• Brief by yepyep

    The first fragrance with rum and cola in it, to my knowledge. It would be somewhat peachy, but in a masculine way, with a black background note. Smooth Cedar, Rum and Cola, and subtle Pimento Berry, these would be some of the key notes of this fragrance. This cologne was inspired by a Hollywood icon, a cool charmer in a pair of dark shades. This cologne would be worn by men.

    Here are some notes to play around with, notes can be subtracted or added at the perfumer's leisure:
    Bergamot
    Mandarin
    Very Subtle Peach
    Subtle Patchouli
    Vetiver
    Jasmine
    Geranium
    Subtle Cardamom
    Smooth Cedar
    Amber
    Tonka
    Musk
    Suede
    Rum
    Cola
    Subtle Pimento Berry

      Sounds like vintage Tabu, lol

      Joking aside, a quality fragrance, inspired by the long-gone vintage (but updated for today's tastes) could be marvelous.

      I am EXTREMELY curious which Hollywood icon you were thinking of! I have my ideas, but if it's anybody in particular, would love to know.....

      It must always remain secret, but he's been charming audiences for decades, he defines cool, and his shades are dark, dark black.

      I think that if an untitled brief wins, it should be given a name either by a collective effort by Basenotes members or the perfumers who are working on it, or both, what do you guys think?

      I was wondering about this. In some cases, there is a name, and maybe it's good or essential, but maybe it's not, or there is a conflict. In other cases, there is no name already. I don't know what will happen, but perhaps a collective naming would be a fun and desirable thing. I can certainly see it. Ultimately, I think that's Grant & Dani's call, but it could be a lot of fun for most members. Commenting on the briefs has not been a huge draw of interest yet - and perhaps that's not a bad thing, since it frees the powers that be to do what they think is right, and not what might seem to be popular. But I agree - community involvement of any kind is great, because that "crowd" aspect is getting a lot of attention for the site - very good for Basenotes.
