    This is much "greener" than the 1991 release. They are absolutely two totally different fragrances. I do enjoy both.

    Good information here:

    I really enjoyed this fragrance today. I can't wait to wear it during the cooler months.

    Can anyone tell me why alcohol concentration is shown in degrees rather than in percentages?

    Never tried this formulation before, that's something that I'd like to compare with my small mini second formulation bottle. Do you get a barbershop feel with the first formulation?

    No batchcode on the bottle, which leads me to believe it might be a pre-1980 bottling?
    I think it came after "A Gentlemen's Cologne" bottles. I'm thinking 1970s.

    I’m just waking up, so my brain isn’t fully going. #needcoffee. BUT, the basics deal with a French chemist figuring alcohol by volume in water and it being displayed as degrees instead of percentage. The important thing for my brain to remember is that it translates/equals directly the percentage of alcohol in a mixture. 80degrees equals 80% abv, and so on. So yea, the French did it to you.

    Must. Have. Coffee.

    Yes I do. It's definitely a true fougere type fragrance. I got well acquainted with it for a couple of days. The dry down is very nice.

    As I mentioned, the 1981 release is a different fragrance altogether. I'll wear it again today to get better acquainted with it.

    Another way of specifying the amount of alcohol is alcohol proof, which in the United States is twice the alcohol-by-volume (ABV) number. This may lead to confusion over similar products bought in varying regions that have different names on country specific labels. For example, Stroh rum that is 80% ABV is advertised and labeled as Stroh 80 when sold in Europe, but is named Stroh 160 when sold in the United States.

    In the United Kingdom proof is 1.75 times the number (expressed as a percentage). For example, 40% abv is 80 proof in the US and 70 proof in the UK. However, since 1980, alcohol proof in the UK has been replaced by ABV as a measure of alcohol content.

    BURBERRYS For Men (1981)...

    Again today. I've had this for maybe a year or so and I haven't worn it much. I'm really starting to appreciate it as a nice fragrance. It's worth the hype as far as being a classic 80s fragrance but not the crazy prices. I was so lucky to find this set at a great price.

    I knew about the US proof (from watching "Moonshiners" on Discovery), but was unaware of the UK equivalent.

    Today is Vétiver - Annick Goutal

    I picked up a second bottle a few months ago that I believe is much older than my square one (as pictured in directory here). It is the ribbed cylindrical style with a hang tag. Paper sticker on bottom with EMB code and handwritten concration percantage and volume. Dark amber colored liquid versus the yellow in the square bottle. It smells even better too. Highly unique portrayal of vetiver, I can't believe it came out in the mid-80's. I should post some photos and see if anyone could help date it.

    I have been seriously behind in posting VSOTDs. Mostly been wearing ^^^ this summer, vtg. Or Black and Azzaro pour Homme, with a smattering of Kouros Fraîcheur and Adidas/Eau de Marand. A friend recently sent me a decant of Teatro alla Scala (Krizia) which had been on the "to try" list for a long time. It is absolutely gorgeous. Will probably pounce on a 25ml spray at some point.

It reminds me just a little of Paco Rabanne La Nuit, but softer, more friendly. Some Balenciage Ho Hang Club DNA too. Thanks again to Paps for a great discovery.
    Isn't it fantastic? Hell of a honeyed patchouli with seriously smooth blending. Makes me think of a slightly more updated Givenchy Gentleman but still with plenty of old-school character. It has been in and out of my cart on eBay multiple times but I am still living on a decant from either paps or PC.

    Luciano Pavarotti is a bit dandyish for my tastes, but it's impeccably made, with a dazzlingly complex structure. They don't make 'em like that anymore.

    I would concur with it being on the dandy end of things for sure. Dandy isn't a preferred genre that I'd like to have on myself all day, although Pavarotti is surely one I wouldn't complain about if it were my only option in the category. I think my reference dandy is Habit Rouge, which I think is structured beautifully, but I can't stand wearing it.

    Puig Quorum (testing from mini). It has been an absolute joy going through a batch of vintage mini's last week. Last of the batch is Quorum. Being someone that is not really into green fougeres I'm still waiting to sniff that one to win me over. Unfortunately Quorom isn't going to be it.
