    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).

    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.

    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.

    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 .

    Regards,

    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)

    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

    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]

    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! ;)
