    Default smoke?

    i've heard T42 and fumerie turque described as smokey, but i don't really get that from them, at least not to the degree I was expecting. can anyone recommend something with a more pronounced smoke note?

    thanks

    If you want smoke, try the CdG Series: Incense. Nothing but smoke. Bring the fire extinguisher.

    CdG Synthetic Series Tar is pure big city pollution complete with smog, gas fumes and smell of asphalt.

    There isn't a whole lot of talk about the Diptyque room spray I mentioned here on the boards, but there should be. I remember there was when I joined Basenotes, but it seems like it has become forgotten. Extremely good price on such a good product: http://www.lusciouscargo.com/Merchan..._code=DIPRS001

    Edit: and that is not to use as a room spray I should say, but as just another fragrance. I wasn't sure if that came across or not.

    The room spray is aggressively smokey and almost harsh. Smells like a giant roaring hearth with a lot of cinder. Probably closest to that level of smoke is Avignon, although Avignon is sourer and citric in comparison.

    I think Sonoma Scent Studio makes something called Fireside, which smelled of lichen, damp, green logs, burnt logs, and log fires (smelled while outside, not inside). There is definitely an outdoor element to it, as if you smell the fire while approaching its source. The Web site indicates this scent has been made even smokier, so it's probably eye-watering now. May be worth a sample!

    I find SL Gris Clair to be a bit of a smoky sort of scent. Smoke and lavender.

    Another smokey MPG to consider is Secret Melange. Like previous reviews have mentioned, it's oranges, cloves and peat smoke. I love it.
    Are you not entertained??? Is this not why you are here??

    If you can find it Cumming by Alan Cumming has a very smoky scent and is worth the effort to find it.

    I agree with this one. Also, SMN Cuba has an amazing smoke note in it too.

    Dyptique also has a Firewood - Feu de Bois roomspray, I once sampled the scented candle and it was fantastic, the name says it all, can't get closer to a burning fire than that

    To me, Gucci pour homme smells like a big ol' bonfire, in a good way, of course. Ava Luxe makes Kretek, which is based on clove cigarettes and is very nice, too.

    Gucci PH is very woody. I personally wouldnt regard it as smoky though.
    Try Francesco Smalto, its quite smoky.

    But when it comes to SMOKY....

    Eau des Iles most certainly. Also:

    Lonestar Memories
    Rebellius
    Palais Jamais
    Tabac Blond
    Habanita

    The first three remain smoky right through their development. The second pair dry down in different (though still compelling) directions. Oh, and ignore the fact that Tabac Blond and Habanita are marketed to women. They're both plenty macho on a man.

    Tea for two by L'artisan has a lapsang souchong note-a tea dried over pinewood fires lending a smokey flavor and scent, tempered by sweeter vanilla/milk notes as well as tempered by a ginger note. It starts smokey on me, ending sweeter. Worth a try.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned Comme des Garcon Man 2!

    Smells just like a camp fire. Smokey and woody. Gets MANY compliments (especially if I'm shopping at REI).

    * for those that don't know, REI is an outdoors (camping and hiking) store.
