    Default What is your signature scent?

    Maybe your favorite maybe not but the scent people associate with you?



    Mine is Giorgio for Men by Giorgio Beverly Hills,my favorite also.

    Hardly anyone here has anything remotely close to a signature scent. When shit hits the fan, I almost always wear Geir, so it's closer than anything else to a sig scent, but it's still very far from a sig becuase I wear it at the most once per week and I don't know of anyone who associates it with me.

    Right now, honestly, none. I used to have signature scents - for a while Angel, for a while Dreamer, then Gucci PH, but since finding this site I have rotated frags so often I'm pretty sure no one could associate one scent with me anymore. I like the variety, but I also miss having that one scent that tells people I have arrived. For now, variety wins.

    I have to agree with The_Giraffe and robyogi. I also cannot claim to have a signature scent, because I have so many fragrances that I love to wear and also so many that I want to wear as a test.

    This is a good question. I always say that my "signature" scent is CK Be, because it's my fallback scent. I wear it for every occasion or when I can't decide what to wear. However, by your description, the scent people probably associate w/ me is Kenneth Cole Reaction. I always get complimented on this and asked what it is. Bulgari Black is another one I frequently get asked about.

    I also wear a different scent everyday, rotating like most folks on basenotes. However, the fragrance that I'm truly enamored with, the one that I would wear if I could choose only one, would be Bois D'Argent. I just love the buttery, honey notes and the fact that it lasts from sunup to sundown.

    I really think that's the wrong sort of question to ask on a fragrance junkie forum...

    I have, at last count, 53 bottles of fragrance. I have a hard time working my way through them faster than the urge to buy them... Maybe, once I've used them up/given them away/sold some, I'll have a final group of 3-5 favorites. Maybe I'll have 30-50 and make sure my corpse is buried with my bottles. Who knows? :P

    It was Helmut Lang - Curion a few years ago. Now everything is in too heavy circulation to become singatures. My girlfriend always hugs me extra tight when I wear Eau des Merveilles, because it is more me than anything else I have according to her. I've also said numerous times that I'd like to force Daim Blond to become my signature, and I got my first bottle yesterday so I guess it is time...

    Years ago, I wore signature scents - Old Spice (multiple times), Obsession for Men, Habit Rouge, Pierre Cardin, Canoe (the last signature scent I wore), Pi, Halston Z-14.

    But it's impossible to do so. In the past, each signature scent gave way tom another, so I just bought all the scents I like and rotate them.

    The closest thing I have to a signature is Dior Homme. I kind of forced it to become my signature after frequent wearing in the winter. However, after trying Egoiste (which I still have yet to acquire), I might have found a new potential for a signature.

    My heaviest rotation scents are:
    YSL Kouros
    YSL M7
    Azzaro Visit
    Chanel Antaeus

    I rotate enough so that I don't think people really associate a certain scent with me, but if they did it would probably be one of the above. I know that my girlfriend associates me most with M7.

    I like and wear many, many scents, but when it's crunch time, good ol' patchouli in some form or other. I love it and would never be without it. I've experimented with so many brands, known and unknown, that I couldn't begin to say how many "variations on a theme" I've tried. All time favorites must include Mazzolari's excellent version, Etro's easily wearable patch, and a relative newcomer, Patchouli Noir Osmo from Il Profumo.

    I first discovered Geir last September when a fellow basenoter by the name of Milamber highly recommended it to me. Knowing my tastes in scents, he insisted that I buy it blind. It was the greatest fragrance purchase I've ever made to this day. At the time, it was not well known on Basenotes until more and more people started mentioning it in threads. I admit I was one of the guilty ones who would rant about this scent day and night while recommending it to everyone. Up to now it is still my holy grail.

    Like most of you I too like a variety -- but my scents that would be considered signature by my friends would be Kouros, Escada PH, Azzaro PH and Cool Water. Guerlain Vetiver, Envy, Allure and Dreamer are getting more playing time too. Now if I ony had Geir, BDP....

    While I don't usually wear one scent more often than many others, I'd have to say that my 'signature' scent would be Kouros. I don't wear Kouros very often (it's part of my rotation, though), but it's the one scent that my GF both recognizes and knows by name. Why that is, I don't know.
    I think she went through the same stages of Kouros acceptance as many Basenoters:

    1- Denial (Kouros can't be good!)
    2- Anger (I hate Kouros for being so popular!)
    3- Bargaining (OK, I'll buy a bottle just so people can't say that I'm being stubborn)
    4- Depression (How am I going to explain my change of heart?)
    5- Acceptance (I like Kouros, and that's ok.)

    I did a quick search for "signature scent" and it looks like we haven't talked about this for about fifteen months. Like many of the people in this thread, I started out trying to replace my signature scent of more than twenty years [Giorgio for Men - Giorgio Beverly Hills which, coincidentally, is the same fragrance that started MY_2_Scents, the originator of this thread, on his quest. Thanks for leading the way! ].

    As I get further into my journey, I have found a few fragrances that I really enjoy and think smell absolutely wonderful on me. I don't have a rotation but I find that I am reaching for these on a regular basis:

    Hermes - Equipage
    Guerlain - Heritage
    Chanel - Pour Monsieur (1955)
    Chanel - Egoiste
    Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    Caron - Yatagan
    Azzaro - Azzaro pour Homme
    Estee Lauder - Lauder for Men

    So, do you have or even want a signature scent? What fragrances do you reach for on a regular basis? How have your thoughts evolved since this was last discussed?

    My fist signature scent (about 30 years ago) was Oleg Cassini. I wasn't really into fragrances throughout most of my twenties and all of my thirties. Oh, the wasted years! Then I got a little men's cologne sampler box from Caswell-Massey and discovered the joy of samples. My signature scent then became Jockey Club, which I still wear, but not not regularly. Now, I wear so many different scents that people just associate me with smelling good, but not with a particular scent. In the past year, I'd say the ones I've worn the most are: Yerbamate, Bigelow Bay Rum, Yatagan, LV Vetiver, Floris Santal, and Royal English Leather.

    The very idea of a "signature scent" for me, though attractive in theory, is quite impossible to achieve.
    If I could afford it, I would ask an acclaimed "nose" to create the PERFECT scent for me, but after several months/years wear... what next?

    There are scents however that I adore and will attempt never to be without. At this time, the now discontinued "love Potion No.9 for Men" by Penhaligons comes close.
    I cant say its a "signature" for me however, as I seldom wear it often enough for people to make an immediate association with me.

    Post Re: What is your signature scent?

    Some 15 months have passed, and if I would have a signature scent, it would still be Divine's L'Homme de Coeur. I wear LV Uomo more than anything, but somehow feel the Divine scent reflects my personality. I would have not believed that I ever say that. I feel dirty.

    I have very few scents at a given time, mostly for financial reasons. So there is no 'big circulation'.
    The best scent however I've come across during my several years of scent-hunting is Green Irish Tweed. Luckily now I have a bottle - let's say it is.

I have many other fragrances 75+, but I only wear them on certian occasions.

    I'll edit my opinion from well over a year ago . I still wear CK be & KC Reaction quite a bit...but neither qualify as a "signature scent" anymore. Black, on the other hand, is still pretty close to a signature scent for me.

    However...there is one scent, that my friends know by name, that I've even gotten quite a few of my friends to start wearing because of it's universal (and unisex) appeal...& that's Clinique Happy for men.

    After thinking this over a bit, my answer (today) is Chanel no 19. I wore it comfortably at 17 and nearly three decades later and three children later, it simply melds with my skin and I feel very happy in it most any time. We have history.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue.

    I remember reading through this thread when it was first posted, and I could have sworn I posted in it already too, but I guess not.

    My current go-to when other else appeals is 212 Men. I think of it as a signature, but as no one in my life seems to notice I'm wearing fragrance, it's hard to imagine other people pegging it as my "signature".

    Now that it's coming on wintertime, though... that bottle of M7 is calling, but maybe this is too much for every day.
