Rated 5 out of 5 by gvm267 Brooks Brothers Classic Cologne
The best men's cologne on the market. I wear it every day. I travel across the country weekly and not a week goes by that someone, somewhere comments on how good my cologne smells. This product is a winner and I hope Brooks Brothers never discontinues it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Arete True Classic - Needs companion Aftershave
This is a true classic cologne that represents everything Brooks Brothers should stand for. Women compliment the fragrance frequently - something that never happened with any other cologne or after shave I've used. It is very disappointing that the after shave is no longer available. They supplement each other well and for those who think that the cologne is too strong, the after shave would be perfect - and it was.

This fragrance is beyond classic. It offers a unique balance between male energy and sophistication. It is the ONLY fragrance about which I have received spontaneous, appreciative comments from both female strangers and friends.
I regret only that Brooks Brothers has discontinued the after-shave versions of this special product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RBNYC AWESOME, DISTINGUISED SCENT and LONG-LASTING
Scent-Wise, this reminded me a bit of all those Clean Summer scents like Wings, Davidoff Cool Water, or Acqua di Gio. The difference is when those other colognes wear off, they're gone. This one started off as Fresh with a Clean, Fresh scent, but over the course of the day it took on different tones (More subdued, and pleasant tones). Also, I spray on my Undershirt or Skin instead of on my Outer shirt or Jacket. Yet the outershirt still smells like the cologne when I take it out of the hamper on laundry day. This is the BIG difference in how fragrance is formulated. Those other guys use cheap ingredients, and lots of filler that evaporates quickly. This one goes the distance and then some. And yes, I got asked what scent I was wearing by someone I met at a happy hour one evening. NOTE: The Black Fleece ones smell nice, but they don't have lasting power. They evaporate like the department store ones. This is the WINNER here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrJB Distinctive, conservative, classic
This fragrance has earned the name "classic." It is the descendant of Brooks No. 44 which I wore exclusively from 1978 until it was discontinued. The Classic Cologne replaced No. 44 and was, alas, inferior to No. 44 but superior to almost any other cologne I tried (with the exception of Hermes Bel Ami which I use on occasion). I was terribly disappointed when Brooks Bros. discontinued No. 44. I'd be apoplectic if they discontinued their Classic Cologne.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Classicdad1 I was impressed with the freshness of the fragrance, however, I wished that the scent would last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennyf Best smelling cologne ever.
My husband has worn this since I first bought it for him in 1997. I love how it smells on him, but he has women stopping him in stores to ask the name of it, every where he goes. It's unusually sexy and addictive. It's not musky or fruity or too overwhelming, it's subtle and intriguing. I would recommend it to everyone.
The young girl clerk at Brooks Brothers told us "My brother just discovered it and loves it too". I know men in their 80's that love it, my hubby in his 40's and 20 year olds, it's just universal.
