I enjoy Quorum as well. But absolutely it's been reformulated, probably several times, it's a 40 year old cologne. Oak moss has been replaced, other ingredients have been sacrificed, it still smells pretty good but different to its original formulation. IFRA has handcuffed and made most classic...
Brogueing is the holes punched in the leather, not the style of the shoe. A more formal Oxford, with closed lacing, can have brogueing. And a less formal blutcher can be plain, without brogueing. It's more about the lacing, open vs closed, that makes the formality of the shoe. I think if you...

Same as above. Proraso is gone in 30 minutes or less, but oh so nice while it lasts. My favorite A/S. You can wear any frag you want and they won't compete or conflict.

Bonobos summer weight chinos are very good quality. Slim fit is excellent for me nice taper not too tight. No pocket flare. They have a nice selection of colors, they run $88 but sales happen occasionally
Try Kanon Norwegian Wood for something inexpensive (cheap). Longevity isn't great but you can spray liberaly at this price.
Givenchy Pi is a good one.
Also Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme. No vanilla in the notes, but lots of tonka, which comes off as a creamy vanilla.
