    Ladies and gentlemen: Which fragrance is your favourite?

    I have three currently: Burberry London,Viktor Rolf's Antidote ,and finally,Ralph Lauren's Polo original in the green bottle.

    Doesn't hurt that my sister in law is a Ralph Loren rep either!!!

  2. I've worn, and loved, Penhaligon's mens scents for 25 years or so, starting with Eau de Portugal, which was renamed (badly IMO) to Lords, but is now known as Douro. I now alternate between Douro, their fairly new Endymion, and the classic Hammam Bouquet (Penhaligon's first ever scent, dating from 1872).

    I have two:


    For spring and summer I like Un Jardin sur le Nil from Herm?®s. It's a crisp citrus/fresh scent.


    For autumn and winter I like Stella, which smells of roses and oranges.

    Truefit & Hill's Spanish Leather, but I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered Burberry's London fragrance the other day.

  9. Roger & Gallet L'Homme

    Fragrance Information:
    L'Homme Roger & Gallet, an original and rare perfume that never ceases to amaze. Its fresh, citrus head notes created by a harmony of mint, juniper berry and ylang ylang is sustained by woody notes enriched with spice and amber. A fragrance with character, that is resolutely masculine.

  10. Brooks Bros. Royalle Muske, Polo Ralph Lauren Black, and Hollister Jake.
  11. Bay Rum

    Bay Rum is the classic and Old Spice
  12. Depends on my mood...

    • Aqua Di Parma;
    • Tuscany;
    • Drakkar Noir; or
    • Paul Sebastion Design
  13. Bay Rum is my personal favorite. My wife buys me Jake by Hollister and some Paul Sebastion. But, I would still rather have the $5.29 bottle of Bay Rum from the local Barber's Supply and like some of the oldtimers I even use it in my hair from time to time, Boy its good stufflol .

    For me my favorite is Gardenia by Chanel.

    JamesT1 Familiar Face

    Le Dandy by D'Orasy, Royal Bain de Champaigne by Caron, Green Irish Tweed by Creed, Sandalwood by Geo F. Trumper, and Eau d'Hadrien by Annick Goutal would all round out my top five favourites.
  17. My top scents

    •Peterman 1903
    •Yardley Gentleman
    •Burberry Weekend
    •St Johns Bay Rum
    •Royall Lyme
    …and a few 'rail' brands

    But for a daily to-work scent it's …
    Genuine Ogallala Bay Rum nice and light, it dosen't scream at people (like some guys 'lotions' in the office)
  18. Surprised no one has mentioned it, but I strictly wear the cologne favored by Bogart and Cary Grant–– Acqua Di Parma.

    Classic, but hard as hell to find.

    Regards! Vintage
  19. I wanted to buy Chanel No. 5 for the vintage/classic connection, but I took a wiff and was not impressed. Is it an aquired smell, or am I nuts?[huh]
  20. I used to wear Lucky for women, but my new favorite is Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue. I feel beautiful when I wear it! No need to mention it is a designer imposter version that I got for half the price, the company that makes them is great and no one has ever been able to tell the difference! ;)
