    I am not a big fan of this one, but BN9 Great Jones is a pretty accurate representation of a 70s/80s style powerhouse.

    Tom Ford generally does this sort of thing very well IMO. Tom Ford For Men, Grey Vetiver, Noir Anthracite are other excellent examples.

    I think Amouage Interlude and Memoir Man both bear mentioning as well.

    Curious and appreciate others thoughts here. I’m somewhat skewed when I think of this as I’m literally sniffing a comparison of Kouros vintages at the moment. And who does oakmoss like a Captain Molyneaux these days? Restrictions and all.

    Having said that mess, two fragrances that strike me as having an old soul are:
    -Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland (something about it makes me think it took inspiration from Révillon Pour Homme.)
    -Noir Anthracite by Tom Ford

    Vert de Fleur reminds me a lot of Grey Flannel.

    First thing that comes to mind is Amouage Bracken Man, a fantastic, manly fougere.

    Fougere L' Aube by Rogue. Sparkling, fresh and really a rendition of the fougere's of old. Potent.

    TF Noir Anthracite is a terrific example. It doesn't simply recreate an older style with a fresh coat of paint, but boldly pushes the scent DNA forward to make something altogether new.

    Areej Le Doré Siberian Musk is a loving tribute to those big musky animalic powerhouses of the ‘70s.

    Tom Ford's Italian Cypress and 1962 by Floris are both paeans to more classic men's fragrances imo

    Don’t know if it counts given it’s a reissue, but Guerlain Derby fits the bill.

    Agree on Bel Ami Vetiver, that’s a good one. Maybe Amouage Gold Man? Not exactly modern (1998), but not 70s/80s either.

    Agree with the OP on New York Intense but would also add Tom Ford Fougere d'Argent (arguable) and also Diptyque's latest Eau de Minthe.

    Sang Bleu by Le Galion is like a well behaved Kouros.

    A lot of great suggestions so far. Seconding New York Intense, Mazzolari Lui, Floris 1962, Mousse Illuminee, Beau de Jour.

    Also suggesting Amouage Journey Man and Parfums de Marly Lippizan

    I sometimes wish Journey Man was a little stronger, but it's got the hariy-chested gold medallion vibe for sure.

    The sample I have of Lippizan is downright animalic and funky at times, which really surprised me since it's a Parfums de Marly.
    Not my cup of tea but definitely a throwback type of scent.

    New York Intense is the first one that came to mind seeing the thread title. Perhaps Beach Hut Man?

    Maai by Bogue is great, powerful.
    Love Mousse Illuminee for clean mossy.
    Arquiste El is a surprisingly aromatic fougere throwback.
    New York Intense is fantastic but so is Azemour Orange by Parfum D’empire.
