    The spray version is another Warner Polo but with a sticker at the bottom. This was my first acquisition and unfortunately came without a box.


    The last one is a bottle i used to have but not anymore.... It was a 200 ml bottle made in France (Place Vandome), not Cosmair neither Warner made.
    I have never managed to smell it though because it was stollen along with a significant part of my vintage collection so that i cannot make any statements about the perfume.


    I do not have a photo of the Cosmair version bottle which is a spray version yet.
    Wow! Thanks for sharing!

    The whole bottle is up under the cap (5oz) and the bottle is a little taller than 7in total. It's a very soft sort of pre-Halston vibe but more fougère in the base, less spice and more woods.

    Yes, the vintage is awesome on the birch tar in particular. Probably the best birch tar representation for me...

    Thanks. I was not getting a good sense of the scale.
    Which Halston are you referring to? I have their first release (1975) as well as Z-14 and I-12. I've been meaning to see what I-12 is all about. That is, I've tried it, but haven't given it a proper wear to see how it plays out.

    Avon Deep Woods is closest to I-12 but really is its own animal. A clean, semi-sweet woody little cologne with close sillage, best for wet shaving.

    Chanel Bois Noir

    I’ve finally given Chanel Bois Noir (a recent decant arrival – many thanks, BTW) a full test drive today. And this evening, I re-applied some to one arm, and applied some current Egoiste to the other in order to compare. It’s been a couple of hours now, so I feel that both have dried down sufficiently to allow my novice nose a chance to offer a few brief impressions. I’ll just highlight some of them, as I’m not really experienced in reviewing fragrances in great detail.

    First off, they are both quite similar, and I enjoy them both, for sure. There are some slight differences to me, however, and those are what I’ll mention, FWIW. The first is that the Bois Noir has a very noticeable “orange-y” citrus note in the opening, making it much brighter than the current Egoiste opening (I’m not that knowledgeable on discerning the differences between the different orange type fruits in fragrances like tangerine, and mandarin, etc) and it stays around for quite a long while in the Bois Noir, which I like. Another difference is cinnamon. It makes only a brief appearance in Bois Noir (to me), but it is in abundance in the Egoiste. Another difference is rose. I detect no rose note in Bois Noir, but I definitely notice it in the current Egoiste. The final difference I’ll mention is more of a “feeling” than a scent description, and that is that the current Egoiste has a feeling of being “heavier”, or “thicker” than the Bois Noir. Sort of like how molasses is thicker than maple syrup, if that makes any kind of sense. It’s for this reason that Egoiste is for cold weather only, for me. But I could see Bois Noir working on a summer night (if not over applied); and it’s this final “feeling” that, if I had to choose one over the other, makes me favor Bois Noir over the current Egoiste. But is it enough to warrant me splurging for a full bottle one day? Only if I were to win the lottery!

    Aero, you’re naturally good at smelling things. I have followed posts on Bois Noir over the years, and this is one of the best, somewhat in the IsoESuperman style, sincere effort and modesty.

    My curiosity is piqued. I had a look online and found a lot of the after shave and a lot of empty decanters. Seems like the sort of fragrance that would turn up with some regularity, so maybe I'll get lucky.
