    Default Ralph Lauren Safari Alternative??

    Guys,

    I am feeling nostalgic and want to wear the cologne that garnered me the most compliments in High School. I would just run out and purchase a bottle of Safari, but from what I read on the forum, it isnít the same fragrance now as it was 20+ years ago. Is there an equivalent that has the same or similar scent? Thanks for the help!

    Just get a vintage one

    I believe it's still similar to itself and you won't find anything more next than it.

    You should be able to find a vintage one being sold by someone.

    I find the current one not too far away from the vintage stuff. But you might find an older one for a good price just by searching the bay - among the offers that are NOT listed as vintage.

    If you can't find a vintage version at a good price, the current version of Cartier Pasha is pretty close to Safari.

    Geo F. Trumpers - Sandalwood

    Vintage Safari Collection


    The only fragrance that smells like it to me is Geo F. Trumpers Sandalwood. It's so similar (note, not 'exactly' the same, but close) that I use the bath soap, deodorant and balm in my shaving set as an alternate to my vintage set in order to preserve my vintage set and spare it too many uses over time. So, that would be my recommendation.

    And Ralph Lauren Safari is my #2 rated fragrance in my collection. So, I kind of take it seriously.
