    Coty La Rose Jacqueminot today. The best roses are vintage or vintage in style for my tastes; they have a richness that modern designer roses just can't achieve. Mmmm, roses!

    This is the best drugstore fragrance I've ever found. Gambler starts off with some mixed greens, a very light citrus, and sitting in the forefront is a very herbal and warm combination of mugwort and cinnamon. The florals of the heart are subdued and supportive of the top and the resinous base adds a rich, if light, sweetness to the mix that colors the whole experience with that old-time musty sort of smell mass marketers now avoid utterly in favor of synthesized freshness. When the starring roles of artemisia and sweet cinnamon finally bow out the base is a simply pleasant sweet leather.
    Gambler smells a bit like a combination of Xeryus and Halston Z-14, but I find it more well-mannered and in the end better than both. I count myself extremely lucky I happened upon a bottle of this.

    I would love to see Jovan Gambler back on the market, all you have to do is to repackage/make a new label, the cologne was fantastic, it always got me in the mood. I would consider it a classic cologne. Maybe it didn't sell well because you could buy it in pharmacies and k-mart, but the price was definately right. If you sold the product in Bloomingdale's it would be a big hit.

    I got that one also in vintage formulation (Krizia Uomo)! To be recognized at the alcohol percentage written on the back (below) of the bottle. Current version does not have that.
    Very strong fresh pine scent covered in oakmoss, berries and woods!
    Similar to the sharper One Man Show but this is more refined. Imo also similar to the brilliant Irisch Moos edt which is my fav of these kind of green fresh piney scents.

    Sotd: a nineties version of Roma: definitely stronger and deeper and more orange colored than current stuff!

    Some of us at Manhattan meetup fell in love with my bottle but we have no idea whether this is vintage version or current.

    I also have no box neither a current version with box to compare it to box or bottle wise but I do know this one is bought in the end 90's/early 00's for sure and did some comparisons with current stuff that is sold everywhere here for peanuts (€20-25/125ml) and the current stuff is almost a summer version of the older while having the same smell but lacking depth and longevity.
    The newer ones are produced by Procter&Gamble while the vintage is by Eurocos London/Frankfurt under Giorgio Beverly Hills inc. Made in UK.

    Edit: Just checked the code on my bottle and its a 2000 bottle.

    Yes Quorum has more masculine balls because of (eg.) the dose of old school tobacco, I agree.
    Good choice Vermeil! Glad I got a 100ml back up of my already half empty 100ml bottle! (those glass/plastic packages/boxes I threw away immediately though )

    Checkfresh I checked it at.
    My code is ''0111'' and it says 2010 but that cannot be so it must be 10 years earlier which is actually about correct (most numbers are repeated each 10 years which is also a remark on that site) as it was bought around that period of time..

    Ohh my "redolent" guys, I utterly love this type of old school concoctions. An excellent hidden gem straight from the 80's for us. I surely detect all around aromatic-fougere elements (lavender, bergamot, hesperides in general, dry-aromatic spices, herbal "kind of anisic" notes in particular) but to me this scent is most of all a woody-mossy-leathery chypre rich of floral/aromatic nuances and muskiness. I detect aldehydes in the opening and a general sense of powdery/metallic "frozen" waxiness (with rubbery/leathery shades). More chypre than this is somewhat hard to pick up around, imo. This scent is closer to Oleg Cassini and Denim that to Azzaro Pour Homme (which is less woody and more properly crisp/herbal, bitter/laundry and dry-spicy) in my humble opinion. While Azzaro Pour Homme keeps on along the way to be herbal-spicy-anisic (with a tons of nuances), Un Homme deflets towards a powdery-woody radiant muskiness with soapy-leathery-waxy facets. Anyway many airy-fougere green/hesperidic "presences" are surely notable and soon bracing. A vintage old-school dusty chypre (woody, powdery, poudre-resinous, misty, aromatic, simply amazing) for us. This by soon "itself unveiling" talky chypre radiancy overstates an initial (however notable) fougeresque fresh piquancy. A grey but all at once radiant-poudre (almost talky) type of classic fragrance, you can get all around a widespread sort of "stale air aura" conjuring the aroma of stored clothes (sort of stuffy fabrics preserved by naphthalene), démodé man's belt, boot polish, moldy woody closets, hand made soaps, furs, penicilin powder and grandma colognes. If you tend to appreciate (conceptually and yet aromatically) scents a la Caron Yatagan, Aramis Devin, Oleg Cassini, Maurer&Wirtz Tabac Original for Men, Vintage Arrogance Pour Homme, Cabochard de Gres, Monsieur Rochas, Visconti di Modrone Tabacco d'Harar, Guerlain Sous le Vent, original Denim, Geo F. Trumper Eucris, Captain Molyneux, Oscar de La Renta Pour Lui, YSL vintage Kouros, Hermes Equipage, Knize Ten, Moustache Rochas etc, etc....well, you can't miss Charles Joudan Un Homme. A diaphane opening is by soon an amazing revelation of aromatic elements and chypre accords, a blast of artemisia, terragon, rosemary, lavender, bergamot, dry patchouli, carnation/geranium, resinous amber and powdery-woody tonka. Along the way leather, wax, dry tobacco and oakmoss start emerging with all that wondeful charge of talky-honeyed chypre nuances. Amber provides talky warmth, a touch of animalic and sticky thickness while jasmine (a stuffy honeyed kind of) takes emerging with all its honeyed "cologney" appeal. Sharp floral notes (geranium and carnation in particular) enhance a general sense of vegetal earthiness, clean detergent refinement and neutral soapiness. The woodiness is mostly cedary and almost incensey (with a secret pencil shavings far echo). All around the atmosphere is powdery, leathery, soapy/barber-shop (with hints of hesperidic wetness) and mossy/incensey (actually soapy/aldehydic more than incensey). Along dry down musks, jasmine and tonka enhance an amplified sense of evocative fresh/airy exoticism. In our depressing age of job flexibility, global terror and shut doors this classic potion exudes manly comfort, leatherwears luxuriousness, sensible wisdom, Grand Hotels conventions, exotic travels and love for tradition, all in one we catch that left back optimistic aura projected by our great dads in the age of creativity and success.
