I have been using this product since 2005 and love it as much today as I did 8 years ago. It absolutely smells like you just walked out of a barbershop with just a hint of spice. Don't think of Clubman by Pinaud or PS by Paul Sebastian, but think Barbasol with a dash of anise and oakmoss.

Is it riveting? No. Is it good? Absolutely. It is my go-to when I (1) can't decide what to wear and (2) want to play it safe, but not too safe. It always draws compliments and lasts a good 6-8 hrs on my skin. With that said, longevity is above average and I say projection is average on the borderline of just slightly below average. With all that being said, I give RGPH a solid B+/A-!!!

This is a nice clean barbershop type frag. Doesn't smell like an old man, just classy like you just finished a nice shave. Good for after the gym or in the morning... I spray some on before work once in a while.. I like barbershop scents even though those fragrances were before my time. Not a date night or evening frag.. More if a clean throwback fun Barbosol smell

            This is the holy grail of classic manly cologne. I've searched for that old school barber shop smell for years and once I found this my search ended. It just smells...clean. I can't describe how great it really is. It's a "you'll know it when you smell it" sort of thing.

              Rive Gauche is just a great clean fresh scent. I pair this with either Fine- American Blend or RazoRock- American Barber aftershaves.
