    I've identified myself with Égoïste since the mid-90s.
    It's so deeply grown into my personality, that it's hard
    for me to call any other fragrance my 'signature scent'.
    But, recently, very recently, it has gotten some severe
    competition from Sycomore.

    If you define it this way....I have none.

    However, if you define it (as I do) as one that gets worn 3 or 4 to 1 over all your other scents for my it is Montale Red Vetyver. Just love it and unlike my #1 and #2 I can't really find a situation that I don't at least like it, if not love it.

    Also, my only scent I can wear 3 days in a row without growing tired of it.
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    I think one should use the word signature scents and not the singular version of it. I mean, we use multiple scents to express ourself, and my scents are also dependent on whether its winter or summer. When its summer, i tend use a lighter and more fresh scents and the opposite when its winter.

    Im waiting for my L'instant edp, and im quite certain that for the next month it will be my most used perfume. And summer im most likely gonna use a Annick Goutal perfume, either eud de sud, hadrien or mandragore.

    I've come to accept that I have too many fragrances to have a signature scent now, although I can understand the appeal of having one. Before I started collecting, mine was Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme. I liked that people smelt that and thought of me. That people smelt that and thought of it as "my smell". I wish I could have a signature scent again sometimes, but it's never gonna happen again now!

    The closest thing for me currently is Creed Aventus, which I wear once a week, the most frequently of anything I own. I rotate very heavily with no rhyme or reason. I have worn Aventus for several Fridays in a row now.

    All-time is Green Irish Tweed. No doubt I've worn it more often than any other scent in my life.

    None to be honest since I have about 850 masculine fragrances to enjoy. I can't recall when was the last time I wore the same scent for 2 days in a roll. And I doubt if I'd ever have a signature fragrance. I feel that most Basenoters are in the same situation.

    Me too! I do think this is a great office scent, just enough "Don't f*uck with me" to satisfy. I am even reaching for it more than Creed MI for those moments I need to make a good impression.

    I own and enjoy quite a few, but the only two I'd call "signature" for me are Aramis and Silver Mountain Water. I wore Aramis for so many years, that I've taken a break from it recently. But it's always there, and always will be.

    I can and usually do wear Eau Sauvage every day without getting tired of it, so I suppose this. I don't quite see it as a signature scent, though, since not a deliberate choice so much as a convenient availment. But others would, if they noticed at all, probably associate it with me.

    No current signature scent - rather, if I may say so, a sort of a "signature rotation", consisting of a minimum of 6-7 different scents (while the upper limit might be a few dozens or even hundreds, in an extremely daring scenario), between which I alternate, without much allowing exceptions from this generally established pattern

    ^Interesting thought Ken - Signature Rotation. While reading through this thread, I was thinking about how I would respond, and then I saw your response and really identified with that.

    In the past two years I've accumulated a handful of bottles and dozens of decants, so like most I rotate a lot and rarely wear something more than 1-2 days in a row.

    I have found recently that I have narrowed down to wearing around 5 of them a lot more often than all the others. Those are Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche, Bvlgari Aqva, Bleu de Chanel, Creed Erolfa, and Creed Silver Mountain Water (with 2-3 others just on the outside of that top 5).

    If I absolutely had to pick one of them to be my signature at this moment, the one that defines me, it would be Edition Blanche.

    I think the signature perfume is the perfume that you look at it with total respect, handle it's bottle with deep love and caring and apply it with joy, for me that perfume is Memoire d'Homme by Nina Ricci and has been since the very first time it was released.

    I'm polygamous in terms of colognes but if I had to choose one of my fragrances as a signature scent right now I'd probably go with Bvlgari Pour Homme Extrême.

    To be of note, D&G Pour Homme has been my signature scent for quite a long time.

    Mine change so frequently. For that reason, I'd agree with Ken_Russell's idea above: "The signature rotation." Today, I'd say its Cartier Roadster, and that I hope to use this the most often in the near future. But in the past few months its been SMW, Ferragamo F Black, VIW, Gucci Pour Homme II, Agua de Loewe, LLaM Eau Fraiche, Bleecker Street...yea, you get the idea. I have signature scent phases...and those phases seem to move rather quickly although I wish they didn't...

    My husband wore Green Irish Tweed, but he really likes Geraniums Pour Monsieur now. It suits him, since the toothpaste smell disappears quickly on him. It goes from lemon to Jagermeister to cedar. I still prefer GIT, and he has a bottle of that. No GPM yet.

    Vetiver Tonka has been the scent that my friends (and lovers) would associate to me for the last few years... I generally use my "signature" scent in occasions where I want the other person to notice it and remember it, rather than wearing it everyday. Still, I kind of keep the same notes in my everyday scent: I love vetiver, and often wear vetiver oriented colognes.

    I'm in the process of making a small collection of my signature "type" of scents. I like spicy, boozy/rum, tobacco aromas. Right now I smell like Aramis Havana and Tommy Bahama most days.

    But I'm also trying to put together (by sampling first of course) a classic "old school" collection that works for me. Will be trying out Azzaro PH, Aramis, Giorgio Beverly Hills, and the like.

    The irony is... I joined Basenotes to try and find a better signature scent for me. I now rotate between about 6 or 7 a week, and the rotation group changes with the seasons.

    The upside is that, these days, I smell good!

    Shanghai shouldn't be to hard to find

    Seriously though, I am too new to the hobby to have one, as I have barely gotten to know all the new bottles and samples I have amassed in the past few months. I must say, I have been wearing M7 from a sample the last 2 days, and I love it. When I get a bottle, this will be in the running for a sig scent, but I doubt I'll ever have one, as there are just too many beautiful masculine scents around to stick with one, even a majority of the time. I can't even oick one vetiver or one gourmande.

    I have never had a signature scent, even when I only used 3 bottles in rotation - I didn't have one.

    Now that I'm closing in on 150 frags, I still don't have one.

    A lot of basenoters have 500-1000+ bottles of juice, so don't expect many die hard BN'ers to reply here


    But my all time favourite frags are - YSL Body Kouros, YSL Kouros, YSL Rive Gauche, YSL Opium, Azzaro Pour Homme, Azzaro Acteur, Chanel Platinum Egoiste, Chanel Egoiste, Chanel Antaeus, Chanel Allure Homme, Dior Fahrenheit, Dior Homme Sport, Bvlgari Black, Boss Bottled, D&G Pour Homme, Aramis Havana, Oscar De la Renta Pour Lui Dark Green, Davidoff Original, Zino Davidoff & Davidoff Cool Water.

    A couple of niche frags are growing on me fast, but haven't tested them long enough to call them my all time favs yet.....I only started this frag collecting in August last year......after a 20 year break from collecting frags
