Luciano, Luciano Pavarotti. 1999.

Layering after-shave with eau de toilette.

The after-shave is dry, a bit austere. It reminds me (not meaning it's the same scent, of course) Andy Warhol for Men.
I'll edit my post in a short time after wearing the eau de toilette.

EDIT the eau de toilette is like the after-shave. There is something bitter in the opening, which recedes a bit after a few minutes.
Pleasant, but a bit synthetic and nothing groundbreaking.

EDIT 2 There is something woody now. It's better.

Lovely! I don't know when the switch happened from 'Para Hombre' to 'Pour Homme' but your bottle certainly looks like an early one from the 80's.
Yes, it sure is!
Neither do I. My bottle, in excellent condition for this type of scent and of this age (purchased here on the market place from a great guy and Englishman like you), is pre-barcode, as well as without any e-sign, so I gather that they switched from Spanish to French quite early on.

Good morning, my friends. I’m starting this Saturday simply with Green Irish Tweed aftershave. It’s a perfect level of fragrance to go with my morning coffee, as I ponder the things I need to do versus the things I want to do. Hope everyone have an amazing weekend!

Or Masculine by Bourjois (1976? 1982? 1985?)
(I've seen a variety of years suggested as the year of inception for this amazing unicorn. 1985 seems too late to me and 1976 is quite realistic but apparently there is no consensus. Hmm. It's been said that this is a precursor to 1986's Bel Ami and that is plausible to me as they are quite similar spicy, woody leathers. Perhaps the original 1966 Aramis is the grandaddy of them all? Whatever the heritage or lineage of Or Masculine it is a beautiful leather fragrance that is nearly impossible to find. If you do find one and you love Bel Ami or similar fragrances you'd do well to grab it!)

Perfume Intelligence shows 1982 as the year of its launch. Happen to own and love it also. Don't remember the exact year I got this, but it was in the 80s.
