I had one in my shopping cart online today and did not pull the trigger yet..


Any opinion on which one to get?
Also, there is a 750ml Brut Eau de Cologne. Which is economically possible but I doubt the scent will be lasting and pleasant at the same time...

Brut is a french equivalent of Aqua Velva, it's basic AS. Scents are not extraordinary, the original green is "fougère" inspired, orange = musk, blue = ocean/cold scent.
Sincerlly, Aqua Velva is more interesting (if you compare to the blue), and the green + orange have strong scent. 
I think, with Myrsol , you have certainely better ... and closer.

I had a cousin that wore it all the time, he rarely wore any other fragrance, his jumpsuits were made of gaberdine and couldn't be washed so he poured Brut on them after a show. Hw was the guy who wiggled his hips a lot  Cool

Is this the same Brut that was Brut 33 back in the 70's?  I was a kid in the 70's(I know I'm getting old Biggrin ) but I remember the old green Brut 33 bottles.

I was born in the mid 70's and remember Brut 33 advertising, not scent as I never wore it or knew anyone that did. I purchased it just for fun!

EDIT: 

I just took a whiff and splashed some on my face - really wish I hadn't as I'm wearing Tom Ford London. 

The scent is not at all sophisticated, but looking back neither were the 70's and 80's. 

I'm off to shower...

Judging from the "I'm off to shower..." I'd say he didn't like it at all Biggrin

Brut! Reminds me of my first band director when I was in junior high. He wore the stuff every day. I like it, but my wife will draw up divorce papers if I wear it. From what I've heard, people either love it or hate it; there's very little middle ground. Good luck!

My dad, 76, used to wear Brut 33 and Old Spice in the 60's, 70's and 80's.  Good stuff!!

Brut is now owned by at least three different companies, Unilever in Europe/Asia/Africa/South America. Pharmacare in Australia, and Helen of Troy in North America.
I have seen Brut shaving creams from Brazil and India. I haven't seen an Indian Brut, but most companies licensed their products in India as P&G/Shulton did with Old Spice.

Unilever still control the product in South Africa, which is unusual as South Africa usually has it's own versions as Australia does with Brut due to companies leaving the market in the 1970's.

I was looking in a box of A/S that were my Father in Laws. I found a bottle of Brut, about half full in the glass bottle.

Every time I catch a whiff of Brut I'm transported back to my first week at the University. Seemed like the entire dorm was rockin that elixir!
