    Default Best performance Vintages

    I was wondering what is your best performing vintage cologne.

    I have been collecting niche colognes for 10+ years and 100+ niche colognes later I felt that I tried most of the houses and colognes I wanted to try so recently I turned my interest toward vintage colognes. And although I like oakmass I find that performance of the most I tried is just above average. So I am asking you to recommend ones that perform better then others.

    Possibly too many to mention and/or to remember, but strictly so far had some of the best if not even the only experiences with the performance achieved/gotten in the case of the following ones in their vintage versions, namely:

    YSL pour Homme Concentree, M7 and/or Opium Eau d'Orient by the same house of YSL, Chevignon Brand for Men, Boucheron pour Homme, several Bogart fragrances, most if not all Marbert masculines, Salvador Dali pour Homme, Antaeus and/or Egoiste by Chanel, Heritage EDT, Trussardi Uomo, Knize Ten, Esencia Loewe, Ungaro II and/or III, Drakkar and/or Drakkar Noir, Azzaro pour Homme, Givenchy Gentleman, most Davidoff male scents including Relax, Gucci Nobile, most Lancetti masculines, Mugler AMen, quite few Joop including Homme, Nightflight and/or What about Adam, most Jovan male/unisex choices, Extase Musk, Tuscany, Havana and/or Tuscany Uomo Forte, Creed REL

    to name only a few

    Try more like 18 hours. That's one I have to scrub off when I'm done wearing it. XD

    There are many vintage powerhouses, suggest you check the separate forum, which has a lot of old threads with the fragrances listed.

    Bogart Furyo, Kouros are 2 that can last 12+ easily.
