Or is it something about sweet, gourmand notes, specifically?
Personally, I would much rather wear something like Terre d'Hermes, Live Jazz, Declaration, or something along those lines to a club, so as not to suffocate myself. If this has already been discussed, I'm sorry...I don't usually read clubbing threads.
For clubbing I have used everything you can see in my wardrobe.
YSL's l'Homme, Terre d'Hermes, Rive Gauche, Solo Loewe, ....
My experience is that it doesn't matter how much you apply with these ones.
They will fade and you won't get noticed because of the smoke.
The only fragrance I use now for clubbing is Tauer's LdDM.
Dior Homme Intense, which I bought recently, will be my second choice.
All the rest in my wardrobe is absolutely not good for clubbing.
So the first reason is projection and the ability to cut through everything.
But there is a second reason, for me at least.
Girls love sweet desserts. Especially chocolat. In an edible form, that is.
So I guess it's a good reason to smell like that.
There is also something naughty about eating those ultra sweet sugary desserts, because they are fattening. If a girl connects that feeling of naughtiness to a certain guy...
In general, smelling sweet is something sensual and erotic, it's daring, it shows that you have confidence. Those are all the things you want when you go clubbing.
