Comme des Garçons EdP
Thread: Artsy fragrance
You are about to host and appear at your very first art exhibit (casual venue). Which fragrance would you choose to wear?

"Wovon man nicht lesen kann, darüber muss man schreiben."
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.
"He is a very shallow critic who cannot see an eternal rebel in the heart of a conservative."-- G.K. Chesterton
This calls for a daring fragrance such as Yatagan by Caron.

Something interesting yet subtle
"Whereof one cannot speak, one must remain silent thereof." --Wittgenstein
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

"I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical...It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." - Thomas Jefferson
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.

Le 3e homme de Caron! (third man)
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.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
Casual you say? What about...
Current top 5:
1. Amouage Opus VII 2. Amouage Fate Man 3. Nasomatto Black Afgano 4. Creed Spice & Wood 5. Bond 9 Harrods Oud
Casual, eh? Well, I'm a musician, so what do I know? My pick is Hanae Mori. [smiley=smiley.gif]
I think any of the D'Orsay fragrances would fit in nicely with the art scene.
Why not wear a work of (olfactory) art?
Silver Mountain Water
André Putnam Preparation Parfumeé. Haven't smelled it, but artsy people all over the world crap their pants talking about Putnam.
Great suggestions! Thanks
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.
