  3. Obviously L.T. Piver "A la Reine des Fleurs", which was designed in 1774, making it the oldest French cologne.

    (Not an EdT, I know, but still)

    Penhaligon's English Fern
    Floris No.89
    Guerlain Jicky

    I have some on your list currently inbound, but from my current den, I'd say:

    Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet (1902)
    GFT Spanish Leather (1902) - a cologne, but too good to leave out ;).
    GFT Eucris (1912)
    Knize Ten (1924)
    Guerlain Vetiver (1961)
    Dior Eau Sauvage (1966)
    Givenchy Gentleman (1974)
    Caron Yatagan (1976)

    And whilst it falls right on the cut-off year, I've got to mention Caron Le 3' Homme (1985).

  10. Just as a heads up, Eucris (the fragrance) was created in the 80s, despite what Trumpers and/or Basenotes might say.

    Yes indeedy. The 1912 Eucris product was a hairdressing scented with lily.

    Apparently most of the Trumper scents have been through the reformulation process, so although they carry original names the scents are totally different (and far more palatable to modern tastes.)

    This is what I've been able to glean, none are certain so dont take it as gospel.

    Marlborough = Aramis
    Wellington = Blenheim Bouquet
    Astor = Burberry Burberry
    Curzon = Dunhill For Men
    Wild Fern = Penhaligon's English Fern
    Sandalwood = Chanel Egoist
    Spanish Leather = Imperial leather
    GFT = 4711
    Eucris = Not sure but its been likened to Ralph Lauren Polo

    Ahh - thanks for that info, Joe. It makes more sense for it to be from the '80s, having such a prominent oakmoss note and being a "big" fragrance. How about the Spanish Leather - same deal?
     
  13. I couldn't say for sure, but I would have to question any published dates for any perfumes if there are no ancient bottles knocking about.

    I thought Eucris was supposed to be a favourite with James Bond in some book from the 1950s.

    Sounds like you didn't read the entire post?

    "Secondly, we are not even sure Fleming was referencing the cologne version of Eucris; many believe he was talking about the hairdressing (far more likely as the bottle is next to a brush and comb)."

    Also see post #11 where I say exactly the same thing :rolleyes:

    I have ordered Pour Un Homme de Caron and Monsieur de Givenchy EDT's and a Paco Rabanne Pour Homme AS, although I already have one knocking around. I also picked up a Quorum AS, I will pair this with Pino Silvestre shaving soap next shave.
