PS Fine Cologne Fragrance Reviews

I like it but I don't love it. It goes on with a very "Old Spice" in your face aroma, but, then settles into a very nice bay rum, spice, sandalwood and some other wood that I cannot fathom, rose, jasmine and amber. It's slightly feminine and masculine at the same time. It has nice silage and really nice longevity. On me it is a bit too floral. Depending on what my wife is wearing, it might work to compliment, but, it could also clash.

Revised: I've changed my mind. I LOVE this scent. I've found that I can wear it to work, out of the town, out shopping or even to bed. It's pleasant and very classy. It's one of my top five scents at the moment and very inexpensive too boot.

I am a female. I went to Sams Club to do some shopping and smelled all of the testers.I said no, no, no to everything but this fragrance.I tried it on my right hand,on the big vein. That is my scent tester spot on my body.Walked around shopping for a couple of hours and decided that this smells wonderful.I told my boyfriend that I love it.Smells like wonderful spice with a little of a flowery note, no soapy or powdery undertone on me.I love Kenzo Jungle Elephant and it reminds me of that.Before we checked out I bought a bottle for my self to wear.Who cares that it is mens cologne.I totally love it.

I loved this cologne on a (male) co-worker so much that I ordered it for myself even though I'm female ;)
I have the refillable travel spray atomizer from Sephora, which I fill with any of my favorite girly perfumes, then add a spray or two of Paul Sebastian and it morphs into a custom and delicious fragrance. These mixed scents are strong at first, but after about a half an hour my "custom" perfumes are delicious and always get compliments.

i love this! this just got in from the mail as suggested by some here... i love it! very refined! it doesn't smell "old"... it really is classy... very manly... it smells sophisticated! the opening can be really strong and you can get turned off... but wait till the dry down... it's just so formal... crisp shirts and khaki, golf with friends... the oakmoss is so beautifully done that you wouldn't think that those are floral scents as it comes out in a more green-woody scent with somehow hints of leather! i also appreciate perfume that are really strong and projects insanely... my joop, my obsession by ck gets mixed reactions but this one... not even a single one reacted in a negative way. i think the "dated" issue is because some do not like oakmoss in a perfume and it reminds them hints of Brut Faberge with the metal on its neck in glass bottles... it does have some of that hints... but Faberge also gets a mixed reaction... but with this one, i was beside a teenager, an older woman, an older guy, a younger guy and a lady and nobody acted like they are offended or they make certain body movements that suggests it's suffocating them which i witness in some of my other heavy scent hitters... and for what you pay for it, you're really getting more than what you're paying for strong projection, longevity and sillage... i actually have the vintage Must de Cartier and Paul Sebastian can be lined with them in terms of the target market tjhat they are hitting... a refined and sophisticated scent for such kind of people but in their relaxed hours... the crowd that requires respect and needed to be called "sir" even if they are in their casual khaki shorts and polo shirts... however, the scent can be very good in formal attire as well. this is not the typical scent for the casual-sporty type of person who laugh and talks loudly... this scent is best for people who have a more refined decorum

A old friend of mine whom I no longer talk to, his grandfather use to wear this scent.. I saw the bottle in the bathroom and took a whiff from the cap and nearly gagged.. It is so strong, potent, and so mature and rotten smelling.. Let alone when this man use to take a bath with this fragrance to cover up his B.O. from not showering for months.. The scent was enough to knock you over and put you into a coma.. It was that bad! I do appreciate classics and mature fragrances but this one was done all wrong! I do not see how this can please any human beings nose.. It smells rancid and horrid! This does not smell like an old mans fragrance, it smells like a decomposing mans fragrance! When I look at the notes above they look so simple and pleasant that I can only wonder how those notes end up smelling like something so disgusting! I have no idea how this fragrance is still in production all over the place but yet pleasant classic mature masterpieces are discontinued and replaced with garbage.. This one should be done away with!

Update: I saw this in Khols and I wanted my friend to smell how disgusting it is so I sprayed it on paper and was shocked because it did not smell bad at all.. I was shocked but than I realized that it must have been because it was a recent reformulated version and the previous bottle must have been older and possibly off..

I actually love this perfume on me, a girl! This reminds me of my father when he used to wear Royalle "Spice" when I was little. Maybe it's just the nostalgia, but I do get compliments when I wear this.

The warmth of this cologne and its aroma makes you feel happy secure and confident. It stays a long long time, so if you spray it on the cloths i'll make you sick. You can't use it all the time. It is not that versatile. I've had compliment from ladies in their 40s more than other age range for this cologne.

Some people don't like this cologne. I don't either and I'm in the "mature" age group.I don't like it cause it's just too sweet for me. And the sweetness isn't in the direction I like. I have other colognes in my collection that have sweetness to them,that I do like and even love.

Strangely enough, recent wrist spray test seemed like a cross between Old Spice and English Leather, two frags that I grew out of a long time ago.
I'm not totally writing this off- I just might buy one if I'm on a trip, my regular fragrance got misplaced/lost, only nearby 24 hr. drugstore has a choice between Paul Sebastian, or Joop! I think you get the picture........

What a paradox!
A fragrance so common in the States and still practically unknown in Europe.
Just a week ago I received my first full 125 ml bottle of that juice - about I already read volumes. Cheap, but not vulgar. Classic, in the very good sense of the word. Not pretentious, nothing dated here. Decades before Baldessarini & Comp (men, not boys etc.), it has his message. Something linear, but the line is a straigthforward one. Just some musky flowers suitable for your skin in a ordinary day. Tender and long lasting.
And the good news is you'll always find a real man behind this aroma.
A deserved 8+/10

I absolutely LOVE this cologne on a man. My husband absolutely loves it as well. This scent is also what my Grandfather, Uncle and Cousin wear and let me tell you, I've been complimenting them for years on "wow, you smell great" but never bothered to remember the name when they told me.
I'm in Macys' one day looking at all the pretty shiny fragrances, and in my mind trying to find my family cologne. Sprayed a few and came to this one. It was all the way at the end of the row. The bottle looks cheap as hell with that gold plastic cap- can't they do better? But the glass bottle isn't bad containing that pretty golden liquid juice. I smelled the nozzle and yes, this is it!
I suppose if I didn't have a familial memory / association with this cologne that it wouldn't be so special to me. But, I do believe that this stuff is beautiful on a man. It's funny that there are no spices listed in the composition, because that is exactly the olfactory equivalent I smell. I guess it must be the musk and amber blending with the sage, lavender and florals. My husband says over and over that it smells "clean" but that's not the word that comes to my mind. It is spicy-woody-fresh.

I wore this in high school ('98 - '02) and the chicks loved it. They didn't judge it by the bottle style or reputation because they had no idea what it is. I almost never smell it when I'm out and about which is odd to me since it's so cheap and readily available. It's definitely a classic for any collection.

Oh, my gosh... this is the scrubber of all scrubbers. Normally I like retro, classic scents of projection and longevity - but this stuff is VILE.

I was going to wear it for a day but something told me to try it on my arm first. Man, I'm glad I did.

I sometimes see the phrase "old man scent" used pejoratively with stuff I like, but I'm in full agreement with applying it to this one. It has an awful hair oil vibe. Or like it was designed to mask sweat (unsuccessfully). Or the Hotel for Men lobby long ago in my hometown smelled like this. (Guys who adopted the bouffant in 1961 and never changed. C. 1944 USN tattoos. Reading the Hollywood Park tip sheet. Porn mags on the tables.) Or like the grease traps over the grill in the hamburger joint my Mom ran. Or a feral cat yet again urinated in the bushes in front of my house. Something awful.

Myrrh? Old Spice? No, a thousand times no! Those are *good* smells!

I may have a history of some kind with this; in other words, an older man I knew but didn't like from my youth smelled like this or something. It smells horribly familiar.

Oddly enough my wife didn't object to this - she just said it smelled "ordinary."

No clove in the note pyramid? I'm surprised. I get a lot of cool cloveyness in the ambery opening blast, which by all rights is fairly sharp and spicy, with some mellow orange zest to balance it out. This does not in any way smell cheap or under-developed, but the opening isn't exactly enthralling, either. In Yoda-speak: "The stuff of excitement this perfume is not."

The drydown makes me rub my chin and frown thoughtfully to myself. In a way, I do get the Old Spice associations that others have, as the powdery freshness of Shulton's (now P&G's) masterpiece is similar. But there's a bit of rosiness in there that takes me over to Burberry territory, with Brit's dry-woody smoothness feeling just as similar. Could be my distaste for Burberry has been transferred over to a positive reaction in PS Fine Cologne, and indeed this is much more to my taste, because the flowers are subdued and not nearly as synthetic. I see PS at Macy's these days, going for $60 a pop, sometimes more depending on bottle size, so someone at this brand's helm is focusing on quality and commercial exposure (or re-exposure) here. I encourage them to keep it up.

This is definitely a older mans cologne. It has a very formal scent, something you would where at a country club or cigar shop. I dont recommend for anyone under 40, but if you are older and are looking for a real sweet smell for a cheap price this is for you.

I'm sorry but I do not like this fragrance. I work in a department store and old men come in and ask for this by name, so it is obviously popular with the older crowd. To me though is just smells old, which is why my co-workers and I have dubbed this "papaw smiles".

I read some of the reviews and the "smells like an old man" did not resonate with me because I have worn this for years. Everywhere I go, women stop me to ask what am I wearing. I went to get my blood drawn and before I could sit down, the plebotomist asked me what I was wearing. I thought at first that my scent was offending her but she assured me that my scent was very sexy. Another time I was making a delivery because I am a courier, the lady asked me what I was wearing. She waited until I had completed my delivery as I was walking away from the front door. She went to get pen and paper to write down the name. Apparently my scent along with my body chemicals compliments this cologne's appeal which I have learned throughout my experience with wearing it is important. I have worn a lot of the upper scale colognes and settled on just two. PS and Drakkar. I do find myself wearing PS more because I do enjoy the scent as well..

PS Fine Cologne gets a bad rap because of its cheap price, ugly bottle and the fact that it's sold at TJMaxx by the truckload. It's not fair, because this is one of the great power scents of the Seventies.

Comparisons to Old Spice are spot on. For the first hour, PS is basically Old Spice with mind-blowing power. As it melds with your skin, the sweetness recedes a little, and some aromatic wood and floral notes pop up, adding complexity and balance. Oakmoss in the base is perfectly handled, because it adds an aromatic facet to the scent, and it balances out the sweetness of the benzoin, amber and myrrh in the base perfectly. This is one of the most comforting, well blended frags I have ever worn.

PS is super strong, macho stuff. It's an oriental for sure, but the lavender, moss and tonka bean in this gives it a burly smell reminiscent of powerhouse fougeres of the 70s like Brut and Paco Rabanne. Sillage is insanely strong and longevity is 24 hours. Talk about great value for your money!

MY RATING: 9/10

I guess I successfully avoided the supposedly powerful top notes (I have a vintage splash bottle), because this is not especially strong, though it's certainly not weak, though I didn't apply much. My first impression is a kind of "dirty," burning rubber in a powdery form. Then in perhaps half an hour that recedes and a vanillic quality comes to the fore, which is only a little sweet. At this point it's not as powdery and it's very pleasant. It's not easy to distinguish notes, though, and relative to the great "men's" fragrances of the 80s, this one is more of an amateur effort, not that there's anything "wrong" with it, especially when one thinks of the many terrible fragrances of recent years. There is a kind of basic dynamism to it, but I could understand how some may find it boring. There's clearly a floral element to it, which softens it and provides "body," and the lavender, if present, is rather tame. This is clearly for those who want an "old school" fragrance that is nicely blended (perhaps too blended), rather than one with distinct notes. I don't see a direct connection with Old Spice, other than that there are many "men's" fragrances that have at least a few things in common. Specifically, OS has a dry, patchouli and wood accord that is not present here, and it's also got anise up top, which is also missing here. Both are a bit too blended for my tastes.

PS finds a wonderful spot picked for it in casual; however, my tastes and my body chemistry work best in the evening and after dinner; therefore, as for me, PS is definitely within the formal range more for its exotic beautiful blends than for anything else.

There was a time in PS's history that was unique and as unusual as anything; actually it spoiled me rotten. My first exposure to PS was through their VSOP edition. I literally had folks following me in the stores and restaurants just to acquire the name of what I was wearing -- for their husbands. My brother even asked me what I was wearing and I told him, "Oh it's Paul Sebastian" totally forgetting the VSOP part (actually at the time I wasn't aware that PS had any other selections!)

He rang me immediately and said the difference between the two more than justified the amount they both costed. Nuff' said. I did however much the same as a wine taster scoured the earth for VSOP; to date, I have never found its proper substitute. Thank you.

A nice classic spicy oriental for men - in line with Opium for women. I just wish they would up date that cheap spray bottle the whole cap comes off when take the cap off!

I also think a women can pull this fragrance off with no problem. I also find that Paul Sebastian Design for women also shares the same ylang-ylang / musk note that PS has.

This cologne is might seem an old-fashion one, but I get more compliments than all of my other "modern" colognes. There is a trick that you must know about it though: One spray is enough. you might use two but never use more than two and make sure you don't spray it on your cloths because it lasts forever and makes you sick after 10 hours but it will be there even after 48 hours if you spray it on the cloths. So one or maximum two spray is enough and you will get a lot of compliments. When you spray a little of it, it smells very nice and is kind of flowery, but believe me it can be very rude and annoying in hot weather. Overall I put it in LIKE category.

PS Fine Cologne is a top-notch fragrance that I always get compliments on. I especially like wearing it in colder weather, but it smells good any time of year. It does indeed last, and honestly, of all the colognes I've worn, this one consistently gets me the most compliments. Truly remarkable in every way. I don't think you can go wrong with this. It's a classic spicy aroma, and one spray is sufficient. I like to compare it to an ultra-improved version of Old Spice. And I do mean -improved-. Trust me, people around you will love this. Just try it.

I love PS. It is truly an "iron fist in a velvet glove" sort of fragrance.

One spray and it's delightful....it wavers between an aromatic and an oriental fragrance with more than a touch of class and formality. It also lasts until it is washed off.

More than one spray, and those same qualities will assault and batter you. The "iron fist" comes out. This side of the cologne is cheap, loud, rude, and offensive. The sillage is measured in yards, not feet, and it won't calm down until you shower it away.

Despite it's rough side, I love this fragrance for its strength, formality, refinement and sheer class. It reminds me in turns of a classier Old Spice or Sex Appeal, and a potent aromatic like Brut (in its original form....not the new stuff). It can be very lovely, just don't take it for granted or you will pay the consequences. Consequences that can empty a crowded room faster than a fire alarm.

For the folks that say this doesn't smell dated,
you are kidding yourselves. V.S.O.P. and Brownstone,
which were also created by Paul Sebastian, are superior in every way, shape and form - more sensuous, more distinguished and much classier.
PS smells like something you'd find at a drug store!

I really really love this PS. It is one of the absolute best cologne/ scents for man I have ever smelled. I got it for my fiancé, and he really likes PS. He gets a lot of compliments. I love the Myrrh in it. The oak moss and sage keep it masculine though the ylang ylang, jasmine and rose give it that extra touch to make it a winner. Even some women love to wear it. A keeper always and forever

What an unusual one this is! I bought it untested and proceeded to try it. At first I could hardly smell anything, whereas both my wife and daughter said that they could smell it 5 feet away.

It was only after the ethanol had evaporated that I could really smell it. It is the only fragrance I have that I can truly say that it actually gets stronger after the first 5 or so minutes.

What is so impressive with this fragrance is that it is smooth and classy. Yes, it is old fashioned, but then again that is because (unlike many top-note heavy modern fragrances) it doesn't barrage you with a salvo of top notes only to reveal very little in the middle.

It is as others have said, a floral/spicy/musk fragrance. To me it is like a cross between Lagerfeld classic and Old Spice (or maybe Touch by Fred Hayman) - but I like it more than either of them.

It has great longevity and projection without having any notes that are really jarring. It's there in the background working. If it was music it would be that comfortable type that you put on while you're doing something, which doesn't make you stop and listen, but which makes whatever you are doing a whole lot more enjoyable.

The refillable bottle is also a bonus (especially for one who 'messes around' with perfume making as I do).

This scent was worn by one of my lovers in college and to this day I find it extremely sexy and multifaceted. Why else would it be the favorite fragrance of an 18 yr old (who's now 30 something), his father, my neighbors father-in-law and my 70 something Uncle Bill? Because it is so many things to so many people...

I think of it as an 80s powerhouse fragrance and applied lightly (Not like my old lover) it can be a refined mens cologne for important occasions where families are involved (Hindu grass makes my sister sneeze and my aunt say I smell like a dirty hippie!)and you want things to go and smell smoothly.

The notes listed here are pretty on (not like Catalyst for men). The sage, lavender and artemisia lead the parade and play the loudest, but the florals (albeit 80s Power powdery florals)are there (or this would be like Aramis 900) but they are caught up in the mix and I can't differentiate. Every once in a while I think I can catch a whiff of ylang-ylang. The incensy base of amber and pathchouli (DARK) finish in a dry and not too sweet moss and vanilla.

What is not to like? Herbs, flowers and incense...maybe I partook too much in the 80s (and 90s) but I think this is a keeper. Where else can you find a four oz. bottle of cologne AND aftershave splash with a 2.5 oz FINE deoderant for 20 bucks or under? God Bless America and Paul Sebastian (wherever those two are.)

Sillage: HELL yes, no mistakin it
Longevity: til the cows come home
Overall: 3.25/5

So it's cheap, so it's loud so it goes on and on, so do some of my best friends and I'm sure some of yours..do you love 'em any less?! There are some frags that cost a hell of a lot more and don't last half as long that are gone now so it has j'nais ce cua (sp?) and feels like nothing else I know of. THAT is what a SIGNATURE scent SHOULD BE!!!

Curious is absolutely right, First, it is a cheaper clone of Zizanie by Fragonard, but its lower price makes it a better buy than Zizanie. Second, the notes listed by Fragrantica are all wrong, I agree with Curious' notes but I'll add a touch of vanilla at the drydown that persists all throughout the basenotes.
Not a spectacular cologne, but is is worth its price and more.

Take this from a guy who knows that ladies think that Paul Sebastian is delicious and very sexy. It lasts for a very long time and smells very very good. It is one of the top 3 colognes you can add to your arsenal. Drakkar Noir is another. See the thing with Paul Sebastian is that you can wear it for any occasion and you will get tons of compliments from beautiful women and women that are not so beautiful too. It's all positive attention as far as I'm concerned. The fact that ladies will chase you around and go crazy over this cologne can be used to your advantage. The same thing happens when you wear Drakkar Noir. This is very true and high end advice. I've spend thousands of dollars to figure this out so you don't have to. Save your money and buy the right stuff. Paul Sebastian and Drakkar Noir are very masculine, macho, sexy men's colognes and they are better then 99% of the other stuff out there.

I don't know why this is so popular maybe for its price, but that's what it really is a cheap perfume. I think any dish soap smells better than this.

Sorry PS

Good points:
-Interesting
-Unique
-Strong
-Lasts long
-noticable silage
-suits different occasions
-cheap price
-Great looking (refillable) bottle design

Bad points:
-None really, It's quite a unique and bold fragrance & because of that I found it not 100% easy to get along with at first, maybe due to the Myrrh note, I dunno, whatever gives it the sweet herbal minty kind of freshness (although sometimes I don't always notice it as much). Longevity is good for me, but it does vary, sometimes it'll last many hours then others it'll seem to last not so long, and have more of an average 5 hour ish fragrance length. It almost seems like the strength of the fragrance in the bottle has diminished over the period of only a few months? but i dunno. I don't love every single aspect of the fragrance, but overall I think it's pretty special

Paul Sebastian Inc. was born in 1979 from a scheme dreamed up by two New Jersey natives named Leonard Paul Cuozzo and Alan Sebastian Greco – the name of the company was created for using their middle names. Cuozzo had become interested in developing fragrances after living near the International Flavors & Fragrances plant in Union Beach. He paired his budding skills as a perfumist with the business expertise of his friend, Greco, who was working as a national sales manager for Textron at the time. The pair bottled their first cologne - a concoction Cuozzo had been tinkering with for twelve years with New York perfumer Fritzsche Dodge - and sold it to three New Jersey men’s clothing stores. It was so successful that within two years the business had expanded to over 300 stores and was grossing over $200,000 a year. Despite its roaring success in the coming decades, Paul Sebastian was considered unorthodox for the fact that it did virtually no national advertising. Instead, it focused its resources on the company’s relationship with their distributors, which remained by and large specialty stores. However, the company is also famous for its innovations with the “gift with purchase” concept. Beginning with teddy bears in 1983, fine porcelain pieces to match their fragrances soon became the company trademark. In 1989 the company went international
Today, the original Paul Sebastian Inc. is no more. In 1999 its primary assets and rights were sold to FFI Fragrances (Elizabeth Arden Fragrances), including Paul Sebastian Fine Cologne, Design, and Casual. Their launch fragrance, which is still sold today, is called PS Fine Cologne, a mixture of subtle spices, sweet florals and citrus, with rich undertones of soft woods and musk released in 1980.

PS by Paul Sebastian is a very formal fragrance, shirt and tie required. There is a little Lavender-Citrus in the opening that fades quickly. It goes almost directly to a spicy (Sage, Armoise [aka Mugwort]) and floral (Ylang-Ylang, Jasmine and Rose) scent in the heart. The Myrrh shines through right from the start and is the main reason this scent is so formal. It's the most formal scent I have.

It starts out quite strong, but not harsh. It's not a Rose dominant scent, it's more spicy. The Rose only contributes to the overall floral accord. It is dominated by the Myrrh, and that is what gives it class. The spicy-floral heart hangs on for hours, then the base slowly moves in, adding Sandal, Patchouli, and Vanilla as it dries down. I don't get any Musk, it is a supporting note only. The Myrrh hangs on for the life of the fragrance. If you don't like Myrrh, you will not like PS.

Sillage and longevity are average, 4 to 5 hours on me. A very good fragrance.
