Thread: 3 Staple Scents

  1. #1

    Default 3 Staple Scents

    Hey guys,

    Much appreciation on my "clean scent" thread, it has actually opened my visibility to Gendarme. To which i have two questions:

    I have three scents that i switch on/off, based on the message/mood. If you had three scents to cover the following three categories what would they be:

    1. All Purpose - your default or sig scent (Mine is GIT)
    2. Power Play - when you want to kick in the doors and exude your confidence (Mine is Douro/Lords Penhaligons)
    3. Scent the Girls love - need i say more (1903 J. Peterman, go figure! every woman who i put a lineup together of scents always loves this the best)

    Regards,
    Nate

    Thanks for moving this one up again for the newer Basenoters. I love this thread.

    All Purpose: Silver Mountain Water, Guerlain Vetiver
    Power Play: Route de Vetiver, Envy
    Romantic: Carnal Flower, Chergui

    I have yet to present this stuff to a non-aficianado who doesn't react with an "mmm, that's really nice" to SMW and Guerlain Vetiver is just classic. I can't think of anything more powerful and awe-inspiring than Route de Vetiver, though I can understand how some might find it too much. The first few times I sniffed it, I thought it was vile. Now I can't imagine living without it. My decant is about to run dry and I'm going to have to get a bottle. Envy just has a luxurious and in-control air about it.
    Carnal Flower and Chergui are both beauty in a bottle to me, and that's enough to make them romantic to me.
