A Captain Whose Earned Its Many Followers...
*This is a review of the vintage Captain by Molyneux.

Captain (vintage) opens with an amazing blast of oakmoss and lavender with natural lemon support before the lemon gradually recedes as the scent enters its heart phase. In the early heart, the lemon is now replaced by a dry tobacco leaf that co-stars with the still very strong lavender and oakmoss, supported by nutmeg and rosemary spice, pine and slightly dirty patchouli rising from the base. The overall accord comes off as somewhat soapy, aromatic and spicy, but very complex while being perfectly balanced and smooth blended. During the dry-down the tobacco and lavender both fade as just ever-so slightly sweet sandalwood emerges to replace it with the oakmoss and spice remaining through the end. Projection is average and so is longevity.

Let's get right to it, Captain (vintage) is my kind of scent through and through. The outstanding soapy oakmoss utilized in the scent that jumps right out at you from the moment you spray it on is just heavenly smelling and you won't be able to find any scent currently on the market that can replicate or approximate it. When coupled with the aromatic lavender, pine and spice-laced dry tobacco this has got masculine powerhouse written all over it; but while Captain (vintage) follows the formula you would expect from the best of the classic powerhouse scents of the 70s and 80s it is also quite well-behaved and really isn't one. Despite its powerhouse ingredient characteristics one would have no issue wearing Captain (vintage) to the office as it is not obnoxious or loud at all while being a real confidence builder. If you can get your hands on a discontinued vintage bottle of "the good stuff" in its admittedly unimpressive housing, the juice contained within is the exact opposite, earning a very strong 5 stars out of 5 and a strong buy recommendation.

Note: There is a re-issue of Captain still in production housed in a modern looking bottle that is a completely different smelling scent than the vintage stuff described here and is not recommended.
