    Default Archetypal frags?

    Hello everyone! This is my first post, although I've been reading here for some time now.
    I have something of a strange question here.
    To explain: There are many posts where a fragrance might be recommended to an older gentleman; in other cases, a fragrance might be recommended for the younger crowd. I think it would be interesting to take that concept in a different direction. What kind of fragrance do you associate with certain types of people (as opposed to age or gender)? For example, my mental image of a firefighter or a lumberjack is not congruent with the likes of Issey Miyake or Kenneth Cole. Right? Am I going down a dark Jungian road here? I was wondering, just out of curiosity, what "fragrance archetypes" you all have.
    For a:
    Scientist?
    Soldier?
    CEO?
    Student?

    I'd be interested in your reactions.

    Lover
    and one more I forgot which one. Maybe Magician?
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    Jung's four primary archetypes were (roughly):

    The Self
    The Shadow- instinctive and irrational, but not necessarily evil
    The Anima- the feminine aspect of a man's personality
    The Animus- the masculine aspects of a woman's personality

    The other archetypes (such as mother complex) arose from these four, according to Jung.
    Of course, I am abusing Jung's system here for the sake of a thought experiment, so it hardly matters if we're scientific. How about:

    Doctor
    Mechanic
    Actor
    Librarian

    Well, that`s scientific background!
    I do not remember that`s that archetypes were Yungian, but still they were Man of War, Lover, Husband and Wisdom Man...

    I`d say that
    Doctor - is Rive Gauche pour homme (very metallic scent, as surgery steel) OR Mugler Cologne (clean and white).
    Mechanic - some Peau d`Espagne SMN - OR Paco Rabanne pour Homme OR Kouros YSL
    Actor - Ambre Sultan SL, OR Or Black Morabito (for Othello)
    Librarian - Cuir de Russie Creed
    Vetiver The Great!!!
