A fresh citrus explosion at the top notes (tangerine, grapefruit, lime and bergamot) is harmonized with a floral sharpness of lavender, nut, spiced notes of coriander and warm cinnamon. Carnation (along with jasmine, rose tree and pine) is restrained with warm patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, benzoin, vanilla and amber. Subtle aroma of red berries enforces the structure, adding sensuousness and characteristic to the perfume. The creator of this fragrance is Bob Slattery, and the bottle...

I received this vintage cologne as a 'gift' (from member and Hobbyist 'bmharold' a.k.a. Brandon), and was impressed with this fragrance so much...I'm gonna post a review.
I also understand that these vintage bottles may be the last of this product on earth, so one should not get too attached to the scent.
Brandon states the barcode dates it to at least between 1974 - 1983.
From Clubman, I received a e-mail stating;

This is my newest fragrance and has rapidly become my go-to. The opening is a pleasantly pungent hit of citrus and basil. These notes morph seamlessly into a slightly spicier note of ginger and citrus with the basil fading into a very slight flowery note. The dry down leaves a touch of woodiness (ala Spanish Cedar), a very slight citrus touch and reminds me of my favorite pipe tobacco.
Xeryus Rouge is a commanding, masculine fragrance if ever there were one. Forget Chuck Norris quips, he would buckle under it's magnitude. Nay, this is what the most masculine of all men would wear. This is what Charles Bronson would wear for a night out of exacting merciless vigilante justice on the heathen masses.
Xeryus Rouge starts out slightly sweet, but very peppery and woody. Once the heart begins to develop, all sweetness is gone, the fragrance turns to a very dry wood, like one...

Top notes are plum, banana leaf, pear and pepper; middle notes are cypress, fig leaf, jasmine and guaiac wood; base notes are sandalwood, amber, patchouli, tahitian vetiver, musk and cedar.
Top Notes: Grapefruit, Clary sage leaves, Black pepper, Lily of the valley
Middle Notes: Vetiver from Java
Base Notes: Cedarwood, Cistus, Ambergris, Tonka bean
Interesting mix of scents here. It starts off with great sillage. The greenness of the notes mixes well with the citrus, florals and spice. The tonka sweetens it. The vetiver is very grassy and is probably the closest I've smelled to actual grass, but the other notes add more freshness and depth. Once the wood enters the...
At the heart of the scent: Vetiver, with an elegant Sandalwood note and dashes of Cypress, Juniper and Pink Pepper, for an earthy, warm and enveloping, yet subtle presence. ~ Chanel site
Now this is a nice surprise. Great vetiver on par with Encre Noire but at the same time it's less harsh. This could be used year-round but most would like it for the late summer/fall/winter periods. The vetiver is very clear at the beginning but the nice juniper and cypress soften the experience. Very...
Top Notes: Coffee beans, spice oils, incense
Heart Notes: Sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, vetiver
Base Notes: Ambegris, oakmoss, vanilla
This is a nice sandalwood (more woody like planks of wood than typical incense) sweetened with vanilla and an enjoyable ambergris. The opening is a bit harsh and very earthy but it softens to a nice exotic scent not unlike Timbuktu (but without the fruit). The sillage isn't great like Timbuktu but it probably would be a monster if it did project too...
Givenchy Vetiver original
Top ~ Tarragon, bergamot, Cinnamon
Heart ~ Cedar, Vetiver & patchouli
Base ~ Civet & Russian Leather
This is powerful from the start. It's a little like Guerlain's sweet vetiver but with more woods and herbs. It's very pungent. The tarragon pungent smell mixes with the bergamot to give off an "herby" floor cleaner smell (not as bad as described) and the leather gives off a stately quality and helps to contrast the greenness of the herbs. In terms of...
