Hi,
     What are some timeless classic men's aftershave's and cologne's from the 1930's (what I'm mainly and mostly interested in), but also some from the 1920's, 1910's and older (these, I have only a casual, passing interest in, secondarily)?
Thank you

Floris 89 is from 1951.
Acqua di Selva I believe is from 1949.
I think some of the Creeds are too young also?

Agreed some borderline datelines but yet associated with giants of the era

Mont st Michel. Cheap and classic but not super-easy to find outside of France.
All six scents launched in the 1920's I believe.

And I just thought of another:
The Spanish Floid after-shave (one of my favorites) was originally launched in 1932 so that's smack bang in the decade the OP is after. Originally by the house of Haugron now by Revlon.

+++ Three versions currently stocked by Fendrihan's in a tall 250ml glass bottle for $22.50.  The ingredient list shows PEG-40 castor oil, unusual for a cologne but IMO makes it useful as a aftershave/cologne.  Love the amber scent for fall/winter.

I dunno, I can easily see Hemingway wearing it. He went to Spain in 1937 in support of the republican side so he would have had the opportunity. 
Surely, if there ever was "un hombre de verdad" it was Ernest.
