    Default Artsy fragrance

    You are about to host and appear at your very first art exhibit (casual venue). Which fragrance would you choose to wear?

    What timing!!!

    I just went to a friend's gallery for an art show,

    The paintings were crap...but my friend owns the gallery.

    Also i was way overdressed- Armani 80's vintage coke dealer's jacket (hoo-ha), CK patched jeans and Camper Pelotas...Meanwhile everyone else was mostly over 50 and it was a disheartening melee of pastels

    anyway I was considering CdG 2 Edp but went with Synthetic Series 6 Skai- the most artsy fragrance I have!!! * * a total success.

    This calls for a daring fragrance such as Yatagan by Caron.

    I'm not sure which one i would pick,but here are my top choices.

    1) something by CdG - probably CdG 2 EDP
    2) another vote for L'Anarchiste
    3) SMN - Nostalgia

    When an artist, wear an artist: Salvador Dali (Laguna Homme would be my choice although the eponymous one would be good too). Of course, there is that Andy Warhol fragrance too...

    Anything by Christopher "I Hate Perfume" Brosius should be artsy fartsy enough.

    L'Artisan Parfumeur's Santal for me. I might wear some CdG if I were going to someone else's opening, but if it were my opening I would wear something very very friendly and comforting, thus the Santal. I'd try to be approachable, and let the art do the artsy talking. With a calm, soothing, and very rare beauty like Santal I'm sure I'd make everyone take me for a friend who's success they'd want to see happen and play a role in bringing about.

    I second the CdG suggestions, especially CdG 2 Man, Odeur 71 or Kyoto. Another good choice would be Czech&Speake 88.

    I think any of the D'Orsay fragrances would fit in nicely with the art scene.

    It depends on the art.

    If you want the "shock of the new..." why not try Odeur 71 or 53?

    None - let the work sell itself (although a deoderant is important - CDG 2 Man is a personal favorite and will be worn to my own opening this weekend). Low-key IS the key. Have fun, good luck, and congrats.
