Description
Vintage blends the exotic astringency of juniper, patchouli, and lavender with the cool reserve of fir balsam for an Old World, polished feel. A satiny layer of jasmine adds a layer of plush floral elegance in the heart, while a base of tobacco and suede accent the herbs with private club sophistication.

Leather and Tobacco
This makes you smell like you're in an old-timey library with high back leather chairs, smoking a gentleman's pipe, and drinking scotch in black jeans and harness boots. Sophisticated, yet also worn and rugged type of manly.

Really nice every day scent. Not too bold, for every day wear
This is a great scent for wearing to work. ITs clean and light, and not too overpower or bold, but incredibly pleasant.

It is very hard to rate what other people think about the scent, because we are all quarantined in the house. I liked it very much!
When you are quarantined in your apartment, you can’t get other people’s opinion. I liked it very much, because it was fresh and not overpowering. I have other scents that are very overpowering and people have complained about the smell. This scent is great!

Again, I get these for my boyfriend so he can try new scents. This one reminds me of the nineties, maybe early 2000's. It has a very after shave effect but can also be sophisticated.

As a collector...
I collect and sample many colognes. This smelled as advertised and vintage similarity but smelled like a couple of nostalgic musky colognes from the 90s. The suede and juniper smells together kinda saved it from getting a bad review. For the younger guys this is similar to what your father would wear back in the day...
