Brooks Brothers Question?

Post by frederick » Mon Jul 21, 2008 4:03 pm

I really like the scent of Brooks Brothers but am looking for something with a similiar scent but not as powdery. Would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks

Clark

Just to be clear, are you talking about the regular Brooks Bros. cologne or the Brooks Bros. 1818? I have no experience with the former. What's it like, gents? (I guess the obvious answer from this thread would be "like Taylor Sandalwood, but sweeter and more powdery")

My reference was for 1818. Not familiar with (regular) BB cologne. Tim, my assumption might have led me to the wrong comparison.

Clark, there are some good ones out there that might work for you. It depends to some degree on how much you wish to spend. My favorite driest sandalwood scents are Lorenzo Villoresi Sandalo followed by Diptyque Tam Dao, but there's no assurance that either one would work for you. Frankly, I like 1818 as much as either of the two and it costs a lot less.

Ah, Squire, I would not have imagined you would like Villoresi. I just re-acquired a 1.7 ounce bottle of Piper Nigrum.

Don't know much about the line Sam, this is the only one I have. It might be more accurate to say I'm a Sandalwood fan.
