    Hi Deleanu ! I'm an absolute beginner in the world of scents, but to me, there are no similarities between OMS and Macassar. Macassar is far more complex, darker, deeper than OMS (which doesn't mean OMS is inferior: they are different.) I'll wait until the drydown of OMS to make up my mind.
    In other words, when I believe OMS goes in one direction (great direction, however), Macassar goes in many, which makes, in a certain way, its complexity.

    EDIT I just smelled the nozzle of Macassar, to compare with OMS. I can see maybe to things they share: the needle pine smell, and a peppery smell. But, when the peppery of OMS comes directly from the huge amount of pine, the one of Macassar comes from something else (which I'm unable to tell.) Other means to compare: should OMS be a colour, it would be a dark green, when Macassar is more a dark yellow, deep gold dark yellow (and by saying this, I don't refer to their juices' colour.) Or, on a musical comparison: where OMS is the horns section, Macassar is the whole orchestra.

    Sorry for my bad English again, I think it is the longer text I've ever written here !

    From the name, you’d expect a woody leather. All I got was a rote citrus opening over a base so generic that the notes defy identification. It’s something as opposed to nothing—nothing more or less than “nice.” Ah, well: it wasn’t too great an investment, at least.
    Tanbark is described as “woodsy” in vintage ads. I’m sorry it wasn’t more memorable but thanks for posting about your testing of it.

    I do love all of the vintage Lenthéric advertising though. I think they had a big ad budget in the 1930’s -40’s. The men’s products were put up in sets called “Three Musketeers.” (women had “Three Silent Messengers” or “Three Secret Messengers”). Great tagline for the men’s products...”Quiet. Perfect Grooming.” This ad is earlier but these sets did include Tanbark afterwards

    Meanwhile, I thought this 1934 ad had a good explanation for the “Bouquet Lentheric” formulation, which was their version of cologne, while their EDT’s were stronger, closer to parfum but not as expensive, (There’s another ad that explains this.)

    Let the silent message tell him of your inner radiance.” So THAT’s why the women's sets are called Silent and Secret Messengers! Despite the insistence that the Bouquet Lentheric formulations are “quiet but with a strange persistence,” I have always found them to be rather light.

    Have you tried “patting” it on with your hands, sir?

    Givenchy Vetyver (vintage)

    Trying this one for the first time (from a decant). My oh my, what a pleasant surprise upon initial application - this is marvelous! Looking forward to seeing how this dries down and what kind of longevity I'll get.
