I often read about how much better older formulations of various fragrances were than current incarnations. Caesar's Man is one scent which is said to resemble Drakkar Noir and, indeed they are very similar, with the exception that Drakkar is like pale imitation of the Caesar's. I took up this hobby of fragrance collecting quite late and as such missed out on experiencing many of the 70s and 80s powerhouses before they were reformulated and so, often I am forced to rely on the perception and memories of others.
If this is what Drakkar used to smell like, then the vintage is a much better fragrance than the current version. Caesar's Man has a richness and an arid herbal sweetness that makes it a vastly superior and more robust fragrance that the current version of DN. it has to be one of the best buys out there, as a 4 oz bottle can be bought for under $20 and often for closer to $10.
As for the notes: I get a citrussy opening with an almost honeyed sweetness. A camphorous lavender is underpinned by a coniferous, herbal accord, which makes this a much deeper and more complex fragrance than the Drakkar (current version). I sprayed the back of one hand with Caesar's Man and the other with Drakkar Noir and the former is much stronger as time wears on. It makes Drakkar seem like Lomani pour Homme.
