    I've only tried Jazz and safari out of those. Jazz sucks for me, smelled old, moldy, too strong in smell. I quickly swapped my bottle once receiving it. Safari on the other hand is pretty nice, but I'm not so sure it's a "barber shop" scent. The eucalyptus note definitely dominates here, surrounded by lavender and cinnamon, into a dry down with some big time base notes; patchouli, leather, amber, sandalwood, moss, cedar, musk. This one is strong and bold, but not overpowering. I really respect Safari, but again, not for me. Used to have a bottle, and gave it to my father. For me.. when I think barbership frags, I think Rive Gauche, Drakkar Noir, Escada pour Homme, maybe even Paul Sebastian Fine Cologne.

    For me Tsar and if you can get the vintage you are also a winner on the longevity department.
    It smells best out of the four to me and is the most masculine (green and smokey!)

    Tsar is not creamy at all either imo........
    For creamy, go for Molto Smalto if you can find it! It's excellent!

    I can't comment on Safari, but the three others.
    Projection - They have similar projection, with Tsar leading the pack closely followed by Pasha
    longevity - They have similar longevity, with Tsar leading the pack.
    modernity - Pasha and Jazz but more Pasha IMO
    smell - Pasha retains some aspects of the warm-woody accord of Jazz, but with some kinds of flowery notes too. Tsar tends to go in another direction ; same warm-woody accord somewhere into the composition but with a more spicy/aromatic twist (if that makes sense). Too me Tsar is the loudest of the three.
    NB: comments are for the original formulation of both Jazz and Tsar.

    Either of these is very good in its own category, but my personal rating would be:

    Modernity-Jazz
    Longevity-Safari
    Projection-Pasha
    Smell-Tsar

    I would go for Tsar. But from what you've described. Rive Gauche by YSL would be the way to go

    Pasha or Safari. Both smell great, but Safari is rougher than Pasha. One's a hunting jacket and boots and the other (Pasha) is a nice suit and tie or even a tuxedo.

    I love Pasha, even though the current version isn't as potent as it used to be. I don't care for Jazz.

    Bit of an old thread, but probably still a valid question.

    I would say it's between Safari (vintage) and Pasha. I can't comment about Tsar as I haven't tried it; though it is on my 'to test' list... Just not sure exactly where I'll find it in a store.

    Very old thread, but since I love vintage Tsar, Jazz and Pash, I felt compelled to chime in.

    Projection: Vintage Safari projected like a BEAST! Was at a concert once and smelled this from 4 rows back and it lasted hours!
    Longevity: Vintage Safari, Tsar and Jazz all lasted pretty well on me - no problems there.
    Modernity: I personally don't find any of these modern, but Tsar, Jazz and Pasha are classics in their vintage formula.
    Smell: Vintage Tsar reigns supreme in this category. Women just love this and I get compliments galore when I'm properly scented in Tsar. I personally love Pasha and Jazz, but Tsar is the finest, in my humble opinion. Vintage Safari is also well blended, but I don't feel it measures up to the others in scent or originality. Safari smells like a good "product", whereas Tsar, Jazz and Pasha were works of art. From the Ralph Lauren house, I've always preferred Monogram and Polo Modern Reserve.

    I've not tried Jazz or Tsar. But I like Safari more than Pasha, although it is a good one as well.

    Safari is my 2nd favorite fragrance in my entire wardrobe, so for me, for scent, it's Safari over these. I still enjoy Pasha very much, but Safari is deeper, more profound.

    Jazz is the only one I don't own, but Tsar is my favourite. The other 2 are also in my top 25 frags of all time, but I prefer Tsar the most.

    Projection - Tsar
    longevity - Pasha
    modernity - Safari
    smell - Tsar

    If you like one I imagine you will likely enjoy all of them.

    Tsar is the greenest, Pasha has the most oakmoss and Safari is the spiciest but also the cleanest.

    Projection - Pasha overwhelms me ( and prolly others!)
    longevity - Pasha has legs
    modernity - none maybe safari could pass for its banana thingy going on
    smell - Jazz!

    Jazz wins, pasha lite avec a swanky note in a good way.
    Pasha too rich for me.
    Tsar umm... maybe try again, felt a bit green metholated basic aftershave when I try it ( decant is savored still though every now and again)
    Safari never got on with.
