooked on that one, so there is still hope.

    L.T. Piver Cuir de Russie

    I haven't heard much about this fragrance here. This is a great honey, leather fragrance without the honey being unbearably sweet and over powering. I get the citrus at the top and then it warms up nicely with the spices.

    I'm calling it vintage because I know this is one of the earlier bottle with the dancers on it.

    Anyone else own and like this one?

    One thing I would say is that Gatsby is a better version of Zino. No point in getting both imo.

    Vintage Givenchy L'Interdit EDP and EDT. L'Interdit is a very soft aldehydic floral...gets compared to No. 5 a lot, but it's much warmer, with fruit notes on top. Wears like a skin scent.

    The point mentionned by epapsiou is correct : Gatsby is similar to Zino so, if you own already Zino, Gatsby may not be a priority.
    Regarding your list, my recommendation would be, in this order :
    - Vintage Héritage EdP (absolutely fantastic , one of those that created for me the "WOW" effect !)
    - Boss Sport
    - Vintage Or Black
    - Davidoff
    I own vintage Eau Sauvage and vintage Monsieur de Givenchy, they are great (but current formulations are OK) but their longevity is very poor (at least on my skin).
    I don't know Romeo Gigli (I own Sud Est from RG and it's a nice scent), Coriolan and Eau des Iles so I can't comment on them.
