    Default What to wear on rainy days?

    Hi, I'm a new member here. *I've been coming in and out on this web site for a few months now. *These are all I have at the moment:

    1. Gucci Envy
    2. Bvlgari pour homme EXTREME
    3. BLV pour homme
    4. Azzaro Chrome
    5. Azzaro Silver Black (ONYX)
    6. XS Black
    7. Incanto pour homme
    8. Subtil
    9. Kenneth Cole Reaction
    10. Joop!
    11. Dunhill X-Centric
    12. 212 Men
    13. CHIC
    14. Davidoff Cool Water Deep (sea, scents and sun LIMITED EDITION)
    15. Dolce & Gabbana pour homme
    16. Nino Cerruti 1881 AMBER
    17. Aramis Life
    18. DKNY for men
    19. Burberry BRIT
    20. CK BE
    21. FCUK
    22. KenzoAir
    23. l'eau par Kenzo
    24. Versace Blue Jeans
    25. Tommy (1994)
    26. Hoggar (Yves Rocher)
    27. Transat (Yves Rocher)
    28. Eryo Blue (Yves Rocher)
    29. Samba Natural Man
    30. Farenheit
    31. Polo Sport
    32. White Musk (Body Shop)


    I always have problem choosing which one to wear each day. *Guess I have too many. *The weather here is very warm so for the day wear it's easy as I always pick Azzaro Chrome, l'eau par kenzo, Transat, CK BE, and CHIC.

    But on a rainy day I really cannot choose a proper one. *What do you think?

    P.S. Gucci Envy & BVL pour homme really work for a hot date! *D & G is for next try! * * *

    1. Creed Aventus

    Hey Kiat, I'm a new member as well. For some reason when it rained, I would use Chrome. Maybe because I correlate Chrome with soapy cleanliness, the rain is your shower. Too bad Macy's, etc got a hold of this scent, now it's mainstream to the core.

    LOL! Me too!! I always think of rainy days every time I wear DKNY Men, IMO it is PERFECT for rainy days. It is somewhat musky while keeping the pleasant tangerine leaves at the top-mid notes.

    It's not on your list but you should really try out L'Artisan Voleur de Roses or Ungaro III. Then there's Guerlain Mitsouko. That works too but better for just overcast days..

    I love fougeres on a rainy day. Consider those that are fougeres on your list to wear.

    I also want to add a positive comment on the variety of your scent styles!

    Last, but not least, welcome to the forum on your first post!

    I was planning on Burberry Brit today, but then it started raining. Now it is snowing. :-?

    Not sure which one from your list, as I'm not familiar with most of them. But, on rainy days, I like my scent to be congruent with the mood of the weather. Most of the time when it rains I like something that makes me feel pensive, introspective, and calm, like Lutens Vetyver Oriental or something like Villoresi's Musk, or even Voleur de Roses or no. 88.

    I'd imagine you could also take the other route and wear something that is uplifting and bright, to counteract the effects of the weather.

    Wonder which approach most people here take to rain?

    Took the words right out of my mouth... oh, it must have been while you were....nevermind.

    I second that. It is my all time favorite Ishy day frag. I think that Envy comes in a close second place though...

    YEah I know, but usually the VdR hordes come out so fast when rainy day scents are discussed (I do agree though)

    Thanks for great recommendations. *However, some stuffs you recommend cannot be found here, and it's not a wise way to purchase it from the web sites (from USA or UK) as there is an import tax charged at my end.

    By the way, yes, I think DKNY works for rainy days as the top note is fresh like a cool breeze of the rain.

    Once again it's interesting to see how people have different associations and take different approaches to choosing fragrances according to the environment. Some choose fragrances that "evoke" a rainy day; others choose fragrances that induce a mood they find appropriate to rainy days; still others try to "counteract" the weather. I suppose I'm in the last of these 3 camps: for cold, wet days I think of warm, dry fragrances. I suppose I would think of rain differently if I lived in the tropics.

    From your list, for some reason I wear Burberry Brit when it's a chilly rain. Chrome sounds good for a more warmer rain. But you can NEVER go wrong w/ CK Be!!!!!!!!!

    God, I wish I lived someplace where it rained in the winter! If I did, then I'd wear Tea for Two, most certainly. Hate to be so unoriginal, but there it is.

    today was a day at work and chose guerlain-insense...it worked perfectly for me today as its a rainy day here in rhode island and not hot at all...probably the first time that i felt the connection between a scent and the weather really..the frag was mellow..not overpowering and lasted all day...a solid green in a fresh-cut-buncha-flowers-but-still-masculine-kinda way...

    Voleur de Roses or Ungaro III.
