    Yes, agree 100%. First time I wore the vintage after being used to the modern version (and shortly after trying Bandit for the first time), I saw a relationship as well. Same sort of glossy-dark-sharp edge to the leather. I get no Bandit from the modern but still like it.

    Love this one.

    Allyn St. George cologne

    Cited in a review of Ben Rickert’s Bené as “one of many unique and manly fragrances that seem gone forever now,” I can’t speak to its uniqueness, but it’s certainly a fine lavender-centric aromatic fougère.

They should’ve named it, “Guy who is wearing WAY too much Michael Jordan cologne rolling some wet leaf tobacco.” Then folks may been smitten with it. Well, some perhaps. But this sequel doesn’t use the same cast and even removed some from the original flick. Luckily for me, I picked up a 3/4 full tester from a fragrance store (brick and mortar) for $26 because they stopped selling Tabarome Millesime and the owner didn’t want nor know what to do with the tester. That was back in 2010, and the owner said it was an older bottle. It’s definitely pre-2005 as there’s no batch code. The opening is nearly gone. This fragrance is ginger, whole leaf tobacco and ambergris with a soft kiss of sandalwood running in there somewhere. The ginger is presented too strong in the opening but settles in nicely once this thing dries down. Actually this fragrance is messy until it dries down. About 15-20 minutes in, it becomes a pleasant spicy tobacco and ambergris thingy. Moderate projection for 4-6 hours, depending on how much you spray (1-3 sprays), with it wearing closely and only slightly more than a skin scent for a grand total of 8-9 hours.

    Who needs this? Nobody except for someone trying to complete their Creed catalog. Who will enjoy this? Potentially anyone that doesn’t know the original Tabarome and expect something along the lines of that or that’s wanting a good leather fragrance. For $26, and me judging it separately from its namesake, it’s outstanding. It’s got the basic elements that make an aficionado happy, drama of quality ingredients battling it out before coming to an agreement. It’s interesting and ultimately - good.

    I enjoy wearing this most after I’ve been working hard outside in the summer heat and being fresh out the shower, or, when I’ve been a really bad boy the night before. And it ain’t summertime.
    Well.....I purchased a bottle before I read this. Thankfully I did not pay over $100 for it . Got it from my Creed freak buddy. I guess I shouldn't hate it because of your opinion . I'll give it a full wearing soon.

    Tabarome Millesime has the same sandalwood note in it that can be found in Santal Imperial, although not nearly as pronounced and is especially present in the older bottles. Depending on how old the bottle, the ambergris and sandalwood will be more pronounced. Go in expecting a weird combination up front but for sure give it time to settle in on your skin. You need to give this a proper wearing. When I first smelled it I thought my wife would hate it but she didn’t. I waited for it to drydown before letting her smell it. She commented that it kinda reminded her of a zingy version of Perry Ellis Red. It doesn’t really smell like PER but it wears with about that same weight and then has that ginger note providing the zing. I won’t say that I love it but I do love wearing it while I’m doing some outdoor grilling FWIW. It’s daring, different, and kinda weird which makes it interesting enough to keep my attention. Thankfully, it doesn’t have noteworthy longevity so it’s only an evening’s commitment to wear. It clicked for me on the 3rd or 4th wearing while I was grilling steaks and enjoying a cognac. Best wishes to you.

    I don't own many Creed fragrances because I just don't seem to wear them well. Although BdP seems to do pretty good on my skin. We shall see how this one acts.

    If you look beyond the ginger and enjoy the ambergris/sandalwood base at, then I highly recommend older Green Irish Tweed. I recently acquired some 2010 GIT and, although not a favorite batch among some, I love it end it performs SO very well for me. BTW, TM and GIT aren’t alike. GIT is a better fragrance. Just offering a bit more info. I look forward to reading your thoughts on TM!

    Ah, the dark one. Dali Pour Homme is what Dracula wears when he’s without his cape and looking for a romantic encounter in a cigar pub. I look forward to reading your thoughts as well!



    As for me, been a long stressful day and I went uninspired with Clinique’s Happy For Men. Simple and clean. I did receive my 1.7 of Deep Forest by Bogner but I’m not going to wear it until it acclimates to my house. I did cycle the sprayer until I got a spritz out on the box insert but I was met with a blast of lavender and labdanum which struck me too much like something my grandma wore long ago. So I’m giving it some time and then I’ll cycle a good hit of juice through the nozzle to give it all a wash before wearing it and making an assessment. I look forward to the actual wearing because the notes look promising and I’ve been told it’s good. So the first sniff holds no bearing on my thoughts at this point.

    I would recommend older Green Irish Tweed bottles as well. Much more full-bodied with strong emphasis in ambergris and woods in the base. The fresh opening is not as strong which I actually prefer, it some ways I think Creed made it more fresh to appeal to a wider audience.

    Thankfully Dali Pour Homme does become more tamed a few hours in - mossy and earthy at the base with oakmoss, patchouli, woods, and amber. The opening and mid notes are a bit of a struggle - it might be the anise and one or more of the florals. That period was very herbal and spicy, to my nose it was off-putting. If I could just fast forward to the drydown for this one, this would be a like. For now it's inconclusive.

    Try wearing Dali Pour Homme next October. Strangely, it will fit in and you’ll start craving steaks that are rare.

    Btw, the original bottle of Elsa Schiaparelli's "Shocking" perfume was molded after Mae West's torso. West had her torso in cast/casted and sent to Schiaparelli in France, for her to use as template to create a dress for West, and used for the bottle as well.
    Dalí and Schiaparelli were also close friends and inspired eachother in their works, so your thoughts make sense, as Mae West seems to be the common denominator of the two

    The Sanofi and JC distribution of GF are wearable for me. The ashtray note is still very present but at least that dissipates with those and it settles in nicely. The newer stuff is still a struggle. And my original assessment of the new stuff smelling like an outdoor ashtray has just been rooted so deeply that I can’t shake it. Anyone that’s ever had to clean one of those out knows the smell I’m talking about. The new stuff is that smell mixed with a nice fresh scent. The older stuff is simply a bit of ashtray for the first 10-15 minutes that goes away and leaves a very pleasant smell. I don’t reach for it much but I’ve come to enjoy it in vintage form.


    Today I’m wearing something that will be a true vintage in just a few years... L’Occitan Eau De Toilette
