Anyone else love this stuff??
I have the fondest memories of this fragrance. Something about it takes me back and I think of wanting to be grown before my time. It is still a beautiful scent to me. The leather undertones and the aldehydes are a great combo in this. The new formulation is definitely different, but it’s still close enough for me to love it. I think it works anytime other than the heat of summer. The leather and wood notes ground it for the cool weather and the citruses and florals are bright enough for spring. All in all I still love it. Not sure how much of that is nostalgia and how much is actually the fragrance. Please reply if you love this fragrance or also have fond memories of this one. I’m a newbie here but look forward to being a part of the community!!

Do you like this?
If you like this scent I recomend you to try Tsar by Van Cleef & Arpels. They share a lot of notes. Very similar but Tsar is way stronger. To me this just wins on the bottle design category. Tsar gets the award.

90's is here.
Amazing stuff that has the 90's DNA. Smells mature and classic, with average lasting power and excellent sillage. More suitable for > 25 years.

Lots of aldehydes with lavender over a woody/leathery base.

I guess the vintage wasnt so chemical smelling as the latest i bought (2012). The latest one is very synthetic and chemical.

A Mundane Synthetic Aldehyde Safari...
Safari for Men opens with a chemical aldehyde onslaught with bergamot support. The aldehydes begin to recede as a very strong lavender note takes the fore and nearly drown out the rest of the notes with only oakmoss and leather from the base able to push past the lavender to make themselves known. As the lavender very slowly dissipates, the oakmoss and leather base notes grow stronger, combining with patchouli, amber and faux sandalwood through the dry-down. Projection is excellent, as is longevity.

I seem to be in the distinct minority, but I have owned Safari for Men for many years and even now just can't "get" it. The aldehydes are tough to take early on, and the lavender is just way too strong for my tastes. Couple all this with the overall synthetic smelling nature of the scent from top to bottom and you have a 2 stars out of 5 poor release from Ralph Lauren. My vintage bottle is going to wind up with a friend who might be able to appreciate this one more than I.
