The Veg! SpectacularIt does smell masculine but not very modern. It reminds me of my early years in the 70's and early 80's, when I was just a little kid. It evokes strong memories in that regard. I'm sure lots of men were wearing this style of fragrance back then. My grandfathers may have done so, and I'm sure I smelled this alot on men in general.
On the other hand, it's less dated than Clubman. You wear Special Reserve and you won't smell like a turn-of-the-last century barbershop.
This is definitely one of the classier Pinaud fragrance . Next up to try is Lilac Vegetal.
