Lagerfeld Classic

"Classic" is a 1978 Spicy Oriental that is much maligned by the young generation as the reviews I've read attest to.

I say bullshit. Who do you think was wearing this when it was released in 1978? Senior citizens? Get real fellaz. It was the twenty-somethings then as it is the twenty-somethings of today that buy what is currently pushed down your throats with advertising hype.

Spicy citrus with aldehydes opens this masculine with amber racing up from the base to merge with the topnotes. Amber is a dominant note in Classic with cedar,sandal,tobacco,rose and jasmin in the heart. Not classic enough for you? How about some patchouli, musk, oakmoss, tonka and vanilla to go with that amber?

My bad....I don't what I was thinking. How can "Classic" possibly measure up to the likes of Cool Water? Classic, while not outstanding by any means, is a solid masculine worthy of anyone's fall/winter wardrobe. I get annoyed by the "old man & grandpa" ravings of young bucks who don't know the difference between a tonka bean or a tonka truck.


  1. I hear you loud and clear.
    I think it's a masterpiece.
    But you're right, it's outstanding in its lack of desire to do anything but hit its mark.

  2. Aromi,

    What a nice review. I am very attached to Lagerfeld, because that was my dad's favorite. He had many others, but he always came back to the classic. Thank you so much for the enjoyable read.

  3. Thank you. I agree with both of you that Classic doesn't try to be anything more than a good, mainstream fragrance.....and it has always succeeded at that.
