The glorious 80s... Fabulous and unforgettable decade of launching. Fragrances which at that time meant to be modern and high class. Synonymous of status. This heavy resinous classic from the 1980's is one of the greenest patchouli bombs ever. Giorgio For Men is what men's colognes should smell like. Distinctive, mysterious, bold. It is not a fougere, not a gourmand or a chypre...it is just in a category of it's own. In this fragrance, dating back from 1984, you find the DNA of many newer fragrances. JPG Le Male and even some resemblance with Mugler Angel comes to mind.

The opening brings aldehydes and bergamot. Slowly the patchouli begins to grow, beginning powdery and starchy, to become later slightly bitter and smoky, with a faint scent of orris. With the slightly animalic honey, the bittersweet cinnamon, and the soft but dark rose, resulting in a notorious spicy effect. The patchouli trail gets even stronger near the end of the development. A more muted spiciness; and an almost oriental dry down thanks to the smooth amber, musk and vanilla accord. On the whole this fragrance presents some polarity because it can be relaxed but also formal, elegant but with some rudeness, and classic without ceasing to be contemporary.


An incredible bargain for such a quality fragrance. Honey, oakmoss and patchouli are present. Powerful sillage and great longevity. Beautiful bottle. Giorgio for men is a classic.


This is no more synthetic than 99% of fragrances today. In a world of IFRA restrictions this is keeping very true to the vintage, which I have as well.

Opens with a bright and juicy orange with some aldehydes. Excellent patchouli hearts along with carnation and cinnamon. Closing out with one of the best honey notes along with oak moss and vanilla.

Overall a powerhouse 80s scent still relevant today when so many are so subdued.


It's hard to believe how inexpensive this is for the high quality you get. The packaging and bottle alone are worth the price you pay. But then that awesome juice smells like it should cost 4 times as much. I would easily pay $60 for this. The thing that tops it all off is this legendary beast still has genuine OAKMOSS! The quality, performance, scent and value is simply unmatched in the industry. I hope E.A. Fragrances keeps everything JUST THE WAY IT IS because they've really got something here to brag about!


Very very bad! I don't find the words to explain. It's like old incense. I don't know if it is because I have the new version but it smells like rotten flowers and it is very heavy.


Don't get this at all. Bought as a blind buy (cheap, heritage status) but the opening was a much harsher version of Aramis with none of the pleasant drydown of that fragrance. Went wrong by having 3-4 sprays and couldn't get the overpowering cinnamon/raw ginger smell out of my nose all day. I know it's well regarded but it's a definite scrubber for me...if I could get the scent off with a wire brush!
