    EAU D'HERMES

    This is the Coppertop and a 2001 product, so not quite Vintage, however many would say that it is somewhat timeless.

    For me vintage is creation date of the composition, not bottling of the specimen itself, or else half the people wearing vintage wouldn't be, and we don't need another layer of vetting/validation to add more social class strata to the hobby, since all that just divides us rather than letting us come together and share our passions.

    That being said, I am wearing a sample of Santos de Cartier from unknown production, totally by accident. I had intended on wearing/reviewing Pasha de Cartier but I grabbed this tube by accident. As a second wear, I like it more than in my intial one, but am still on the fence about an FB.

    I have a lot of these petitgrain top/oriental fougère base scents already (Versace L'Homme, Chanel Pour Monsieur Eau de Toilette Concentrée, etc)
    If I was going to add another one like this, it would be Guerlain Héritage, but I'll need to sniff Santos Concentrée before I make a total yay or nay call.

    Love this from beginning to end. This is how fragrance should behave. The development is nice although the top notes may be a little diminished in this bottle.

    Monsieur de Givenchy, with some Le Galion Eau Noble on one wrist for comparison. I thought they were very similar, but the Le Galion feels considerably sharper , greener, and more citric, and the spices and woody aspects of the Givenchy are shining through. The Givenchy is also more muted in comparison.

    The Le Galion now reminds me of YSL Pour Homme, so I'll have to do another comparison of those two.

    Superlative and completely genderless despite the original marketing. Citrus / lavender opening, floral heart and a balanced sandalwood / cedar / patchouli base. Definitely shares a few parallels with Patou Pour Homme Prive (especially the lavender accord). Certainly not a replacement for PPHP but slightly easier to come by and well worth the effort. Kerleo at his very finest

    Calvin Klein - Calvin
    This one is soooooo unlike anything else from Calvin Klein... I pulled the trigger on this one recently after seeing some reviews re-surface, and it was totally worth the blind-buy. Definitely vintage vibe, but so nice it can be forgiven - being from 1981 and all. ;-)

    It's definitely conventional for 1981, but I don't feel it had the cojones of peers like Kouros, Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui, Antaeus, and others from the era, so it still kinda had that "friendly" vibe everything Obsession onwards has, just a little more buried in staunch 80's base notes. Not saying you're wrong, but it's definitely more a collector's hype monster than something I think everyone who had it would reach for often if supply wasn't an issue. I blind bought a 30ml at the crazy-lucky price of $10, but the mucho $$$ I've seen this go for from some sellers is even less-deserved than other "unicorns" from the decade, although it is rather well-made compared to anything post-2000 from the house.


    My vintage doohickey is Pasha de Cartier (1992) from a sample provided by MyTwoScents. Definitely in the Jazz/Égoïste/Jazz Prestige/Platinum Égoïste wheelhouse, but the best of them all outsode maybe Égoïste in my opinion. Instant love at first sniff, and will buy post-haste!!!

    Oh, it definitely doesn't stand a chance against the big ones you mentioned. It is a total throwback to the 80's though, that's all I'm saying. ;-) The prices for it are stupid, I have to say - it's a bit nostalgic kick back, but for the money I'd rather recommend someone vintage Antaeus instead. I only got it because I was curious after reading some reviews, and I already have multiple bottles of the peers you mentioned, including unicorns such as Antaeus Sport Cologne (total misnomer - there's nothing sporty about it).

    Funny you mentioned Pasha. I gave away my bottle a few years ago to a friend who liked it on me. Haven't thought about it for a long time, but recently I started missing it. I must find another bottle, preferably early 1990's release, soon! Personally, I still think Égoïste Cologne Concentree is the winner in this small group, or at least that's what my fragrance storage vault thinks - 14 bottles of it... and if I find another one in good shape, I won't hesitate to buy even more.

    Yes, this is indeed a splash.
    I had an idea that early vintage splash was horizontal stripe and spray was vertical, but I could be wrong.

    So far I liked Patou pour homme prive better than the Ma Liberte from what I can remember of it when I owned it years ago.
