I actually think it does... buuuuuuuuut ...the answer will vary from person to person.
Wearing something that smells too upscale can come off as snobbish. It has nothing to do with the price of the scent though. Interlude Man by Amouage costs $280 a bottle. GIT can be had for closer to half of that price. I have samples of each and have been told by pretty much every one of my friends (not perfume heads, btw) that GIT smells either snobbish or conservative and that Interlude Man smells playful or weird, but in a good way. Keep in mind, I live in a very urban downtown and my friends are city dwellers too. Back when I lived in the deep south, GIT would have probably been a big hit there since folks tend to be conservative, and Interlude Man would have been miles over the top.
So... the answer to the original question is, you have to know your audience
. For me, the answer is GIT. I don't think it smells snobbish, but I totally understand why my friends think it does.
