    Default Classic vintage colognes

    Hi. Which ones you prefere among these?
    Azzaro pH. Equupage. Chanel pour monsieur. Vetiver Guerlain. Boss original (N1). Tuscany. Ho hang. Burberry original. I would appreciate the most warm, woodsy. Classic and not old mannish.

    I haven't tried Tuscany and Ho Hang; among the others, Azzaro is the most warm to me, while Equipage is the most woodsy.

    Classic and not old mannish’ in the same sentence? Wow. Only reason why these became classics is the fact they grew old with the young men who used to wear them and still wear them well into their older years.

    Based on OP’s criteria for woodsy, I’d have to suggest Aramis Tuscany Uomo. Not too familiar the old mannish scale though. Out of curiosity just how young are you OP? 15?

    I've tried Azzaro PH, Tuscany, and Boss No. 1.

    Current Azzaro smells like dirty soap or some old fashioned shaving cream but in a charming way, I guess. I think the poor blending makes it smell a little old mannish but it depends on your skin chemistry.
    Boss No. 1 smells kind of dandy-ish in the middle, floral to my nose.
    I don't like Tuscany that much but I feel that smells more "classic" instead of dated, probably because it's not as well known a scent. Somedays it smells like a nice scent, others it's a bit too much even if sillage isn't crazy.

    None of them smelled woodsy to me, but lean slightly to the warm side.

    The older men know what they’re doing around fragrances. Tabac Original EdC, for example. Within the group listed, I recommend Equipage.

    It depends on your age i would say. From your choices i understand you are talking about vintage perfumes so that my answer is based on vintage.
    Woodsy is difficult to find among your chosen, most of them do not belong to this category.
    The original versions of Boss and Burberry are the 2 real powerhouses. They would be unsuitable for very young gentlemen in my opinion but perfect if you are over, lets say, 25.
    Azzaro PH, Equipage, Chanel pour Monsieur and Ho Hang are classics but probably (with the exception of Azzaro) would fit more an adult (over 30-35).
    Tuscany and Vetiver Guerlain are suitable choices for a bigger range of ages in my opinion.
    You are looking for warm, woodsy thats why i suggest Guerlain Vetiver because i do not know your age.

    My personal favourites would be Chanel pour Monsieur or Azzaro pour Homme.

    I like the first 3 in your list, but Pour Monsieur and Equipage are my favorites.

    And I would be remiss if I didn't encourage you to also smell the vintage Hermes Rocabar. A wonderful and little discussed fragrance around here.

    For me, Guerlain Vetiver and Tuscany Per Uomo would seem woodsiest, but the warmest of the bunch is Chanel Pour Monsieur in it's Eau de Toilette Concentrée/Eau de Parfum variants. The normal Eau de Toilette version is the first one, but much fresher and altogether different.

    I don’t know what “old mannish” smells like so no idea there. As for my favorites from your list (of which I have smelled all), the following classics are favorites of mine and highly recommended:

    Tuscany
    Azzaro pour Homme
    Pour Monsieur
    Burberry Original (of my favorites, this may be the closest to your warm-woody classic descriptor)
    Ho Hang
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    2) Giorgio V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    4) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    5)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    6) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    7) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    7) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    7) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    7) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren) - tie

    Azzaro pH, current formulation, I don't like it. Maybe Tuscany is better.
    I remember boss N1, a little civet and floral.
    Burberry original : very cosy, mature and classy.
    Chanel pour monsieur very warm, but linear.
    I love Guerlain Vetiver, but I find the current formulation too light in woods. I would prefere a more woodsy version and with the least possible amount of moss.

    Tuscany
    Equipage
    Burberrys for Men
    Guerlain Vetiver

    I'm not into Ho Hang, but I love Ho Hang Club. Azzaro Pour Homme has never clicked with me, but lots of people on here love it.

    Ho Hang
    Maybe Burberry originals('82 and '92. '92 is warmer)(unless you are talking about shitty Burberry original from '95 which should be avoided)
    Equipage would be nice too
    Chanel and Guerlain - woodsy but cold
    Azzaro and Tuscany are warm but old school
    Boss may be too much for you at this stage.

    The one among these I prefere is vetiver Guerlain. I find it very exciting, with personality and invigorating. But I can't find nowadays a decent version. The current one is too light on the woods. I tryed the gold cap vintage edt and I found it too mossy, more mossy than woodsy. I love gv mostly for its wood stage. Gv extreme I don't like it.

    In no particular order among these, gladly and enthusiastically recommending most among the aforementioned:

    Chanel pour Monsieur including flankers, Azzaro PH including flankers, Tuscany and also its Uomo Forte flanker, Burberry Original, Guerlain Vetiver, Boss No. 1

    also preferring most if not even all of these as solid woody options with vintage style hints, quite effortlessly available anywhere (if not as vintages, at least as worthy current, present day renditions) at fairly accessible, inexpensive while good value for money prices

    Of the ones you mentioned, Equipage is my favorite.

    Have you tried Chanel Egoiste? It’s very warm & woodsy(sandalwood), it might be exactly what your looking for. (Try to find vintage if you can)

  28. #28

    Default Re: Classic vintage colognes

    Egoiste is another kind of fragrance. Among the ones I listed, Guerlain Vetiver could be my favorite, if I only could find the right version... All the other colognes are not in the league of my beloved vetyveru, vetiver extraordinaire, cdg 2 man... Maybe just Burberry from 1981 can pair them
